168. The Osiris Chronicles / The Warlord: Battle for the Galaxy (1998)

This week, we’re heading to the Space Ren Fair of the future to talk 1998’s failed TV pilot The Osiris Chronicles! Directed by Joe Dante with none of the flair he brought to bigger budget work, this wannabe Star Trek stars John Corbett as the very futuristically-named Justin Thorpe, a man trying to rescue his kidnapped sister. We also meet many characters far more interesting than him, including goopy aliens, super cool psychic friends, and old Republicans. What more could you want from a movie?
