Podcast # 577 – “Meridian” – 1602.28

This week is a DS9 podcast covering the season three episode called, “Meridian.”  I first make some comments about both Bryan Fuller and Nicholas Meyer joining the new Trek series team.  I also talk a little about some of the recent things going on with me (very busy lately).  Then on to the podcast commentary on the DS9 episode.

I like this episode and it’s a fairly simple story overall.  Basically it’s a Dax love story show with a few other things things tossed in.  There are some nice moments in this one even if it isn’t the greatest Trek episode ever.  A nice episode for Dax and Terry Farrell.

Next week there won’t be a show as I will just be back from China and probably sleeping for a day straight.  In two weeks I will be back with a look at some current TV shows I’m enjoying.  In any case, talk to you again soon and take care out there.

Podcast # 576 – “Soylent Green” – 1602.21

This week, my friend Mark is back with another classic SF film and a personal favorite of mine, “Soylent Green.”  This is a great film and Mark does another fantastic job covering it on the podcast.  Now some words from the man himself about his most recent guest podcast.

Hello Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest and I’m your guest host this weekend.  Today I’m going to look at the final movie in the Charlton Heston science fiction trilogy  (The other two movies were Planet of the Apes and The Omega Man).  That’s right!  I’m going to take a look at Soylent Green from 1973.  It stars Charlton Heston, Leigh Taylor-Young and Edward G. Robinson, in his final role.  Soylent Green is one of the quintessential science fiction movies of the 1970s.  It’s a bummer, but it’s a great movie.  I hope everyone enjoys it.  Just remember that Tuesday is Soylent Green Day.
Everyone have a great work week!
This is M-5 signing off…
Big thanks again to Mark for covering another classic film.  I’ll be back next weekend with a look at the DS9 episode, “Meridian.”  Until then, take care and enjoy your week.


Podcast # 575 – Sci-Fi & Fantasy Romance – 1602.14

A special show for this week celebrating Valentine’s Day.  I talk all about romance in Sci-Fi and fantasy movies, TV, and more.  I first give a spoiler free review of the new “Deadpool” movie and talk about my recent TV watching.  Then I get into the romance topic for the show.  I enjoy romantic Sci-Fi and fantasy – yeah, I’ll admit it.  I think it makes these movies & TV more real – when done well, of course.  I talk about romances in “Star Trek” and some of my favorite couples and romantic films & TV over the past many years.  I try to point out a few you might not think about as well as some classic couples and romances.  I hope you enjoy this show for this very romantic holiday.

Next week should be a guest host from the podcast and I’ll be back in two weeks with a look at the Trek episode, “Meridain” from DS9.  Until next time stay warm and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 574 – Ships of “The Force Awakens” – 1602.07

This week Jedi Jeff is guest hosting and covering the ships of “The Force Awakens.”  Jeff is a big collector like me and does a cool job with his podcasts like this one.  Here are some comments from Jeff on his most recent show:

Hi Everyone, this is Jeff (Jedi Jeff) and this week I am guest hosting on Treks in Sci-Fi, and I am covering the ships from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” I talk about some of the information revealed so far about ships for the First Order and the Resistance, and also gives some of my thoughts on them. Most of the information comes from Visual Dictionary and Cross sections books released for the Force Awakens. I also talk a bit about the new X-Files episodes and the Smithsonian restoration project currently happening on the Original Enterprise from TOS. Thanks everyone for listening.

Thanks again to Jeff for doing another great guest podcast. I’ll be here next weekend on Valentine’s Day to cover romance in Sci-Fi & Fantasy where I’ll talk about some of my favorite romances and couples in the genre area.  Until then enjoy your week and the Big Game today too.


Podcast # 573 – “Doctor Who” (series 9) – 1601.31

This week we have a great show!  It’s a Skype chat with myself, Chris Clemente and Simon (Meds) Meddings all about the most recent series (or season 9) of “Doctor Who.”  This is one of my most favorite current shows and we cover briefly all the episodes and talk about the show and series in general.  There will be some spoilers in this podcast if you are not caught up on the show – so, you have been warned.  Thanks to Chris & Meds for joining me this week.

Still in need of a guest host for next weekend.  But, I’ll come up with something if no one jumps in.  Until next time, take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 572 – “Outland” – 1601.24

This week guest host Mark (M-5) looks at a somewhat more recent classic Sci-Fi film called “Outland” from 1981.  Here are some comments from the man himself about this movie.

Happy New Year Everyone!  
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  Normally I would take a look at a classic movie from the 1950s or 1960s.  Today I’m going to take a look at modern classic science fiction movie.  It’s “Outland” from 1981.  It stars Sean Connery, Peter Boyle and Frances Sternhagen.  Outland in one of these underrated science fiction that always seems to fly under the radar.  Some would call this movie a western in space.  Whatever you want to call, it’s great movie and Sean Connery is the man!  
I hope everyone enjoys it!
Until next time…
This is M-5 signing off…
Thanks once again to Mark for another cool podcast.  I’ll be back next weekend with Chris & Meds as we discuss the most recent series (or season) of “Doctor Who.”  Take care until then and enjoy your week.
