Connoisseurs galaxy-wide recover from their weekend hangover and start talking “Strange New” Trek, Dr. Strange, STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, and other oddities from the worlds of genre entertainment, hi-tech, and weird science in today’s TRANSMISSION from the PGS.

There’s something strange happening this week …

by Mike Bawden

Today is World Tuna Day. Seriously. We can all sit back for a moment and appreciate tuna beyond the can sitting in our pantry. (And, you probably have some in there somewhere since in the US, Americans eat about 1B (billion) pounds of tuna yearly).

Thanks, Charlie.

Imagination Connoisseur, James Wallace, shares this video from the Star Trek Nitpicker and this parody edit of the same episode (from Major Grin) – both questioning yet more questionable plotting by the writing team behind ‘Star Trek: Picard’ … tell us what you think.

PGS Member Donny Pearson shares the breaking news about Adrian Holmes’s casting as Robert April in ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ – yet many people still seem upset and dismayed by the decision. Join in the conversation and let folks know where you stand.

Donny also shared a video from Trekyards expressing disappointment with how this latest season of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ has played out.

According to this post from Imagination Connoisseur, Daniel Coyle, it looks like ‘Dr. Who’ will be going through a second re-boot … or is it a second re-boot?

Long-time PGS raconteur, S’wak Props, warns his fellow connoisseurs that there are now leaked photos from DR. STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS floating around the Interwebs right now. So be careful where you click to avoid potential spoilers (or fakes).

File this one under “Guilty Pleasures” … Imagination Connoisseur Tommy Mårtensson confesses his love of the live-action, SUPER MARIO BROTHERS movie. It’s okay, Tommy, we all have things we love for apparently no good reason. Share your guilty pleasure on Tommy’s post.

Think you’re a movie buff? Take this Universal Pictures Challenge posted by PGS Member, R.J. Robinson. I’ve seen 43, post your score on the discussion thread.

The campaign has begun to get Alexandra Daddario cast as Zatanna in a live-action movie set in the DCEU. Thanks to Imagination Connoisseur Mitchell Hodack for sharing the post. What do you think? Would she be a good choice?

OG Mary Jane, Kirsten Dunst, turned 40 this weekend, and Gal Gadot turned 37.

The color of terror.

Imagination Connoisseur, Tommy Mårtensson, shares his thoughts on the 2019 horror film, COLOR OUT OF SPACE, directed by Richard Stanley. During a time when there are so many remakes and reboots, it’s nice to see something uniquely horrifying hit the theaters.
