The Gene Pool Variety Hour!
Episode 77: Monsters and Ghosts!

Episode 77: Monsters and Ghosts!

August 2, 2022
  • The Geek Question of the Week was pretty simple and straightforward:  Do you believe in the supernatural? Ok, well, that was pretty broad. See where we go with it. 
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we take a look at the 2020 fantasy adventure movie straight outta China... Monster Run. I think it is like looking at the Dark Side of Pokemon, but Connor vehemently disagrees. Don't be dissin' on his balls!  
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens. Lots of chickens.

Episode 76: Girls Just Wanna Have Gun!

Episode 76: Girls Just Wanna Have Gun!

July 25, 2022
  • The Geek Question of the Week:  If you could ‘TRON’ your way into any game you’ve ever played, what would it be, what would you want to accomplish, and why? It's amazing how much we overlap. The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree! 
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we look at the female badass spy-driven action flick from earlier in the year, The 355. Connor was clearly more impressed than Sean was, but come take a listen...  
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens.

Episode 75: Do Robots Dream?

Episode 75: Do Robots Dream?

July 12, 2022
  • Episode 75, with more chocolately goodness and a caramel center! Do Robots Dream?
  • Throwing out some love to the @worldsokayestDM, Dennis Robinson, for the release of his first comic, Lycan: Solomon's Odyssey!
  • We discuss Thor Love and Thunder and debate the current state of the MCU! In a word... inconsistent?
  • The Geek Question of the Week:  Name a comic hero you wish could get their own TV series or movie story arc? Some obscure and not-so-obscure stuff here! 
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we talk about the dystopian future android mystery thriller, Zone 414. Interesting movie where they did too much in some areas and not enough in others! Check out our thoughts!  
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens.

Episode 74: Live from the Sun!

Episode 74: Live from the Sun!

June 27, 2022
  • Live from the surface of the sun, aka the attack studio with a crapped-out AC, it's Episoder74! The Geek Question of the Week:  If there was a theme park based on you and your life, what would be the gimmick, the mascot, and some of the main rides or attractions of your park? Not sure where we went with this, but Sean at least ended up down memory lane of serious injuries, band trips, and "Rick, you mean that's it?" 
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we watch an alcoholic, divorced, stressed out father decompensate as he tries to solve a series of murders and figure out whether the culprit is a serial killer... or a werewolf... in the 2020 flick, The Wolf of Snow Hollow. Um, yeah.   
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens.

Episode 73: Goosfraba!

  • The Geek Question of the Week took a more serious turn this week: In engineering and scientific research, which do you think should be a first priority: military application or civilian comfort? A decidedly more in-depth conversation happened, though we did manage to get in references to Terminator, Matrix, and Wall-E...LOL 
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we get in touch with our anger in the 2003 Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson comedy, Anger Management. Cameos and supporting cast for the win! 
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens.

Episode 72: We’re BAAAACK!!!!!

June 14, 2022

We're back after a six-month hiatus! New job, new life, new studio, new music, same two buffoons! Sorry for the mic issues but we're still figuring out the new layout and sound scheme! And we realize... we're still clueless about what we're doing!

  • The Geek Question of the Week is: Would you rather have to fight a chicken every time you get in a car, or a lion once a year? Don't ask me - it was Connor's idea. And he's dead wrong.  
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we revisit the first movie we ever talked about way back in Episode 1 - the 2004 Turkish sci-fi parody, G.O.R.A. Still bad, still awesome, still weird! 
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens.

Episode 71: Are You Naughty or Nice?

  • The Geek Question of the Week is: What toy or present from Christmas past do you wish you had again? Obviously, Sean has more years to pull from, but fun memories!  
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we discuss the 2010 quirky Christmas twist on the myth of Santa,  Rare Exports! Apparently Santa was the naughty one all along! Sheesh!  
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens.  
  • One note: since Sean will be moving and starting a new job soon, this will be the last episode for a few weeks as he gets moved and settled in to his new place in Ohio. See you in 2022!

  • The Geek Question of the Week is: What fictional story on or underwater is your favorite and why? Loved all of these we talked about... even Waterworld. LOL 
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we rave over the 2018 Christmas shark serial killer flick, Santa Jaws! Think Home alone meets, well, Jaws.  Nerds win the days!

Episode 69: Get Yer Mind Out of the Gutter!

November 30, 2021
  • The Geek Question of the Week is: Between animated and live-action, which do you think is the better medium for superhero content? Pretty good discussion, I think, and we landed on opposite sides of the debate. What's new, right?
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we rave over the 2007 crime thriller starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, American Gangster! Wow, what a good movie with an amazing cast! Though it definitely takes creative license with the story, it is based on the true story of Frank Lucas and Richie Roberts and heroin and organized crime in Harlem.  
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens.

  • Welcome to Episode 68: Gag Me with a Spoon!
  • So much going on! So much to talk about! And not all of it good!
  • Sean goes off on Shang-Chi (in a GOOD way!), Eternals, and Red Notice (in a BAD way)!
  • The Geek Question of the Week is: What are the conspiracy theories you think are stupid and just don't buy into? Sorry, Flat Earthers, but we're coming at you HARD. Moon landing conspiracies too!
  • In our Roll for Credits segment, we talk about the 1986 cookie cutter 80's flick about skateboarding, love, and family drama, Thrashin'! Josh Brolin at 18! Thanos on a skateboard! Skateboard gangs, Red Hot Chili Peppers when they were YOUNG, and bad wigs! Good music though! LOL  
  • And as always, geekery, video games, and chickens.
