This ain’t no show for intergalactic greenhorns, pardners! So, sidle on up to the bar and order up a round for the crew, because we’re settlin’ in to talk about Space Westerns!
First, though, the Admiral and Kennedy have a “toy-off” as they rejoice in nearing the ends of their simultaneous unpacking efforts from their recent moves; Nimoy is packing in his convention appearances (allegedly) after the recently finished Las Vegas Creation mega-party and the upcoming Chicago convention this September 30; the Admiral has time-warped back to his youth with Star Trek: The Animated Series on Netflix streaming; Kennedy tries to surprise Ro with a sci-fi movie recommendation but underestimates the Bionic extremes to which she has already gone in pursuit of certain actresses; The Nerdist podcast interviewed Wil Wheaton, Matt Smith, and Karen Gillan and the Admiral says it’s good; Kennedy dips into his archive of geekery to plug the Garrett Wang GeeksOn interview and episode 10 of …Do You Think That’s Just Bollocks?; and more space news, now with private docking and Uranus humor!
Then it’s time to head ‘em up and move ‘em out to that big rodeo in the sky as the crew discuss Cowboys and Aliens, The Adventures of Chin-co County, Jr. MacGuyver and Q in the Old West (?), Will Smith is NOT James West, Back to the Future III and the branchless McFly family tree, Andie MacDowell as H.G. Wells? (Ro! Put the rum down and pay attention!), Michael Knight versus Jack the Ripper, Westworld, Wagon Train to the stars?, The Valley of Gwangi, Cowboy Bebop, and only one mention to the greatest space western of them all…”A Fistful of Datas.”
