The moment we’ve been waiting for all season has finally arrived. The Dolphins and the Giants play each other on Monday Night Football, and Pat and Chris discuss the crappy seasons both teams are having. Feel the apathy! Then, the guys discuss two of the latest movie trailers that dropped in the past week, Independence Day: Resurgence and X-Men: Apocalypse. Finally, Pat demands to know why Chris is less than whelmed by America’s Girlfriend, Jennifer Lawrence.
Trekkies & Trekkers rejoice! Rus & Pat are back and excited about the recently announced Star Trek television revival! It’s not all Romulan Ale and Earl Grey tea, however, and we have a few reservations about CBS’s plans. So what if we get confused about the Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E — our Trek-cred shall not be denied!
We keep this episode under an hour, so we bet you 10 bars of gold-pressed latinum that you can make it through in one sitting.
We’re back! We recorded this episode a couple weeks ago, but Rus only now got around to editing it and getting it online for all to hear. This episode deals with two different time travel related films, Groundhog Dayand Edge of Tomorrow. We also talk a little Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Rus and Pat are back! After nearly a month on hiatus (due to the usual work/life issues) we begin by discussing some of the projects we’ve been working on in favor of sleep. We move on and talk about the new documentary I Am Chris Farley and then dive into the new Star Trek fan film / pilot episode Star Trek: Renegades ! Join us for this, a boatload of tangents, and an intro that will just not stop!
As it was, so it is again. Meaning: we talk Star Trek again! Specifically, we discuss William Shatner’s new Trek documentaryChaos on the Bridge,exploring the tumultuous path of the creation of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Gene Roddenberry’s vision for the future. Before we get into that though we give a brief tribute to “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, who died last week, too young. Of course that takes us down some tangents dealing with everything from pro-wrestling to the current state of internet-fueled outrage, but somehow we get back on track — er — Trek.
Rus & Pat are back after about a month, with Episode 25! That’s a silver anniversary… or something. After a brief discussion of Rus’s relocation to Los Angeles, the episode is mostly all-Star Trek as we pay tribute to Leonard Nimoy, who left us recently, and we talk about Star Trek returning to television and what we’d like to see in a new Trek series.
Twenty episodes! And episode 20 is a very special one indeed; we have Red Hot Rebellion’s Jim Tramontana as our guest! Jim is not only a talented musician and singer, but he’s a huge comic and sci-fi geek and a font of nerdy knowledge! We discuss Red Hot Rebellion‘s upcoming album and graphic novel The Mission, being released February 3, and the band’s album/comic release concert on January 31 in Dayton, Ohio. Jim regales us with his celebrity impressions, and we delve into some nerdy discussions on music and Star Trek before finishing off with another great impression by Jim.
After about a week and a half, we have a lot to catch up on and many tangential paths to go down, so it’s a long episode that may be best listened to in chunks. But how and where you listen is your business, of course! Topics include the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek) meeting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., New York City, optimism for the future, and why the douche is a useless hygiene product but a versatile word in current vernacular.
