A shameless love letter to war disguised as a sci-fi film, Starship Troopers follows the romantic story of Johnny Rico, a teenager who attempts to keep the affection of his high school sweetheart by enlisting in a future army whose mission is to fight space bugs capable of pooping acid missiles into the end, it turns out that it war was Johnny's true love all along.

Jericho Thorp (Midnight Society) joins the podcast in our longest and likely nerdiest episode thus far to dig deeper into Starship Troopers' conflicted propaganda, wasted opportunity to kill off a Busey character, and much this movie kinda kicks ass.

Lance Gilstrap (Movie Riot, Midnight Society) joins us to breakdown the many questionable aspects of this movie from its special effects laden second half to a theory that the film takes place in the mind of Cheech Marin.
