Sapphire & Steel

Tom and Morgan have been assigned to dissect the cult sci-fi/fantasy TV classic, Sapphire & Steel!

In this episode, Morgan teaches Tom all about the ITV drama that ran from 1979 to 1982, starring Joanna Lumley and David McCallum.

In the episode, we discuss:

  • NCIS star David McCallum's surprising influence on hip-hop
  • How all this time, Tom thought it was a buddy cop drama, getting it confused with Dempsey and Makepeace
  • Morgan trying to explain the plot to Tom is met with the response 'what do you mean, though?' at least three times
  • Why you can't run a museum in this show's universe
  • How they have possibly better powers than Superman and Batman combined

Clips used:

  • Sapphire & Steel (ITV)
  • David McCallum & David Axelrod - 'The Edge' (Capitol)

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.
