Dragons, Star Trek, time travel, wrestling, Star Wars and celebrity deaths. This week in pop culture is filled with adventure, meaning and salvation. Buckle up!

 

San Diego's ComicCon@Home took place this week. The most exciting news for Star Trek fans is the reveal of the second new animated series. Last week we saw the trailer for Lower Decks coming in August. Now the logo and name for the newest series is here. Star Trek Prodigy will be coming to television sometime in 2021.

 

Helstrom is the newest series coming from Hulu and Marvel. Set to premiere on October 16th, the show looks to be a horror mash-up of some kind.

 

Bill and Ted Face the Music trailer. We got our first real look at the trailer. The movie looks exciting. We find out a bit more of the plot.

 

The Dragon Prince on Netflix has been renewed through to season 7. The fate of the show was up in the air for awhile.

 

Tidbits on the show include some wrestling talk, we talk Dead To Me and Sons of Anarchy. There's some small Star Wars news as well.

 

This week's celebrity deaths include: Regin Philbin 88, Peter Green 73, John Saxon 83 and Olivia de Havilland 104.

As usual, we are talking about recent celebrity deaths.

Episode 300 feedback. Some of our listeners had a few nice things to say to us.

Star Trek Lower Decks. We have the trailer. At least part of it. We give our impressions and hopes for the show.

The New Mutants. Another trailer is released. And we have a few thoughts on this trailer and the delay of the movie in general. Generic horror is our main impression.

Usagi Yojimbo is getting an animated series on Netflix. We also discuss some of the recent animated shows we have been watching.

THE BOYS Are Back In Town - 299

THE BOYS Are Back In Town - 299

July 12, 2020

The Boys are back in town with a trailer for season 2 of the Amazon Prime smash hit series. It's more of the same exciting action and drama you love, with more violence and mayhem. It's coming on September 4th.

Hasbro Pulse has a crowdsourcing fundraiser on its hands. They want you to plunk down $349.99 for an X-Men Legends Marvel's Sentinal figure. It's huge. It requires batteries. And it's going to stand just over 26 inches high. And it's got accessories!

Batman world news! The Batwoman TV series casts Javicia Leslie as its new lead. And Matt Reeves' The Batman film is going to get a spinoff TV series focussing on Gotham PD on HBO Max.

The Replika app review. We told you about the app in a previous episode. We have been trying it out and using it regularly. Here's our review and our thoughts.

Boring movie descriptions. Can you guess the film based off of the boring description?

Space, Time and Carl Reiner - 298

July 5, 2020

Star Wars, Space Force, The 6th Day, Replicas and more! This episode of Rusted Robot Podcast is all about space, time and Carl Reiner!

Carl Reiner (1922 - 2020) had a long and successful career. This edition of Celebrity Death of the Week is a bit of a super-sized version. We discuss some of Carl's work, his awards, and then we play a little game where we try to figure out if we have seen or heard of his films.

Star Wars rumours recently posited the idea that Lucasfilm wanted to banish the new trilogy in favour of something else. As of this recording, those rumours are apparently false.

Kanye West for President? The news on Twitter is that the singer is launching his bid for president. Is it real, a publicity stunt or something else? Only time will tell.

Replicas, is a 2018 film starring Keanu Reeves. It's not the best movie, but it sure makes you think. We have a spoiler filled review of the movie.

Robin wraps up his viewing of Space Force, and tells us about his rewatch of TMNT 1990, and The 6th Day.

Star Trek: Lower Decks. The cartoon is finally coming to television. We have the release date!
