The Pop Show #23: Game Of Thrones, Ghostbusters, Star Trek and more


Yeah, so, I am the champion the new “Ghostbusters” reboot in this week’s Pop Show podcast for Assignment X.


I have talked this before, but I got even more worked up this time, because I’m so over the hatred and misogyny directed at this remake. Seriously, grow up, babies! I don’t even know what to say about these sexist assholes who claim to hate a movie they haven’t even seen because they are “just tired of remakes,” but are totally fine with reboot after reboot of superhero movies, and haven’t said jackshit about “The Magnificent Seven” remake. These whiny crybabies, who can’t stand that the new “Ghostbusters” movie isn’t based on their fanfiction, are drowning out the more interesting conversion about the state of remakes and what about the trailers for “Ghostbusters” works and doesn’t work.

Anyway … Don’t trip on my soapbox.

Also, in this podcast:

  • We have a really great discussion about this season of “Game Of Thrones,” including last night’s episode. Serious spoilers if you haven’t watched it yet. Consider yourself warned.
  • I bust out my truly awful Trump impression again, because I’ll do anything to get people to listen to our podcast.
  • We boldly go where we have gone before, and talk about the new “Star Trek Beyond” trailer that dropped last week.

You can listen to the podcast on Assignment X, and you can find us on iTunes riiight here.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  2. I was totally leery of the remake until I finally saw the trailer the other day. Mainly because I had no idea outside of Melissa McCarthy who was going to be in the film. I now have a feeling it’s going to be a funny, cheesy movie much like the originals so I will probably see it. Plus there’s a nerdy looking Helmsworth in it so even if it’s not that great there’s that. 🙂
