Podcast 166: Static Cling-ons


Time for another movie podcast! This time it's a very specific type of time travel -- something we call "static timeline" time travel. It's where time travel happens, but the timelines are set and no splintering timelines are created. Anyway, the time culprits are Somewhere in Time, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey and Primer. The podcast runs about two hours, but if you want to save time just say out loud that you'll plan on listening in the future and then go back in time after you actually listen. Btw, pretty sure Primus performed "Tommy the Cat," not "Making Plans for Nigel" during the Battle of the Bands. Sorry for being so darn confusing, but that's the only confusing thing about the show this time around.

Podcast breakdown:
0:00 -- nuqneH
5:19 -- Somewhere in Time
51:27 -- Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey
1.22:09 -- Primer
1.52:49 -- Awards and rankings
2.16:19 -- Next movie podcast category winner and more time travel
2.29:05 -- Qapla' and outtakes

Podcast 165: So Many Space Cats


So we wrap up season 1 of The Animated Series. That means we're SORT OF halfway done with the series! Of course, when we say "sort of," we really mean very nearly totally done on account of the first season having waaaay more eps than the second. Anyway, as the title suggests, SPACE CATS!

Hey, Jon keeps saying "David" Niven, but it's obviously really "LARRY" Niven. David Niven is that guy in The Guns of Navarone.

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
