Episode 51 – If Done Right…No Can Defend



Posted by Steve

On this episode I am joined by current co-host of Media Junkyard and former SHoE co-host Robin Burdge as we discuss one of the staples from the 1980’s – The Karate Kid Franchise. What made these movies so great? What did we learn? What did we love? How does the remake of the Karate Kid stand up in comparison? That’s right, it took taunting him with a guest appearance on this show, but Robin finally sat down to watch 2010’s remake of The Karate Kid. What did he think? Will we fight? And what is quite possibly the best joke that Steve and Derek have ever pulled off? All this and more on this episode of Geek Out Loud.

Episode 21 – Like, Totally Awesome Part Deux



Posted by Steve

The discussion of the eighties continues in this podcast as Steve takes a look at some of the television of the eighties.  Sure to infuriate you as he most likely leaves out your favorite show from the decade that laid the foundation for a whole generation of geeks.  A special Halloween segment and the usual listener e-mails rounds out the show.  (Steve may or may not get choked up at one of the e-mails.)
