We're back after nearly a month of not recording new episodes, and boy, do we only kind of remember how this thing works. If memory serves, it's mostly just a fancast of Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis," right? Right?!

Suggested talking points: PJ Masks, Brush On The Go, Kissing Scenes, Boss Mugging, Standing Still in Memphis, Griffin's Occupation, Dipping Posters, Cereal from Heaven

The Greatest Generation Ep 176: Greatest Generation Forever (S7E25)

When Captain Picard starts slipping through time, his sanity is called into question. But when Q shows up to blame him for the creation of a space-time butthole, Picard must unify the crews of his past, present and future in order to save humanity. Does Star Trek First Contact bubble bath have an expiration date? Does Worf have a holodeck eating disorder? What does all this have to do with Joel Schumacher’s Batman films? It’s the episode that’s the end of one thing, and the beginning of another!

The Greatest Generation Ep 175: It’s Like They Skinned Rowlf (S7E24)

When Lieutenant Ro is sent on a mission to infiltrate the Maquis, it’s just another late-Season 7 daddy-issues episode. But when the conflict between her loyalty to the Federation and her hatred of Cardassians comes to the fore, Picard doubles down on his inappropriate workplace behavior. Is Beverly the ship’s greatest disease vector? Are Starfleet officers the narcs of the Alpha Quadrant? How are we supposed to sympathize with Bajorans when all they eat are wraps? Everybody knows that the Federation are the good guys, but what this episode presupposes is, maybe they’re not?

Minority Korner

Synchronize your watches because it's time... to give a fuck! We weigh in on the NFL Boycott and make an attempt to see both sides. James kicks it off (see what we did there) looking at two articles from the Root on opposite sides of the conversation. We'll catch you up on the man that started it all, Colin Kapernick, and theorize the real reason he's not getting picked by a team, why the NBA isn't having this same problem supporting it's players in their peaceful protests, and just what you can do to get involved! If you haven't participated in any #resist/#persist movements this year: now's the time! Nnekay continues the conversation examining the history of our National Anthem that we hear are sports games all the time, along with it's author. It might not surprise you that it comes from racist roots, and Francis Scott Key, author of the Star Spangled Banner... was a white supremacist. Also did you know about the missing 3rd stanza? What got his beef started with Black folks, turning him into a past day Taylor Swift? But FIRST! James is back to the Estados Unidos, and is back to his Carmen San Diego tricks again. Jetsetting to Portland for a Marvel THWIP Shoot in Portland, James has something he'd like to discuss in regards to this "liberal" town. Also legendary Voodoo Donuts... we need to talk. Life After Hate is an organization that needs your dollas! It was started by former white supremacist in Portland, working to end the irradiation of the KKK... See why we need to talk about Portland? Most importantly we need to talk about our friend... Ms. Jackson- cause we at nasty (definitely living up to our EXPLICIT in this episode). James has some inside scoop on why she's crying on stage, after her divorce, and what really happened in the marriage... ALLEGEDLY (for legal reasons). Also, Nnekay has tips about the power of a Manj wig. Ever on an airplane and not sure what to watch? James has been on so many planes he's got your airplane movie reviews! Rough Night Out, Baywatch, Alien:Covenant, The Mummy, Unbreakable, which one's to watch and which to.. skip! Stick around to the end to hear James' bombshell announcement!

It's our late show from Boston's beautiful Wilbur Theater! We spent almost all of it doing audience questions, with ... mixed results, I think it's safe to say. It got pretty buckwild.

When a clump of crazy straws sets up shop inside the wiring of the Enterprise, the ship’s holodeck programs become self aware. But when the characters begin to endanger the ship, they attempt to take back control by playing by their rules. Who's got time for canapés? Is there something going on between Jellico and Nechayev? Does the Parrot Army have anything to do with any of this? It's the episode where we finally decide what Riker's favorite sexual position is.
