This week, while the kids were away, Jeff and Jennifer watched all three of the newest Star Trek movies in less than 24 hours!  They agree that Star Trek was a very fun reboot, they give split reviews about Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond was a lot of fun, even with the excessive death toll and oddly-familiar plot.

Familiar plot?  What movie did Star Trek Beyond seem to lift its villain and climactic ending from?  Listen to find out what movie and why!

Shout out to for the audio samples.  Live long and prosper, everyone!

WE'RE BACK! Jennifer is now recovering from some super-fun spine surgery, and she wanted to try out going to the movies in her super-comfy neck brace.  After a discussion about chiropracty and Jeff's very sad childhood experiences with "pets," they dive into a deep, spoiler-laden review of the new Ghostbusters reboot.  Was it entertaining?  Absolutely!  Did it make sense to include the original 80s cast while not acknowledging the 80s movie in the slightest?  Not at all!  Anything else?  Plenty, so be sure and listen in to our big Ghostbusters 2016 review!

In their 3rd movie exchange, Jeff & Jennifer pay tribute to Prince by watching 80s epic musical drama Purple Rain, which Jeff had never seen before. Then, Jeff again digs into the world of 80s martial arts movies and has Jennifer watch Police Story 2, a wacky tale of ... well, it's hard to say for sure.

This week we celebrate all things Star Wars! Or, at least, all the things we could fit into an already-super-sized episode. Not one, but TWO guests join in this week: Lifelong Star Wars fan Karalee, and lifelong Star Wars fanatic Drew. We all share memories and favorites, and Drew teaches us quite a few things about the deeper Star Wars universe that we never knew before. May the Fourth be with YOU!

This week, Jeff and Jennifer ponder the newfangled idea of the binge - watching whole seasons or even series in a very short span of time. Is it amazing? Is it terrible for us? Is it, perhaps, the downfall of humanity? Darn those kids today and their dangnabbit YouTubes! Get off my lawn!! Also, Yogurtland is awesome.

We took a week off (for Pod of Thrones marathon recording sessions), but we're back, and just in time to eulogize a musical genius. We loved this crazy, purple man, and we mourn his tragic, early passing. Sadly, Prince wasn't the only celebrity death this week - we also pay homage to Chyna as well as two non-wrestling-watchers can. RIP, you two!

Jennifer & Jeff dive DEEP into Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Along with enough spoilers to choke Jor-El's Kryptonian DragonHorse, they dissect the many sources that this movie drew from, including The Dark Knight Returns, Rocky 4, a thing that happened to Superman in 1992, and Injustice: Gods Among Us. Kevin Smith, Get Outta My Head!

A peek at a new podcast from Jeff & Jennifer that's about one of their all-time favorite TV shows. The Game of Thrones full-series recaps start with a trip to Winterfell, where we meet the main players of this most-deadly game: The Starks, the Baratheons, and the Lannisters get the complex intrigue going right away. Also, there's a guy named after the local weather, a human-shaped hound, and a whole bunch of adorable killer wolves... and all that is still just the tiny tip of the Winter-is-Coming iceberg! Want more? Look up "Pod of Thrones" on your favorite podcasting platform!

Jeff and Jennifer talk about beloved video games of past and present and how easy it is to get sucked in, but they ain't got time for that right now because of their upcoming Game of Thrones podcast project! Then it's over to this week's release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with a discussion of the best Batmen ever, murdering villains, DC's joyless universe, and whether or not the new movie is kid-friendly.

David Lizerbram, host of Products of the Mind, joins minds with our podcast to teach us how the world of intellectual property law keeps us from seeing Wolverine and Captain America in the same movie, prevents Etsy crafters from going completely unchecked, and allows YouTube to be an eternal sea of homemade cover songs.
