Final Reckoning: A Series of Unfortunate Events

We’re not thrilled about the pace of this season, but we’ll keep bringing you the latest ’cause we love you.

It’s a shorter episode tonight due to an oncoming illness, but at least we have NyQuil is if beer isn’t on the menu. Of course we cover Paulie and the silly fight, Brad’s reaction to potential infidelity, and the process to get back into the house after you’re in Redemption. Four episodes in and we’re still learning how the game works and very few have been sent home. Brace yourselves for a long season everyone. We’re just getting warmed up.

Champs vs Stars: Bank Rollin’ in the Deep

Well, we made it. Another season finale. Who puts on frozen clothes the fastest? Who eats the most gross food? Do the dad bods stand a chance against professional athletes? All these questions and more are answered. Also our interview with Laurel seems to have made waves in the Twitterverse. But hey, those comments were taken out of context.

Star Trek’s Latest Five Year Mission

In 1979 After seeing the world shattering success 20th century Fox had with Star Wars, Paramount studios scrambled to revive the star trek franchise. It seems history is repeating itself yet again as on the heels of Solo the Latest instalment of the Star Wars expanded Universe CBS has contracted Alex Kurtzman to a five-year mission to develop the Star Trek Expanded Universe.

The deal reportedly includes “New Series, Mini-series and other content opportunities” that will expand the Star trek Franchise. The agreement also includes rights to produce other content from Kurtzman and his company, Secret Hideout, who currently produce Hawaii 5-0, Salvation and Instinct. This includes expanding secret hideout’s operations to create other original, non-trek, properties.

This will include the continuation of “Star Trek: Discovery”, which is currently in production on season two. In a fashion that parallels drummers in spinal tap, Alex Kurtzman is also the latest person to be brought on as show runner for the streaming series.

Several shows are currently in some state of development such as: Continue reading Star Trek’s Latest Five Year Mission

Interview: Darrell

Fan-favorite and one of the best players to play the game, Darrell is in the house! We ask the standard questions, but we also had to squeeze in some questions about Sarah Greyson, the Gauntlet Queen and one of my favorite players. Darrell was a super charming and personable guy, and we bought him hot dogs. We’re basically best friends now. This wraps up our interviews from the Challenge Throwdown for the Cause event in Yorkville. Thanks for listening!

Interview: Melinda

Melinda asked us to get a little weird with it, and we did. I think we made her a little uncomfortable, but that’s ok because she did the same to us. Or at least she tried. We haven’t seen Melinda on the show for quite some time, but we were still excited to meet her in person. We had a separate conversation before our interview that I wish we would’ve recorded but alas, this is all you get of the beautiful Melinda.
