The wormhole is always going to reopen when you least expect it! And here we are, on Friday the 13th… RTW is taking a look at yet another important franchise reboot movie from 2009 that is in some way related to Star Trek - although the relation in this case is a little less obvious. In 2009’s Friday the 13th reboot, Nana Visitor, our very own Kira Nerys, plays the iconic role of Pamela Voorhees, mother of the famous Jason… for all of about 90 seconds. What ensues after that is a fairly standard Jason movie, with some good scares, dopey characters, and people dying horribly. The RTW crew reveals the depth of their Jason fandom in this upsettingly long episode, talking about everything from the Weed Hick to classic(?) PS3 game Heavy Rain to their history with horror and Jason movies, along with all the RTW features you’ve come to know and love, and, as the alcohol and the lateness slowly takes a hold of them, they cap it off by ranking all of the Friday the 13th movies from best to worst. And of course, when Rappin’ Jake fails to step up to the plate for this movie, Sam, Kevin, and Jack are up to the task for a replacement rap. There’s a lotta JASON? JASON! love to go around here, and a lot of nerdy pals making nerdy references to nerdy stuff. Basically what you’d expect from a 3-hour episode of a Star Trek podcast about a Jason movie… I guess…
