Guardians of the Geekery Episode 5
Things to Note:
- Graham Odom and Field Cantey are also members of the Robot Johnson family. We are not sure why Tania hates Graham so much – you should ask her – but be prepared to help her out on the Facebook game Kitchen Scramble because she is evidently addicted.
- Timothy Omundson was on Psych, Judging Amy, and the 2001 TV Movie The Luck of the Irish. (see a video of him in the trailer below)
- Robin Lord Taylor plays Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin) on Gotham.
- For the record, we do not believe that the “main guy” in Age of Ultron is mad because he is voiced by James Spader, no matter what Tania says.
- Edward James Olmos joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD as Robert Gonzales. Robert Gonzales is not a known character from the MCU (Marvel Comic Universe) so we aren’t sure yet what role he may play.
- In case you missed it previously, Carol the Cat hates the Elvis song “Blue Christmas.”
- The management does not acknowledge that we actually have sleeper agents that will attack people like Bernie Gunder who do not listen to our podcast.
- It is NOT Starneslord’s last show. No matter what he may say.
