In which our plucky hosts plan to fail by failing to plan and decide to wing it. Tracy talks books that Andrew may never see again, Andrew reminds us that he basically only reads comics in case we forgot the last 80 episodes, and Dude talked about his character dying while the other hosts fantasized it was actually him.

In which, Andrew and Dude discuss the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s vision of a better humanity; namely, Star Trek. They recount their first encounters with the show, how the show actually began, how the show was saved by the fans, and especially the utopia that Roddenberry envisioned in the future.
In which, the gang decides that they are just going to wing it. We mourn the loss of Gene Wilder and Jon Polito, and then launch into a rousing discussion of whether or not Hollywood is doomed!! In a stunning turn of events, Dude concedes a great point to Tracy–the reason? Astounding!
In which, Andrew, Tracy, and Dude reveal that they can actually have an intelligent conversation about a controversial topic, specifically about comic writer Gail Simone’s 1999 musings on why female characters in comics seem to end up violently damaged in order to further the story or provide motivation for their male counterparts. Our heroes break the topic down and look at Gail’s initial conversation starter, and then move into the argument that has been created by various feminists based on that topic. Dude vows to spend the rest of his life–or at least the next few weeks–breaking down the lists of characters who have died in comics to uncover the statistics that may prove or disprove the idea.
