Josh and Scott discuss the best shows from 2017. There is a chance that this year was the best year of television ever. So many great shows to pick from. The focus is on Curb Your Enthusiasm, This is Us and Twin Peaks. We also touch on The Crown, Stranger Things, The Orville, Blackish, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Godless.
Josh & Scott boldly go where listeners wish they wouldn’t: Star Trek. We are devoted Trekies in the Red Room and we invite Bob Canode and John Thorne (Blue Rose Magazine) to put on their Vulcan ears and talk Trek.
Star TrekDiscovery is streaming on the CBS App (the what?) So we assume most listeners haven’t seen the show. We spoil the series and talk all about it. It even breaks into a fun political rant. Lots of laughs and great talk in this hour discussion about Star Trek Discovery.
Remember when we had to wait 20 years between Twin Peaks products? Well its been only 2 months and we another piece of Twin Peaks. Mark Frost has released his new book, The Final Dossier. Mya McBriar joins Scott and Josh as they talk about the book. The answers and the questions those answers brings up.
We also talk about Josh Minton’s recent trip to the locations where Twin Peaks was filmed and we mention Scott’s recent interview with Ray Wise (Leland Palmer) for The Blue Rose Magazine. Then it is all about the Final Dossier. Spoilers are everywhere so only listen if you have read.
Author Mark Altman wrote the first Twin Peaks book that I ever purchased. I guess we can blame him for me spending every dime after that. He wrote Twin Peaks: Behind The Scenes. He went on to cover Star Trek, Buffy and Battlestar Galactica. So you can expect lots of fan talk on this one. We discuss how the first Twin Peaks book came to be, we talk about the new season of Peaks as well as the newest Star Trek Series, Discovery. Mark has interviewed just about everyone and has some great stories. Be sure to pick up his new books. See the links below.
