The Greatest Generation Ep 132: Captain Potter (S6E7)

| 0 comments

When a Previa containing Captain Picard, Ensign Ro, Guinan (and some other minor character) are transformed from the proud adults we've come to know into children, it becomes a great time for an enemy to hijack the Entrepreneur. Unfortunately, these hijackers are NOT smarter than a 5th grader. What is the worst ring tone? Why doesn't young Picard have an inner monologue? What's the market like for a used Galaxy Class starship? It's the episode that's working in shifts.

Bubble by Jordan Morris

| 0 comments

Bubble is a television pilot written by Jordan Morris.

Morgan and her friends live in Fairhaven, a Brooklyn-esque Silverlake-y hipster paradise where trust fund kids go to be lightly employed and follow their dreams, or whatever. PROS: Great coffee, burgeoning art scene, artisanal vape shops. CONS: Separated from the outside world by a man-made bubble, murderous beasts from the outside are slowly invading, long waits for brunch.

Minority Korner

James has quite the surprise to jump start the show, what celebrity is he now one degree of separation away from? Find out! But first: several tangents! In this fairy tale themed episode JamKay break down the TRUTH behind some of these fairy tales, what was really going on with this misunderstood, diabetic witch who lived in the woods before the entitled Hansel & Gretel showed up at her door? And don't even get us started on that Goldilocks... too late! Nnekay is going to a fancy event at the MOMA in San Francisco, will she meet Solange? Perhaps with some Oprah like coaching from James and his visualization techniques, and some throwing of elbows from Nnekay- she just might have a chance! As teased from last week James delivers as we explore the history of the Pink Triangle, which takes us to Nazi Germany, and the treatment of homosexuals. Could this happen again? Is it? We also look at the power and influence of queer culture as evidenced in the documentary Paris is Burning. Nnekay has another listicle for you and this time it is even more specific, like a very fine tuned Netflix sub-sub-sub category: Books for Kids featuring Black Protagonists not about Slavery, Sports, or Civil Rights. YES! But this leads into a larger conversation of Black stories in media, from Empire, to Scandal. We have some fan mail to read, thoughts on the Live Action Lion King, and we will bring up Rachel Dolezal for the last time.

It’s a tale of two WWE shows…

You’ve got Smackdown which has set up a lot of stars, including Jinder Mahal, The Singh brothers and Breezango, for the spotlight that’s eluded them in their careers. But is that push coming too fast and too soon? We’ll take a look.

On the other hand, you’ve got RAW, which is treading water going into the first post-Wrestlemania Pay Per View “Payback.” But there were still a few things worth noting this week, including the much-hyped Dumpster Match between Kalisto and Braun Strowman.

My Special Wrestler

Chris Cubas is a stand-up comedian who had previously lapsed as a wrestling fan for a number of years. But who finally brought back the excitement for him? None other than the hardcore legend, Mick Foley.

Visit Chris online to find out about all of his ongoing projects.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Screenjunkies’s coverage of the upcoming Vince McMahon biopic

Mike put over Table for three starring Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash and AJ Styles..

Hal put over JBL on Talking Smack.
