It’s Memorial Day weekend, and everyone’s busy, so I’m posting this episode of a one-episode show I did with Bryce (Eloysius) from Taverncast back in 2010.

We did a live commentary on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan – Director’s Cut.

The show was the first in a series that never got off the ground.

I hope you all enjoy and see you all next week.
