The countdown to Star Trek Beyond and celebration of 50 years of Star Trek continues with the commentary for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Commissioned as a 25th anniversary celebration of the venerable science fiction franchise (Has it been 25 years since this film came out already?), the sixth Star Trek film proved to be the final adventure for the entire original crew and served as an allegory for the end of the Cold War from which the series was originally conceived...but what do the boys think of it now a quarter of a century later? Watch along and listen to find out!

Now with a title that Sam and Jake are a bit more satisfied with! This time around, the duo go track-by-track over the Fab Four's follow-up to Sgt. Pepper's, Magical Mystery Tour. The band's ninth studio album served as the soundtrack to a self-produced television film that received the first universally negative reviews of anything the band had done so far...but how does the music itself hold up? Listen as Sam and Jake discuss Magical Mystery Tour from start to finish and what they consider one of the more melancholy Beatles' albums despite its enchanting title!
