This week we swing back to 1982 in the time machine with Special Guest Will Noye to catch one of our nerdy, sad favourites: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.  We ponder many aspects, chiefly why Spock didn't use tongs or something.  Regular ep next week.

This week Meg Mackay fell off the time machine again, landing somewhere in Victorian England, presumably on a pile of poor children, but worry not as I swung back and got Guest Meg Amanda Day to swing back to 1930 to watch it's highest grossing movie: All Quiet on the Western Front!  We talk about fancy innovations like exploding airships and flying cows and go over a sombre, reflective, profound meditation on war... blockbuster?  The Past is weird guys, with Special guest Craig Fay!

This week we engage the sadness Matrix and fly to 1970 fueled only by special guest's Dean Young's tears to look around and check out its big gross movie: Love Story.  We discuss the end of the seventies, Kent State, More Nixon and go over perhaps the worst excuse for a love story ever produced, the inexplicably dumb Love Story.

This week we make meatballs in the Time machine's new crock-pot based reactor and head back to 1955 to have a look about and watch it's Big Gross Movie: Lady and the Tramp!  We discuss the Warsaw pact, the horrible racism of... everything and then settle in to watch an entitled rich lady meet a roguish tramp and act baffled when he turns out to sleep around a lot, with special guest Ryan Dillon!
