When their brand new ship takes a lot of body damage, some radical Cardassians put in at the station for a buff-out. But when the pilot turns out to be an old friend of Quark’s, his interest in her becomes more than academic. What does Quark get out of giving oral? Is ‘bloody dress’ a fashion statement or a metaphor? Could Odo ever safely impersonate a table at the Promenade’s Chili’s Too location? It’s the episode where we find out what’s in it for Adam.

| 0 comments

Ross and Carrie want to learn astral projection, but first they have to get in a car and physically travel to the International Academy of Consciousness. On day one, their first instructor teaches the important concepts of Conscientiology and Projectiology: the intraphysical vs extraphysical, the connection of the frontochakra to the energosoma's nuchal chakra, the silver cord, evolution, phytoenergy, thosenes and holothosenes. Does it all make sense now

Incredibles 2

This week we have a truly INCREDIBLE episode. Drea returns to discuss Pixar's Incredibles 2. Once again, things get very SEXY when Alonso reads Anthony Lane's controversial review of the film from the New Yorker. The crew compares and contrasts Incredibles 2 with other Pixar films. Drea chastises the gang for quoting her on a previous episode and not giving a proper citation. PLUS, Alonso educates everyone on the current state of queer cinema; what's bad, what's good, and what's the future.

In news, Tiffany Haddish tries to get busy with Leonardo DiCaprio, something weird is going on with the Gotti audience reviews, and Natalie Portman wants to make a vegan cooking show.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Hulk
Drea - Sin Nombre
April - Eyes of Fire
Alonso - Tag

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom with Jordan Morris

With Alonso Duralde, April Wolfe, Drea Clark and Ricky Carmona.

James is BACK in the BAY! But sadly the duo aren't in the same room, yet- but that's coming! James had his West Coast debut as a comedian at a cat themed stand up show. The wonder twins talk art history and the majesty of Beyonce and Jay-Z aka The Carters and their new album and the visual richness of the video for Apeshit. Nnekay went to Janelle Monae and has lost all of her damn edges due to the sheer amazingness black female empowerment. The night before James went to Kathy Griffin at the same venue!!! He talks abut her fight against the Trump Administration. In the Korners, Nnekay talks about Romans 13 the bible verse that has been use to give legitimacy to many horrific events in world history- including most recently Jeff Sessions' use of it to plead the case for separating undocumented families. James talks about California's dirty past of trying but (thankfully) failing to ban black people from living in the state.

Tights and Fights Ep. 96: The NXT TakeOver Chicago II and Money in the Bank Special

What a week of wrestling it’s been!

And not just because of WWE; we’re still basking in the afterglow of New Japan Dominion and Kenny Omega finally capturing the IWGP World Heavyweight. But Kenny’s big month wasn’t done there; he traveled to Los Angeles with the Young Bucks to take on the New Day in Street Fighter at E3! And our own Mike Eagle was there live to watch the whole thing happen. He’ll tell us all about and explain what he did with the Pancake he caught from Xavier Woods at the event.

NXT TakeOver: Chicago II

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano’s feud of the year continues, Aleister Black and the NXT Title once again are left out of the main event spot, Undisputed Era had a really fun bout with One Lorcan and Danny Burch, and Shayna Baszler gave Nikki Cross the collapse into unconsciousness that she longed for.

We’re running down everything… including Velveteen Dream’s gear choice in his match against Ricochet.

Money In The Bank

In the last week, we’ve crowned new champions in Alexa Bliss and Dolph Ziggler and have a new Monster in the Bank in Braun Strowman.

Which stars are in the best position to be successful as we enter the second half of the year? Is Shinsuke Nakamura worse off for not having captured the WWE Championship? And what do we think of the sudden and unceremonious firing of Big Cass?

Hosted by Danielle Radford, Mike Eagle and LindseyKelk.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
