Podcast # 589 – “The Omega Glory” – 1605.30

This week a classic show for Memorial Day with a look at the TOS episode called, “The Omega Glory.”  This is a good episode and one appropriate for the holiday in a way.  I first talk about the “X-Men Apocalypse” film and give a short, spoiler-free review of the movie.  I liked it and talk a little about my love for the X-Men comics that I’ve read for many years.  Then I talk a bit about my recent Patreon Phase II project as I build the next part of my set and I also talk about some of the recent TV season as well.  Then I get into discussing the Trek episode and play several clips from the show.  There are some nice meanings and messages in this episode and I’ve come to enjoy it more over the years even though it wasn’t a favorite of mine growing up watching it in reruns.  I finish off the show talking about upcoming podcasts and a few other geeky topics.  Hope everyone enjoyed the podcast this week.  Have a great week!

This week our resident classic Sci-Fi film geek Mark is back with a look at another fun movie.  This time it’s from 1955 and called “It Came From Beneath the Sea.”  Here are some words from Mark about this classic SF film.

Hello Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  This week I’m going back to the 1950s for a Creature Feature.  Today’s movie is “It Came from Beneath the Sea.”  It stars Kenneth “The Thing from Another World” Tobey, Faith “This Island Earth” Domergue and Donald “The Earth vs. The Flying Saucers” Curtis.  It’s a classic sci-fi B-movie.  What makes it even better is Ray Harryhausen’s stop animation.  This is a fun movie.  I hope you all enjoy it!
Take care everyone…
