From Soulless Minions:
My regular co-host was out of the studio on this one but thankfully I was joined by two very special guests and fellow fan commentators–of .com (http://www.tysto.com/) and John of SofaDogs.com (http://www.sofadogs.libsyn.com/)–for this commentary on the 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest. You don’t have to be a fan sci-fi to dig this movie because it’s appeal is universal.
There’s comedy, drama, suspense, explosions, spaceships, and really cool looking aliens. This movie has everything. It’s a treat to behold. It really is.
Which make me wonder…
Why doesn’t this movie have a sequel?
It’s an all-star commentary with myself, John ofand Josh of ! We love the film, the cast, Star Trek, and pretty much everything else, so join us for the fun! We analyze the Trek and other sci-fi references, the careful setup and payoff of the screenplay, and how the effects hold up even from yea-back in 1999. John talks about his Brush With Shatner, Josh brings the hardcore Trek nerdery, and I invent the word “blusterbuss” ™.
Note: We get a tad explicit here and there, particularly when talking about censoring done to get the movie a PG rating.

Plot Summary: The cast of a cult, space TV show have to play their roles as the real thing when an alien race needs their help.
Note: It’s a trifecta of geeky, commentary lunacy when Tysto,and one half of the join forces to discuss the delightful gem from 1999 known as Galaxy Quest! We discuss science fiction film and television, Star Wars versus Star Trek, nerd loyalties and the ageless wonder herself, Sigourney Weaver. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the movie on your DVD.
