Generation X

In a time before the MCU, before X-Men, before even Blade, it was the mid-90s. Comic book adaptations were ropey at best.

One such example at trying to put superheroes on screen was this forgotten TV movie: Generation X.

Based on the Marvel comic of the same name, this X-Men spinoff didn't quite set the world alight. In this episode, Morgan explains why.

We discuss:

  • More dodgy accents Don Cheadle would be proud of
  • Where did the budget go?
  • The brilliance of Sweet Valley High's theme tune
  • The strange use of 'Muffin Man' as an insult
  • Why Stretch Armstrong is a better superhero than Skin

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
