Is It Star Trek? Fandom and Gatekeeping

Is discounting a piece of the Trek franchise for not following in the direct footsteps of TOS tantamount to gatekeeping? That’s a question that immediately popped into my head when I saw a podcast title from Mission Log, “But, Is It Star Trek?”.  I find Mission Log (and similar podcasts) extremely entertaining to listen to, […]

Black Mirror – USS Callister

Black Mirror’s season 4 was recently made available on Netflix. This is a show I’ve been meaning to watch for a long time, but haven’t gotten around to. Peak TV, everyone. Anyway, I heard a bit about the first episode of the season, USS Callister, and decided to at least check out that one episode. […]

Episode 24 – Luck of the Fryrish

Mike and Steve are back with a brand new episode!  Covering a 16 year old episode!  “Luck of the Fryrish” is the focus episode, and Mike & Steve discuss Fry’s birthday, Coney Island Whitefish, and which items you should order from Horse D…

Stranger Things: The Game

Have you tried out Stranger Things: The Game?  I heard about this a few weeks back in passing, and sought it out.  The gameplay is fairly simple – it’s point-and-click, but is more of an action RPG (in the vein of the original Zelda games). I’ve only got as far as Chapter 2, but so […]

Star Trek Discovery Opening Titles

I think this is probably the best opening sequence of any Star Trek show.  It would be cool if they made versions for all of the other shows that look like this.  My current desktop wallpaper is a screenshot of the Discovery from this sequence.  It looks really great.

Star Trek: Discovery Review

I finally finished watching the final bits of “The Battle at the Binary Stars”, the second episode of Star Trek: Discovery.  Here’s my quick review of the show! Overall impressions I thought the premiere episodes were great.  In Canada, Discovery is being released on Space, the Canadian version of the SyFy channel.  I’m incredibly thankful […]

New on Netflix in October (Canada)

I was a holdout of Netflix for a long time, but with the demise of Shomi last November, I finally bit the bullet.  Most months I don’t even pay for it out of pocket money, using cash earned through SwagBucks.  So I’ve been enjoying it a lot. Here’s the full list I’m reading from, courtesy […]

Episode 22: Reincarnation

 Audio hosted on Archive.org We watched a portion of an episode, so you get a portion of a podcast!  We watched the “Future Challenge 3000” part of Season 8’s 13th episode, Reincarnation.  We still managed a half hour discussion, includi…

Other Space – A Review

Other Space is a 2015 sci-fi comedy show produced by Paul Feig, and is available online at http://www.shareotherspace.com.  I first heard about it from Engage, The Official Star Trek Podcast.  It was originally released on Yahoo! Screen, a service I’ve actually never heard of before until today. Other Space stars Karan Soni, Bess Rous, Eugene […]

Episode 21: Meanwhile

Finally, after three years, a new episode!  Thanks for sticking with us during the unplanned hiatus.  During the recording we forgot about our “lost” episode 20 that we totally did record, so that’s where the Episode 20 references are coming …
