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!

This is it! More than four years in the making, the stupendous, the amazing, the mind-blowingly awesome 200th (or there abouts) episode of the Regular Joe’s Podcast! OK. To be honest, what you’re really getting is a whole lot like the last 199 episodes. Good friends getting together to talk about and share the stuff they enjoy with each other and you. For this bicentennial episode Barry Dave and Tod are joined by their good friend Derryl DePriest. The four cover a wide range of topics, most of which came from you, our listeners. Well many of these questions and topics may sound familiar some of the answers will surprise you, as they did each of us. Thanks for listening!

Continuing the Regular Joe's quest to record despite geographical obstacles, this week Tod remotes in from an undisclosed location on the northern tip of the Bermuda Triangle. Hint: there is lots of rum there. First up there a healthy shot of Random Topics, encompassing both Barry's fears about Star Wars ep 8 and Tod's unsustainable optimism about Star Trek Discovery, followed by a chaser, in the form of a brief, mostly spoiler free (shhh…Woody Harrelson dies…badly) review of War for the Planet of the Apes. Then another shot of Random, and that's about it. What more can you expect, we're on vacation. Thanks for listening!

The Regular Joes give their thoughts on the third big screen interpretation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's enduring, and endearing, wall crawler. How Does Tom Holland stack up against his predecessors? How does this Spidey, now under the creative wing of Marvel, mesh with his MCU brethren? And, most importantly, why isn't Aunt May Hotter? Lastly, find out where the RJ team rank this film among the three previous 2017 comic book films. And, yes, there will be SPOILERS! Thanks for Listening.
