Wonder Woman (Trailer) and Justice League (Trailer)

Join Shawn and Scott as they breakdown and review the new trailers for the fourth and fifth installments of the DC Extended Universe: "Wonder Woman" and "Justice League"! Listen as they review these highly anticipated trailers that premiered at San Diego Comic Con and discuss every little detail! From the "Wonder Woman" trailer, they'll discuss Gal Gadot's portrayal of the immortal demigoddess Diana, and her first adventure away from the land of Themyscira in the early 20th century. They'll talk about the look of this version of the Wonder Woman costume, as well as Chris Pine's character, Steve Trevor, and his importance to the Wonder Woman franchise. From "Justice League", they'll discuss the attempts by Bruce Wayne to recruit Jason Momoa's intimidating Aquaman and Ezra Miller's introverted Flash to aid him in preparing for an extraterrestrial threat. They'll also talk about the Apokoliptian villain Steppenwolf and the Motherboxes he'll be seeking on Earth. Plus, some rumors, a little bit of Arrowverse talk, and Shawn has some strong opinions of the "Star Trek: Discovery" teaser. So much to cover, so many heroes, may the Source be with you!

COMMENTARY: Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Join Scott and special guest, Star Wars expert Paul as they travel down a painful road, delve deep into a dark memory from their childhoods, and watch George Lucas' first installment of the Star Wars prequels: the infamous "Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace"! Listen as they discuss some of the terrible CGI, the crazy names and backstories for the many background characters, and make a somewhat modest defense for Jake Lloyd. (Hey, he was just a kid.) They'll point out cameos you may have missed, talk about "Episode I Racer" for Nintendo 64, and reminisce about falling for the hype and buying merchandise for the movie. All in real time as they watch the movie!!! Oh, and a "mystery guest" also calls in! 

It's a regular episode, but as an added bonus, it also syncs up with the movie! So, if you can, pop in your copy of the movie and listen along, otherwise just listen and enjoy our misery!

Join Lily, Scott, as they're joined by special guest Jaron (AKA Bonnaventure James, the great electronic musician from Calgary, Alberta) to breakdown Phantasms, the strange episode from the seventh season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Listen as they discuss the imagery of Data's nightmares, the convenience of his many abilities, and why you should never buy your engine parts from Thanatos VII. Not to mention all of the delicious cellular peptide cake talk! This is a special one, but as Freud once said, "Sometimes a podcast is just a podcast." 

All music used in this episode is from Bonnaventure James' EP "Not By A Mile". Download it on iTunes: https://itun.es/us/OxYE6

Star Trek: Amok Time

Join Lily, Scott, and Shawn as they remember the great Leonard Nimoy and discuss the iconic first episode of Star Trek's second season: Amok Time! Listen as they take you through the story of a lonely Vulcan and his mating urges. They'll explain why Spock is pretty much a giant salmon, how Vulcan courtship is merely reciting Michael Bolton lyrics, and why this whole episode is very awkward. Forget Pon Farr, live long and podcast!
