Geeking Out On Big Time Movie Actor Swaps

With Jeremy Renner stepping in for Matt Damon in The Bourne Legacy, it got me thinking about other times an actor left a big franchise. Sometimes it worked out (Vin Diesel) sometimes it didn’t (Crispin Glover). 

My other episodes on MSN:

Geeking Out On Meryl Streep

Geeking Out On Remakes

Geeking Out On Comic Con, Parts 1 & 2

Check out my newest show!

So apparently Michael Scott is a big fan of the Bates Motel…and lives in San Francisco? Maybe someone stole his identity! Sounds like a case for Agent Michael Scarn. 
I saw this while looking for clips for my show on remakes. This Psycho one is so baffling to me. The names in both books are the same, but they changed the date of the check in?! So strange. Also, during the famous shower scene, it’s kinda the same but with quick cuts to time lapse storm clouds!! I don’t get it.

Geeking Out On Breaking Bad, Season 5 Premiere

Breaking Bad! It’s back and I love it!!!! Such an amazing episode. Here are my thoughts on it…which also prompted a moratorium on two of my favorite references. 

Posted my newest episode earlier of my Breaking Bad premiere thoughts to the new blog, (my new home for the show Formerly Known as tvGeek)! Follow me at Geeking Out On, I don’t just post new eps there but also normal blogging of things like this gem!

geekingouton:

I recently learned how to make GIFs, something I should have learned a long time ago. This one is probably my favorite so far but my first one will always have a special place in my heart.

Follow my new blog!

tvGeek, “The Killing” finale

__

Boy I was not a fan of this finale. A bummer end to a show that might be over for good. Also, if I look a little weird it’s because I didn’t have time to shoot in my garage at home so I did it on the green screen at work! I think it looks weird but don’t worry it was a one time thing.

In other news, look for some big tvGeek changes next week!

tv-geek:

“Missing” Series Premiere, tvGeek #3.05

This show is the WORST. Also the BEST because I kinda love it. Hilariously awful, this one!!!  

tv-geek:

tvGeek Mini-episode: How I Met Your Mother, S7E18

Decided to try something new and shoot a quick review on my webcam right after watching the episode. My thinking is that with the cutdown on shooting time and the reduced length, these will be easier for me to get out on a regular basis. We’ll see!

Also, expect a normal tvGeek in a few days.

tvGeek #4.02, “Life’s Too Short” Premiere

My thoughts on Ricky and Steve’s new show. Sigh. I don’t love it. This show feels like it was made for people who tune in wanting more “Golden Globes Ricky”. Snooze. 

tv-geek:

“Santa Size Me” OFFICIAL RED BAND TRAILER

Look, I know this isn’t TV-related but I gotta post it to get the word out. It’s for a contest that comedian Doug Benson is holding asking for a trailer to a sequel to Super Size Me where Morgan Spurlock eats “part of a cookie, drinks some milk, for every household on the planet.” If you like my trailer let Doug know on his twitter @DougBenson! The contest runs till the 15th and winners get to appear on the podcast!

Also, more TV Geeks will be coming in the new year!

I need to know.

I don’t remember the last time I laughed out loud, alone, while reading Tumblr before this post. Fucking hysterical.

TV Geek #2.15, Louie and Dane Cook Make Nice

Here’s my recap on last week’s Louie. I could not believe that episode even happened. Also it reminded me of one of my favorite Sitcom Life Lessons that I first learned through a forgotten sitcom starring the 90s most powerful brotherhood, The Lawrences. 

Just in time for tonight’s episode! More at tvgeekshow.com.

At 1:13 AM on July 25th, Twitter user and opera aficionado @dario_moreno asked fellow Twitter user and international superstar @AlecBaldwin to name his favorite opera.
Two minutes later, Baldwin replied “MB”, and, in the process, set off a furious two day long “What’s your favorite…” tweet session with curious fans.
Because I am a dope, I went through Baldwin’s feed with a fine tooth internet comb and listed everything I learned below. Feel free to use this information to strike up a conversation with the man if you ever run into him.
