Anomaly: Sci-Fi / Fantasy Geek Chats
Fun, conversational episodes since 2007 on Sci-fi / Fantasy and geek culture. We cover: fan conventions, sci fi fantasy TV, book, movies and more. In addition to the 50 episodes available here, you'll find many, many more at anomalypodcast.com.

The ultimate woe, the epitome of nerd rage, the most taboo of all topics is the very one that Angela and Jen set forth to conquer in this episode: Star Wars or Star Trek. Join us as we bring back this golden oldie from the Anomaly vault all the way back in 2011 where Jen and Angela approached this age-old question, not from a ‘which franchise is better’ standpoint, but instead, they looked within and asked what the preference of one franchise over the other says about a person.

So...which do you prefer and why?

Did you love Wonder Woman or REALLY LOVE Wonder Woman? Angela and Jen discuss how expectations were met for a character they have been waiting to see on the big screen for almost 40 years!

After all this time we finally get a big budget - silver screen version of Wonder Woman. Is it worth seeing multiple times in the theater or should you wait for the TNT premier in 2019?

In this episode, Jen and Angela return with a tribute to Carrie Fisher—a woman who was the ultimate Anomaly and someone they held a ton of respect for. They waited for a month to talk about her passing on Anomaly, because, quite frankly, the two of them couldn't record an episode without getting choked up. After they had time to digest what happened, reflect on why she meant so much to them, and re-watch her films and the Bright Lights documentary, they gave it another try.

SPOILER ALERT!!! Jen and Angela, Joe and Chris (Jen's co-hosts from The Star Wars Stacks), and Rico from Treks in Sci-Fi all had a "certain point of view" regarding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and so this episode of Anomaly was rather spirited at times. They all liked the film, but they each had a different take on the Star Wars story's execution and plot. From the use of CGI and the dark nature of the script to the EU nods and cameo appearances, just about everything was touched on in this chat. Make sure you watch the movie first...we spoil everything.

In this final episode of Anomaly Supplemental, KC and Sue give our recommendations, list off some of the topics we never got around to, and discuss the 2008 sensation: Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. As usual, we talk about our favorite parts, dig up some trivia, and go on several tangents.

This might be the last Anomaly Supplemental, but don’t worry – we won’t disappear. There is a new project in the works. In the meantime, you can follow KC on Twitter (@ThatKCRyan), follow Sue (@spaltor) on Twitter, and hear Sue on Women at Warp (womenatwarp.com).

Special thanks - for this episode and for the show as a whole - go out to Marian Call, Rick Moyer, Simon Meddings, Jen, Angela, Sarah, Anne, and everyone who’s supported us over the last 5 years.
