Podcast # 603 – “The Omega Man” – 1609.25

This week our classic Sci-Fi movie buff Mark is back to cover an awesome cult classic from 1971 called, “The Omega Man.”  Here are some words from Mark about this cool movie.

Hello Everybody!
 
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  Today I’m going to look at the cult classic “The Omega Man.”  It stars Charlton Heston, Rosalind Cash and Anthony Zerbe.  This movie is a blend of science fiction and Blaxploitation.  It’s a great movie and I hope everyone enjoys the podcast.  I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction.
 
Until then…
This is Mark Daniels signing off…
Big thanks to Mark for covering this great movie.  I’ll be here next week with a special podcast with my friend Jen where we talk Trek.  Take care until then and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 602 – Trek 50th – 1609.18

This week it’s a bit of a casual chat about what “Star Trek” has meant to me over the years.  The planned show about Trek pilot episodes will still happen in a few weeks.  I’ve been busying with remodeling my garage so this week I felt like casually talking about my early days with Trek.  Those were some fun times.  Making everything ourselves – props, costumes, set pieces, scripts, etc. and going to cons and just loving TOS so much – still do.  I recount some stories from those days and talk about some of my early memories revolving around Trek.  This podcast was a fun nostalgic trip down memory lane.  I hope you enjoy this special episode – I know I had a good time.

Next week our resident classic Sci-Fi film man Mark will be here with a look at the classic film, “The Omega Man.”  Until then take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 601 – More Ships – 1609.11

This week guest host Jedi Jeff is back with another cool look at various Sci-Fi ships.  I always enjoy Jeff’s ship style shows and this is a good one.  Here are some comments from Jeff about his latest guest spot.

On the show Jeff talks about the USS Franklin that was featured in the recent “Star Trek Beyond” movie. Jeff shares some details and trivia on the ship and give his thoughts about it. As well Jeff talks about the Tie Striker and the U-Wing ships that will be appearing in the upcoming “Star Wars Rogue One” movie coming out in December, and some early details on them. Jeff also talks about some collectibles for these ships that will be coming out from different licensees for Star Trek and Star Wars. Jeff also briefly touches on the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.

Big thanks to Jeff for doing this latest guest spot.  I will be back next weekend with a look at the various pilot episodes of “Star Trek: from the various series.  Until then take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 600 – LIVE 11th Anniversary Vidcast – 1609.06

For this special 11th Anniversary podcast/vidcast I recorded a LIVE show via Ustream yesterday.  I talked about the 50th Anniversary of “Star Trek” and some significant event in Trek history as well as doing this podcast for 11 years.  I also did a couple of contests for those that joined in watched the Live streaming show.  I did save the show and you can view most of it below (I did about a 30 minute pre-show too and I only included the last few minutes of the pre-show in this video).  I really enjoy doing these shows and wished more people were able to show up for the Live part – but I know folks are busy sometimes.  Anyway, enjoy the show down below (also on Youtube HERE) and Jedi Jeff will return with a new guest podcast next weekend.  Until then take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 599 – Skype Trek – 1608.29

Yesterday I recorded a fun Skype chat with several friends of the podcast.  We got together to talk about mainly summer films – especially “Star Trek Beyond” and a few others.  We also touched on the cool Netflix series “Stranger Things” and a few others topics.  Had a little power problem near the end of the show, but still a great time.  Big thanks to Jen, Angela, Bryan, Joe, and Rick Moyer for joining in on the fun!  You all rock!

Next week on Labor Day, Monday September 5th I will be doing my annual LIVE vidcast for show #600 and eleven years of doing the podcast.  The topic will be 50 years of “Star Trek.”  There will be contests, prizes and maybe some Rico dancing too!  Watch the Facebook group for the exact time and other info but I think it will be around 6-7pm EDT via Ustream again.  So, enjoy the rest of your week folks.

Podcast # 598 – King Arthur – Part Two – 1608.14

This week guest host Dave is back with his second part of his look at the legend of King Arthur.  This time out Dave covers King Arthur in movies and TV.  He covers some favorite appearances of this character and some to come still too.  A big thanks once again to Dave for both of his great podcasts.

I’m reworking the schedule a bit for the next couple of weeks since I’m probably not going to the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con (although I still might do that).  If I don’t go we will definitely be having a Skype chat soon about summer movies.  But as always, enjoy your week and come back soon to listen to the next Trek in Sci-Fi podcast!  If you like the show, consider supporting the podcast on Patreon HERE.  Thanks everyone for listening.

Podcast # 597 – “The Chase” – 1608.07

This week on the podcast it’s a classic style show once again.  I do an audio commentary on the sixth season TNG episode called “The Chase.”  But first, I give a mainly spoiler free review of the new “Suicide Squad” movie (preview – I liked it).  I talk about the film and give you my thoughts about why the critics are really wrong on this one.  I also talk some about the TV I’m watching (like “Stranger Things” on Netflix).  Then it’s on to the Trek episode.

The episode of TNG called “The Chase” is a pretty different type of episode.  It’s very straight forward and doesn’t have a “B story” either.  We get a different side of Picard and I like this one.  It’s an interesting idea and one that Trek has touched on a few times over various series.  Hope you like hearing the episode and my commentary.

Next week Dave will be back with part two of his King Arthur podcast series.  I might be switching up my plans after that show a little as I’m not sure I’ll be going to Wizard World in Chicago again this year due to a few things.  Anyway, thanks for listening once again everyone and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 596 – King Arthur – 1607.31

This week, new guest host Dave takes us on a journey through the legend and history of King Arthur.  Dave has a lot of knowledge on this fascinating character and delves in deep on this subject.  He plans to follow up this show with a second part a couple weeks from now.  So, I hope you enjoy this cool show and big thanks to Dave for putting a cool guest spot together for us.

I will return next week with a look at the TNG episode called “The Chase.”  Until then take care and enjoy your week.
