Dorky Geeky Nerdy #156 | Alien Movie Trivia

In space, no one can hear your trivia questions. This week, we dive into the dark void with Alien Movie Trivia. That is, movies from the Alien film franchise (not just films with aliens in them).

The first movie from 1979, was probably my first horror film, albeit heavily edited for television. But still, the franchise has stuck with me (and audiences) for a long time now.

Dorky Geeky Nerdy #153 | Transformers Trivia

This week’s episode more than meets the eye. Well, actually, just the subject matter. Otherwise it’s just another thirty trivia questions and this week, we’re tackling Transformers Trivia.

This is our last episode of 2021, so I want to wish everyone out there a safe and happy New Year. This year wasn’t the one we had hoped for, so here’s to 2022 being better. If you haven’t gotten your booster shot yet, go get one. It’s the best thing we “regular Joes and Janes” can do to push back the pandemic.

And hats off to doctors, nurses, and everyone else out there keeping us safe, healthy, and fed. A double-Happy New Year to you!

Dorky Geeky Nerdy #152 | Name That Christmas Movie Trivia

Can you Name That Christmas Movie? We’ll give you three actors from the film and you have to guess the Christmas movie (or a movie that takes place during Christmas).

I know these “Name That” episodes are some of the listeners’ favorites, so why not dive in for the Holidays? As always, you’ve got three rounds of ten questions each. Good luck and happy holidays.

Update: Geeky Round #4 initially had the wrong answer (I read the answer for #3 a second time). If you re-download the episode, you’ll have the right answer for #4.

Denis Villeneuve to direct ‘Rendezvous with Rama’

The Arrival and Dune director will tackle one of the longest-gestating films in the genre, Arthur C Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama. Morgan Freeman has been trying to get a movie made for a very long time and is still attached as a Producer.

If you haven’t read the classic yet, I highly recommend it. But beware of books purporting to be sequels. These are lies. Rama stands alone as a singular novel and needs nothing else.

Dorky Geeky Nerdy #151 | Name That Christmas Song Trivia

They’re blaring out of stores and radios, so why not have a little Christmas Song Trivia to kick off the season. This week, I’m giving you a snippet of the lyrics and you’ve got to guess the song. Some are common tunes and others are more obscure, traditional ones.

Either way, I think everyone is going to have a little fun. Grab some egg nog and let’s get started.

Feel like cheating? Here’s a Spotify Playlist with all the songs on it.

Dorky Geeky Nerdy #150 | The Hobbit Trivia

All snuggled up in your Hobbit hole? Let’s get into some Hobbit Trivia for this week’s show. We covered The Lord of the Rings way, way back in Episode Four, so it’s high time we got to the original work by JRR Tolkien.

As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. Miss too many and there’s no second breakfast for you.

Also: 150 episodes! Seems like the episodes are just flying by.
