Dorking Out Episode 66: The Kingsman & Ken Burn’s Star Trek Edition

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we review KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE, which topped the weekend box office with $39 million. We also talk about ATOMIC BLONDE and wonder if the spy genre is at a crossroads. Are either of these movies any good, and are they the next James Bond? Chris and Sonia do not agree on the answers to those questions.

In our second segment, friend of the show Mike Richman, our favorite hobbyist historian and host of NOR CAL NEWS NOW, joins us to talk about the new Ken Burns documentary series THE VIETNAM WAR.

And in our final segment, we kick off our weekly recaps and roundtable discussion with Jeff Bond and Alexandra August about STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, which premieres Sunday night. We’ve been talking about this show for more than year. What did we think? Listen and find out!

The Bridget Jones’ Emmy and How to Win Your Own Edition

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode we wade through the Emmys aftermath. In the era of Peak TV, how do you honor all the great shows that deserved to be honored? We talk about the winners, losers and more. Plus, Chris gets to brag about his Emmy wins. He talks about what it is like to be nominated and win an Emmy, as well as what it is like to attend the award show.

We also review the final installment one of the most important trilogies of the 2000. No, not that one. No, not that one, either. We review “Bridget Jones’s Baby.” The original 2001 film is one of Sonia’s favorite romantic comedies of all time. Does the new one deliver? Deliver … get it?

In our final segment, we review the documentary “The Prequels Strikes Back,” which is currently available on Amazon and iTunes. We interviewed the director Bradley Weatherholt, producer Kyle Brodeur and executive producer Alex Kane in last week’s episode of Dorking Out, and we had a really interesting discussion about “Star Wars” fandom. What did we think of the documentary? You have to listen to find out.

All of that, plus our favorite (and least favorite) headlines of the week.
