To finish off Geek Speak's Thanksgiving feast, the gang offers up a serving of Star Wars and Star Trek. First, director Bradley Weatherholt comes on to talk about his documentary, The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan's Journey. It's a documentary about Bradley's quest to find out out once and for all: Are the Star Wars Prequels as bad as fans say they are or are they (and George Lucas) simply misunderstood?
2016 was Star Trek's 50th Anniversary, but unless you were a die-hard fan, you hardly noticed. Well, The Geek Speak Show did and on Star Trek TOS's actual 50th anniversary date (September 8th), Rod Roddenberry (Gene Roddenberry's son and CEO of Roddenberry Entertainment) joined Henry to talk about Star Trek 50 years after its launch, how he was introduced to Star Trek, why he thinks Star Trek has endured for 50 years, and what's coming to Star Trek: Discovery next year. (Rod is on the creative team for the new Star Trek series, in case you didn't know.)
To close off this year's Thanksgiving episode, Miguel, Gabby, and MTR talk about what they're thankful for on this holiday.
The Geek Speak Show is on break and will return for the last two episodes of 2016 on December 7th.
