Tanner Reviews Galaxy Quest

220px-Galaxy_Quest_posterOh boy isn’t this one hell of a wild ride. Coming from a guy that loves all things nerdy, one of which being the franchise Star Trek… To see something like Galaxy Quest is truly something spectacular to behold. Parodies are a funny thing.

One team is the Reliable Excavation and Demolition or RED for short and the second is Builders League United or BLU.
