Still groggy from their Thanksgiving induced food comas, the Regular Joes awoke on Black Friday to the YouTube release of the most anticipated movie teaser of all time, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Having collectively viewed it a few hundred times, Dave, Barry and Tod do a scene-by-scene breakdown of all 88 seconds worth of awesome. Also, some random topics, including a round of “Which Harrison Ford movie sequel comes next” and a Star Wars edition of Show and Tell.

There's no denying the late Glen A. Larson, producer of Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider and, yes . . . Manimal, was one of the most prolific creators in the history of television. The Regular Joe's pay tribute to his legacy by reviewing his prodigious body of work and ponder the question, was he a visionary, or, as so many have claimed, a shameless copycat? SPOILER, the answer lies somewhere in between. Ride along with Dave, Barry and Tod as they revisit Larson's 70's - 90's TV series, both good and bad. Also, Show and Tell and a lengthy discussion about the most eagerly anticipated 88 seconds in fandom history.

This week Disney told the story of a nimble young street thief who stumbles upon a powerful artifact which forever changes his destiny. No, it was not a rerun of Aladdin. It's Star Wars: Rebels, Disney's first foray into a Galaxy far far away.  How does Rebels stand up against the late, lamented, Clone Wars series? With many familiar elements (possibly too many) will this be the gateway drug for a new generation of Star Wars addicts?  Also, a random look at fall shows to date, What's In The Box and The 1977 edition of Desert Island DVDs.  It’s more fun than bullseying wamp rats with your T-16 in beggars canyon!

It's time to shave your sideburns to a point and pour your self a square glass of Romulan ale as the Regular Joe's pit 1979's Star Trek the Motion Picture against its 1982 sequel Star Trek II the Wrath of Khan In a head-to-head matchup. Why does one hit where the other so obviously misses? Tod explains, yet again why "The Motionless Picture" persists as his example of cinematic disappointment, while Barry makes the case for the director's cut.  All this plus more Trekkie goodness.
