***** SPOILER ALERT *****

This podcast will be discussing plot points of comics and movies which may be considered spoilers. Consider yourselves warned.

“No one cares about Clark Kent taking on the Batman.” – Perry White.  Emotions are at an all time high as Andrew, Tracy, and Dude discuss Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Dude loves it, Tracy hates it, and Andrew is… meh.  Ultimate takeaways:  Wonder Woman rocks, pacing is slow, and everyone would like to see more emotion from Superman.

Therefore I Geek Podcast Episode 56, Star Trek Series Finales

In which, Andrew and Dude (who has finally learned his name) nerd out hardcore discussing all the Star Trek series finales.  They discuss the Next Generation team of the future, agreeing that “old Picard” is the best part of the DS9 finale; Andrew delves into his own distant past for relevant stories.  They take a brief detour into a conversation about Gene Roddenberry’s vision for Star Trek.  The ultimate takeaway from this episode is that Romulans always suck.
