Welcome to On The Verge, our little zeitgeist for the culture of now. We've got a very fun film-themed show today, including a lively in-studio chat with Paul Feig, the creator of Freaks and Geeks and director of Bridesmaids and The Heat. Before that, Josh sits down with acting icon Lance Reddick about his roles in The Wire, Fringe, White House Down (as well as his thoughts on William Shatner and early Star Trek). Before that, a certain special 1985 science fiction epic and the reasons you should give it a shot. Stay a while, watch.
