Star Wars, Dinosaurs & End Games - 242

April 28, 2019

Spoiler-free discussions about all the pop culture things! We have robots, dinosaurs, Star Wars, Star Trek Discovery, Anime and more this week.

So the universe is not as old as we thought. And it's expanding faster than expected.

Free Comic Book Day is on Star Wars Day this year (May 4th)

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker. The trailer was releases a couple weeks ago. We have some ideas, speculation, and things to say about this upcoming film that is set to end the Skywalker saga after 42 years.

Avengers: Endgame breaks all the records as expected. Other endings this year include Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, and Santa Clarita Diet.

Star Trek News: Discovery finishes up season 2 with a bang, a cliffhanger of sorts, a look at beardless Spock and fans clamoring for a Captain Pike series. Nickelodeon has plans for a CG-animated Star Trek show based on a group of lawless teenagers who discover a derelict Starfleet vessel. No name or release date as of yet.

What We Left Behind. The Star Trek Deep Space Nine documentary will be released to theatres for one day only on May 13th. Looks like a great, informative film.

Shane Rimmer. Our UK Correspondent Paul Wright gives us some amazing background on an actor we lost late last month.

The Velocipastor. This trailer looks insanely funny, crude and amazing. A definite B movie, but seems like a great time at the theatre.

Lost In Space comes to DVD on June 4th.

We wrap up with a chat about Anime. Josh has multiple recommendations this week.

Kittens Are Better Than Movies - 241

Kittens are better than movies according to Kitty. Do we believe her? You'll have to listen to find out!

This week we record a quick and dirty episode...it's getting late and there's no time for a major editing job. This is the raw version of the Rusted Robot Podcast. Get ready to hear us like never before!

Star Trek: we talk about First Contact Day which as everyone knows is April 5, 2063 when the Vulcans came to Earth. This leads us to a fun theory about the 3rd season of Star Trek Discovery and a fun way to keep Anson Mount and Ethan Peck on the series. Could it actually happen? Probably not, but it sure is fun to speculate! We end our Star Trek chat with a look at all the upcoming Hallmark Keepsake ornaments for 2019.

Disney/Fox. Now that the merger is complete, Disney is going to keep the Fox brand alive. They will use that division for R rated films and other content that Disney cannot use. As such, we may be getting more movies in the Alien and Planet of the Apes franchises.

Shazam. A spoiler-free review of the film.

Lucifer season 4. We have the Netflix trailer and we're talking all about the series.

The Dead Don't Die trailer. Looks like a fun zombie film with a pile of A-list actors. The same kind of fun film as Shaun of the Dead.

Joker trailer. We are not sure what to think of this thing. Could be extremely weird or a heck of a lot of fun. Marc Maron is in it. So that's cool.

Threadbare. Audio book series. Josh loves it.

Mythical creatures. We have the answers to last week's hypothetical question.
