Jurassic Park

OK, it may have been a month or so since Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came out, but here’s our Jurassic Park episode!

Here, Tom welcomes Morgan to the world of the Jurassic Park series, from the original book by Michael Crichton, to all five movies, video games, toys and more.

We also discover the dodgy Carnosaur franchise, the cancelled TV series that Spielberg couldn’t be bothered to look at, and what Tim and Lex Murphy did next.

Hold onto your butts, this is one epic ride...

The Jurassic Park franchise began in 1990, when Universal bought the rights to Michael Crichton’s novel before it was even published.

In 1993, Steven Spielberg’s film version was a massive success, becoming the highest-grossing film of all time. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough, it made dinosaurs cool again.

It had two further sequels, and in 2015, it returned as a soft reboot in Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt. This was followed by 2018’s Fallen Kingdom, both of which were massive box office hits.

Developments since broadcast:

  • A sixth Jurassic Park film – Jurassic World: Dominion – is in the works, and will be released in summer 2022. It will also bring back Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum in lead roles.

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.
