Hosted by Glenn and Phil, this podcast is a virtual trip back in time to the halcyon days of our childhood - the 1980s (and early 1990s). Every week we explore at least one facet of 80's pop culture, discuss questions from our listeners, and report the news from at least 4 of the main franchises of the 80's that are still around today!
Episode 111

It's very nearly time for Auto Assembly, and this episode sees Phil and Glenn discuss what you're going to get signed at this year's convention, as well as all the lovely things you'll be buying there this year - 'citing!

Also, all the important news from SDCC and TFCon, as well as questions answered, and a little discussion about the 'lympics. Have you been bitten by the Olympic dog?

Episode 110

This week, it's time for Phil to take the spotlight, and tell us all about T-Bag (titter ye not). Yes T-Bag, the evil witch who was the scourge of kid's TV for 7 years through the 80's and 90's! Be afraid. Be very afraid. And hide the teasmade.

Also, it was Joecon, so expect a bumper news crop this week, along with some quite frankly scary Thundercats news, some great and not so great news from the Transformers universe, and some blimmin' expensive news from Spook Central!

We also answer a question about football mascots - just in time for Glenn to go on his holidays!

Movie Commentary: Batman Forever (1995)

Riddle me this: when is a Tim Burton Batman movie not a Tim Burton Batman movie? When it's Batman Forever!

After the dark love letter to German expressionist cinema that was Batman Returns, things get a little lighter with a new director, and a new cast in Batman Forever! Please join Glenn and Dave as they try and convince you that, unlike the next film, this one can be just as dark as the previous Batman movies, and has as much, if not more to say about the Dark Knight as they do!

Trust us, we're nerds.
