Guardians of the Geekery Episode 7
Things to Note:
- Lana was the best guest dog ever! And yes, she is named after Archer.
- Tania, Brandon and Graham are all members of Robot Johnson also (RoJo).
- We don’t actually have a special call-in portion, but Field was scared we would have because Graham Odom likes to torture him.
- Fab Movran is the member of Milli Vanilli that is still alive. Rob Pilatus passed away in 1998.
- “That British Guy” on Hannibal and husband of Claire Danes is Hugh Dancy. He plays Will Graham on Hannibal.
- We are NOT posting the sad scene from Homeland that Field Cantey suggested. We are not that mean.
- Carol the Cat is actually the program director for ConCarolinas, if you didn’t know.
- Randall Park played President Kim in The Interview.
- Idris Elba will be Heimdall in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
- Giddygeeker loves Melissa McCarthy and would happily be compared to her. Mostly.
- Mat Schantz is actually a lawyer, not just a member of a sketch comedy group – hence why he is glad John Cleese was almost a barrister.
- Sean Keenan – Field evidently wants to hug you. You have been warned.
