Jake brings back fellow Geek Out co-host Sam to discuss Kiss' 1979 comeback album after taking a year to work on their own solo projects.

It also marked the true beginning of the end for the band's classic lineup as years of hard partying and internal strife began to catch up with them. Listen as the boys go track-by-track to discuss Dynasty!

The celebration of 50 years of Star Trek continues as the gang rounds out The Next Generation's adventures on the big screen with a commentary for Star Trek: Nemesis.
