Star Trek Discovery is Back, a new batch of Black Mirror has dropped, and the first season of Seth McFarlane’s The Orville has wrapped. Simply put, there’s a whole lot of Trekin goin on. Black Mirror’s U.S.S. Callister episode infuses social commentary into a familiar sixties sci-fi setting, The Orville (in a full reverse from our first impression) has boldly gone where no series has gone before, and Discovery goes deep on Star Trek canon. Find out where the Regular Joes come down on all this, plus a handful of Random Topics, and a round of What’s in the Box. Warning: this episode contains hypothetical postulations on spacial and temporal phenomena as applied to totally make-believe astrophysics. Thanks for Listening!

After a holiday week hiatus the Regular Joe’s are back to take one last look at 2017 in the rearview mirror. With the caveat, more or less, that each can only pick three, Barry, Dave and Tod offer up their favorite films, TV shows, collectibles, projects, and a few other fairly random things from the year that was. Also, although we did not actually produce a show last week we did record our live, in person, gift exchange at the Annual Regular Joes Podcast Holiday party, which we have included at no extra charge. Note: this podcast contains continued abuse of one host over his take on The Last Jedi and may be disturbing to persons clinging to similar perspectives. Happy New Year and Thanks for Listening!

The wait is over. The last Jedi is here and with it comes no small amount of controversy. Who could have imagined a Star Wars film that cleaned up at the box office, drew unprecedented critical praise, but still seemed to alienate a large share of the hardcore faithful, earning a current 54% score on Rotten Tomatoes? The Regular Joes get together and debrief, breaking down what went right, what went wrong, and where to go from here. Note this episode contains SPOILERS also, rationalizing, some slavish devotion, possibly some Crystal Skulling and at least one harsh comparison between Rian Johnson and Tim Burton. 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!

Thor Ragnarok is in theaters shattering box office expectations and hammers. It’s the Thunder God‘s third big screen outing, and Marvel Studios 17th film overall, however this time around it’s a very different kind of superhero film. While Ragnarok is mostly pleasing audiences, and even garnering some critical praise, many hard-core Thor fans are not happy with this version of their hero. Find out what the Regular Joe’s think, where they come down on this new direction, and how they they rank this film against the Son of Odin’s prior outings. WARNING this episode contains SPOILERS All this plus the usual Random Topics and What’s in the Box. 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!
