Episode 199: Holidays! Force Awakens! Sci Fi Guilty Pleasures!

It's the penultimate episode before we hit a major milestone... but before we get to 200, we gotta knock out 199, and we bring a heavy hitter to do just that!  Shazbazzar from TechnoRetro Dads Podcast calls in to discuss being a geek, watching fantasy & science fiction, and guilty pleasures.  Put them all together and we have Fave Sci Fi/Fantasy Guilty Pleasures via a miracle of technology!

Also joining d$, Mikey, Pinky & Shaz for the show is Friend of the Show, Terence Malick Apologist and Movie Historian, the honorable Dr. Earl!

Kicking off, a discussion on the new Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer that premiered a few weeks ago during Monday Night Football, and what it takes for Mikey to break down into tears: "I'm pregnant with Star Wars..."

Plus, the excitement of the long forgotten tradition of going and standing in line for actual tickets to a movie coming out...

Then, moving on to Rotten Tomatoes, with a round of 1980s classic films to guess the score on.

A Holiday Movie Preview gives a quick take on upcoming films like the latest Rocky film, "Creed", as Apollo's son gets in the ring... Zac Efron as Han Solo, maybe... Daniel Radcliffe as "Igor" in a Frankenstein take... the limited release "The Ridiculous 6" on Netflix... the Star Wars coming out... Tina Fey & Amy Poehler in "Sisters"... the agenda driven "Concussion"... the horrible idea to remake "Point Break"... J-Law in "Joy"... Pinky's dream of "The Hateful 8"... and "The Reverent"

Finally, the real reason for the show... the Favorite Sci Fi / Fantasy guilty pleasure films, including a Kris Kristofferson time travel classic...  a forgotten Star Wars ripoff billed as "A Magnificent Seven in Space"... why "Face / Off" is not really a guilty pleasure... a movie that features Kangaroo Warriors... sending Hilary Swank to the center of the Earth... the movie known as The Longest Taco Bell Commercial in History... Greg Evigan vs Peter Weller in the battle of undersea aliens...

And to wrap up, a Pretty in Pink featuring "Hellraiser"
