It was a slow news week! So, instead of making up fake news, we just filled today's episode with games and challenges. Today's show includes geek list challenges, predicting geeky behavior, remembering Star Wars dialogue and roleplay scenarios. If that wasn't enough, today's final score tally presents us with something that has NEVER happened before! Game on!
Next summer, we get to hang out with time travelers Bill & Ted, but not before we go back to 1980s Hawkins for a third time! In his 88 years, William Shatner looks like he's time traveled to a younger age, and we know Captain Kirk has experienced a sling-shot around the sun. So, today we'll react to the Stranger Things Season 3 trailer and the announcement to Bill & Ted 3. Darth Taxus will challenge the geeks with a "strange 80s things" game and a time travel-themed "would you rather" challenge. We'll discuss some of the best Captain Kirk moments as well. Finally, with all of the Batman casting rumors floating around, Taxus asks the geeks to read Batman lines as different celebrities. How good are the impersonations? You be the bat-judge!
It's our most star-studded (or maybe we should say Star Trekked filled) episode to date. We'll discuss the latest Star Trek news, including the official announcement regarding the return of Jean-Luc Picard, the plan for year-round Star Trek TV shows and the break up between Star Trek 4, Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth. With that main course set, we'll give you some side dishes in the way of a high-budget Star Wars TV series, results of the Christopher Robin predictions and engines full of kittens.
We're back from a summer break! Since there were so many topics waiting for us when we came back, Darth Taxus just put a bunch of them on a wheel. The results include discussions on the new DC streaming service, the possible return of Captain Picard, a new Overwatch hero/hamster and news about Indiana Jones 5 (coming much, much later to a theater near you...hopefully). We've missed you, so please join us for today's Geek Supreme match!
People grew up watching Han Solo in the 1980s, and yet somehow we're going to see a younger version of him in 2018. The Solo trailer reactions kick-off our 1980s-themed show. A movie starring Han Solo isn't the only thing attempting a comeback. Kenneth Johnson is working on a movie trilogy based on the classic V series. The podcast is also loaded with flashbacks about Goonies, Bill and Ted, Spaceballs, The A-Team, Predator, Star Trek TNG, The Last Starfighter and more. So, put on your parachute pants and breakdance your way into this week's show!

Salt Lake fought "The Con" and "The Con" won. So, what happens now? If San Diego trademarked "Comic-Con", how should other conventions respond? We'll discuss. We'll also talk about the prospects of a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie and who might star in it. Also, we'll react to Wolverine heading to podcastland and Jessica Jones is back in March. The show starts with Christmas present bribes and ends with The Force Awakens trivia questions. That makes for a happy holiday episode full of toilet motivational, wiener cooking, time-turning fun with a dose of Kanjiklub and beasts.

Last week, Jeff and Regina engaged in a passionate disagreement about Star Trek Discovery. This week we find out how that debate continued past the show and into text messaging. We'll also learn if anything has changed since the second episode of the series was released. In other TV talk, Scott reviews Young Sheldon and Regina shares her thoughts on Inhumans.
So, why is James Cameron making another Terminator? Better yet, why is he continuously DUMPING on Wonder Woman? Is it fair to pit Sarah Connor against Diana Prince? David Bowie could've been the new Blade Runner villain, so Darth Taxus wants to know what other musicians would make great villains (and screamers).
The geeks will also react to Danny Elfman's comments about his approach to the Justice League soundtrack and make Rotten Tomatoes predictions for My Little Pony: The Movie.
