  1. I'm really enjoying this guys. The level of detail each of you adds is fascinating. I'm going to have to read along with each episode. One point, and I don't know if the panels contradict this at all, but I always figure that part of Rorsachs plan would be to get the name Edward Blake out there, send terrified lowlifes out with word hes searching for the killer. It's a very Daredevil thing to do. Then again, maybe back when Dan and Rorsach used to investigate Dan suggested that sort of action and it just became habit for Rorsach, he doesn't really remember why they did it it's just an automatic reaction. Find crime = Terrify bar, that kind of thing.
  2. He beat up Gable after though. Might as well have won.
  3. To be honest I wouldn't mind some episodes examining the expanded material, Doomsday Clock might even be done by then. Really get a firsthand insight into whether it was worth doing.
  4. 😁 It's all linked!
  5. I can't call IV a great film just because it's so gentle. I like it's placement in the trilogy and the fact that it's not another war film (albeit it's the second film plotted around a giant mysterious probe). It's never going to have the punch of II or VI. I'm pretty much with Dan on this, it's ok but unless it's personal to you that's all it is. I know you guys said you liked how mysterious the Probe was but there is a novelisation sequel, unsurprisingly called Star Trek: Probe which explores the origins of the probe and it's makers. It's got ok reviews despite a troubled production, I recall finding the audiobook read by James Doohan quite atmospheric with it's used of whale song and music. Most of the book is about the Federation in a race/collaboration with the Romulans to learn the language of the probe and journey to it's origins. For some reason I had that one and the audiobook of Relic, read by Levar Burton rather than Doohan.
  6. I was attempting the justify the unified theory of related characters but then thought, what about actors like Jeffry Combs who play roles across multiple races? Surely they can't be related? But perhaps Combsian DNA isn't random. You see, in TNGs The Chase we see that all humanoid life shares a common ancester, so maybe that DNA reoccurs across the species, in ferengi, andorian and Vorta. We know the founders manipulated the Vorta dna. And of course, we know the common ancestor evolves into the Founders, since they are both played by Salome Jens. I'd like my no-prize please.
  7. Guys, it's not their fault they gained weight, it's all that fattening Vulcan cuisine.
  8. David kinda pays off next film but his death is absolutely integral to 6. If this was all we got I'd resent him more but it's clearly a part of Kirks long term shift from Klingon adversary to Klingon racist. Which is positive because it's resolved properly. To my mind whilst you called this a trilogy 6 is just as much a part of it all, calling back to those moments as well as the Excelsior. I wonder if knowing how the promotions and commands played out later they would have been better off putting Sulu on the Reliant over Chekov. He was definitely there in Space Seed and allows that growth to the point where hes the Captain of Excelsior in 6.
  9. Haven't finished but three thoughts Electric whistles may play at a range of frequencies more inclusive to all federation species. A class m planet is about size, rotation, orbit, distance from the sun etc. Without those things retaining an atmosphere suitable for life is impossible. So they can't just use any old rock in space, it's got to have all these elements but be unpopulated. The code they use is dumb as hell. I figured they should just say "Mr Scott says itll take 12 hours" and Kirk would know that means 6 because of Scottys rule about exaggerating repair times. https://youtu.be/8xRqXYsksFg
  10. Always great fun to record with Ian and delighted to get a chance to chat with Pandy again. Congrats on taking back the list format Ian!
  11. I buy a new game once a year. It's the one thing where I'm not at the razors edge of culture.
  12. Thanks for bring nice about our segment guys. I'm usually so scattered by the end of a recording that I don't have the best handle on how good they were. Gonna start in on some of these soon. It's seriously a huge achievement not only to get to 1000 episodes but to put together a coalition of diverse friends who can come together with 24 hours of content like this. Well done Mike and well done everyone.
  13. Well she's a...she's very busy with... Nah, she's a sponge minor pseudo-celeb. At best she makes money advertising random tat to her pretty decent social media crowd. 800k on instagram.
  14. She came back after a year of neck and back rehab and then reinjured it when Sasha kicked her in the back. Spinal stenosis, she just shouldn't be in there. I mean, it was an off spot but nothing a healthy person wouldnt shake off.
