Podcast # 592 – “Fallen Hero” – 1606.26

I’m back!  After a few weeks away, I’m back with a new classic style show.  I start off talking about my son’s recent wedding and all the things I’ve been doing the last few weeks – including continuing to work on my Trek set project for the show.  Then I give my views and opinions about the new Trek Fan Film rules put out by CBS/Paramount.  These rules are basically going to kill Trek fan films and I’m sad about that unless a compromise can be found.  Then I move on to the Trek episode commentary on the Enterprise episode, “Fallen Hero.”  I like this episode a lot and it focuses on a Vulcan diplomat and hero of T’Pol’s that comes aboard the ship.  Lots of good stuff in this episode and a great guest star too.

I wrap up the show with some brief comments on two new collectibles.  I got a Spock action figure from Mezcotoyz that is very cool and a Bluetooth enabled Communicator from The Wand Company.  Both great items and I’ve linked them here in the notes.  That’s about all for this time.  Next week will be a guest spot.  Until next time, enjoy your week and take care out there.

“Star Trek Continues” – ‘Come Not Between the Dragons’

Latest fan film from this terrific ensemble.  Came out about a month ago.  Really a great story, amazing looking as always, and a new engineering set too.  Definitely give this a watch when you can and enjoy the continuation of TOS – I know I am loving it!

Podcast # 591 – “The Man From Planet X” – 1606.19

This week Mark is back with another classic Sci-Fi film to review and cover.  Here are some words from the man himself on this classic Sci-Fi tale:

Happy Father’s Day Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  Today I’m going to look at a classic sci-fi B-movie.  It’s “The Man from Planet X”  from 1951.  It stars Robert Clarke, Margaret Field and William Schallert.  It’s the first alien invasion movie of the 1950s.  It’s a fun movie and I hope you all enjoy it.
Take care everyone…
This is M-5 signing off…
Big thanks for Mark for filling in this week with a another cool guest podcast.  I will be back finally next week with a look at the Enterprise episode, “Fallen Hero.”  Until then take care and enjoy your week ahead.


Podcast # 590 – The Year 1977 – 1606.05

This week on the podcast I do another show looking back at a select year in genre movies & TV – this time it’s the year 1977.  Most know this was a huge year due to the release of the first “Star Wars” movie (over 39 years ago now).  But many other cool & fun Sci-Fi and fantasy films and TV shows came out that year as well.  I talk at the start of the show about my set building thanks to the Patreon support for the podcast.  I also talk a bit about the recent controversy about “Rogue One” reshoots (or additional shoots).  Then I talk about the main topic and cover several key films and TV shows from the year 1977.  This year means a lot to me and I know many others since it began the “Star Wars” saga.  I hope you enjoy this podcast looking abck at this amazing year in the genre.

Next week there won’t be a podcast as my older son is getting married.  Mark will be here in two weeks with a look at the film, “The Man From Planet X” and I will be back the last weekend of this month to look at the Enterprise episode, “Fallen Hero.”  Until then take care and enjoy the nice summer weather.

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!
