Episode Discussed: Roughnecks S01E01
 

Dustin returns to host yet another bonus episode, this time about a show that is only vaguely related to anime: "Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles." He is joined by cohosts Eric and Jules to discuss the history and cultural significance of the Starship Troopers franchise, the troubled production of the show, and whether or not Roughnecks still holds up to our modern day standards.

Other topics include: war is hell, the maturation of children's programming, prejudice against psychics, scary plastic-people CGI, the importance of sound design, battle-hardened soldiers using PG curse words, and discovering which of the three hosts is the biggest Enya fan.
