Geeks Represent!

 Growing up in the 90s when you turned on the tv at primetime, chances were you’d see very few people of color. For many, it was considered diverse if you had one black guy in the cast if there was one at all. But as time went on, we started seeing awesome shows that reminded us that stories didn’t have to be about white people to be successful. Let’s talk about the groundbreaking shows for people of color. Was there a show you grew up with that you felt was groundbreaking? Please leave it in the comments or review.

At Geeks Represent, we especially value stories told from the perspectives of people of all kinds. We feel it’s incredibly important to not only have these stories told with sincerity but to tell them well through accurate portrayals of people of color. This is why it’s disheartening when instead of taking the opportunity to portray these characters as they were meant to be portrayed, they’re miscast with white actors. So without further ado, let’s talk about racebending and whitewashing in Hollywo

Geeks Represent!

 We’ve talked about a variety of topics in season one, including some pretty complex and serious issues. And while those are great to talk about, sometimes it’s nice to talk about simple things. This brings us to tonight’s topic, time travel! It’s one of the most popular and used aspects of science fiction and fantasy and there are so many ways it’s been portrayed. And yet anytime it shows up it drives us crazy! Here are our thoughts on time travel.

So without further ado, please allow us to give a warm welcome to Banzai Wolf Burger!

Hopefully, you learned a lot about fitness in that episode, and today we’ll be talking more about the food and cooking side of staying healthy both physically and even culturally. So without further ado, here’s Cooking with Geeks!

In 2016, Warner Bros released Suicide Squad, DC’s attempt to introduce the comic book team to the movie universe. This isn’t about that movie. Today we’ll be talking about “The” Suicide Squad currently available in theaters and on HBO Max. It’s almost the exact same premise: criminals get extorted into doing high-risk missions for the government. And yet, James Gunn manages to give us a completely different movie. So let’s get into it.
