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!

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we talk about the ultimate piece of WTF pop culture, David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return.” The finale was on Showtime Sunday night, and we have thoughts – many, many thoughts. Joining us for that is our old friend Anthony C. Ferrante, pop culture encyclopedia, but you may know him as the director of all five “Sharknado” movies.

In our second segment, we are joined by a new friend, Alexandra August from the GOT Thrones podcast and Geek Magazine, to answer the question: Now that we’ve digested Season 7 and look forward to the final episodes, is “Game of Thrones” overhyped? Is it one of the greats? We’ll find an answer.

And finally we return for a while to giving our thoughts on pop culture stories of the moment… An all female “Lord of the Flies”? “True Detective” Season 3? Is Marvel’s “Inhumans” a trainwreck?
