TRF returns from its involuntary hiatus on a less than pleasant note–the passing of Leonard Nimoy. In this episode, we talk about Leonard’s career, his legacy, and share some of our favorite moments.
Thank you for your patience during our time away. We look forward to spending much more time with you in 2015.

This episode was the first recorded after the involuntary hiatus. We mainly cover the Marvel movie slate with a smattering of Big Hero 6, Shatterdome Con, and the upcoming 2015 G.I. Joe Convention. Of course, it would be TRF without a dozen or so tangents along the way.
Thanks for listening and we hope you all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday!
Episode 50 – Asleep at the Wheel
After several bouts with life, the TRF Crew returns with an all-new episode! The Boys of TRF pile into Dana’s car for a little toy hunting road trip and chat about a number of random things along the way. Will they find the elusive Boba the White?
Episode 49 – Road Trip
TRF returns with a recap of Dana’s adventures at Baltimore Comic Con. De talks about his exciting week off and Matt dishes on his madcap escapades!
Episode 48 – Spite Art
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.
Episode 47 – A Long Time Ago…
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.
Episode 46 – Mystery Meat
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.

Episode 45 – Sandy Eggo
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.
