Podcast 164: Two Spocks Fit All



Boy, there sure are a lot of episodes of people growing and shrinking this time around. Anyway, six more of Star Trek: The Animated Series. Growth, shrinkage, and sabotage. Dang, maybe that should've been the title this time. Hey, do you remember that old SNL skit with Phil Hartman and Tom Hanks called "Giant Businessman?" Can't find it on the NBC site or YouTube. Anyway, it pretty much ripped off "The Infinite Vulcan."

Oh hey, Angela joins up again to help us remember stuff.

Podcast breakdown:
0:00 -- nuqneH, Super Bowl, He-Man
5:44 -- "The Infinite Vulcan"
11:49 -- "The Magicks of Megas-Tu"
22:23 -- "Once Upon a Planet"
29:53 -- "Mudd's Passion"
38:10 -- "The Terratin Incident"
44:30 -- "The Time Trap"
52:45 -- Awards and rankings
1.20:56 -- Next episode predictions
1.32:59 -- Next movie podcast and a bit of Star Wars
1.35:46 -- Qapla' and outtakes

Sounds like it wasn't a recording during "The Time Trap," but click here anyway to hear Shatner saying "sabotage."

Podcast 162: Flight of the Nanu-gator


Disney movies! Instead of Star Trek, we're takin' a break and talkin' three live-action Disney movies -- The World's Greatest Athlete, The Island at the Top of the World and Flight of the Navigator.

Lemme use this text space to mention a few things I forgot to mention. Jane tells Nanu to put his hands around her head for kissing and that's the wrong place! According to Watts in Some Kind of Wonderful, "it doesn't depend -- they go on her hips." I've always abided by this rule.

Sorry about constantly saying "Island on Top of the World" rather than the proper "Island AT THE Top of the World."

Podcast breakdown:
0:00 -- nuqneH
3:24 -- The World's Greatest Athlete
26:06 -- The Island at the Top of the World
42:17:37 -- Flight of the Navigator
1.21:23 -- Awards and rankings
1.52:31 -- Next movie podcast planning
1.59:54 -- A touch of Rogue One
2.12:37 -- Qapla' and outtakes
