A Private Little War – Star Trek ToS S2E19

Kevin and Jon are discussing the controversial “A Private Little War.” Captain Kirk makes the questionable choice to arm a group to even the balance of the war. This episode reflects the times and the Vietnam War. 

Synopsis:

Kirk’s reunion with an old friend on the planet Neural is overshadowed by a threat from the Klingons, which leaves the Captain contemplating a breach of Starfleet’s standing order of non-intervention in order to help a beleaguered race.

Power Rangers and Grand Theft Auto

Andor’s first three episodes were released this week. This spy thriller shows viewers the darker corners of the Star Wars galaxy. 

A recent Power Rangers leak reveals Netflix’s plans to build a new cinematic universe out of the iconic franchise.

Rockstar also had a significant leak, showing unfinished footage of GTA 6. The gaming world unites to defend Rockstar after a slew of negative reactions.

Lastly, we discuss the rising issue of gambling on Twitch. After a streamer revealed their struggles, the community demanded Twitch takes action to stop the gambling trend. 

Power Rangers Leaks Shows Netflix’s Bluprints

Netflix’s Power Rangers has a few new leaks that give us a bigger picture of the franchise’s reboot. These leaks come from Jinsakuu of Twitter and are echoed by more reputable sources like CBR

Here’s what we are hearing:

  • The same team will be in the new movie and the follow-up series
  • The same mature tone we see in the 2017 movie
  • Completely new team and name, but Zardon and Alpha are likely to return
  • Zord battles will be saved for big moments
  • Serialized series instead of “monster of the week”
  • Netflix is trying to bring back much of the original cast for supporting roles

A serialized series makes sense for Netflix and this team. It will likely feel like The Witcher; new issues arrive each episode but the primary story is a season-long arch. Jonathan Entwistle has tapped Jenny Klien to help build this new Power Rangers Cinematic Universe. Jenny previously work on Jessica Jones and The Witcher. We also see some Cobra Kai philosophy at play. They are establishing a new generation of a popular franchise while backing them up with old favorites. The new Power Rangers has a lot of Netflix DNA. With the streaming service struggling lately, these crowd-pleasing shows may be key to regaining their lost ground. 

Twitch Faces Its Gambling Problem as Streamers Take a Stance

Streamer Abraham “Sliker” Mohammed

The past week has been a roller coaster for Twitch and its gambling community. Let’s briefly break down the timeline.

Streamer Sliker admitted on his stream that he had a gambling addiction betting on CS:GO games. Furthermore, he had solicited $200,000 from the Twitch community under false pretenses to fund his gambling problems.

The Sunday after Sliker’s reveal, major streamers like Imane “Pokiman” Anys, Mathew “Mizkif” Rinaudo, and Devin Nash united to discuss the gambling issue on Twitch. Some of the concerns were the access it provides to its young audience and the “cheapening” of the site in the eyes of legitimate advertisers. Eventually, the idea of a week-long Twitch ban over Christman week was seen as a real option.

On Tuesday, Twitch tweeted out a statement with new gambling rules. In short, they would not allow slots, roulette, or dice games not sanctioned and protected by local governments. Twitch also explained they will be expanding their new gambling rules over the next few weeks. One issue with Twitch’s new stance is it exempts “websites that focus on sports betting, fantasy sports, and poker.” Sliker’s addiction involved sports betting.

There is much more to discuss on this issue, including the world of gambling streamers, Twitch’s stakes in the practice, and the lack of standards across the industry as a whole. For more information, check out Arstechnica and Kotaku‘s articles on the subject.

Quickfire Review Part 3

Hey all! New season, a new set of Quickfire Reviews! What are some games that deserve a better review? Were there any you completely agree with? Let us know!

GTA 6 Leak and Rockstar’s Response

Rockstar suffered a major hack and a lot of GTA 6 was leaked. Hacker Teapot, who recently hacked Uber, breached Rockstar and stole the source code for GTA 5 and 6 plus over 3GB of internal footage from GTA 6.
The newest installment of Grand Theft Auto has been in the works for roughly 10 years and still has a couple more before release. The leaked source code is devastating. Teapot is apparently in talks with Rockstar to pay a ransom and get their source code back. As for GTA 5, Teapot is selling to the highest bidder. The successful game should fetch a high price.


Rockstar has feverishly demanded the removal of all leaked footage from YouTube and alike, making it difficult to share the content. From what we’ve seen, there are two protagonists, one being the franchise’s first woman. GTA 6 will take place in Vice City in the modern day. Many of the classic brands are back, like GTA’s social media parody Life Invader. The leaked game is not complete with a mix of finished and work-in-progress NPCs and cars.


Rockstar released a statement this morning admitting they were attacked. They state the breach will not disrupt development and live services.

As more developments are revealed, we’ll keep you updated.

A Return to the Karate Kid Movie Franchise

Keanu Reeves will reprise his role as John Constine. A warlock, detective, and general magical expert has run-ins with heaven and hell. In the 2005 film, he saves his soul by sacrificing himself. Death and damnation will not stop Constantine from fighting for the underdogs and keeping the powers balanced.
