Happy Geek Year!

As we look forward to a new year of geeky goodness in the world of pop culture entertainment, we take this time to remember the year that was 2018. On this episode, Shawn and Josh take a trip down memory road. Highlights include some of the movies we saw at the theatre, celebrity deaths, and the Tide Pod phenomena.

Major discussions on this episode include the Lost in Space reboot on Netflix and Star Trek Discovery. Star Wars and Mark Hamill are also a big topic on this episode. And the fact we joined the ESO Network is big news this year. And of course, one cannot forget the life and legacy of Stan Lee.

This week, after a quick introduction to set the stage, we replay the original 'Josh and Kitty join the crew' episode. That's right! We are repeating episode 91!

TMNT 2 Drunk Watch!

The Rusted Robot gang celebrated their 200th episode by getting drunk and watching the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie. After recording that episode they decided to watch the second Turtles film. They were still drunk. Maybe more drunk than they had planned on. So they recorded themselves and the movie and commented as it played, all the while never knowing if the recording would ever be released. Here it is! You are about to listen to a unique moment in time.

Enjoy our witty comments. Watch the movie along with us! Leave a 5 star review in the pod catcher of your choice. Find us on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, FaceBook and everywhere else!

The Smiling Spock Dilemma - #224

The Smiling Spock Dilemma - #224

December 2, 2018

Star Trek, Space Opera, and Superheroes!

We start the episode with a brief discussion of what comes after we die, whether or not we can know of the existence of a creator and an inquiry into atheism versus agnosticism.

Talk of Hallowe'en and school project homework leads to an exciiting look at favourite holidays. And we want to embark on a Rusted Robot world-wide promotional tour.

Star Trek Discovery releases another trailer for season 2 and we see a smiling Spock. We take a look at how seeing Spock show emotion isn't necessarily great for the character. Also discussed are the Vulcan species as a whole and the problem of mono cultures in Star Trek and science fiction.

Artemis Fowl trailer. It's a movie based on an 8 part Young Adult book series. We don't know much about it and the trailer tells us very little.

Science Fiction vs Science Fantasy vs Space Opera.

Nick Nolte is cast in The Mandalorian in an unknown role.

Venom is breaking movie records all over the world.

DareDevil is cancelled by Marvel and Netflix. Jessica Jones is filming its third and final season. The Punisher has wrapped up its second season.

Peter Weller will not be reprising the role of Robocop in the upcoming sequel.

RIP: George Bush Sr, and Steven Hillenburg
