We're taking a break from our deep geek re-watch of Battlestar Galactica to talk about some of the entertainment shenanigans that were happening last week. Kick back while we discuss the merits of tasting whiskey with and without ice, the announcement of the new Matrix movie (with Keanu, Carrie Anne Moss, and one of two Wachowskis), Kevin Smith's new Masters of the Universe anime show for Netflix, and Spidey getting yanked out of the MCU.
Thank you once again to everyone who's been downloading and listening to us chuckleheads - if you really enjoy it, feel free to share it with some friends. That way, you can all laugh along with our particular brand of idiocy!

- For those keeping score at home, it was Bushwacker Luke who had one of the fastest ever eliminations in the Royal Rumble, coming in one side of the ring and being tossed out the other.
- For the record, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (by Douglas Adams) is a five book trilogy.
- Here's the video of Kevin Smith's Masters of the Universe announcement at Powercon.
- Here's the red-band trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (be sure you don't have your speakers cranked at work unless you want to spend the afternoon with HR).
- The brothers who wrote all those songs for Disney? That'd be Robert and Richard Sherman.
- And here's an explanation of what's going on with the rights to the Hulk, which Todd managed to butcher.
AND ANOTHER THING:
- Todd: Check out Another Life starring Katee Sackhoff - the first season is available for streaming on Netflix now.

Does this count as a reboot of the episode? Nah. But you best believe that we're trying to cash in on some of that sweet, sweet sequel money that's been flying around over the last 20 years! This is part two of our discussion on movie and television reboots where we finally get around to talking about the things we like and our fawning admiration for things like Battlestar Galactica and Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.
AND ANOTHER THING...
Tim - Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage is a documentary about the band Rush which is currently streaming on Netflix. Check out the trailer on YouTube.
Todd - The Jim Cornette Experience which can be found on iTunes and other podcasting platforms as well as YouTube. He's also a quality follow on Twitter.
Intro music is "Love It Leave It" by Mama's Boomshack (available for purchase on Bandcamp)
Outro music is "New Bad Habit" by Tumbledown Saints

Reboots and remakes seem to be the order of the day for Hollywood these days - whether we're talking about trying to revive the corpse of an 80's TV show or milk some more money out of a franchise by recasting the whole thing and hoping no one will notice (we're looking at you MIB International...). One thing is for sure, the idea of reboots has been around for quite awhile and it's not going anywhere any time soon.
In this episode, we broke our own rules about podcasts and proceeded to ramble on far too long to make the episode digestible in a single sitting, so for the sake of everyone involved, we've decided to break this sucker in two. This episode will cover the beginning of our discussion on reboots in general and then get into why reboots are the worst. We'll be back next week with the second part which will cover the best.
We tried to be relatively spoiler free, but be warned that there could be some mild spoilers - however, since they're all for movies that you really should have seen by now, we don't feel all that bad.
The video Todd mentioned with Kurt Vonnegut explaining the shape of stories can be found here: https://youtu.be/oP3c1h8v2ZQ
Intro music from this episode is "Love It, Leave It" by Mama's Boomshack from their album Speed Of Soul

In our first episode, we discuss what's worst and best about fans in sports, music, TV, and movies.
Our podcast is structured so you can easily listen all in one take or as two separate parts, like a Side A and B of a record. Intros run until about 7:40 where Side A (The Worst) starts. Side B (The Best) begins at approximately 1:01:00 with the outro starting at about 1:44:00.
Todd's One More Thing was the Chernobyl miniseries currently available on HBO. It was written and produced by Craig Mazin, whom you can hear on the Scriptnotes podcast for screenwriters with John August.
Tim's One More Thing was The Biggest Little Farm, a documentary film about a couple who are followed through their successes and failures as they work to develop a sustainable farm on 200 acres outside of Los Angeles.
