Star Wars has officially turned 40 years old, and we mark that with a variety of Star Wars topics, including never released toys, a movie called 5-27-77, an interview with the clumsy Stormtrooper, a 40-year-old Wookiee apology, and the Lucasfilm proclamation about Rey's lightsaber.
Andy fromHoly Batcast stops by to share his reaction to the Wonder Woman movie. Also, Jeff and Regina share their thoughts on the horror-themed X-Men spin-off movie. All this, and we apologize in advance for the amount of juvenile humor heard in this episode.
This week is all about reviews, previews and reactions. First we'll talk about the television previews and announcements that came out, including, Young Sheldon, The Dark Crystal Prequel Series, Star Trek Discovery, The Orville and The Gifted. We'll also share our reviews for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Regina talks about an experience that still has her geeking out. GANNIN shows his love for pop quizes. Scott tells us about a connection between Attack of the Clones and Into the Badlands.
This week, Andy DiGenova of Holy Batcast joins us to discuss the newly released documentary Batman and Bill. We all had a general knowledge of the Bill Finger/Bob Kane controversy, but we share what new things we learned in the film.
Also this week, we discuss Star Wars Day (including an school evacuation), Adam Scott's Mark Hamill surprise on Jimmy Kimmel, and the selection of Dr. Aphra as the newest Star Wars action figure. We'll react to the costume controversy surrounding the upcoming Inhumans show. We'll also share thoughts on J.K. Rowling's apology for killing Professor Snape.
This week Darth Taxus (Starships, Sabers and Scoundrels) guests hosts as we attempt to predict how some of the summer movies will fare on Rotten Tomatoes. Will Wonder Woman break the DC losing streak? Will Transformers: The Last Knight do worse? How do you make a prediction for The Emoji Movie? We try to figure it all out.
Also, GANNIN asks us to decide where our dogs would be sorted in Hogwarts. We'll also try to gauge the level of interest in the new Disney Pandora Park and come up with our own fandom-themed park.
We'll discuss a new female Overwatch team and the interest in E-Sports. And what did Harrison Ford mean when he said Han Solo is "resting"? All this, and John Phelan is back with another moment in geek history!
Virtual host GANNIN tasks human hosts Scott, Jeff & Regina to discuss geek fandoms via discussions, debates & challenges.
