#335 – Spotlight On: Star Trek – The Motion Picture
< 1 day ago
Finally, after long last, Empire or Jedi has returned to where it started…The Final Frontier. Yes, that’s right; a show that takes its name from a reference to Star Wars is finally getting around to doing something logical: discussing Star Trek. I am your host and recently promoted officer, Admiral David Snider, and joining me on the first of our ten movie mission is Lt. Commander Chad Griner and Ensign Nick Goathoof. Much like the Bond-Cast series, Ensign Goathoof is a newbie to the world of Star Trek, and as such, will go into these films completely clean and without any sort of bias whatsoever. What will Nick learn from the Trek-verse? Will he embrace the life of a Trekkie? Or will he give up all emotion like Chad and undergo Kolinahr training?
Topics of discussion in this episode include gratuitous spaceship porn; Nick takes issue with Spock’s poor grammar; and finally, we deem Chekov unfit for duty for reasons of wimpiness.

My #1 weekly staple
These guys keep me company at work. I've been listening for 3 years and we live a state apart but they would no doubt have refrigerator privileges at my house. David, Cody, Chad, and Ryan I don't always agree but I always love to hear your opinions on movies. My husband is a movie buff and this gives us some common ground. 10 years of marriage leaves you sparse on discussion topics. Thanks for the entertainment and interaction. I've enjoyed it so much I thought I'd take a moment to let everyone know. :-)

Clerks - Verified
These guys are certainly clerks with a capital "C" and they're just polished enough to let you enjoy that fact, without being annoyed by it. Great geek-out fan show for all things movies, TV and the kinds of interests we had because we weren't dating... And I mean that as a compliment.
