On this episode we discuss random movie memories from childhood, Josh tells us about the oddities of the Japanese postal system, and we take a look at the latest TV and movie news. We also say goodbye to our favourite nerdy website, ThinkGeek. Area 51 - it looks as though the Army of Unfuckable Hate Nerds are set to storm Area 51 on September 20th in order to get 'the truth' India is set to launch a space probe that will land on the Moon's south pole in early September. Further launches hope to see them land people on the moon in 2022. Another Life - we discuss the trailer for the Neflix orginal series starring Katee Sackhoff. The series drops on July 25. Doctor Who's K-9 will be getting its own children's show. No word on who is producing the series or when it will be released. Also no word on if the Doctor will be seen or referenced. Mortal Kombat - the new movie that is coming in 2021 has been confirmed to be R-rated, and will included Fatalities. In Star Trek news, Star Trek Picard has released a teaser poster. It's a man and his dog. The art looks great. Fans are busy speculating and ripping the poster apart for meaning. Trek author David Mack has been named as consultant on the upcoming animated Trek series Lower Decks. He is also involved in either the new Nickelodeon children's CG Trek, or another altogether third cartoon Trek.

Get ready to hear us like never before! Star Trek: we talk about First Contact Day which as everyone knows is April 5, 2063 when the Vulcans came to Earth. This leads us to a fun theory about the 3rd season of Star Trek Discovery and a fun way to keep Anson Mount and Ethan Peck on the series. Could it actually happen? Probably not, but it sure is fun to speculate! We end our Star Trek chat with a look at all the upcoming Hallmark Keepsake ornaments for 2019. Disney/Fox. Now that the merger is complete, Disney is going to keep the Fox brand alive. They will use that division for R rated films and other content that Disney cannot use. As such, we may be getting more movies in the Alien and Planet of the Apes franchises. Shazam. A spoiler-free review of the film. Lucifer season 4. We have the Netflix trailer and we're talking all about the series. The Dead Don't Die trailer. Looks like a fun zombie film with a pile of A-list actors.
