Podcast # 809 – Top 80’s SF Films – 2102.28

Mark is back this week guest hosting with his top 10 Sci-Fi movies from the 1980’s. Here are some words from the man himself on his latest podcast.

Hello Everybody! This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another science fiction movie countdown.  This week I’ll be counting down movies from the 1980s.  My list includes movies featuring aliens, deadly replicants, a space sheriff, video games, and time travel.  These movies are my top ten movies of that decade and all of them are fun to watch.  I hope you all enjoy it!  I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie.  Until then, take care of yourselves and stay healthy! This is M-5 signing off…

Big thanks to Mark for another great guest cast. Next I will be back with a look at the Wonder Woman franchise from comics to TV to films. Take care until then and stay safe.

Podcast # 808 – “Vulcan Hello” – 2102.21

This week I look back with full audio commentary on the first episode of Discovery. First up I talk about the wacky weather in a lot of the South right now – hope it improves soon. Then I cover some recent movies and TV I’ve been watching and then on to the main topic for the week.

The first episode of DISCO called “The Vulcan Hello” is interesting to watch again after more than 3 years. It’s fun to see how the characters have developed and changed over time. The show seems quite a bit different back then too than it is now. I comment as I play the whole episode in the background. Hope you enjoy it.

Next week Mark will be here with a guest cast. Until next time, take care and stay safe out there.

Podcast # 807 – TRON Rerun – 2102.14

This week I’m posting up a rerun episode of a podcast done about ten years back in 2011 with Jedi Jeff and me talking all about the “TRON” films. Here is a link to the past show notes, but basically we cover the TRON franchise and of course the films. I love this franchise and I thought if you missed this show the first time this would be a good one to post up again. Enjoy it!

Also, Ryan who is one of the TSF Patreon members won a “Star Trek: Discovery” calendar this week. Congrats Ryan. If you want to support the show, go over to PATREON HERE and sign up.

Next weekend I will be back with doing audio commentary on the very first DISCO episode. Until next time take care and be safe out there.

Podcast # 806 – “The Expanse” – 2102.07

I’m back this week with a new show covering one of the best Sci-Fi series of the past decade and that is “The Expanse.” Before I get into that I talk about other recent things I’m reading and watching to entertain me. Then I move on to the series to cover this week.

“The Expanse” has now had five seasons and it’s so good! I briefly cover all five seasons so far. There are very slight spoilers, but nothing too bad I think if you haven’t seen this awesome show. I hope my coverage gets others to watch and also is a fun recap to those already enjoying this fine show.

Next week will be either a skip week or maybe a repeat show. Hope you all enjoyed the cast this week. Take care and enjoy the week ahead.

Podcast # 805 – Jedi Jeff & LEGOS – 2101.31

This week guest host Jedi Jeff returns with a fun podcast talking about LEGO’s, models, and other things. Specifically Jeff covers some rumored upcoming 2021 “Star Wars” LEGO kits and some recent ones he has been working on. Lynn and I have also been doing a lot of LEGO’s too during this whole COVID lockdown thing over the last year or so. Big thanks to Jeff for another fun show.

Next week I will be back to talk about “The Expanse” which is now wrapping up season 5. Until next time take care and enjoy the week ahead.

Podcast # 804 – 2021 Movie & TV Preview – 2101.24

This week it’s a preview of genre TV & movies for 2021. I first talk about some recent stuff I’ve been watching then I move on to the main topic. Due to dumb COVID, almost all the films from 2020 got pushed forward to come out in 2021 – same with some TV as well. I run down a few of the TV series coming out soon along with the films we should be getting this year. All of this is subject to change, but with vaccines I think by summer we should be in pretty good shape. Just got to hang in there until then.

This week we have a PATREON supporter contest winner to announce. Congrats to them and feel free to support the podcast on PATREON HERE.

Next week Jedi Jeff will be here with a guest cast and I’ll be back in two weeks. Until next time, take care and stay safe!

Podcast # 802 – Discovery Season Three – 2101.10

This week the main topic is a look at season three of “Star Trek: Discovery.” I talk some about other things at first, what I’ve been watching and working on and then it’s on to the main topic – and there are spoilers in this podcast for Discovery.

I really enjoyed this season of Discovery and how it turned out. I cover the later episodes in the season and focus mainly on those and the season finale as well. Some really cool and interesting stuff and looking forward to season 4 (probably in early 2022). I hope others enjoyed this season as much as I did.

That’s it for this week. Next week Vartok will be back with part 2 of his look at the music of James Horner. I’ll be back in two weeks with a look ahead at upcoming TV for 2021 that is starting to come back (finally) now. Until next time, take care and be safe out there!
