    From The Poufwa Exchange:

    Episode 22 of the Poufwa Exchange has been released!

    Join Jen1, Aaron, Sue and me for our commentary of JJ Abrams’ Star Trek !

    A cataclysm over 150 years into the future throws two ships into the 23rd century, altering the course of history. With a different life where he never knew his father, James T. Kirk becomes a brilliant yet cynical misfit who is finally convinced to join Starfleet by Captain Christopher Pike in 2255. Three years later, Kirk, Spock and the young crew of the USS Enterprise, with guidance from Spock’s future self, must figure out a way to work together to prevent the one responsible for the death of Kirk’s father, the future Romulan known as Nero, from wreaking destruction throughout the Federation in a mad quest for vengeance, using a powerful new weapon. For some, their help comes too late.

    Happy listening!


    The freaking teeny-boppers who are friends with me on Facebook are all like ‘Going to see Star Trek again.’ When did Star Trek become socially acceptable? Because— When really hot guys got cast as Kirk and Spock. — Poufwa Exchange,

    That right there is depressing—that that Nokia tone is going to outlast us all. [laughter] That is a little bit depressing. — Poufwa Exchange,

    [Kobayashi Maru exercise, as Kirk] ‘Red blinky guns to full power. Blue blinky guns stand by in case we run out of red blinky guns.’ [laughter] [re: apple] ‘Is there a trash can in here?’ — Poufwa Exchange,

    [water tube scene] Oh my god. This is too Willie Wonka. Come on! [laughter] … It’s like the chompers from Galaxy Quest. ‘This episode was badly written!’ — Poufwa Exchange,

    [female voices, re: Spock and Kirk] Gosh, they even stalk alike. That is hot. Yeah. … I love that they’re the same height. They could seriously get it on. — Poufwa Exchange,
