212 - Once Upon a Time There was a Dal'Rok
Is it REALLY That Bad - "The Storyteller" Edition There are Star Trek episodes that have bad reputations, but do they always deserve them? The stories that are usually the target of audience "hate" occur during the first season. In that spirit, the trio tackles the first season "Deep Space Nine" episode "The Storyteller." Does the story of O'Brien and Bashir helping a Bajoran village against their boogie monster stand up? And what about the forgotten-about B-story about a young Bajoran leader entering into negotiations while befriending Nog and Jake? We put on the coat of many colors, dangle our legs from the Promenade's second story, and ask if "The Storyteller" is really that bad.

Between Takes 0.45 - Zack Snyder's Justice League
Shawn and his good friend Matthew Schott of The Adaptation Game podcast watched Zack Snyder's Justice League and have many, many thoughts to unravel. There are improvements to be sure, and the fact that Snyder got a chance to rework the film into his originally intended vision is undoubtedly an artistic triumph. That said, this is still pretty much the same movie, only with a lot more slow motion and a lot less color. Shawn and Matt discuss the film's gargantuan length, Snyder's self-serious style, the heroes' characterizations (or lack thereof) and that baffling extended epilogue. Heads up, Snyder fans: this episode is not for you. Don't say we didn't warn you. HOSTS Shawn Eastridge Matthew Schott

211 - Major Ro
Ro on DS9. Many Star Trek fans have heard the story that Michelle Forbes was originally approached to star in "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,' reprising her character of Ro Laren. Whether it's true, we are glad that Nana Visitor/Kira Nerys got to play the station's first officer for seven seasons. But what would that alternative show look like, with Ro as a main character from the very first episode? What role would she have with Sisko, Starfleet, and her fellow Bajorans? And what would Kira's role be, if Ro is already there? Would they get along? What romance (if any) would Ro have during the seven seasons of DS9? The trio dreams up this alternative version of "Deep Space Nine," with a dynamic Ro character. Are you glad she didn't show up? Or would she have made the show even better? Let us know!

210 - Smoke Break Conference
Is It Really THAT Bad? - "The Last Outpost" Edition It was the first season of The Next Generation, and it was time to introduce the newest alien in the franchise. They would be equal to the Enterprise in power and technology, would be feared by our enterprising crew, and ... it was the Ferengi. With laser whips. Wearing furs. And not knowing when to STAND STILL ALREADY! The trio look at this TNG episode that introduced the profit-loving "Yankee traders" that would make their mark, especially in "Deep Space Nine." Is their introduction as bad as we think it is? What stayed the same and what changed? And how long should it take to beam down to a planet in one episode?!?!
