Week in Geek is The Companion‘s weekly digest of all the latest trailers, announcements, controversies, spicy memes, and more. Not everyone has the time or inclination to sit on social media all day staying on top of this… but we do and we need to justify the time we’ve wasted.

What We’re Looking At

Not sci-fi, but firmly embedded in geek culture, George Bletsis’ limited edition Mallrats poster is filled with easter eggs.

What We’re Talking About

Now that Breaking Bad-spin off Better Call Saul is winding up, Deadline reports that Vince Gilligan is reportedly eyeing up a Twilight Zone-style genre show that calls back to his X-Files work. Better Caul Saul, maybe. (Little occult joke for you.)

In a wide-reaching interview with TrekMovie.com, Ben Robinson, Eaglemoss’s former Director of Licensed Products, offered a glimmer of hope for collectors – asserting that completing “Build the Enterprise-D” is a priority for CBS.

Tim Miller’s animated sci-fi anthology series Love Death + Robots has been renewed for a fourth season at Netflix.

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution has picked up the feature-length documentary Doctor Who Am I for release in UK cinemas in October.

Late pledges have opened on Free League Publishing’s Blade Runner: The Roleplaying Game, which takes place in 2037, between the two movies.

Production has kicked off on The Boys Season 4.

The X-Files | Better Call ‘Pusher’: Vince Gilligan’s Tragic Men & Monsters
