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!

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.

Podcast # 720 – Music of “The Orville” – 1903.10

This week it’s a slightly shorter podcast and Vartok is here to cover the music of “The Orville” tv series.  First, I give a spoiler review of the new “Captain Marvel” film which I enjoyed very much.  There are two Vartok music segments in today’s podcast on “The Orville” and I also talk about the series as well.  I little different type of podcast this week and I hope you enjoy it.

Next week I’ll be back with a show about some books that I’ve been enjoying and some of my favorite books of all time too.  Until next time enjoy your week and take care.

Podcast # 719 – Oscars & Sci-Fi – 1903.03

With the recent Academy Awards and Oscars given out I decided to do a podcast talking about how Sci-Fi & Fantasy films have been viewed and handled by the Oscars over the years.  First, I give a spoiler free review of “Alita: Battle Angel” and talk about some other recent and upcoming films and TV.  For the main topic I run through several years of Academy Awards and talk about genre films that have been nominated for various things and what awards have been gathered over the years for genre films.  It’s an interesting topic and with the recent nominations for “Black Panther” maybe we are on the cusp of the Academy paying more attention to these types of films in the future.  

Next week’s show will be a guest spot of a repeat show.  Hope you enjoyed this week’s podcast and take care in the week ahead.

Podcast # 717 – Enterprise “Bound” – 1902.17

This week it’s finally a return to a classic style podcast with a look at the 4th season Enterprise episode called, “Bound.”  First up, I discuss some of the recent genre TV and movies I’ve been watching.  A few comments about the terrible winter here in Michigan and con topics and then on to the main topic for this week.  This Trek episode gives us a good look at the Orion’s as a group of three lovely Orion slave girls come aboard Enterprise.  Of course, trouble starts to happen soon after their arrival and this is a fun episode to watch as the crew deals with these ladies.  I play the episode for all of you and comment as I watch it.

Next week mark will be here with a look at the movie, “The Rocketeer” for all of you.  Until next time enjoy your week and be safe out there.
