April 7th, 2011 by Scott

Jason, one of our listeners, starts off this listener feedback show with a question that is sure to spark debate: how do you feel about “big named” actors/actresses in SciFi/Superhero movies? We push out the question a little, but are saving our thoughts for the next response show. We hear your thoughts on 17th Precinct, SGU, Fringe, Battle LA, The Event, Wonder Woman’s new outfit, and our Matrix rewatch.
