Couch Potato Theater: Real Genius (1985)

Welcome to Couch Potato Theater here on the Fandom Podcast Network. On Couch Potato Theater we celebrate our favorite movies! You may own your favorite movies digitally or on physical media. However when they air on your cable TV, you love what you are watching so much, you don't get off the couch! And that's the definition of what our show is all about. 

Join us on the Couch as we look back and celebrate one of the most popular 1980's teen science comedies, Real Genius (1985)! This movie has a high re-watchability and represents everything that Couch Potato Theater is all about.

Real Genius is a 1985 science fiction comedy film directed by Martha Coolidge, written by Neal Israel, Pat Proft and Peter Torokvei, and starring Val Kilmer and Gabriel Jarret. The film is set on the campus of Pacific Tech, a science and engineering university similar to Caltech. Chris Knight (Kilmer) is a genius in his senior year working on a chemical laser. Mitch Taylor (Jarret) is a new student on campus who is paired up with Knight to work on the project.

Real Genius (1985) Plot synopsis:
Mitch Taylor is one of the youngest students ever accepted to a university known for its programs for geniuses. He partners up with his roommate, science club legend Chris Knight, on a project to develop a high-powered laser. Together with their hyperkinetic friends, they employ their intellects in the pursuit of bigger blasts, practical jokes, and a deeper understanding of what real genius means. When they find out that their professor intends to turn their work over to the military for use as a weapon, they decide to get even.

For this special presentation of Real Genius (1985) your Couch Potato Theater co-host Kevin welcome's fellow Fandom Podcast Network co-founder Kyle, Blood of Kings Highlander podcast co-host Lee, and new special guest Lacee Aderhold! Real Genius (1985) is one of the most revered 80's comedies of all time! We hope you enjoy this episode of Couth Potato Theater. Welcome to the couch!
