May 17, 2022

That's right, we said it. We dive into the wreckage of what was a promising season of storytelling and figure out what went wrong along the way. Uncle Todd gets the chance to vent about his issues with the show, The Man They Call Tim attempts to throw in some bright spots, and we virtually guarantee that we will never be invited to a Trek convention for as long as we live. Enjoy!

Also... We talk about a possible character returning to face off with Boba Fett, the potential release date for Mando season 3, our thoughts on the Moon Knight season finale, and... *sigh* ... The Man They Call Tim continues his reign of terror with Red Five Star Wars trivia.
