We discuss the news of the week. Rumours that David Harbour (Stranger Things) is up for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. Neil Gaiman signs a “first-look” deal with Freemantle Entertainment. The sudden passing of actor Bill Paxton of Aliens, Twister, True Lies, Near Dark and Frailty.
Our review of Logan starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart & Dafne Keen. Synopsis: It’s 2029. Mutants are gone—or very nearly so. An isolated, despondent Logan is drinking his days away in a hideout on a remote stretch of the Mexican border, picking up petty cash as a driver for hire. His companions in exile are the outcast Caliban and an ailing Professor X, whose singular mind is plagued by worsening seizures. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy abruptly end when a mysterious woman appears with an urgent request—that Logan shepherd an extraordinary young girl to safety. Soon, the claws come out as Logan must face off against dark forces and a villain from his own past on a live-or-die mission, one that will set the time-worn warrior on a path toward fulfilling his destiny.
We also talk in studio with Jamillah Ross & Danielle Cole of The Dandies, a Toronto based Star Trek themed improv troupe. Also joining us by phone will be Dale Wells, a good friend of the show and one of the founding members of The Dandies. The Dandies will be beaming down to the Toronto ComiCon (Metro Toronto Convention Centre – March 17th to 19th) to put on a few shows (two Trek focused and one based on Superheroes). The Dandies were formed by Andie Leathley and Dale Wells in 2010. Their flagship show is Holodeck Follies, a monthly improvised Star Trek comedy and variety show, created in 2012. The Dandies were nominated as Best Improv Troupe in Now Toronto’s Reader’s Choice award (2015, 2014).
It was a great show!
