Stay Cool, Geek 158: The Arrival of Space Travel

In which Kurt and two guest hosts discuss the film Arrival... why it was so successful and what this says about Hollywood's embracement of plausible intelligent life. 

The guys also discuss how Halo imitated Alien, whether or not Frasier deserves a lower grade due to pandering dog, and if they believe aliens exist. Other random topics include The Last Starfighter, The Martian, Bug, Signs, Shia Labeouf, and whether or not The Force Awakens was A New Hope clone.

Despite all this pop culture nerdiness, the guys actually try to ponder some of the concepts alluded to in Arrival. What is time? How we would react as a society if aliens visited? Would we alter our free will if we knew painful moments were bound to happen? Or would you choose to celebrate the times of happiness first?
