We have been hitting TV and movies pretty hard of late so for a change of pace this week is the semi-annual episode where three dudes who buy way too much stuff recommend even more stuff you could buy for yourself, or. . . potentially, others. With suggestions ranging from to one dollar to just under a grand, there’s something for everyone on your list, and at least a few things you will want yourself. Thanks for listening!

Now that everyone has had time to catch up on Netflix’s Stranger Things and the CBS All Access original Star Trek Discovery the Regular Joes compare notes on the Sophomore and Freshman seasons of these two shows. One started with a very high bar, and the other had a half-century of hopes, dreams and expectations riding on it. No pressure really. So how did they do?  Also, the Joes react to the freshly dropped trailer for Avengers: Infinity War...Wow! Barry and Tod answer a listener question, and, of course, the usual sampling of Random Topics. Thanks for Listening!

After a troubled history of changes in direction, directors, and significant reshoots, Justice League opened last week to an underwhelming critical and audience reception. After a series of misses DC needed to prove the success of Wonder Woman was not a fluke. Did that happen? The Regular Joe’s put Justice League under the microscope examining the good, more than you might think, the bad, there’s a lot of that too, and where does this trouble franchise go from here? Also, Barry and Dave get intimate with Robbie the Robot. Henceforth, known as “the most expensive film prop ever sold at auction.” They see other stuff too. Check out the companion gallery at RegularJoes.com.  All this plus What’s in the box in our Thanksgiving eve edition of The Regular Joes Podcast. Thanks for listening!

None of us have finished Stranger Things, and Thor: Ragnorok is not out yet, but we still found plenty to talk about on All Hallows’ Eve. First up, a triple helping of Random Topics, then, a Hot Toys Minute (seriously, has it ever been a minute) covering the long awaited Aliens: Ripley figure, and Star Wars Rogue One’s Jyn Urso. There’s a fledgling attempt to resurrect, our old, Who Would Win in Fight segment. Then it’s time for What’s in the Box, where Tod has Gwyneth Paltrow’s head, and body, in a carton. Lastly, we find time to catch up on week 7 of Star Trek: Discovery. Thanks for listening!

Tod was sick, Barry was grumpy, but nevertheless our stalwart ensemble pressed onward to give you another episode of the Regular Joe’s Podcast. This week we tackle Fall TV. What returning shows are we interested in? What new shows seem promising? And what summer shows caught our interest? In addition to what we watch we delve into how we watch. The TV landscape is undergoing radical changes, as numerous streaming options arise, and Amazon and Netflix break the weekly “must see TV” model, how has how we consume shows changed? But, before we get started with all that, we talk about The Walking Dead’s landmark 100th episode. And why at least one of us will be in no rush to watch the 101st episode. All this plus the usual Random Topics and What’s in the Box. Thanks for Listening!

Blade Runner 2049 has been met with generally good reviews and smaller than anticipated audiences. Find out why two of the Regular Joes are among those enthusiastic about this long awaited follow up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic, and the third…not so much. Does the film stand on its own, or is it a sequel in the truest sense? Can you recreate a world crafted with old school practical effects in the age of CGI? And, how does 2049’s attempt at digital actor replication compare to other recent examples? While this show, shockingly, contains no discussion of Star Trek Discovery, a commensurate amount of time is given to the most recently announced Star Wars film title. WARNING this episode does contain SPOILERS, particularly if you haven’t heard the next “A Star Wars Story” film is named after a plastic beer cup. All this plus What’s in the Box/Show and Tell. Thanks for listening!
