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!

After a few very narrowly focused shows this week we take some time to get caught up on all the other stuff, including some What’s in the Box and Show and Tell. From the two extremes of creative endeavors, Dave recommends a $3000 tool for hardcore makers and Tod offers a tip that costs virtually nothing to implement. Barry tells how his observed Force Friday, which along with May the fourth, and any Star Wars movie premiere date, are the most revered holy days in his religion. There is the inevitable ongoing follow up discussion on Star Trek Discovery. And lastly, a discussion of two new figures which demonstrate that Hot Toys is as committed to detail as they are to getting all of our money. Thanks for Listening!

After an excruciating series of setbacks and delays CBS has finally launched Star Trek Discovery, the latest, and most controversial, TV installment in the 51 year old sci-fi Franchise. While there’s no disputing this is very different show than those which proceeded it, is it too much a departure from the Trek we know and love? Longtime fans and reviewers are taking sides, and now the Regular Joes weigh in. How much Klingon is too much Klingon? Does this future version of history look too futuristic? Will CBS find success holding this beloved franchise hostage behind a paywall? And, was it worth the wait? All this plus the usual round of ransom topics. Thanks for Listening!

We have been threatening to do this for a while, and now it’s finally happened. In this episode we offer up live commentary on what is generally considered to be the worst Trek film in the universe, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Did it improve over time? Could it really be as bad as we remember? Why isn’t Director William Shatner ever actually referred to as “Director William Shatner”? And, of course, why does God need a starship? We answer all these questions, and more. As with our previous live commentary shows there is fair amount of drinking involved. If you plan on rewatching this particular film we strongly suggest doing likewise. Watch responsibly. Thanks for listening!

The past weekend Fox debuted Seth MacFarland’s The Orville, a show that seems custom tailored for the Regular Joes unique demographic. Or not. The Joes offer their thoughts on the pilot, and hopes for what the show could be.  Next up, Barry, Dave and Tod continue the countdown to Star Trek Discovery by rating the best and worst of the Trek big screen offerings. SPOILER Khan still reigns supreme. The TOS Khan that is. Lastly, we take quick look at some of the offerings in the PropStore Treasures from Film and Television Live Auction on Sept. 26th. With props ranging from the extremely desirable to the esoteric. Also included at no extra cost, the last round of anxious speculation prior to the announcement that JJ ABRAMS will write and direct Episode 9. Thanks for listening!

Once a week the Regular Joes get together to talk about stuff. This week this statement is even more accurate. In an episode with no clearly apparent theme or direction Barry, Dave and Tod discuss recent announcements regarding the future of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises, and in particular, who is in and who is out at the moment. As the Countdown to Star Trek Discovery continues the Joes note their favorite Next Generation Episodes. Also included, at no additional cost, an introspective exploration, and occasionally justification, of “the collector’s dilemma,” just when do you have enough stuff, is there such a thing as enough stuff, and are these three even remotely capable of recognizing either case. This is followed, appropriately, by What’s in the Box, where the guys talk about ... wait for it, more stuff they have recently acquired.  Thanks for listening!

In this episode we revisit three films that should have excited us, but barely registered a blip on our collective radar. With Alien: Covenant, Kong Skull Island, and Ghost in the Shell available on disc and to stream the Regular Joes take a second look. How do the franchise films measure up to their predecessors? How does the live action adaptation stack up to the anime that spawned it? Which of these films finds Barry and Tod on polar opposite ends of the like/dislike spectrum? Also, French Director Luc Besson is having a tough summer. First Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets was a critical and commercial failure, and this week he secured a position on Dave's "list." Find out why. All this plus Random Topics and a brand new segment called “If You Could.” Thanks for listening!
