Podcast # 641 – Spider-Man – 1707.02

A mini, shorter than normal podcast this week where I briefly cover and talk about my favorite comic book super hero, Spider-Man.  I talk briefly about his origins, the reasons I love this character and why I have read his comics for decades.  I also talk quickly about his on-screen appearances and my excitement for the new film, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” that is due out later this week.  Hope you enjoy this show and Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans.  I will be back next week with another, more typical show for all of you.  Feel free to support the podcast over at Patreon right HERE.  Thanks and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 640 – Summer Skype Chat – 1706.25

This week it’s out annual Summer Skype chat about summer movies.  I’m joined by Rick Peete, Angela, Bryan, and Rick Moyer for a great discussion on several of the cool summer films we have seen so far.  We also get into talking about some recent “Star Wars” news and also a bit about our hopes for “Star Trek: Discovery.”  So buckle up – because there was some alcohol involved in the recording of this one folks!  Big thanks to my friends who had time to join me this week – you all rock!

Next week will be a guest cast.  Until next time, take care and enjoy your week ahead!

Podcast # 639 – “Rocketship X-M” – 1706.18

This week we have another look at a classic Sci-Fi film for all of you.  Mark returns with a look and review of the classic “Rocketship X-M” from 1950.  Here are some words from Mark on this classic movie.

Happy Father’s Day Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another blast form the past.  This week’s movie is the first post WWII science fiction movie to be made in Hollywood.  It’s “Rocketship X-M!”  It stars Lloyd Bridges and Osa Massen.  This is the movie that started the 1950’s science fiction genre.  It’s a solid sci-fi B-movie.  I hope you all enjoy it!
 
Thank you Rico for letting me cover another classic science fiction movie!
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie.
 
Until then…
 
Everyone take care…
This is M-5 signing off…
 
Thanks again Mark for doing another cool guest show.  If you want to support the podcast go to Patreon HERE and sign up.  I’ll be back next weekend with a group Skype chat about summer movies and other topics.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 638 – “Violations” – 1706.11

This week I’m back with a classic style show featuring a TNG episode.  First, I talk about the great new “Wonder Woman” movie and how much I enjoyed it.  Really good and I hope a sign of good things to come from DC comic movies.  I also have a music moment from Vartok featuring some Wonder Woman music from the film.  Then I talk a little about the strange TV I’m watching at the moment and what else I’ve been enjoying.  Then it’s on to the TNG episode.

The season 5 episode from TNG called “Violations” is not the greatest Trek episode, but I think it’s an interesting one.  This is the episode involving the telepathic aliens who come aboard the Enterprise and one of them is a very bad person.  He basically can go into a person’s mind and alter their memories to point and he violates several of the crew – especially Troi.  Eventually Picard and company get to the bottom of things.  This episode has a strong message about rape – but in this case it’s a mental violation.  Strong stuff, but handled well on TNG.

That’s about it for this time out.  Next week should be a guest cast and in two weeks a Skype show.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 637 – Ready Room Bloopers – 1706.04

Hello folks!  This week we have a special blast from the past episode for all of you.  About 9 years ago or so when the supplemental Ready Room Podcast was going covering our Trek story writing on the TSF forum the team there assembled this great group of clips and bloopers from their recording sessions.  This week’s show was only released once way back in 2008 and now you get to hear it again (or maybe for the first time).  Big thanks to Kenny, Jen, and Rick Moyer for the laughs and all their efforts on the Ready Room and beyond over the years.  They are good friends and I’ve been able to meet two of them in real life which was great (and yes Rick Moyer, I will get out to see you sometime).  I hope I’m not embarrassing them by playing this again – it’s all in good fun!  So, download and give it a listen.

Remember you can support the podcast over at PATREON here and all the videos I make are over at my Vimeo channel HERE.  Next week I will be back with a classic style show covering the TNG episode called, “Violations.”  Today I’m finally going to see the “Wonder Woman” movie!  Until next time take care and enjoy the podcast and your week ahead.

Vidcast # 636 – Motor City Comic Con – 1705.28

This week I’m back with a fun filled vidcast covering last weekend’s Motor City Comic Con that I attend each year.  It was a very packed con and I took a bunch of pics and video to share with all of you.  My son Stephen went as well and we picked up some cool art which I show you during this show.  I also talk about the recent “Star Trek: Discovery” trailer where we get our first real look at this new series.  Very excited for that!  Hope everyone enjoys this special show and if you want to support the podcast head over to Patreon to just donate a small amount to show your love for Treks in Sci-Fi!  I’ll talk to everyone again very soon and now click below to enjoy the vidcast.

“Star Trek: Discovery” – First Trailer

The first, real trailer has dropped for the upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery” CBS All-Access series.  I think it looks incredible.  Can’t wait to start watching the 15 episode this fall on CBS All-Access.

“Wonder Woman” – final trailer

I’m liking the look and feel of this film, but they sure have shown us a ton of footage in all these trailers.  Still, very much looking forward to seeing it on June 2nd.
