Defenders of the Earth

Episode 4 sees Morgan teach Tom all about 1980s cartoon Defenders of the Earth!

We discuss everything from Flash Gordon’s dark storylines, failed Billy Zane movies and the potential DOTE cinematic universe.

Known for its downright incredible intro theme tune (with lyrics credited to Stan Lee), Defenders of the Earth ran for just one season from 1986, but one with 65 (!) episodes in total.

Set in the year 2015, it followed an Avengers-style teamup of comic characters Flash Gordon, The Phantom, Mandrake the Magician and Mandrake’s assistant Lothar. Their main enemy was the evil Ming the Merciless. He was merciless, after all.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
