We're back! We have been MIA for a few weeks and have now returned to cover some great entertainment. Believe it or not, The 'Verse! squad has completed 100 standard full-length episodes. In addition, they have nearly 20 interview episodes which include conversations with many very talented (and cool) industry pros, the cast of The Boys, top showrunners, composers, writers, VFX teams, and more. It has been an exceptional run where we have not just discussed the best of TV and film, but also met some unique new friends along the way - robots, aliens, sentient doors, and more.
If you have not listened yet we recommend you do. The 'Verse! covers many of the cinematic universes through in-depth reviews, previews, games and more. In addition, we explore those universes on our very own spaceship (to be named later) which often leads to us hosting exciting new visitors.
You can think of it as a mix of Comic Con, Siskel & Ebert, MST3K, and Pee-Wee's Playhouse. While the show can often take some wacky tangents, the heart of The 'Verse! is our 4 hosts (Bridget, Norm, Emilia, and Lucas) who have passionate and entertaining discussions about a wide variety of franchise universes spanning Marvel, Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Boys, and much more. Give episode #100 a listen, and then for the fullest, most rewarding experience start from the beginning to hear how the show has evolved and grown.
Let's get back to great entertainment, for this episode let's just say, this was…um... not it. The squad begrudgingly finishes covering Marvel’s Secret Invasion with episodes 4-6. (We came back from our summer hiatus for this??) We tried to love it, we really did. To be fair, we look forward to seeing Nick Fury in anything else going forward and congratulate the cast of Secret Invasion for doing the most they could with this show. (Oh yeah, speaking of summer hiatus, there's a story about it in the episode which you will want to hear.)
On a much brighter note, we cover episodes 5 and 6 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, inching ever closer to both the Lower Decks crossover episode and the musical episode (both covered in the soon to arrive episode 101. This show has continued to impress old and new Star Trek fans alike. Tune in to hear perspectives from Trek veterans and fresh-faced cadets alike!

Oh yeah, if you stick around after the credits we always have a post credit scene or two. This time around it revolves around the return of a friend or two... or is it too? or is it one? Either way you will want to listen.
