Mystery Men

Whether you're a ticking time bomb of rage or a master of cutlery, we're here for you. In our latest episode we're tackling the underrated 1999 superhero comedy, Mystery Men!

Tom teaches Morgan (though, it turns out Morgan didn't need any teaching) all about the making of the Ben Stiller comedy, also staring William H Macy, Hank Azaria, Jaenene Garofalo, Greg Kinnear, Geoffrey Rush, Eddie Izzard, Kel Mitchell, Paul Reubens and even Tom Waits.

Particularly drunk, we discuss:

  • How this time, Doom Bar was an acquired taste
  • Those 'This Is DVD' adverts
  • How Mystery Men must have inspired The Boys, according to Tom
  • Tom invents several words, unucsessfully
  • How it's everyone's finest roles
  • What happened to Claire Forlani after the 90s?
  • Eddie Izzard taking it deadly seriously
  • Michael Bay brings the brewskis

Clips used:

  • Mystery Men (Universal)
  • This Is DVD

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.
