 Episode 117: Spacedoor: Disappointment (Stargate Origins: Catherine) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2502

Dr. Langford I presume? We explore the latest entry in the Stargate franchise. Does nostalgia ruin the new hotness?

 Episode 116: Can't We Just Get Beyond Beyond? (Doors) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2439

Vignettes or anthology? A series of "shorter films" make up this sci-fi movie that opens the door on what might happen if aliens visit. Different perspectives and choices frame the plot(s) and characters. Open up and let the aliens in!

 Episode 115: Familiar Old Planets (Star Trek: Strange New Worlds) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2932

We've been here before, but not here. Strange New Worlds takes us back to the past again with Christopher Pike in the captain's seat. Can this new show carry the spirit of Star Trek forward?

 Episode 114: Crash Override (Debug) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1990

David Hewlett reunites with Jason Mamoa to bring this well dressed horror b-movie to life. Being stranded on a prison ship lost in space can drive any AI crazy right? When you die in VR do you become a program?

 Episode 113: The War of Tomorrow (The Adam Project) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2343

Ryan Reynolds and half of the MCU unite in this semi-feel good/semi-terrifying look into the past of the future. Time travel is bad, okay?

 Episode 112: Battle of the Planets (Alien Conquest) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2175

We continue our tour of the old masters of sci-fi with this interpretation of War of the Worlds. Never thought we'd miss Tom Cruise.

 Episode 111: Nothing Goes According to Plan...Again (Beyond White Space) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2267

Moby Dick meets Event Horizon with a pinch of cyberpunk in this Ahab-lite indie film. The Sci-Fi Wise Guys hopefully do a better job of catching the plot than this ship of misfits does catching a space dragon.

 Episode 110: Kaiju Movie Thing (ZillaFoot) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2266

Homage or home movie? Zillafoot gives a glimpse into the films and film making "techniques" of the old Kaiju movies from Japan.

 Episode 109: War Crimes and Bar Fights (Steampunk Short Films) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3290

Our short films finale is at hand! Steampunk and...kinda steampunk round out our theme! Interesting effects, camera angles, and acting! German and Finnish rule both the skies and the crime underworld!

 Episode 108: Doug Jones Appreciation Podcast (Chaisson: Quest for Oriud) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2450

Names you can't pronounce, bad acting, "charred" forests, and a masked Doug Jones make for a confusing journey in this student film sequel.

 Episode 107: Barely a Theme (Robot Short Films) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2424

All aboard the short film train! Next stop, robots! We discuss effects, ethics, and...robots!

 Episode 106: No Violence (Aliens Night 1 &2) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2614

Actions speak louder than words in this double header of alien abduction short films from Italian filmmaker Andrea Ricca! What would you do if the greys visited your home? Do they come in peace? Do you?

 Episode 105: Unrealized Childhood Expectations (The Book of Boba Fett) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2380

Is this a book worth reading? Certain chapters seemed to be pulled from other works, but the Western-style influences have never been more prevalent in this anti-hero's tale of loss and "redemption".

 Episode 104: Not Sponsored by Apple (See Pilot) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2401

Jason Mamoa stars in another show that lets him show off his acting and action skills. In the land of the blind, the sighted person is king? We debate interior decoration and enhanced senses when the blind lead the blind.

 Episode 103: Relationship Advice (Invasion Pilot) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2750

Invasion's pilot episode gives us an inside look at various people's lives before an alien invasion. Does this episode do enough to hook us into this new Apple TV+ show? Join the Sci-Fi Wise Guys as we determine the best way to confront your spouse.
