Tysto and the Dr. fire up the spinner, practice their origami and take on a bunch of skin jobs as they discuss Blade Runner.  Possibly one of the best films ever made despite on-set production problems and the title being stolen from a book about smuggling medical instruments we take a peek into what Los Angeles will look like in 2019!

The old gang gets back together and hopefully they won't discover that they're digging in the wrong place!  We take on Raiders of the Lost Ark.  It may be one of the best movies ever made but that doesn't mean that DR and Lynch can't point out the fact that Indy only ever makes matters worse in the movie, that Salah has a callous disregard for his children and that ancient weights and measures maybe aren't quite as ancient as we think.  So get a beer, sit back, put Raiders on because for the next two hours we're your god-damn partner!

The doc is joined by Tysto as part of their continuing voyage to boldy go where no podcast has gone before and put the needs of the two above the needs of the many.  Last time we left the crew limping away from the Genesis planet where they left Spock's body and the movie picks up pretty much where we left it.  Join us as we discuss topics such as the amazing broadband connection that Spock's fingers give him, Trek's take on the Cantina scene, Kirk's pin-code and many other things.  So fire up the transwarp drive and we'll meet you on the steps at Mount Seleyah!

Tysto and the Doctor show you how they would handle the no-win scenario by taking on, the Wrath of Khan.  Probably the movie that saved the entire Star Trek franchise, it's a great Horatio Hownblower style romp through the galaxy that manages to make surprising little sense.  Join us as we discuss such important topics as,

  • If you're allowed to take the Kobyashi Maru test multiple times what's the point of it?
  • How come Chekov reacts to the idea of Khan so extremely when as far as we know they never met?
  • Did Scotty take his dying nephew to the bridge instead of sickbay because he knows McCoy is only ever rarely at his post?

Enjoy the commentary and remember if we go by the book, like Lieutenant Savvik, then watching Star Trek 2 without this commentary could make hours seem like days!

The Doctor and Tysto beam-up once more to enjoy a much maligned classic, this time with Robert Wise and Alan Dean Foster’s tribute to 2001: A Space Odyssey and slow-motion model work. We both love the film and William Shatner and Persis Khambatta and the idea that Decker might just be responsible for creating the Borg  We’re watching the director’s cut, with the silver “Paramount Pictures Presents” lettering at the beginning and not the theatrical cut with the gold lettering. The differences are not enormous.

The Internets are kind to us this time (the Doctor has “moved house” as they say in the UK) but his new microphone goes wonky a couple of times, making him a little hard to hear thru the noise. We’re very sorry and promise to have it sorted out in the future.

Start the commentary with the Paramount logo faded out and the Paramount title card (just the words) about to fade in, on the countdown.

It's Ladies Night at the Speakeasy and to celebrate valentines day we're discussing the classic romcom (that doesn't seem to be especially romantic...or funny) Pretty Woman.  To help us tackle a new genre we're joined by Dr. Rogue the first lady to join the Speakeasy crew.  To enjoy this podcast to the fullest be sure to watch it over a candlelit dinner.
