Episode 1 Fact Check:

Show clarifications and corrections by @JPKnews

12:48 – There were 5 original Planet of the Apes films, not 4.
13:17 – The Planet of the Apes TV show ran for just 14 episodes in 1974.
13:26 – Battlestar Galactica premiered in 1978 – post-Star Wars, but pre-Star Trek: The Motion Picture – and lasted for one season. It was followed by Galactica 1980, which premiered in (you guessed it!) 1980 and lasted just 10 episodes.
13:42 – Lorne Greene, pride of Ottawa, was Ben Cartwright on Bonanza from 1959 to 1973 before starring in Battlestar Galactica.
14:00 – Patrick Stewart played Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film franchise, not Dr. X.
16:29 – Patricia Quinn, who played Magenta and Nell Campbell, who played Columbia, in The Rocky Horror Picture Show were guests at Fan Expo Canada 2017.
17:28 – A head sketch of the title character from The Savage Dragon, by Image Comics co-founder Erik Larsen, cost $60. Worth every penny!
18:33 – Mr. Homn was Lwaxana Troi’s valet in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He was played by 7-foot-tall Dutch actor Carel Struycken.
19:15 – The guy who played Jaws in the James Bond films, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, was Richard Kiel, who died in 2014 at age 74.

31:53 – Star Trek: Discovery is set roughly 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek TV show.
33:31 – The Klingons were in Star Trek: Enterprise. In fact, a Klingon is the first character you see in the pilot episode.
33:36 – Protagonist is the hero, antagonist is the villain.
39:25 – Tim never told us his “baseball bat in barbed wire” story. Everybody tweet him and remind him!
40:03 – Sonequa Martin-Green’s character in The Walking Dead, Sasha, actually killed herself, rather than being used as a pawn by Negan and his gang against her friends.
41:09 – The actor who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series is Tom Felton, who was also on the past season of The Flash.
42:22 – The most recent Marvel movie Tim actually saw was Spider-Man: Homecoming (I know, because I was there – and it was a double bill with Baby Driver!).
43:28 – The “weird dog” from the Inhumans is named Lockjaw. And he’s a good boy!
50:32 – Lexa Doig, Toronto native (woot!), is currently starring as Talia al Ghul on Arrow.
52:22 – Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered on Sept. 28, 1987.
57:10 – Shawn Ashmore, pride of Richmond, B.C., played Bobby “Iceman” Drake in the X-Men film series. He was the love interest of Rogue, played by Oscar-winner Anna Paquin, pride of Winnipeg!
