Jovial Jay and Shua pick the ultimate collectibles that would be part of our collection if anything was possible on Enjoy Stuff!

What we’re Enjoying
Like many Dr. Who fans, Jay made sure to check out the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Specials starring David Tennant as the good doctor. It ended up being very well done and something we can all Enjoy. Check it out on Disney+. Shua streamed on Prime Video series recommended to him by his daughter called Daisy Jones and the Six. It tells the story of a fictional 70’s rock band and their exploits on the way to stardom. Enjoyable story and GREAT music!
This week on Sci-Fi Saturdays Jay revisits the 2001 Steven Spielberg movie A.I. Artificial Intelligence. A good story to begin with, but also themes that seem even more relevant today. Plus, it has a really interesting backstory in how it even got made. Check out his article to see why. He has also been updating locations from Marvel TV and movies, including the Loki series. Play around with the interactive map on MCULocationScout.com. Plus, you can tune in to SHIELD: Case Files where Jay and Shua break down each episode of the Hawkeye series and more.
Earlier this year the classic Brady Bunch house, that had been renovated to look like the actual set, for $3.2 million. Now THAT is an expensive collectible! But this is Enjoy Stuff where we can imagine just about anything. So we made a list of our ultimate collectibles. We chose places to live, iconic vehicles, and just about anything else that there’s no way we could ever possess. But in this scenario even Fantasy Island is up for grabs. So sit back, relax, and fantasize about what you’d put on (or completely around) your collectibles shelf.
What would you collect if anything was possible? First person that emails me with the subject line, “It belongs in a museum” will get a special mention on the show. Let us know. Come talk to us in the Discord channel or send us an email to EnjoyStuff@RetroZap.com

The National Toy Hall of Fame has inducted their finalist this year, but Jovial Jay and Shua pick their choices for the Enjoy Stufftopia Discontinued Toy Hall of Fame on Enjoy Stuff!
We think there are some pretty cool toys that you don’t see anymore that deserve their place in a museum. Join us as we pick our favorites for the Discontinued Toy Hall of Fame.
The Hall and Oates legal drama continues
Marty Krofft, co-creator of some of our wacky childhood entertainment has died at 86

What we’re Enjoying
Shua has been enjoying a new novel by John Scalzi called Starter Villain. This one is also narrated by Will Wheaton and tells the story of an man who unexpectedly inherits his uncle's super villain company. Sound weird? Weird enough to check out for sure! Jovial Jay revisited the 1981 Ray Harryhausen classic Clash of the Titans. It was a groundbreaking movie in a lot of ways and a fun watch today.
This week on Sci-Fi Saturdays Jay looks back at the 2000 movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger called The 6th Day. Arnold is faced with a clone of himself and all the discomfort that would present. Though it was very en Vogue to feature our nearest planetary neighbor back then, this one may not have entirely hit the mark.The story is a little spoon-fed, but entertaining nonetheless. Check out his article to see why. He has also been updating locations from Marvel TV and movies, including the Loki series. Play around with the interactive map on MCULocationScout.com. Plus, you can tune in to SHIELD: Case Files where Jay and Shua break down each episode of the Hawkeye series and more.
It’s the time of year when the National Toy Museum picks their Hall of Fame finalists. Once again, some iconic toys have made it into the mix. They even picked one from the Forgotten Five; a group of toys that never seem to quite make it. But here at Enjoy Stuff we believe there are some toys that are no longer around, but also deserve their moment in the spotlight. So we have set up a Discontinued Toy Hall of Fame in our town of EnjoyStufftopia. JovialJay and Shua pick some of their favorite toys from their youth that they would love to see on display.
Do you have a toy that would fit in our Hall of Fame? First person that emails me with the subject line, “It belongs in a museum” will get a special mention on the show. Let us know. Come talk to us in the Discord channel or send us an email to EnjoyStuff@RetroZap.com
