Star Trek fans know Taylor Sheridan as the actor who portrayed the character of Jareb in the Enterprise episode, "Chosen Realm." But Sheridan has since gone on to become a successful screenwriter. His first to movies, Sicario and Hell or High Water, make up the first two parts of his American Frontier trilogy, with the final installment, Wind River, due out in 2017.

In this episode of Stage Nine, Mike is joined by Marcelo Pico of The Talk Film Society to look at Sicario and Hell or High Water. We discuss Sheridan's transition from acting to writing, give our thoughts on the two films individually, and try to find what connects them thematically. We also debate the merits of Mr. Pibb and Dr. Pepper. In news, we preview Nicholas Meyer's appearance at the Star Trek convention in New York over Labor Day weekend.
