Some of our listeners would suspect the Regular Joe's exclusively watch movies and TV shows with spaceships and aliens etc. but occasionally, we do take time out to enjoy something more cerebral, like a documentary about, spaceships and aliens etc. This week Dave (reputed to be the biggest Star Wars fan in the group) suggested Elstree 1976 (2015), by director Jon Spira, about extras and bit players in the early Star Wars films. Tod (in contention with Dave as the biggest Star Trek fan) suggested, For the love of Spock (2016) by Adam Nimoy, which addresses both the cultural significance of the character made famous by his father, actor Leonard Nimoy, and an intimate look at the life of the man himself. In an increasingly rare case of trilateral agreement, all three had similar takes on the two productions. One very good, one not so much. One certainly worth watching, the other . . . well you get the idea. If it's possible to spoil a documentary, then there are SPOILERS. This episode also contains a protracted discussion on what constitutes a "Jedi" and a round of Star Trek/Star Wars themed Random Topics interrupted only by Barry's desire to talk about another film that won't be made anyway. Thanks for Listening!

Using Carrie Fisher's recent memoir, The Princess Diarist, to provide perspective from the other side of the table The Regular Joe's discuss the phenomenon and culture of celebrity autograph shows. A few weeks back Tod warned Barry and Dave they probably wouldn't like Netflix The OA. He was about half right. WARNING it is nearly impossible to talk about The OA without some degree of spoiling, we do however keep it to a minimum. All this plus Random Topics and a round of What's in the Box.  Thanks for listening!

Ready or not it's 2017. The Regular Joes get together to peruse and debate IMDB's geek genre heavy list of most anticipated movies and TV shows of next…I mean, this year. Which of the upcoming offerings are most interesting, less so, or, paradoxically missing all together? All this, plus a decidedly Star Wars centric Random Topics, Barry and Tod fail at Star Trek trivia, and a what's in the box installment where Dave introduces his new brother. Thanks for listening!!!
