Podcast # 706 – Tribute to Stan Lee – 1811.18

This week was going to be a guest cast or repeat show, but I just had to do a podcast to pay tribute to Marvel legend, Stan Lee.  Comics and Marvel have meant a lot to me over the years and I try to pay tribute and also talk a bit about Stan and the Marvel legacy.  These are not just comic books and comic book characters he helped to create and work on but they are a positive influence on many people with their themes and ideals.  So, I hope you enjoy my podcast this week and my comments about Stan and what he helped to build and create.

I’ll be back next weekend with a look at a couple more Discovery episodes.  Until then take care and enjoy your week (and a Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the US).

Podcast # 705 – DC Animated Films 2 – 1811.11

This week I do a second part to my look at the DC Animated Film series.  I last looked at these films back in 2014 on Podcast #473.  This week I look at the last half of the current run of DC animated films that have some out so far.  I start the show talking about some recent TV and movies I have seen.  Then I get into these DC animated films.  I cover about a dozen movies in the series and play trailers for several of them.  There’s quite a few that are great movies here and I hope a few peak your interest.  You can get most of these films in an epic collection HERE on Amazon.  Again, a great set of films and all worth watching.

Next week will be a guest cast and in two weeks I will be back with a look at another couple of Discovery episodes.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Vidcast # 704 – Halloween LIVE Show – 1810.28

I did a special LIVE Twitch Halloween vidcast today where I talked about some of my favorite Halloween movies.  All of the films are very good and worth watching too.  If you missed the LIVE cast you can still watch it in two different places.  On Twitch at this LINK HERE (some audio is missing on music videos).  Or you can watch below on my Vimeo channel.  Hope you enjoy this show and Happy Halloween to all!


Podcast # 703 – “Mysterious Island” – 1810.21

This week Mark is back with another classic film.  This time it’s “Mysterious Island” from 1961.  Here are some thoughts from Mark about this cult classic film.

This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction  movie.  This week I’m going to cover  “Mysterious Island”, starring Michael Craig, Joan Greenwood, Michael Callan, Beth Rogan, Gary Merrill and Herbert Lom.  If you like Ray Harryhausen you are going to love today’s podcast!  This is a fun movie and I’ve enjoyed this movie since I was a kid.  I hope you all enjoy it!
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction.
Until then…
Everyone take care…
This is M-5 signing off.
Thanks again Mark for another cool guest spot.  Next week I will be back with a special streaming Halloween vidcast on Twitch.  My plan right now is to stream starting at 2pm eastern time on October 28th on my Twitch Channel.  Be there for some Halloween fun!

Podcast # 702 – “Discovery Pilot” – 1810.14

Hi folks!  This week I’m back with a classic style show as I cover the first two episodes of season one of of “Star Trek: Discovery” that basically serve as the pilot for the series.  I first talk a bit about my recent TV and movie watching as the new TV season has begun.  I also give a brief, spoiler free review of the new movie “Venom” that I just saw last night.  Lots of geek stuff going on these days as we head more into fall.

Then I get into the first two episodes of DISCO.  The first episode is called “The Vulcan Hello” and the second episode “Battle at the Binary Stars” which I cover quickly with some audio clips and comments from me.  I feel these episodes introduce the series well, but are actually a lot different than other episodes from season one.  But it’s fun to go back and look at these episodes again and I do enjoy them.  

That’s about it for this week.  Next week should be a guest podcast and I will return in two weeks with a special Halloween vidcast.  Until next time, take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 701 – “Ferengi Marauder with Jedi Jeff” – 1810.07

This week Jedi Jeff is back in the center seat with a cool new podcast.  Jeff looks at in detail the Ferengi Marauder ship as first seen in TNG.  He talks about details of the ship and other fun facts.  Jeff also talks about the recent announcement about the now filming new live action “Star Wars” TV series called “The Mandalorian” that looks to be very western in style and obviously focuses in on the Mandalorians.  Jeff also discusses his huge, UCS Millennium Falcon ship that he has been building for some time now.  Big thanks to Jeff for doing this week’s guest spot.

Next week I will be here to talk about the first two “Star Trek: Discovery” episodes from season one as we move closer to season two (a new season two trailer just came out HERE).  Take care until next time and enjoy your week.

Vidcast # 700 – BIG Show Number 700 – 1809.30

This week it’s big show number 700!  I did another LIVE streaming show on Twitch.  You can find that on Twitch HERE (for a short time) or watch it below on Vimeo too.  I really have enjoyed doing these shows for over 13 years now and hope you have enjoyed them too.  I talk about some cool and classic scenes in Trek during this vidcast and also read you kind of a kids Trek book too.  Anyway, thanks for watching and tuning in all these many years for those who have been around for awhile – you Rock!!!

Next week will be a guest cast.  If you want to support the show go to PATREON HERE.  Thanks again and have a great week!!

Podcast # 699 – “Wing Commander” – 1809.23

This week it’s a guest podcast about the “Wing Commander” games.  Joe from the “Upper Memory Block Podcast” is joined by Brian from the “Space Game Junkie Podcast” to talk all about “Wing Commander II” and other games in this classic series.  I do miss the “Wing Commander” games and these guys have a fun talk all about the games.  There is a brief bit of adult language in this show – just so you know.

Next week will be big, show number 700 and I’m going to stream a LIVE show on Twitch again for that.  Probably be on Sunday, September 30th in the afternoon (watch the Facebook Group for details HERE).  You can find me on Twitch as Ricotrek HERE.
