Podcast # 862 – “Picard and SNW” – 2205.15

This week is a bit of a change in my original plans. I look at the season 2 finale of “Star Trek: Picard” and the opening two episodes of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.” First, I cover some other topics like the CW show “purge” some other TV series and some movie talk too. Then on to Trek!

Some slight spoilers in the Trek part of the show this week as I discuss season two of Picard and how things wrapped up. Then I talk about “Strange New Worlds” and how much I’m loving this new Trek series. It’s just fantastic so far – in my informed opinion. That’s about it for this show.

Next week will hopefully be a guest cast or maybe a repeat show. I’ll be back in two weeks with a new podcast. Until next time take care and enjoy the weeks ahead.

Podcast # 861 – “Where No One Has Gone Before” – 2205.01

This week it’s a classic style podcast. I start out talking about recent TV I’ve watched and a little on this week’s premiere of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” and then it’s on to the main topic. I do a full episode commentary on the early, 1st season TNG episode titled, “Where No One Has Gone Before.” I think this is a great episode and set up several things that would continued through the series. Good stuff!

Next weekend I might be back again with a new episode or use a repeat show. In two weeks I’ll be a Motor City Comic Con as the world continues to come back out of it’s two-year shell of COVID issues. Great looking forward to that! Until next time take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 860 – “Halo Music” – 2204.24

This week Vartok is back as a guest host for a full show. Here are some words from him on his guest spot for this week.

Microsoft’s series of Halo combat games have become one of the most successful franchises in human history with over $6B dollars in sales and 81+ million units delivered since release of the first game in 2001.  The music of Halo reintroduced an interest in Chant Music and helped to provide a legitimacy of video game music as its own respected genre in the entertainment industry.  Featured in this podcast by Vartok are music tracks from 12 different Halo games along with game background material.

Big thanks to Vartok for another cool guest podcast. Next week I will be back here with a classic style Trek commentary episode. Until next time, take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Vidcast # 859 – “Collectibles” – 2204.18

This week I did a brand new vidcast! It’s all about some recent collectibles I’ve gotten. I show them off and discuss a few on the show. All recorded via my new iPhone Pro 13 and I think it came out well. Hope you enjoy the show.

Next week Vartok will be here with a look at the music from the new “Halo” TV series. Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 858 – “Tarantula” – 2204.10

This week Mark is guest hosting and covering the 1955 film, “Tarantula!.” I’m not a big fan of spiders so it’s good Mark is covering this one. Here are some comments from the man himself!

What’s Happening 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 a big-bug classic.  It’s Tarantula! from 1955.  It stars John Agar, Mara Corday and Leo G. Carroll.  It’s fun movie and I hope you all enjoy it!  Warning!  If you don’t like spiders, this movie ain’t for you. I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie. Until then take care and stay strong! This is M-5 signing off…

Big thanks again to Mark for another great show! My hope and plan for next weekend is to do a vidcast on collectibles and some recent things I’ve gotten. Until next time, stay safe and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 857 – COVID & COMICS – 2204.03

Well, after over two years I finally got The COVID. Not too bad yet but very glad I’m vaccinated! I try to power on through and do a podcast on recent things I’m watching between blowing my nose as well as talk comics too. We also have another music segment by Vartok as well. Hope you enjoy this “under the weather” (which is a weird expression) podcast.

Next week will be a guest cast by Mark. Until next time take care and be safe out there!

Podcast # 856 – DISCO 4 – 2203.20

This week I do a wrap-up discussion for season 4 of “Star Trek: Discovery.” I run down what I thought of the overall story arc and talk about some moments along the way. I also talk a bit about other shows and films I’ve been watching before I get into the Trek talk. Also near the end of the show I talk a bit about the current season of Picard too. Fun show this week to discuss so much Trek!

Next week will be a repeat show or guest cast. Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 855 – Bats, Cats & more – 2203.13

This week it’s another grab bag show where I cover the latest in geek entertainment and news. I talk about what I’ve been watching the last few weeks. I cover my thoughts on “The Batman” and what I think of this latest Bat-film (very slight spoilers). I also talk about the new Netflix film, “The Adam Project” with Ryan Reynolds. And I talk about the recent trailers for the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series and also “Strange New Worlds.” So much nerd content lately it’s harder and harder to keep up with it all. Hope you enjoy my thoughts on all the above. We also have a fun music moment by Vartok in the show too!

That’s it for this week. Next week it will be an almost all-Trek show where I discuss season four of “Discovery” and the new season of “Picard” too. Until then take care and enjoy your week ahead.
