One of the traditional early signs of spring is the blooming of the summer blockbuster season movie trailers. With new previews for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, Justice League, Spider-Man Homecoming, Wonder Woman, ambitious contender DC and reigning champion Marvel Studios get ready to slug it out for the big screen payday. Other Franchise offerings include War for the Planet of the Apes, Alien: Covenant and the Mummy. Also of interest is the Charlize Theron film Atomic Blonde . . . which you really, really need to see. Find out which films the Regular Joes are most looking forward to, how the concept of trailers has changed in the age of viral marketing, and lastly, we ask, can a trailer reveal to much? Also, on the film theme, last week Dave and Tod give a quick recap of a recent Tribeca Film Festival Director's Series Talk where they spent an hour and a half up close and personal Scarlett Johansson. . . oh, Iron Man director Jon Favreau was there too. All this plus Random Topics. Thanks for listening!

And, once again we ask, is there any reason to watch Fear the Walking Dead? All this plus Show and tell, and the usual side order of Random Topics. Thanks for listening!

The Doctor is In. QMX has just released their Dr. Leonard McCoy 1/6 scale "Articulated Figure" and, in a rare moment of consumer consensus, Dave, Barry and Tod each bought one. SPOILER they all liked it. Find out why, as well as what other Star Trek figures and accessories they are hoping to see. Logan is the 10th and most recent entry in the long running FOX X-Men film franchise, and, reportedly, Hugh Jackman's last time portraying Wolverine onscreen. Hear what the Team thinks about the film and the franchise as a whole. While Logan slices up the big screen, Legion, a less overtly X-Men linked series runs on FX. Where do the Regular Joes sit with the show and how does the first X-Men (sort of) related live action TV series compares to some of the other comic based offerings? Listen in to find out.  All this plus the Regular side order of Random Topics. Thanks for listening!

In the the last few weeks Taken and Time after Time and Training Day were added to a 2016/2017 TV schedule that already included, The Exorcist, Frequency, Lethal Weapon and Westworld. While the practice of adapting films into TV series has been common since the earliest days of the medium the last few years have seen an huge escalation of such projects. Is the TV industry running out of new concepts, or is it simply the ease of selling a known property? The Regular Joes weigh in on this phenomenon, assess what works and what doesn't, preview a staggeringly long list of film to TV projects reportedly in development, and offer their own suggestions for Movies to migrate to the living room. All this plus Random Topics and What's In The Box. Thanks for Listening!

But first the Regular Joes salute the late, great Bill Paxton, discussing some of their favorite roles among his wide ranging career. Also, a brief discussion of some of the cool things our remote correspondent Jorge spotted at Toy Fair, or as we think of it…a heads up on where our money will go next year. All this plus Random Topics, and the winner of our Joe-Academy voter give away. Thanks for listening!

Dave says we're talking too much about TV shows. He's probably right. This week the Regular Joe's discuss another favorite topic, Prop Replicas. Find out which items are their favorites, what would they most like to see from manufacturers such as QMX, The Wand Company, Anovos and . . . Yes, Hasbro. Learn which home built projects they (meaning Dave) are contemplating, what would Tod grab in event of a fire, and what does Barry own too many of to carry. All this plus Random Topics and a round of What's in the Box. Thanks for listening . . . And, hey, don't touch that. It's expensive.

The Regular Joe's have a TV problem. There are simply too many shows and too little time.

SPOILER they watch a $&@#% load of TV.  Plus: Random topics, including a real time donation to Felicity Jones' retirement fund, and What's in the Box/Show and Tell. Thanks for listening . . . and remember to vote in the annual Joe-cademy Awards Poll @ RegularJoes.com
