This week, we bid happy retirement to a listener to got the shaft from his employer, then realized he already had enough money to retire. Rob P. has been a longtime listener of both Shat on TV and Shat The Movies, and his film commission is nothing short of stellar.

Boldly going where no Shatter has gone before, Rob chose a movie released in the final week of the ’90s. And though “Galaxy Quest” never broke the top 5 in the box office, it might be the greatest sci-fi parody of all time.

Gene Lyons, Roger Roeper, and Dick Ebert break down the difference between Trekkies and Trekkers, celebrate Galaxy Quest’s outstanding casting, and contemplate the proper approach to sex with aliens.

Rog and Gene also swap tales from Comic-Con, with Gene recounting how he stole from Lou Ferrigno and Rog worshipping Alec Baldwin’s blue-collar roots.

And, of course, we had to imitate Thermians and talk about boobs. Because we’re adults.
