Geeks Who Drink: Hot Pub Time Machine vs. On a Bender Recap


By Carolyn Deas (@carolyndeas)

That’s right, folks! The geeks were back at it again with an all-new episode of Geeks Who Drink on Syfy. If you didn’t get a chance to watch it, here’s what you missed!

John DiMaggio (voice actor in Adventure Time and Futurama, among others) led his team “On a Bender” against David Giuntoli’s (Grimm) “Hot Pub Time Machine.” David’s team took an early lead in the speed round knowing which movies titles were a first take or a remade edition of the movie. “On a Bender” came back during the trivia round knowing what actor sported mullets back in the day as well as the catchphrase for Captain Picard.

In this week’s physical challenge, the team captains had to channel their inner Jedi to pop all of their balloons while blindfolded and wearing a Yoda backpack. John’s slow but steady strategy made him the champion. David claimed that he couldn’t figure out where he was in relation to the balloons. Duh, David. That’s the whole point of the game.

One of my favorite games they play is Mathbusters. This week’s question was the biblical number of the beast plus the circles of Hell in Dante’s Inferno. Both teams got it correct with 675.

The night’s final round was decided on by “On a Bender” for winning the physical challenge so the category was “Bad Ass Mother Movies” where the contestants had to name movies in which Samuel L. Jackson acted in or voiced. It was pretty heated until the end when John DiMaggio, after pulling out several movies that I’d never heard of, claimed victory for his team.

Tune in next week to see who is the King of the Geeks!
