Podcast # 658 – “Scientific Method” – 1711.12

This week it’s back to a classic style podcast.  I start with a quick round-up of “Star Wars” news and some other geek topics as well.  I also review very briefly (and spoiler free) the new film, “Thor: Ragnarok” that I saw last week and really enjoyed as well.  I cover a couple other things and then it’s on to the main topic for this week’s show.

I really enjoy the 4th season episode I cover this week with full audio commentary called “Scientific Method.”  It’s a really cool episode and it has a somewhat unique and different type of story too.  We got a lot of fun character moments and we see Janeway pretty stressed out, Seven of Nine in a different uniform and the Doctor is tights too!  A cool episode to cover and talk about with all of you.

Next week there won’t be a podcast as I will be out at the annual Wizard World Comic Con down in Austin, Texas once again with all my good friends.  Come see us if you are in the area and can drop by the con.  In two week I’ll be back with a vidcast about the con.  You can support the podcast on Patreon HERE.  Until next time take care and enjoy the next couple of weeks everyone.

Podcast # 657 – More Ships with Jeff – 1711.05

This week our resident ship expert Jedi Jeff returns to bring us more up to speed on various ships of Sci-Fi.  Here are some comments from Jeff about his most recent ship podcast.

On the podcast I talk about a recent Star Wars Last Jedi trailer. I then talk a bit about some first thoughts on some ships from the Last Jedi. I also talk about the USS Orville, some talk about USS Discovery, and a bit about the Klingon ships from Discovery. I end off the podcast with some talk about models (Bandai Millennium Falcon) and Lego (UCS Millennium Falcon and NASA sets). In the podcast I reference some Klingon ship designs http://www.thetrekcollective.com/2017/10/discovery-klingon-designs-revealed-in.html

Thanks again to Jeff for another cool podcast.  Next week I will be back with a look at the Voyager episode called “Scientific Method.”  To support the podcast go to Patreon HERE.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Vidcast # 656 – HALLOWEEN 2017 – 1710.29

This week we have the annual Halloween vidcast for all of you to enjoy.  The idea this year was to share Halloween stories from past adventures of scary things that have happened to you on Halloween.  Big thanks to Rick Moyer for sending in his video for this show.  I talk a bit about current TV as well as some other topics too.  Enjoy this special show folks and have a great Halloween!

Podcast # 655 – “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” – 1710.22

This week our regular guest host Mark is back with another classic Sci-Fi movie.  This one is a special favorite of mine.  It’s the 1961 film “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” that inspired the TV series.  Here are some words from the man himself on this great film.

Hello Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  Today’s movie is an underwater adventure.  Before it was a TV show, it was a movie.  It’s Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, starring Walter Pidgeon, Joan Fontaine, Barbara Eden, Peter Lorre, Robert Sterling, Michael Ansara and Frankie Avalon.  This is a fun movie and I hope everyone enjoys the podcast!
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie.
Everyone take care…
This is M-5 signing off…
Thanks again Mark for another cool podcast.  Next week I will be back with a special Halloween vidcast.  For that, I’m looking for folks to share on video a special Halloween story or memory.  Send those videos in by the end of Saturday, October 28th please.  If you want to support the podcast, go to PATREON HERE.  Thanks all and enjoy your week ahead.


Podcast # 654 – “The Last Jedi” Trailer & More – 1710.15

This week I’m back with a shorter than normal podcast.  I wanted to touch on the latest TV show stuff that is going on.  There are a ton of shows to cover and  I run down the list fast & furiously (LOL).  I also wanted to comment on the big, new trailer to “The Last Jedi.”  This is just the second bit of trailer footage from the film we have gotten so far – and it’s great looking!  Super excited for this and glad I have my tickets in hand now for this cool movie coming in just exactly two months!

That’s all for this week.  Just a quick round up on things and what’s new in the world of geekdom.  Please support the podcast at Patreon HERE if you enjoy it each week.  Next week will be a guest cast and in two weeks there will be a special Halloween vidcast.  Enjoy your week!

Podcast # 653 – “The Orville” & more – 1710.08

This week I’m back doing a solo show talking about all the cool new “Trek” shows on TV.  Specifically “The Orville” on FOX and more on “Star Trek: Discovery” as well as even more geeky goodness.  I start out this week talking about the new “Blade Runner 2049” film and how much I love that world and the original film (hint – I like this new movie a lot too).  The world of “Blade Runner” is fascinating to me and it was great to be back in it.  I comment about more on “Star Trek: Discovery” which is turning into a very interesting show.  Then it’s on to the main topic.

“The Orville” at first seemed like it was going to be just a Trek-like comedy but it’s quickly turning into much more than that.  Seth MacFarlane is adding in some real drama and messages to his stories.  I like the cast and characters and this is turning out to be a cool new show.  I play a few clips, talk about the characters and give you my thoughts on the show so far.  Hope you enjoy it.

That’s about it for this week.  Most likely there will be a guest host next week.  To support the podcast go to PATREON HERE and that would be really, really cool and awesome of you!  Take care until next time and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 652 – “STAR TREK: DISCOVERY” – 1709.26


After over 12 long years (and over 650 TSF podcasts), “STAR TREK” is back!  I got together just last night with some good friends to talk about the first two episodes of the new “Star Trek: Discovery” TV series.  This seventh Trek series (counting the animated series) is set about 10 years prior to the original series and is quite different than any previous Trek we have ever seen.  There are some spoilers in this discussion – so you have been warned.  I want to give a big thanks to:  Will, Joe, Shawn, Rick & Amy Moyer, and Jen & Angela for joining me for a great chat.  We each give our impressions and feelings about this new series and we even talk some about the whole pay to watch, All-Access thing as well.  Really a fun discussion and I hope you enjoy listening.  I hope to do a few more of these during this first season of Discovery.  So, sit back and enjoy the podcast. 


Podcast # 651 – “Lifeforce” – 1709.17

This week our classic, Sci-Fi film buff Mark is back with a look at the film “Lifeforce” from 1985.  This is a pretty unique and unusual film and I’m glad that Mark took the time to review this one for us.  Here are some words from Mark about this cult classic.

Hello Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  Today’s podcast dedicated to Tobe Hooper.  Today’s movie is “Lifeforce” from 1985.  It stars Steve Railsback, Peter Firth, Frank Finlay and Mathilda May.  It’s a great movie!  It’s starts off as an alien movie, then shifts gears to a vampire movie then ends up as a zombie movie.  This movie is one of my guilty pleasure.  I hope everyone enjoys it.
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 another great show.  I will be back next week a day or two later than normal with a Skype cast covering the premiere of “Star Trek: Discovery.”  Really looking forward to seeing the newest Trek show and first new “TV Trek” in about 12 years.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.
