In which, Andrew and Dude rewatch and discuss the 1973 sci-fi film Westworld and discuss HBO’s planned series of the same name by Michael Crichton. Both of the guys are skeptical about a long running series based on the source material, but Dude points out that HBO’s desire to produce the show counts for something, and Andrew looks forward to the moral ambiguity that is the hallmark of traditional sci-fi.
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!
