The Geek Supreme competition is back with a new round of questions.  Should Marvel create their own convention?  How scary was that New Mutants trailer?  How scary was that Last Jedi trailer?  Does Emperor Palpatine need to be greased up? (Wait, how did that question get in there?) Listen to find out, and try not to throw up a little.

Last week, Darth Taxus asked the geeks to predict what My Little Pony: The Movie would score on Rotten Tomatoes. You'll hear the results and find out how much they know about the ponies.  They'll also discuss the new Sigmund and the Sea Monsters show that's coming to Amazon.  Plus, everyone will share what New York Comic-Con news caught their attention, including retro themes, comics, famous people in costumes, animation and more.  Then, we find out who has had the most embarrassing experience at a convention (Scott and Jeff make that a close one).  Finally, we'll play the geek version of Password - GEEKWORD.

Last week, Jeff and Regina engaged in a passionate disagreement about Star Trek Discovery.  This week we find out how that debate continued past the show and into text messaging.  We'll also learn if anything has changed since the second episode of the series was released.  In other TV talk, Scott reviews Young Sheldon and Regina shares her thoughts on Inhumans.  So, why is James Cameron making another Terminator?  Better yet, why is he continuously DUMPING on Wonder Woman?  Is it fair to pit Sarah Connor against Diana Prince?  David Bowie could've been the new Blade Runner villain, so Darth Taxus wants to know what other musicians would make great villains (and screamers).  The geeks will also react to Danny Elfman's comments about his approach to the Justice League soundtrack and make Rotten Tomatoes predictions for My Little Pony: The Movie.
