Vidcast # 540 – Motor City Comic Con – 1505.24

This week on the podcast it’s a vidcast where I cover last weekend’s big, Motor City Comic Con.  It was the 26th annual event and I usually go each year and cover it for the podcast and to have some fun too.  I also got to meet up with listener Ruth Cowles this year who lives in Michigan too and she also was nice enough to send in a video report for the show.  Lots of pictures and video ahead and I hope you all enjoy the show!  I will be back next weekend with Chris Clemente and we will cover both “Arrow” and “The Flash” TV shows.  My Patreon fund raising effort is still active and going so check that out HERE and if you can donate a little each month I really would appreciate it (and thanks to those that has pledged donations so far – YOU ROCK).  Take care until then and enjoy the week ahead.


Podcast # 539 – Moms of Sci-Fi – 1505.17

This week, Rick & Amy Moyer are back with a fun podcast about Sci-Fi moms and other topics of geeky interest.  Here are some words from them on their guest host podcast for this week.

Join Rick & Amy Moyer this week as they talk about the new Star Wars movie, geeky television, and the main topic- SCI FI MOMS.  It’s a fun look at a ton of moms that we have come to know and love in the sci fi and fantasy genre of entertainment. ENJOY!

Big thanks to Rick & Amy for doing another fun guest spot.  Check out Rick’s cool parody songs HERE.  Also, make sure to check out my Patreon fund raising drive right HERE to help support the show and build a cool new set for more videocasts for all of you to enjoy (and thanks to those that have set up a contribution so far – you all ROCK).  I will be back next weekend with a videocast covering the Motor City Comic Con that happened this weekend in Michigan.  Take care until then and enjoy your week.


Podcast # 538 – “Realm of Fear” – 1505.10

This week on the podcast I give a short, spoiler free review of “Age of Ultron.”  We also have a music moment from Vartok covering some of the music from this film.  And I talk briefly about a few other geeky topics – like my current Patreon fund raising effort.  You can learn all about that HERE.  Then it’s on to the main topic for this week – the TNG episode.

The season six TNG episode called “Realm of Fear” centers both on Lt. Barclay and also on the transporter too.  While investigating another Star Fleet ship, Barclay experiences something very strange during transport.  At first he thinks it’s just his fear and possibly a psychotic episode he is having but soon learns more is going on with him after the transporter incident.  This is a cool episode and we get to see some interesting stuff about what it must feel like to “beam” via the transporter.  I love the character of Barclay too and he gets used very well in this episode.  Hope you enjoy my commentary on this one.

That’s it for this weekend.  Next week the Moyers will be here with a special ‘Geeky Mother’s Day’ show for all of you.  Until then take care of yourself and enjoy the week ahead.

Podcast # 536 – “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” – 1504.26

Mark is back this week with a look at another classic Sci-Fi film from the past.  This time out it’s the 1959 film, “Angry Red Planet.”  Here are some words from Mark about his latest classic film review.

Hello Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels for the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  
Today’s podcast is a tribute to Ib Melchior.  He was a screenwriter and director of low budget science fiction movies.  He passed away last month at the age of 97.  Today the movie is “The Angry Red Planet” from 1959.  Starring:  Gerald Mohr, Nora Hayden, Jack Kruschen and Les Tremayne. 
I hope you enjoy it.  Take care everyone!  This is M-5 signing off…
Thanks again Mark for another cool blast from the past.  Next week, I will be her ewith Kenny as we review our next Potter film, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”  Until next time, take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 534 – “Daedalus” – 1504.12

A classic style show this week on the podcast covering an Enterprise episode and some geek news too.  First up, we have a new Facebook Group for Treks in Sci-Fi right HERE.  The previous group was having problems – couldn’t post, comment, etc. so I created a new group.  Please make sure to join us there.  I talk about the excellent “Daredevil” series on Netflix that I’m loving so far.  A very gritty, dark, real, and violent Marvel show – but one done very well.  I’m only a few episodes in but I’m enjoying it a lot.  I talk about some casting news for the next Trek film and I also talk about the digital release of the “Star Wars” movies too.  Then it’s on to the Trek episode for this week.

The Enterprise episode “Daedalus” is from season 4 and I like this one quite a bit.  We learn more about the inventor of the transporter and how he comes aboard the Enterprise to try to save his son lost in a transporter accident years ago.  It’s an interesting episode, with some great guest actors and cool stuff.  I do an audio commentary as I watch the episode with all of you.  That’s about it for this week.  Mark will be here next weekend with a look at the classic SF film, “Angry Red Planet.”  Make sure to tune in then and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 533 – Growing Up Geek – 1504.05

This week we have a special show for all of you.  I got together with Jen & Angela from the Anomaly Podcast via Skype a couple of days ago to talk about growing up as geeks.  We share stories about how we first became geeks and got interested in geeky things – like “Star Trek” and other interests.  We also talk about being parents and showing our children all the cool geeky stuff that is out there.  It was fun to talk to Jen & Angela about this and we had a great time.  We each had different experiences growing up as geeks and each share some cool stories too.  I hope you enjoy this show and a big thanks to Jen & Angela for talking to me about this.  Make sure to check out their Anomaly Podcast too – now weekly!  I will be back next weekend with a look at the Enterprise episode, “Daedalus” along with some other geek news & info.  Until then take care and enjoy your week ahead.
