Podcast # 802 – Discover Season Three – 2101.10

This week the main topic is a look at season three of “Star Trek: Discovery.” I talk some about other things at first, what I’ve been watching and working on and then it’s on to the main topic – and there are spoilers in this podcast for Discovery.

I really enjoyed this season of Discovery and how it turned out. I cover the later episodes in the season and focus mainly on those and the season finale as well. Some really cool and interesting stuff and looking forward to season 4 (probably in early 2022). I hope others enjoyed this season as much as I did.

That’s it for this week. Next week Vartok will be back with part 2 of his look at the music of James Horner. I’ll be back in two weeks with a look ahead at upcoming TV for 2021 that is starting to come back (finally) now. Until next time, take care and be safe out there!

Podcast # 799 – “The Mandalorian” – 2012.20

A really fun show this week as I got together with friends from the “Star Wars Stacks” podcast including Jen, Angela, Chris, and Joe to talk all about season two of “The Mandalorian.” There are definite spoilers in this show so you have been warned. We have a great chat covering the show and even slip in a few bits of the latest going on in “Star Trek: Discovery.” Thanks to the SWS folks and I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one.

Next week the plan is to do a holiday vidcast. Everyone stay safe out there and enjoy the holidays too.

Podcast # 798 – Mega Disney – 2012.13

This week I mainly focus on going over the recent Disney announcements for new series coming to Disney+ along with feature film talk and announcements. I also cover some of the recent stuff going on in Trek and “The Mandalorian” show too.

A few days ago at the Disney investor meeting a HUGE amount of upcoming content was announced. Many new Marvel series, films and projects are coming as well as many new “Star Wars” related content too. So, much it’s going to be hard to keep up with it all. Of course, this all will be spread out over the next few years but it is exciting. I break it down and play some of the announcement stuff too right from the folks directly working on all this.

This week we go into the TSF DeLorean time machine and rerun a great show from 2012. It’s all about the first “Alien” movie and it’s hosted by Bryan and Al Kessel. I love the “Alien” franchise and the first movie is such an iconic film that I thought it would be fun to revisit this show. Thanks again guys for doing this back in the day.
