Robots, dogs, movies, Area 51, the postal system and Star Trek!

Happy 79th birthday to Patrick Stewart, and happy Con Air Day to the rest of you. On this episode we discuss random movie memories from childhood, Josh tells us about the oddities of the Japanese postal system, and we take a look at the latest TV and movie news. We also say goodbye to our favourite nerdy website, ThinkGeek.

  • Area 51 - it looks as though the Army of Unfuckable Hate Nerds are set to storm Area 51 on September 20th in order to get 'the truth'
  • India is set to launch a space probe that will land on the Moon's south pole in early September. Further launches hope to see them land people on the moon in 2022.
  • Another Life - we discuss the trailer for the Neflix orginal series starring Katee Sackhoff. The series drops on July 25.
  • Doctor Who's K-9 will be getting its own children's show. No word on who is producing the series or when it will be released. Also no word on if the Doctor will be seen or referenced.
  • Mortal Kombat - the new movie that is coming in 2021 has been confirmed to be R-rated, and will included Fatalities.

In Star Trek news, Star Trek Picard has released a teaser poster. It's a man and his dog. The art looks great. Fans are busy speculating and ripping the poster apart for meaning. Trek author David Mack has been named as consultant on the upcoming animated Trek series Lower Decks. He is also involved in either the new Nickelodeon children's CG Trek, or another altogether third cartoon Trek.
