Mister T: Mystery of the Golden Medallions

Join Scott and Kevin as they take a look back an an obscure Hanna-Barbera cartoon centered around a larger-than-life character who was a real-life pop culture powerhouse: "Mister T"! Listen as they breakdown the glorious episode "Mystery of the Golden Medallions", in which gymnastics coach Mr. T leads his team around the unrealistically steep streets of San Francisco and attempt to solve a convoluted mystery involving gold chains (not his, amazingly), a missing little brother, and stolen video game programming-all while struggling to welcome a new gymnast to the team: Woody Daniels, played by Phil Lamarr in his first credited role! They'll also discuss some of the strange supporting characters such as the annoying Spike, the disturbing Dozer, Jeff the idiot, and many more! From inaccurate math and physics that is totally bananas, to a head scratching plot and hilarious animation mistakes, this has it all! So engage your emergency brake, hide your gold jewelry, and shake your head back and forth in bewilderment along with us! Pity us fools!

The Tick (2016)

Join Scott and his special guests Kevin and Matt as they take a look at Amazon's new pilot about a mysterious superhero and his young neurotic sidekick uncovering the mystery surrounding their lawless city: "The Tick"! Listen as they discuss the history of the character of the The Tick, from 18-year-old Ben Edlund's creation for New England Comics' newsletters, to a much-loved 1994 animated series, and a short-lived live action reboot in 2001. They'll talk about Peter Serafinowicz's amazing talent for voices, the specific look of The Tick and Arthur's costumes, and how Wally Pfister's direction brings an interesting grounded reality to The Tick's off-the-wall comic book universe. They'll also point out nods to the animated series, share details you may have missed, and also Ben Edlund answers some tweets about the characters! So drink a cup of melted ice cream, watch out for falling ships, and let destiny make listening to this episode your "new plan"! Spoon!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Teaser Trailer)

Join Scott and his guests, Hamish and Paul, as they analyze every frame of the latest offering from the Star Wars franchise: the teaser trailer for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story"! Listen as they discuss how the premise for this film had been hidden in plain sight within A New Hope the whole time, and how the genesis of this movie was nothing more than a quick pitch from a longtime Lucas Film employee. They'll discuss the many rumors surrounding Felicity Jones' character, Jyn Erso, if Diego Luna is playing Poe Dameron's father, if Darth Vader will make an appearance, where Forrest Whittaker, Donny Yen, and Wen Jiang's characters fit into the story, if Palpatine, Snoke, or someone else is inside of that glowing column, if Alan Tudyk is playing a converted Empire droid, and much, much more! From new characters and locations to familiar ships and bases, they discuss it all! We are only a few months away from yet another Star Wars movie! So speculate along with us and may the force be with you!

BONUS EPISODE: Oscillating Fan For Your Home

Join Scott and Hamish as they take a ridiculously close look at the Netflix original video that is taking the world by (wind?) storm: Oscillating Fan For Your Home! Listen as they breakdown every little detail, including the window, the sunglasses, the books, the exciting glass of ice water, and, of course, the fan itself. They'll discuss the video's possible therapeutic properties as a sleep or relaxation aid, its possibility of being a facet of a larger story the camera is facing away from, and how it holds up as a piece of experimental art. They'll speculate, scrutinize, and propose "fan" theories that'll make your head spin...like, you know,...a fan.

Space: 1999: Breakaway

Join Scott and Steve as they party like it's 1999 and review "Breakaway" the first episode of an oft-forgotten campy piece of 70s science fiction: Space: 1999! From its strangely placed funky theme song, to its bland, impractical uniforms, they talk about it all! Listen as they detail the adventure of the newly appointed Moonbase Alpha commander, John Koenig and Dr. Helena Russell (played by a disgruntled Martin Landau and his, at the time, wife, Barbara Bain), as they attempt to solve the mystery of the cleverly named "Meta-probe astronaut virus infection" (which also might be radiation or magnetism) and...oh yeah, while they are working on the case, THE ENTIRE MOON breaks away from Earth's orbit! They'll also discuss the show's rocky start, from personal problems among the cast and crew to technical issues in the filming and production, and how this entire series was really intended to be another season of the previously failed sci-fi series "UFO". So zip up your sleeve, grab a cup of introspective tea, and laugh at the future of 1999 with us!

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (Japanese Trailer, ABC TGIT Trailer, and 30 Second TV Spot)

Join Scott and Star Wars expert Paul as they breakdown every little detail of not one, not two, but THREE new trailers for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! (We know, we know, we thought we were done with these too!) Three trailers that offered many new interesting clues, and raised new questions as well. First, they discuss the trailer aired that during ABC's Thursday Night "TGIT" block, (including some ridiculous testimonials by the casts of various ABC dramas.) They'll talk about Finn and Rey's introduction to one another, additional clues to Finn's origin as an escaped stormtrooper, and a new scene of the resistance base. Next, they'll discuss the Japanese trailer, including what new intriguing clues can be gathered by translating the Japanese subtitles. Especially one potentially huge line not heard in English. And finally, they breakdown the new 30 second TV spot, and how its very short scenes can still tell us quite a lot about the characters and their locations during the movie. Then, combining all of these new clues, they'll discuss Maz Kanata's role in the Star Wars saga, what her cryptic lines of dialogue mean, if Finn is the new successor to Anakin and Luke, and much, much more! (Oh, they talk about the new posters too!) Does Rey live in an old AT-AT? Do podracers' flags from The Phantom Menace make an appearance? Is our favorite fishy admiral back? They talk about it! May the sequels be with you!
