'Star Trek: Discovery'—Where No Streaming App Has Gone Before? (Podcast)


Why create a blockbuster new show and then hide it away where nobody will ever watch it?

Rick Mathieson and Rick Wootten assess the first episode of "Star Trek: Discovery," the first new show developed for CBS All Access, a kind of Netflix dedicated exclusively to CBS properties.

It must have seemed like a great idea at the time—create a show with a built in, hardcore fan base to draw new viewers to this new app. But is it enough to pull in the Ricktators, both lifelong Trek fans?

The first episode is solid, the 15-episode first season surely enjoyable, and a second season has already been greenlit.

Yet the Ricks have yet to watch another episode.

See what they have to say about the show and the legacy of Trek. Then let us know your own thoughts about "Star Trek: Discovery" and CBS All access.

Rick & Rick—Peak Pumpkin Spice
What hath Starbucks spawned?

The ever-popular coffeehouse chain scores a seasonal hit with its Pumpkin Spice Lattes and now every brand and its mother has to have its own pumpkin spice something. Anything. It doesn't even seem to matter what it is.

Rick Mathieson and Rick Wootten aren't having any of it. And when they audit some of the ridiculous products brands are offering this year just to jump on the pumpkin spice bandwagon, you're not going to believe what they found. But fair warning: Its not for sensitive stomachs.
