We’re having a last minute cancellation of the show this week. We’re getting a lot of snow and Steve has to drive quite a ways to the studio. See you all next week!
Some SF links to hold you over:
This week we the PSFR crew were pleased to be joined by The American Prospect’s Ezra Klein, who discussed his recent call for an end to the filibuster. Ezra also admitted that he still watches Heroes and he says he’s hopeful that the show will start getting better soon. Ezra appears in the second half hour of the show.
Other topics naturally included Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse premiere as well as discussions about the latest BSG and LOST episodes. The stimulus bill was passed, the GOP still doesn’t understand how Twitter works, Judd Gregg’s departure from the Commerce Sec. nomination process is confusing, and Rush Limbaugh is a (unpatriotic) big fat idiot.

What’s with all this 3-D media these days? The PSFR crew discusses this and other important issues this week. The economic stimulus “compromise” is the big story, but the crew also talks LOST and nerdgasses in the extreme over the most recent BSG episode. Dollhouse premieres Friday! w00t! Emily and Bill saw Coraline and talk about it, spoiler-free (hint: it’s good!).
Also, stay tuned for a bonus post featuring links to a bunch of SF/Fantasy stuff we didn’t get to this week.

The title of this episode is a lame reference to the economic stimulus story this week. Ten nerd points to the first listener who correctly guesses the quote’s origin.
OMFG BSG was actually good this week. Even Bill had to grudgingly admit it. Other topics covered include the fate of Blago, Tom Daschel’s confirmation troubles, Bill Kristol’s astounding job security, and some thoughts on Gitmo and all those terrorists who will be walking our streets after it closes. Oh yeah, and LOST is still kicking butt. Enjoy.
