Last week Tod expressed doubt about the existence of Solo: A Star Wars Story. In response Disney stepped up, releasing first a teaser, then a trailer proving conclusively that they really do have just under 2 minutes of usable film in the can. Find out what the Regular Joes think about Solo (both the trailer and the casting) as well as the prospect of yet another slate of Star Wars films, and updated teasing about a live action SW TV series. Also included, a round of Show And Tell where Barry and Tod share a few treasured items from their childhoods, and Dave Demonstrates that he, in fact, still possesses everything from his childhood. Oddly, at no time did anyone mention Star Trek Discovery during this episode . . . that’s coming next week, along with a first look at Nextflix’s Altered Carbon. Remember to vote for the 4th annual JoeCademy Awards at Regularjoes.com. Thanks for listening!

First up we talk about the newly released trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp, next we cover the, as of yet MIA, trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Then on to a Discovery recap as the newest Star Trek iteration continues to go where no one has gone before. And, somewhere along the line, we work in a round of What’s in the Box. Finally, in our annual effort to recognize those films we love (or dislike) which get little or no recognition from the so-called Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, we present the 2018 nominations for the Joe-Cademy awards. As you might guess if you have listened to our shows since late December this year’s selections are not without controversy. And, because we are not like those other stodgy award shows without actual rules and guidelines, we even work in a few categories beyond the realm of film. Now it’s your turn to weigh in and cast your ballot. Vote at Regularjoes.com. Thanks for listening!

In the words of the late, great Tom Petty, “the waaaaaaaiting is the hardest part.” This week the Regular Joes add three long awaited 1/6 scale items to their collections and take time out to tell you about them. First up, from 2016’s Avengers: Age of Ultron it’s Iron Man’s HulkBuster Armor. More than two years in development the “figure” is biggest, heaviest and most ambitious Hot Toys has produced to date. Next, the QMx Star Trek figures have been a hit with The Regular Joes, this week they each add the iconic Captain’s chair from the bridge of the NCC-1701 to their respective shelves. And lastly, from 1989, and the far flung future of 2015, it’s Marty McFly from Back to the Future 2 Hover-board and all. Find out what is noticeably missing from this figure and what Barry does about it. All this, plus the usual regular Random Topics and weekly recap of Star Trek Discovery. Thanks for listening!

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!

We have been hitting TV and movies pretty hard of late so for a change of pace this week is the semi-annual episode where three dudes who buy way too much stuff recommend even more stuff you could buy for yourself, or. . . potentially, others. With suggestions ranging from to one dollar to just under a grand, there’s something for everyone on your list, and at least a few things you will want yourself. Thanks for listening!

Last week the Regular Joe’s traveled to WinterCon in Jamaica NY to see everyone from Blade Runner who is not Harrison Ford, and…well, that was pretty much it. Now that Barry is sort of caught up they share their thoughts on last week’s four way Arrow, Flash, Legends and Supergirl Earth X crossover event. SPOILER it was awesome! This week’s Random Topics include, Tarantino does Trek and Warner/DC wants to stream. Also: What’s in the Box and the obligatory observation that The Last Jedi is just ONE WEEK AWAY! 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!
