Episode 51: Mid-Season Replacements

billsimmon 13 Jan 2009 | : episodes

The PSFR crew was kind of all over the map this week, playing catch-up after having missed last week’s show.

There’s Gaza, the economy, the stimulus debate, the Blagojovich scandal, lots of Senate news, and all sorts of transition stuff. Plus the mid-season SF shows are poised to begin. The crew also discussed Rotten Tomatoes’ list of 10 SF flicks for “the thinking man” as well as which Star Trek show was the worst of the franchise (hint: it’s decidedly not DS9).
