Needless Things Podcast 180 – Star Trek: Discovery


The Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to watch Star Trek: Discovery!

Discovery is the newest entry into the mighty Star Trek franchise, and one that CBS is hoping will lure customers to subscribe to their proprietary streaming service. Basically nobody is happy about that, and it's possible that before too much longer CBS isn't going to be happy about it, either. But that's neither here nor there.

In today's episode, the Commentary team is joined by Mike Gordon, Gary Mitchel, and Monica Moniker to watch the premiere episode of Discovery and provide pre- and post-show thoughts.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, Rad Ranger, and the rest react to Star Trek: Discovery - “Vulcan Hello”!

Needless Things Podcast 162 – Alien: Covenant

In the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast Phantom Troublemaker, Mike Gordon, and Ryan Cadaver talk LIVE in the Phantom Zone about Ridley Scott’s newest outer space epic!
There’s been a whole lotta aliens goin’ on lately around Needless Things, and there’s no better way to put a lid on it (for now) than with a discussion about the newest entry in the franchise, Alien: Covenant. Claiming to be both a follow-up to the divisive Prometheus and a prequel to the classic Alien, Covenant had a weighty task to accomplish. Find out if Scott and company delivered a satisfying film that connected his other works or if this new movie goes off the rails into the cinematic dumpster!
Listen in as Phantom, Ryan, and Mike discuss the finer points of genetic engineering, PLUS and preamble about the recently released trailer for Star Trek: Discovery!

Needless Things Podcast Episode 50 – Leonard Nimoy

In what was supposed to be the start of an ongoing series of episodes focusing on Star Trek, Phantom and Gary Mitchel end up discussing one of the great heroes of science fiction – Leonard Nimoy.
Over a month ago Phantom Troublemaker and Gary Mitchel had agreed to start a secondary podcast – a subcast, if you will, with just the two of them talking about the Trek franchise. The first episode was scheduled to record on Monday, March 2, 2015. Sadly, on the Friday prior to that recording, Leonard Nimoy passed away.
Obviously there was no other decision than to dedicate a show to memories of Mr. Nimoy and his legacy. As such, there's no intro, no musical feature, and no outro. Just Phantom and Gary talking about a legend.
