Will Daniel Jackson’s supposition that the gate may be part of a vast network across the universe turn out to be true? Time will tell.

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of NBC Peacock’s Brave New World, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss John and Lenina’s trip aboard the Epsilon train and her continued attempt to find another side of herself. Wayne points out the fight between John and Bernard does more to enhance Bernie’s street cred and a “Marx” may soon supplant the “Foster.” Do the writers focus too much on the sexual aspect of life in New London, and who are The 10? However, it’s the notion that we may be watching a simulation raises the most questions.
