Ep 69: Nice (S3E22)


When a con man abducts commander Data, his only ways to pass the time are trying to smile and trying to sing to a hand puppet. The Enterprise crew’s only hope is to start taking Geordi’s conspiracy theory website seriously. What century has the best bubblegum smell? How anti-semitic is this whole deal? Is her chin messed up because alien or because surgery? It’s an episode that has fewer small hand jokes than it probably should.

#82 - Best Movie Trilogy With Nathan Fillion

Nathan Fillion

Three: It's a magic number. The rule of threes. Snap, Crackle, and Pop. Stooges. Little Pigs. French Hens. And films!

There's nothing quite like a well-made film trilogy, and with so many to choose from, people always argue about which is the best of all time.

That argument is about to be settled, thanks to our trilogy of people: Mark, Hal, and special guest Nathan Fillion, who delve into the history of the silver screen and emerge with the gold standard for film trilogies.

There are STILL tickets to see Mark and Hal LIVE in NYC with John Hodgman, John DiMaggio, Jackson Publick, Doc Hammer, and Jean Grae. Click here to get your tickets now.
