Podcast # 728 – “Game of Thrones – 1905.22

Chris and I got together last night over Skype to talk all about “Game of Thrones.”  The series has now ended and we wanted to discuss the series, how it began in books, the controversial season 8 and of course the finale and how it all worked out for Westeros.  Of course, they are spoilers in this one so you have been warned.  It’s a fun, somewhat rambling conversation but I think you will really enjoy it.  Thanks to Chris from the “Star Wars Stacks” podcast for joining me.

Cool tribute video here:

This coming weekend I plan to do a vidcast all about the 2019 Motor City Comic Con that was just last weekend.  Until next time take care and enjoy the weekend coming up!

Podcast # 727 – Streaming – 1905.12

This week a casual type of show where I talk about some streaming services and the kind of content I’m enjoying lately.  I first cover what’s been happening lately for me (including my recent laptop repair experience with Dell) and a few other topics.  Then I move on to covering streaming geeky content out there and what I’ve been enjoying.  Services such as DC Universe, CBS All-Access, Netflix, Prime, Hulu and others offer a ton of content and I talk about what I’ve been enjoying.  I give a few suggestions and recommended shows you might want to check out when you can.  Just so much great stuff to watch these days it’s hard to keep up with it all.

That’s about it for this week.  Next week should be a guest host as I will be at the annual Motor City Comic Con.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 726 – DISCO AVENGERS – 1904.30

This week it’s a fun SKYPE chat with Rico, Angela (from the Anomaly Podcast), Rick, and Joe (from the Upper Memory Block Podcast).  We got together just last night to finally talk about season two of “Star Trek: Discovery.”  We also talk about the new film, “Avengers: Endgame” too.  There are some spoilers in this podcast but we try to avoid and major spoilers (especially when talking endgame).  We each share our thoughts on the most recent season of Trek – what we liked and some things we didn’t like so much.  And we talk about what might be instore for us in season three.  Then we talk Endgame and talk about this latest blockbuster MARVEL film that kind of wraps up about 11 years and 22 films in this super successful series.  It’s a great chat and I want to thank my friends for join me this time on Skype.

I might be taking next weekend off but the podcast will be back on May 12th with a new show!

Podcast # 725 – Jedi Jeff – 1904.21

Guest host Jedi Jeff returns this week with a nice roundup of a few recent geeky topics.  He first talks about the season finale for season two of “Star Trek: Discovery” (no spoilers).  Jeff also talks about some things from last weekend’s “Star Wars: Celebration” such as the panel on “The Mandalorian” TV series.  He also comments on the new Disney “Galaxy’s Edge” theme park and some collectible talk too.  Always enjoy listening to Jeff do a guest podcast and this one is a good listen.  Thanks Jeff!

Next weekend I will be back with a mega Skype chat covering season two of “Discovery” and also a little commentary on “Avengers: Endgame” as well.  Should be a fun show!  Until next time enjoy your week and take care.

Podcast # 724 – “Q2” – 1904.14

This week the big geek news is the trailer to “Episode IX: The Return of Skywalker.”  But first up this week I do a commentary on the seventh season episode of Voyager called “Q2” and talk about other topics too.

The Voyager episode this week that I cover features Q and Q’s son – also called Q.  It’s a fun episode and comments on raising children and a few other lessons too.  And it’s always great to see John de Lancie as Q once again (his last appearance actually as Q in Trek).  Hope you enjoy my commentary.

The new trailer for the next “Star Wars” film looks amazing and great of course.  That title is a shocker too.  I hope they end the saga on a high note but I have a feeling this won’t be the last we see of some of these characters.  I will post the trailer below for you too.

Next week Jeff will be here with a guest cast.  Until then take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 723 – “Beyond the Time Barrier” – 1904.07

This week classic movie buff Mark is back with another cool movie.  He switched to covering “Beyond the Time Barrier” from 1960 and this is a cool film.  Here are some words from Mark about this movie.

What’s happening everybody?
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  I know you were expecting Logan’s Run, but I found a classic sci-fi B-movie on my DVD shelf.  It’s Beyond the Time Barrier, starring Robert Clarke, Darlene Tompkins, Vlad Sokoloff and John Van Dreelen.  It’s sci-fi schlock at it’s best!  I hope you enjoy it!
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie.
Until then…
This is M-5 signing off…
Thanks Mark!  One fun thing about this film is it involves time travel to the year 2024 (only 5 years from now).  Fun stuff!
I’ll be here next week with with a look at the Trek Voyager episode, “Q2.”  Until next time take and enjoy your week!


Podcast # 722 – Book Talk – 1903.31

This week on the podcast I talk about books.  First, I cover some recent TV & movies I’ve been watching and enjoying (yeah, not enjoying you “Walking Dead”).  Cover a few other things related to conventions coming up this year then it’s on to the main topic.

I’ve always been a big reader and in recent years I’m getting more reading done via Audible that really helps on my long drives each day.  I talk about how I got into reading at a young age and some of the classics I read.  Then I go into some of my favorites from the last few years and play some audio clips from the books too.  It’s always fun to cover books and I hope I get you excited enough to check out some of the titles I mention this week.

Next weekend Mark will be here with a guest cast and I’ll be back in couple weeks with another show.  Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 721 – Irish Trek – 1903.17

Today I woke up and decided to do a special St. Patrick’s Day podcast covering the main Irish characters that have been seen in various “Star Trek” series over the years.  I thought it would be a fun topic to cover.  I also talk about some recent travel and what I watched on the plane during my trip.  Hope you all enjoy this special and somewhat shorter than normal podcast.

Next week might be a skip week, but I will get to that book podcast very soon.  Until next time take care and enjoy the week ahead.
