Episode 105: Punching Space Sharks

0105 Off-Topic 7Dear listeners, it is time for our seventh Off-Topic Extravaganza! That’s right, the episode number is a multiple of 15, which means this episode is entirely constructed of outtakes from the previous 14 episodes. These clips were sliced out because of time constraints, irrelevance, and/or inebriation, but we felt we could still put them to some good use.

Monte (aka Chris Bowlsby)

  1. Melissa is not alone in her Star Trek Beyond trailer giddiness. Justin Lin action. Screenplay by Simon Pegg. This trailer is a glorious supernova chasing down a Klingon fleet racing through the cosmos while head banging to an 8-track of metal. If it weren’t for Hardcore Henry, this would be my favorite trailer of the year so far.

    Also, I’m fully down for Emmerich & Devlin reunited for another Independence Day.

    1. I just saw the trailer for Hardcore Henry, and it’s either going to be the awesomest thing in the history of awesome, or it’s going to be a bucket of motion sickness. I WILL INVESTIGATE THOROUGHLY. FOR SCIENCE.

      Also, it’s coming out one day before my wedding. I’m considering how to leverage that.
