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!

Rick and Morty: Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind

Join Scott and Hamish as they travel across space and time to review "Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind", an episode of the most outrageous animated sci-fi comedy to ever air on television: the hilarious Rick and Morty! Listen as they discuss Rick and Morty's beginnings as The Adventures of Doc and Mharti, a series of shorts made by Justin Roiland for Channel 101, to his teaming up with Dan Harmon, and getting picked up by Adult Swim. They'll also discuss the mobile game "Pocket Mortys" and its connections to this episode, the popular comic books based on this series, as well as some crossovers with Gravity Falls and The Simpsons. From the easter eggs you may have missed, to pancakes' syrup absorption rates, to visiting some parallel universes of their own, Hamish and Scott cover it all! So sit back on a human, use your pizza to order a tasty phone, and enjoy the show! Wubba Lubba Dub Dub!

30 Rock: Black Tie

Join Lily and Scott as they review "Black Tie", a hilarious episode from the Emmy winning first season of one of television's greatest comedies: 30 Rock! Listen as they chart the origins of the series, from Saturday Night Live head writer Tina Fey's proposed sitcom about a cable news network to almost getting shelved by a pair of NBC executives. They'll also discuss the uproarious yet tragic character of Prince Gerhard, a sickly European noble (played by Paul Rubens) who falls in love with his birthday party crasher Jenna, the volatile ex-wife of Jack (played by Isabella Rossallini), and how Kenneth and Tracy play the metaphorical angel and devil on Pete Hornberger's tired shoulders. From the star-studded cast of Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, and Jack McBrayer, to the great tone set by great music and the bustling New York City setting, it's no wonder why it's considered one of the all-time greats. So celebrate your body and your mind, have a glass of champagne (if you can safely metabolize grapes) and enjoy the show!
