We take you back to the 1990′s for this week’s episode. Mystery Science Theater 3000 was one of our favorite shows back in those days. It had a simple concept. A guy with his robot friends “riffing” the most horrible movies you can ever see. With the availability of the show on Amazon Instant Download, we give you some of our favorites.
We also talk the Sci-Fi and Horror Super Bowl ads, more on the defunct Superman Lives, and Firefly – how can they bring it back without Wash? We give you our review of Hansel and Gretel, talk up World War Z and give a retro review of Paranorman.
Of course, we always have Doctor Who and we have a ton of 50th anniversary news – plus our Legacy Who Redux features The Tomb of the Cybermen!

Okay, so better late than never – right? TFA Episode 6 is coming at you with our biggest show ever. While sometimes bigger doesn’t mean better – in this case it most certainly is. We give you the news of the weird with testicle eating Fish and an ex-CIA agent claiming the Roswell Crash was really extra-terrestrial (no duh). We give you the skinny on just which villain Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in JJ Abrams’ Star Trek 2. Rita accuses JC of crushing on the naked Nathan Fillion (of Firefly). Rita goes bonkers for the return of Sailor Moon. We also give our review of the new hit film The Amazing Spider-Man.
Then we go off the deep end, talking about Sci-Fi and Horror shows that are no longer on the air and we miss dearly (Yes Firefly, Stargate SG-1 and Buffy are on the list – among many others).
We have a new segment this week – the Retro Review – where we’ll give a new review of old tv shows and movies. In our Transmissions Received segment, we have best selling author of the Wool series, Hugh Howey in for a chat on remarkable trip to the top of the Amazon Best Seller charts as an independent author.
Rita goes Harry Potter nutzo as we review the book series in Rita’s Reading Review and preview Ascendio 2012 – the Con later this week in Orlando, Florida.
We have more naked John Barrowman (Torchwood) discussion, could River and Captain Jack end up in a spinoff series (we had it first)? Plus other Doctor Who news.
We wrap up this marathon session by reviewing the last two episodes of True Blood.
We are packed to the gills…watch out!
