Morgan takes Tom back to the early 1990s and through some of his favourite Sega Mega Drive games, including Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe and Sonic the Hedgehog. Tom also educates Morgan about the horrific Shaq Fu and how it may have influenced 50 Cent.
Beer choice: Innis & Gunn lager (reference – err, because there are some guns in Sega games)
Tom helps Morgan refresh his memory of the good old days of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and try not to have our childhoods ruined by shoddy production, racist undertones and dodgy spandex suits. We also discuss the ‘classic’ movie, its many TV spinoffs and the future film.
Beer choice: Doom Bar (reference – Rita Repulsa’s impending doom. Yeah, we know.)
Morgan and Tom hark back to the good old 1990s and the forgotten gem that was Sliders starring Jerry O’Connell. Well, it was a gem until the third season onwards when Fox ruined it. We find out just what went wrong with a brilliant sci-fi premise, including exclusive audio from John Rhys-Davies!
Beer choice this time: Old Mout Cider – as ciders rhymes with Sliders.
Our third mini episode comes after we’ve seen the latest MCU blockbuster – Captain America: Civil War. We bang on about how we hate Bucky, why we love Spider-Man and Black Panther and how spoiled we all our nowadays.
Ahead of our next full episode about Sliders – here’s our quick take on the current Marvel Cinematic Universe situation: Doctor Strange trailer (and whether Benedict Cumberbatch can be arsed), Captain America: Civil War preview (why does everyone care about bloody Bucky) and Spider-Man: Homecoming (why it could be awesome).
NOTE: This episode was recorded before certain MCU spoilers were released.
To tide you over until our next episode, we’ve made a couple of podlets! These will be very short episodes about current pop culture events that we simply had to discuss/moan about.
The first one is all about The Walking Dead finale with Negan and the return of spinoff Fear the Walking Dead. We reveal our annoyance of bitpart characters and how we predict season 7 will be like South Park.
