Space pimps with feathers in their hats, eye patches, apes and cars!

Star Trek Picard's fifth episode has us excited and ready for more. We laughed, we cried, and now we want more. We learn about Bruce Maddox, 7 of 9, and so much more. We have more Star Trek coming and CBS All Access broke sign up records.

Lucifer may get more seasons at Netflix.

Battlestar Galactica is coming to the Peacock, the new streaming service from NBC launching this summer. It's not a reboot or a re-imagining.

M*A*S*H and anime!

Delorean is set to launch up to 325 new cars in its DMC 12S line. We could be seeing these within the next year.

Planet of the Apes. Rumours are swirling. Will we get a new franchise series, or will the story of Caesar continue?

Birds of Prey, Picard, Hollywood and comic movies!

The Golden Age of Hollywood becomes a rather fun discussion because we have recently lost some of the very last actors from that era.

Star Trek Picard episode 3 review. We're talking about how much we don't know about the future. Romulans in control of the Federation and Starfleet? Borg, AI, the haves and have nots in a post scarcity utopia? So many questions.

Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey movie review. It was a movie, that's for sure.

X-Men in the MCU? Rogue may be part of Captain Marvel 2. Could this be how they introduce mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Mary Elizabeth Winstead wants to see a sequel to Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. Set about 10 years after the original...will it happen?

Sam Raimi may be the new director of Doctor Strange 2. Bruce Campbell cameo? Will they collapse the multiverse?
