Episode 55: Legend

Following on from our Labyrinth/Dark Crystal episode, Tom completes his trio of childhood ’80s fantasy movies by taking Morgan through the history of Ridley Scott’s 1985 epic Legend starring Tom Cruise and Tim Curry.

We explore the insane techniques used to make the movie, Tim Curry’s iconic performance, TWO cracking soundtracks and why it didn’t exactly stand the test of time.

Note: This episode was recorded before the sad passing of Blade Runner star Rutger Hauer.

Episode 44: Gerry Anderson Special (with Jamie Anderson)

Anything can happen in the next… two hours or so.

In this very special episode, Tom and Morgan interview Jamie Anderson, the son of the late, great Gerry Anderson, the head of Anderson Entertainment, and producer of many Big Finish audio productions.

Meeting at a pub in London, we chat about the history of Gerry Anderson’s amazing body of work, including Thunderbirds, Stingray, Terrahawks, Captain Scarlet and more.

Three Geeks… Three Beers!

We discuss who is the best Tracy brother, why Troy Tempest is a rogue, why Joe 90 is a bit of a little git, and what Gerry Anderson really thought of Team America.

Jamie also reveals what’s still to come from keeping his father’s legacy going, including the very exciting Firestorm reboot.

Episode 43: Ranking the Sherlocks

Elementary, dear listener…

For this episode, Tom and Morgan pick three actors who have played Sherlock Holmes, before agreeing on an overall ranking of the very best on-screen Sherlocks of all time.

We also discuss a few honourable mentions, the difference between a ‘bumbling’ or ‘capable’ Watson and the politics of the deerstalker hat.

The actors we focus on are:

  • Basil Rathbone
  • Peter Cushing
  • Robert Downey Jr
  • Robert Stephens
  • Benedict Cumberbatch
  • Jeremy Brett

Episode 41: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Tom takes Morgan through the ENTIRE history of the TMNT universe – the comics, the TV series, the movies, the merch and more. (In hindsight, maybe we should have just done the 1987 series!).

We discuss which Turtle is best, why Elias Koteas is so cool, whether Tom’s Winter Olympic Turtle was real or not, and just how weird the latest Splinter looks.

So grab a slice of pizza and settle down, it’s going to be an epic ride…

Episode 40: Bruce Lee

“Be water, my friend”

Time for a history lesson on another movie icon, and this time it’s martial arts legend Bruce Lee, who died 45 years ago this July.

Morgan takes noob Tom for a travel back through Bruce’s life, movie career, and even death…

We tackle everything from mistitled US versions of his films, the dodgy Bruceploitation movies, and bizarre video games based around his image.
