In a week where (Imagine the voice of voiceover legend Don LaFontaine) the most over produced and expensive award show crashed and burned, Dave, Barry and Tod deliver the Joe-Academy awards on time, and under budget. Find out who won, and unlike those other winner-take-all shows, who came close. 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!

In a show about nothing in particular the Regular Joes get caught up on a back log of Random Topics, resurrect the Shirt Up segment, and deal a Wild Card round of What's in the Box, RJ Picks, and Show and Tell offerings. Learn what Barry's favorite song is, find out what the three of them would rather be doing, and hear Tod's counter theory on the much pondered parentage of a certain Star War character. Remember, voting for the Joe-cademy Awards ends this week. 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. This week Barry Dave and Tod dive deep into their extensive watch lists to talk about their perennial favorites, recent additions, shows that no longer make the cut, as well as which new mid season offerings will likely get added to the mix. 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

This is it. All those hours you spent in 2016 watching Superhero, Sci-fi and Fantasy films is about to pay off. Yes, it's time for the third annual Joe-cademy Awards! While in most awards shows the suspense is about who gets nominations, and who takes home the statues, ours hangs on whether on not three guys can make it through reading a list. But first the Regular Joes catch up on recent news about the future of the D.C. film franchise and the first promising update from the set of Star Trek Discovery. All this plus a round of Wildcard picks and some last thoughts about Disney's position on our Princess and digital resurrection. Thanks for listening . . . and remember to cast your vote at regularJoes.com

Some of our listeners would suspect the Regular Joe's exclusively watch movies and TV shows with spaceships and aliens etc. but occasionally, we do take time out to enjoy something more cerebral, like a documentary about, spaceships and aliens etc. This week Dave (reputed to be the biggest Star Wars fan in the group) suggested Elstree 1976 (2015), by director Jon Spira, about extras and bit players in the early Star Wars films. Tod (in contention with Dave as the biggest Star Trek fan) suggested, For the love of Spock (2016) by Adam Nimoy, which addresses both the cultural significance of the character made famous by his father, actor Leonard Nimoy, and an intimate look at the life of the man himself. In an increasingly rare case of trilateral agreement, all three had similar takes on the two productions. One very good, one not so much. One certainly worth watching, the other . . . well you get the idea. If it's possible to spoil a documentary, then there are SPOILERS. This episode also contains a protracted discussion on what constitutes a "Jedi" and a round of Star Trek/Star Wars themed Random Topics interrupted only by Barry's desire to talk about another film that won't be made anyway. Thanks for Listening!

Using Carrie Fisher's recent memoir, The Princess Diarist, to provide perspective from the other side of the table The Regular Joe's discuss the phenomenon and culture of celebrity autograph shows. A few weeks back Tod warned Barry and Dave they probably wouldn't like Netflix The OA. He was about half right. WARNING it is nearly impossible to talk about The OA without some degree of spoiling, we do however keep it to a minimum. All this plus Random Topics and a round of What's in the Box.  Thanks for listening!

Ready or not it's 2017. The Regular Joes get together to peruse and debate IMDB's geek genre heavy list of most anticipated movies and TV shows of next…I mean, this year. Which of the upcoming offerings are most interesting, less so, or, paradoxically missing all together? All this, plus a decidedly Star Wars centric Random Topics, Barry and Tod fail at Star Trek trivia, and a what's in the box installment where Dave introduces his new brother. Thanks for listening!!!
