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 194

SDCC starts TODAY, and there's already been some major Transformers news! So join Glenn, Sam and Phil as they find out what that could be, and share in their joy and happiness, because it's all very exciting this time around!

They also spotlight the British superhero amazement and weirdness that is Bananaman, and discuss some of the more conventional superhero stories that may be coming out of SDCC this week, as well as a very hopeful TMNT auction, and JJ Abrams' latest Star Wars teaser.

Back to the Eighties - ever alert to the call for action!

When the Music Stops: The Creatures of Skeletor

WTMS makes a welcome return, this time chronicling some of Skeletor's fiendish attempts to take over Castle Grayskull, defeat He-Man and rule over Eternia.

Spoiler: He does none of those things.

His power knows no end!

Episode 193

Phil's back with the team this week, as Becca spotlights an early 90's classic - the satirical newsroom comedy, Drop the Dead Donkey!

Also this week, the BTTE newsroom gets busy, with news coming from TMNT, Transformers, and the new Power Rangers movie.

We also discuss LFCC, CFCC, and the current state of the toy market, including the question of whether EVERYTHING should be a combining robot these days.

16 weeks until CFCC!

Episode 192

Jenny from World of Crap joins us again this week, and together with Becca, Jii and Glenn, goes back to a simpler time when a man could live with an anthropmorphic bear, a pink hippo and a magically animated rugby ball and no-one would bat an eyelid. Yes folks, this week we're spotlighting Rainbow.

We also have all the news that matters, including MOTU, Transformers and even some Andersonia, as well as a good discussion of a Red Dwarf nature. Smoke me a kipper.

1 WEEK UNTIL LFCC.
