Episode 40: Star Trek: The Motion Picture
The podcast ventures where it never has before: the Star Trek franchise, as Bob Chipman and Tim spend long periods staring at their viewscreen and watching Star Trek: The Motion Picture from 1979. The resulting discussion touches on the soporific reputation of the movie, the treatment of religion in the Star Trek series, and why you shouldn't replace the chemistry of a good cast with special effects. Warning: Contains explicit language and spoilers but alas... no Corinne (the movie put her to sleep).
