Pop Culture Talk That’s Out Of This World


Today on GeekFest Rants we dive into horror and crime.  Join Carlos as he reviews the brand new Prime anthology series, Them: Covenant.  This show combines the horror of 1950s racism with a supernatural twist.  Then we take a turn to the show that made Pedro Pascal a star (aside from Game of Thrones) in the crime genre with Narcos.  Here they chronicle the Colombian drug wars from the 70s to the 90s.

I want to thank all you guys for spending this last year indoors with me. It's been hard, it's been weird but most of all it's been fun.
