Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode we review “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Sonia connects it to the current wave of sexual harassment and abuse allegations, and Chris thinks it’s good Coen Brothers fan fiction.

In our second segment, Peter Brown, associate editor of Assignment X, joins us to talk about the new “Avengers Infinity War” trailer. Someone’s going to die in this one, huh? We make our predictions.

And finally, we end our show with what we’re dorking out about, including Sam Rockwell’s dancing and, well, what the focus of Dorking Out with Chris and Sonia should be in 2018.

Dorking Out Episode 72: The It’s Time To Reboot Hollywood Edition

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we’re returning to Dorking Out Studios to talk about some movie franchises that we’d like to see rebooted. I know it’s uncool to like reboots, revisits and revivals, but we make some pretty good arguments for our picks.

One of the awesome things about Dorking Out Studios the complete lack of sexual abuse and harassment, which brings us to our second segment. Sexual abuse and sexual harassment: Is every man in Hollywood awful? We’re going to talk about it.

And finally, Smith and our Star Trek experts Jeff Bond and Alexandra August talk about Sunday night’s Chapter 1 finale of “Star Trek: Discovery.”
