Podcast # 683 – Jupiter 2 – 1805.20

This week Jedi Jeff is back as the guest host covering the various versions of the Jupiter 2 spacecraft from “Lost in Space.”  With the new Netflix series (now renewed for a second season) this seemed like a cool idea for a show.  Jeff covers the Jupiter 2 from the older TV series, the film from several years back and the current Netflix show.  Big thanks to Jeff for another cool guest podcast.

Next week I’ll be here with a vidcast about Motor City Comic Con that I just went to this weekend.  It was a lot of fun and very busy too.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 682 – Batman – 1805.13

This week I cover the classic 1960’s era “Batman” TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward.  I first talk about the usual geek stuff I’m watching on TV and at the movies and what I’m looking forward to seeing this month too.  Then it’s on to talk about a big favorite series of mine.

I grew up watching reruns of “Star Trek” and “Batman” – both TV series from the 1960’s, both lasted just 3 seasons and both left a mark on pop culture we still feel today.  I talk about the origins of the series, the actors and guest stars and play some clips of course during my discussion.  I also cover some of the behind the scenes trivia and other details about this iconic series.  It was a fun show to record and I hope you enjoy listening to me reminisce about this classic show.

Next week Jedi Jeff will be here talking about the ships of “Lost in Space” and I’m sure some collectible talk as well.  I will be at the Motor City Comic Con next weekend and will do a vidcast about that on May 27th.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 681 – Avengers Infinity War, etc. – 1805.06

This week on the podcast my buddy Chris Clemente from the “Star Wars Stacks” podcast and me get together to dive deep into the “Avengers Infinity War” movie.  There are many spoilers for the film in the podcast, so don’t listen until you see the movie.  We also talk about what we are hoping for in the “Han Solo” film coming out soon and we talk a bit about “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 2 (some small spoilers for season one).  And, Chris also hits me with some Trek Trivial Pursuit too.  A real fun chat that is super nerdy, geeky and super fun!  Hope you all enjoy it!

Next week I will be back with a look at the 1960’s era “Batman” series and much more fun on Treks in Sci-Fi.  You can support the podcast HERE.  Until next time, take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 680 – “Red Planet Mars” – 1804.29

This week Mark returns with a look at the classic Sci-Fi film from 1952 called, “Red Planet Mars.”  This is a cool little gem and Mark covers the film and plays selected clips too.  Here are some words from the man himself on this classic movie.

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 “Red Planet Mars” from 1952.  It stars Peter Graves and Andrea King.  This is a classic, cold war era science fiction movie.  It’s a rare gem and I hope you enjoy it!
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie…
Until then… Take care…
This is M-5 signing off…
Thanks again to Mark for another fun guest podcast.  I will be here next week again with Chris as we cover more Trek things and talk a bit about “Avengers: Infinity War” too.  And the full film Mark covered this week is down below.  So, until next time, take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 679 – “The Conscience of the King” – 1804.22

This week is a classic style podcast.  First, I talk some about my excitement for the next “Avengers” film coming out later this week.  I talk a little about what I’m watching on TV – including the cool new, “Lost in Space” series on Netflix.  Then on move on to this week’s main topic.

The episode from TOS called, “The Conscience of the King” is from season one of the series and I play the episode and offer commentary.  I’m actually reading a related Trek book right now that involves this story.  The book is called, “Drastic Measures” and that involves some of the Discovery characters too.  This TOS episode was not a big favorite of mine while growing up watching Trek reruns but I have come to appreciate it more these days.  It has some interesting and unique moments and I do enjoy a good Uhura song scene too.  Hope you enjoy my look at this episode for this week.

Next week Mark will be here with a look at the film, “Red Planet Mars.”  I will be back in two weeks.  You can support the podcast via Patreon HERE.

Until next time, take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 678 – Aurora Repeat – 1804.15

This week on the podcast I repeat a show from way back in 2006 (#38 actually).  In this episode I play for you the second of my old audio adventures of the Starship Aurora that I did with my friends way back in high school.  These were scripts we wrote and acted out on audio tape with effects and music slipped in.  Due to the equipment and times we worked in the audio quality is not great, but these were a lot of fun to record and do with my friends.  This episode was #2 and is called, “Rage” where we all go a little nuts.  This post HERE will link you to all the old Aurora episodes.  Hope you enjoy this!

Next week I will be back with a look at the TOS episode, “The Conscience of the King.”  You can support the show on Patreon HERE.

Have a great week and take care until next time.

Podcast # 677 – Comics Chat – 1804.08

This week on the podcast I get together with my buddy Chris Clemente from the “Star Wars Stacks” podcast and we finally sit down for a long chat about comic books.  Both Chris and I love comic books, comic book films and everything in between.  We cover how we both got into reading comics, we talk about some of our favorite books, how comics have changed over the years and so on.  We also talk quite a bit about the breadth of comic books films over the years and what we think of them.  It’s a nice chat and we cover a lot of ground.  I hope you enjoy listening to what we have to say and big thanks to Chris for joining the show this week.

Next week will be a guest cast.  If you want to support the podcast go to Patreon HERE and donate monthly what you can.  Every little bit helps.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week ahead.

This week guest host Joe Mastroianni from the great gaming podcast called the Upper Memory Block Podcast (or UMB Cast) is sitting in for me as we do a little cross-promotion and let Joe tell you all about a game from 1992 called “The Lost Vikings.”  Joe does his usual fun and detailed job covering the games and it’s various incarnations.  Sit back and let Joe tell you all about this cool blast from the past in the world of gaming.  Also check out Joe’s podcast HERE and also his Patreon page HERE too.
