Podcast # 661 – “20 Million Miles to Earth” – 1712.10

This week classic Sci-Fi film buff Mark returns with another great film.  Here are some words from the main man himself on this fun 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 a creature feature.  It’s “20 Millions Miles to Earth”, starring William Hopper, Joan Taylor and Frank Puglia.  This movie showcases the King of Stop Motion Animation, Ray Harryhausen. This is a fun movie and  I hope everyone enjoys the podcast. 
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie.
Until then…
Take care…

Thanks again to Mark for another great guest spot.  Next week the podcast will be delayed a few days and probably not be out until Dec. 19th so we can gather on Skype and chat about “The Last Jedi.”  Until next time, enjoy your week and definitely enjoy seeing the next “Star Wars” movie!

Podcast # 660 – Austin Trek Talk – 1712.03

About two weeks ago at Austin Comic Con Jen & Angela from the Anomaly Podcast and me got together to talk all about the last two episodes of “Star Trek: Discovery” that aired just before the fall mid-season break for the show.  So, this chat was recorded right on the convention floor and we cover episodes 8 & 9 of the Discovery and other related topics and a little con stuff too.  Of course, this show contains spoilers for the episodes so you have been warned if you are not caught up on the show.  I want to thank Jen & Angela for letting me share this recording with all of you and make sure to check out their great podcast if you don’t already subscribe right HERE.  Also, you can see more from the con over at my Vimeo Channel HERE or on my Youtube channel HERE.  And if you want to support the Treks in Sci-Fi podcast you can do that on Patreon right HERE as well.  I wrap up this week’s podcast with a music moment from Vartok and also with a Trekmas song from Rick Moyer.  Next week will be a guest podcast.  Until next time take care out there and enjoy your week.


Vidcast # 659 – “Austin Comic Con 2017” – 1711.26

Well, this year was great again because I got to go to Wizard World’s Austin Comic Con 2017 and see all my friends from the Anomaly Podcast once more.  It really was a fun-filled three days catching with everyone, seeing cool stuff, getting celebrity photos, cosplaying and much more.  So, I made a big vidcast about the whole thing (see down below).  I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I enjoyed the con and making the vidcast and the music video’s inside the show.  Anyway, make sure to visit the Anomaly Podcast too for their coverage and take on all this.

If you want to support the podcast (and see previews of things to comic – like stuff at the con), go over to PATREON and sign up.  Thanks to everyone that supports the show.

Next week I should be back with probably more con talk and other topics too.  Take care until then and enjoy your week!



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…

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!
