Podcast # 687 – “Lessons” – 1806.17

This week it’s a classic style show with a look at recent geeky stuff and a TNG episode commentary.  I start off with talking about upcoming cons I will be attending (like San Diego in July) and also hopefully next year’s Star Wars celebration convention in Chicago too.  I talk a little about recent TV & movies and then it’s on to the Trek episode for this week.

I like the TNG episode “Lessons” quite a lot.  It’s a love story episode about Picard and one of his crew but it’s handled very well, if not a bit too quickly.  It has some nice character moments and the guest star, late actress Wendy Hughes is especially good as Nella Daren.  I enjoyed watching this one quite a bit again and I comment as I play it for all of you.

After the Trek episode I play a special musical moment treat by Vartok about the music from “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”  Thanks Vartok!  

That’s about all for this week.  Next week should be a guest cast.  Until next time stay cool and enjoy your week!

Podcast # 686 – “Attack of the 50ft. Woman” – 1806.10

This week Mark is back with another cool cult classic film from 1958.  I’ll let him tell you more about his latest guest podcast.

Hello Everybody!
 
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest!  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  Today’s  movie is “Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.”  This movie is a Sci-Fi B-movie classic.  It stars Allison Hayes, William Hudson and Yvette Vickers. This movie is one of those movies that are so bad, they are good!  Bad dialog and horrible special effects only make this classic better!  I hope everyone enjoys it!
 
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie!
 
Until then…
Everyone take care…
This is M-5 signing off…
 
Thanks again Mark for another great guest podcast and a look at this fun movie.  You can support the podcast on PATREON HERE.
 
Next weekend I’ll be back with a look at a TNG episode called, “Lessons.”  Until next time take care and enjoy your week ahead.

This week it’s a great show for you as I got together with Joe (from the Upper Memory Block Podcast) and Angela (from the Anomaly Podcast) over Skype to talk in depth about the new “Solo: A Star Wars Story” film that is now playing.  We talk about what we enjoyed about the film and give you our thoughts about why this really is a fun “Star Wars” film that every fan should see in the theater.  There are spoilers in this show so you have been warned.  Really a fun chat with my friends about this latest film in the “Star Wars” saga and a big thanks to them for joining me.  Make sure to check out their podcasts too.

This week it’s a big vidcast (down below) about the 2018 Motor City Comic Con that took place last weekend over May 18-20 in Novi, Michigan.  I talk a little about the new “Solo – A Star Wars Story” movie (no spoilers) and a few other things before I talk about the convention.  I include a music video that I did featuring video and pictures I took at the con and talk about what I saw and bought at the con too.  It was a fun time and enjoyed doing this vidcast for all of you too.  Enjoy it!

Podcast # 683 – Jupiter 2 – 1805.20

This week Jedi Jeff is back as the guest host covering the various versions of the Jupiter 2 spacecraft from “Lost in Space.”  With the new Netflix series (now renewed for a second season) this seemed like a cool idea for a show.  Jeff covers the Jupiter 2 from the older TV series, the film from several years back and the current Netflix show.  Big thanks to Jeff for another cool guest podcast.

Next week I’ll be here with a vidcast about Motor City Comic Con that I just went to this weekend.  It was a lot of fun and very busy too.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 682 – Batman – 1805.13

This week I cover the classic 1960’s era “Batman” TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward.  I first talk about the usual geek stuff I’m watching on TV and at the movies and what I’m looking forward to seeing this month too.  Then it’s on to talk about a big favorite series of mine.

I grew up watching reruns of “Star Trek” and “Batman” – both TV series from the 1960’s, both lasted just 3 seasons and both left a mark on pop culture we still feel today.  I talk about the origins of the series, the actors and guest stars and play some clips of course during my discussion.  I also cover some of the behind the scenes trivia and other details about this iconic series.  It was a fun show to record and I hope you enjoy listening to me reminisce about this classic show.

Next week Jedi Jeff will be here talking about the ships of “Lost in Space” and I’m sure some collectible talk as well.  I will be at the Motor City Comic Con next weekend and will do a vidcast about that on May 27th.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 681 – Avengers Infinity War, etc. – 1805.06

This week on the podcast my buddy Chris Clemente from the “Star Wars Stacks” podcast and me get together to dive deep into the “Avengers Infinity War” movie.  There are many spoilers for the film in the podcast, so don’t listen until you see the movie.  We also talk about what we are hoping for in the “Han Solo” film coming out soon and we talk a bit about “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 2 (some small spoilers for season one).  And, Chris also hits me with some Trek Trivial Pursuit too.  A real fun chat that is super nerdy, geeky and super fun!  Hope you all enjoy it!

Next week I will be back with a look at the 1960’s era “Batman” series and much more fun on Treks in Sci-Fi.  You can support the podcast HERE.  Until next time, take care and enjoy your week.
