Put on your bell-bottom pants and get your bowl haircuts as the boys of TRF discuss the early days of Star Wars that they remember. Along the way, they chat about action figures and Dana wishes upon a star for a sci-fi film to win Best Picture.
Hi folks, De here. Thanks to Matt for pinch hitting and editing this longer-than-normal episode while I was away dealing with Life, the Universe, and Everything Else. Dana and Matt recorded this episode without me, so I’m not sure what’s in it. Enjoy this Mystery Meat episode and we’ll see you next time!
Oh yeah, beware of possible profanity–you’ll find this one marked as Explicit.
As the summer winds to a close, the convention season seems to be heating up. The TRF Crew discusses the San Diego Comic-Con, as well as the Shore Leave science fiction convention, with a tangent or 12 along the way. One particular tangent of note concerns the comprehension-challenged nerd rage over the announcements Marvel made regarding Thor and Captain America.
Another out-of-sequence episode! This episode was recorded after July 4, which explains Dana’s obsession with 1776. The TRF crew takes the time out to read listener mail. If you posted to either Facebook or the website, there’s a good chance it’s discussed in this episode.
Some of the stuff covered are: Batgirl’s new costume, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Wicked and the Divine, the upcoming Shannara TV series, music, free hugs, Marvel movies and TV, Defiance, Dana and De’s acting careers, websites regularly trafficked, the new Harry Potter story, and sequel talk.
This episode is a bit of a departure from our normal routine as De and Dana (Matt was busy shaping the youth of tomorrow) open up a vintage 1977 Mego Batman’s Wayne Foundation Playset and attempt to assemble it without the benefit of an instruction sheet.
Photos from our grand experiment are forthcoming!

With Matt under the weather, he was unable to take part in the festivities surrounding Dana’s new car! Among the smorgasbord of topics Dana and De chat about are Power Lords action figures, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, modern-day oddities of going to the movies, and National Treasure 2: The Book of Secrets. We close with a rant by Dana regarding the idiocy of some Doctor Who fans over stealing episodes prior to air.
The TRF crew returns with a discussion about Pacific Rim, which leads to another chat about our experiences with anime and manga with a brief stop in The Matrix.
Hope everyone had a fun and safe Independence Day! Totally Random Fandom is back with a discussion of the Stargate franchise, including the film creators’ plans to reboot it into a trilogy of films. In the news section, it’s a bit of Marvel news as we chat about Josh Brolin’s role of Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy and the Winter Soldier DVD/Blu-ray release, which leads to a discussion of digital distribution, Net Neutrality, and the state of physical media.
Stick around for the end where the TRF lads will serenade you

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray Details
It’s been well over a month and all three of the TRF Crew finally got around to seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier! It should be no surprise that this podcast is full of spoilers! Work efforts have begun to ratchet up again for De so this episode is not as smooth as most. Chances are you’ll hear many a verbal crutch and perhaps some profanity. Please don’t hold it against us
De returns for this episode where we chat about general geekery before diving into some news. News for this week includes more Star Wars movies, Sad Batman, and nuTrek’s new director. The mailbag features some new commenters asking the TRF Crew about their “solo space mission” entertainment picks, go-tos on bad days, and a query about the new TV show, Gotham.
