New York City Comic-Con 2018 has come and gone, and that means...MORE TRAILERS.  So, we talk about Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina trailer and DC's extended trailer for Aquaman.  Plus, we now know the title for the new Star Wars live-action series (plus we got a photo) - The Mandalorian.  So, we HAVE to talk about that, right?  Jeff, Regina and Darth Taxus have had a chance to hear Scott's fiction podcast - The Crimson Files, and they share their thoughts on it.  All this, plus fried food and puking!  How can you turn away from that???

We react and discuss the trailers for Captain Marvel, Star Wars Resistance, Fantastic Beasts 2 and Bumblebee.  We'll address the controversy surrounding the Nagini reveal in the trailer for Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindelwald.  In the spirit of prequel controversies, Darth Taxus challenges us to create an intentionally bad idea for a film.  We'll also talk about the announcements of less Star Wars movies and Kathleen Kennedy's Lucasfilm extension.

Superman celebrated his 80th anniversary.  It might get really messy if he blew out all those candles...so, we'll do it for him.  In this episode, we'll hear birthday messages from some of his most famous villains.  Last week, we discussed how much we loved Ready Player One.  So this week, we'll react to a commentary that hated it and react to the movie - The Quiet Place.  Finally we'll discuss the upcoming MASK and Blackhawk movies.  This is going to be a party full of cake, candles and crazy closing questions.  You're invited to join us!

We are ready to review Ready Player One this week.  We hope you're ready too!  While 80s themes are plastered all over that movie, more classic console games have been announced IRL.  However, the Avengers are getting ready for the battle of their lives in Infinity War, and we're predicting who might die and the Rotten Tomatoes score.  The Announcement of a new Rick and Morty comic-book has inspired Darth Taxus to turn the geeks into characters from the show and make them fight it out (oh jeez).  Also, the reigning Geek Supreme gets to infuse his own MEGASEGMENT into the episode.

We live in a world where people find it necessary to create all-male and all-female versions of Star Wars moves and declare unreleased films to be utter disasters before any footage has been seen.  So, we need to have a podcast about it.  Don't worry, we also talk about vampires in Law & Order and cardboard boxes that make great video games!  So, there's some normalcy here.  However, the geeks have to weather it all effectively because Darth Taxus is going to reward The Geek Supreme and penalize the losers.  However, neither the winner or the losers get a shirtless Jeff Goldblum Funko Pop.

Darth Taxus quizzes the contestants on DC animated and live action films.  Mark Hamill doesn't want people to spoil The Last Jedi, so Darth Taxus asks everyone to come up with the worst possible things that could happen in the movie.  As everyone knows, when Episode 8 is discussed, there is a good chance the word PORG will come up.
