The Greatest Generation Ep 184: Achilles’ Ear (DS9 S1E6)

| 0 comments

When Vash returns from the Gamma Quadrant with a sack full of toys, she brings back with her a person who knows when she’s asleep and when she’s awake. But when an auction for the quadrant’s hottest item starts causing bangers all over DS9, it’ll take more than a six finger discount to end the bidding. What kinds of holosuite programs does O’brien use to unwind after work? Have we seen ear diddling before? Is Vash more of a “cowboy” or “medium single” type? It’s an episode that was written for the wrong series!

Judge John Hodgman and Bailiff Jesse Thorn are riding the circuit to bring Live Justice to a stage near you.

Direct from Judge John Hodgman Podcast (named Fifteenth in Rolling Stone’s top 20 comedy podcasts!), Judge Hodgman and Bailiff Thorn are bringing their mix of non-swearing comedy, pop culture obsession, and sheer, unadulterated fake legal wisdom to the stage.

Along with surprises, special guests, and live justice lightning rounds, each show will feature a number of live hearings between people in your town. Judge Hodgman will listen to both sides and then tell them who is right and who is wrong.

Previous disputes have included:
-is a hot dog a sandwich?
-when is it may someone else’s Chinese food be legally considered abandoned property?
-is it OK to rifle through the trash for prize coupons in a Canadian pizza parlor?
-will you order my mom to buy me a motorcycle and a vape pen?

If you have a long-simmering fight with a friend or loved one that you’d finally like resolved, submit your case to maximumfun.org/jjho and specify that you wish to be heard live on stage and tell us where you live.

Or, just shut your pie hole and come and enjoy the show!

Ready. Set. Go! James returns from Run Disney weekend, the main event he's been training for over the past 2 months to complete his first 10K... did he?... dun dun dun! While at Disneyland Resort the magic of Disney wore off of James as he discovered 5 racist rides at Disneyland that need some serious side eye, and a makeover. Get ready to have your childhood bubble burst! For example do you know the racist movie Splash Mountain is based on? Song of the South, which gave us complicated songs like Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, and characters like Uncle Remus. James breaks it down! Up next it's Nnekay's most passionate korner to date! In response to the Made Well campaign Nnekay unpacks how and why Black women's hair in particular is political and is a keen example of intersectionality of Blackness and feminism, along with it's history and protest. Also the debate over Ferris Wheels is waged, and we can neither confirm or deny if this episode will discuss or talk about sex benches.

It’s the final stop before the last Big 4 WWE show of the year!

Survivor Series continues to have tons of wrenches thrown into it at the 11th hour. Turns out Alexa Bliss will be facing Charlotte on Sunday after she beat Natalia for the Smackdown Women’s title. Between this, Roman Reigns returning, and Jason Jordan being replaced on the RAW team, there’s a lot going on. But is all of this serving to make for a better show, or is it just showing how haphazardly WWE is putting this together?

Speaking of Roman he and the Shield finally had their first match as a unit in years. They’re all set to face the New Day in few days. Should they have wait for a bit longer for that Shield reunion? How about that RAW invasion? What are the stakes as we approach Sunday?

And how excited is Danielle to have a fourth season of Lucha Underground confirmed?!

Main Event

Triple H is officially the fifth member of Monday Night RAW’s Survivor Series team! Between him, Kurt Angle, Shane McMahon and John Cena, that’s FOUR part-time wrestlers split across each team. Is this the best way to utilize a partite performer in WWE? What is? Should a part-timer ever be champion? We’ll talk about it.
