Getting paid on the Enterprise: How does money work on Star Trek?

The latest episode of Geek/Countergeek has Keith Conrad and I discussing Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary, the new blu-ray collection, and how money – or more specifically commerce – works in Gene Roddenberry’s utopian future.

Just how much do garbage men make in the United Federation of Planets?

Eating Crow: The Star Trek Beyond Review on “Geek/Countergeek”

In this latest edition of “Geek/Countergeek” Keith and I offer our reviews and reflections on the new Ghostbusters movie. How did it hold up next to the original films?

And, after lamenting how Star Trek has lost its way with the recent movies – and even giving poor Chris Pine grief – I have to eat my share of crow after seeing Star Trek Beyond…

Now I’m looking forward to the new television series!

What did you think about Star Trek Beyond?

Can you guess “What’s in the Box?”

Every Friday on “Pretty Late with Patti Vasquez” we play a game called “What’s in the Box.” In the game, callers are read online reviews for different products and must guess if it is for an appliance or an adult toy. The game makes for some very funny moments, and in this round, one of the Marines in attendance asked that I read one of my reviews as Yoda.

Give it a listen and have a laugh!

Talking about Alien Invasions and Scientology

This week’s Geek/Countergeek got a wee bit heavier than I expected it would. Co-host Keith Conrad and I started off talking about geeky stuff, but then I kind of veered into a rant on Scientology and what scams some religious leaders pull. This is the kind of stuff that is bound to piss some folks off if they’re paying attention. I’m guessing they’re not. 😉

Give it a listen and let me know what you think?

Ghostbusters Universe? Talking about the Ghostbusters reboot and the merits of GB2 with Keith Conrad

This week’s edition of Geek/Countergeek has Keith Conrad and me discussing the Ghostbusters franchise. What’s up with this new announced “male Ghostbusters” film?

All this and more Star Wars talk including the announcement of “SW: Rogue One”!
