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!
Christmas Special 2015

Merry Christmas, gang!

And we're sorry. We're so, SO sorry. But it had to be done. With Star Wars and Christmas practicallly coinciding this year, we decided that we'd do a commentary of 1978's Star Wars Holiday Special.

This is the only audio that survived the event.

Happy Holidays, people.

Episode 246 - Horror Beyond Imaginiation

It's nearly Episode VII time (2 sleeps in the UK!) so it's high time that we looked at the last of the original Star Wars trilogy movies, Return of the Jedi!

Join Glenn, Paula and Sam as they look into the history of the movie, at some of the trivia surrounding it, and share their personal memories of the movie.

They also look forward to the next installment of the Star Wars saga, as well as give their first thoughts on some of the new trailers hitting our screens such as TMNT, Independence Day, and appropriately enough, Star Trek Beyond!

Episode 245 - Empire State of Mind

Glenn's back, and in the mood to talk some Star Wars!

This time, the gamg takes a look at the difficult second movie, The Empire Strikes Back, it's making, inception, the trivia surrounding the movie, and the reasons why it's generally considered to be the best of the bunch.

After the break, it's all about the prequels (no Rebels), and it would seem that life reflects art, as a Rebel Alliance who don't like them, strive to take on the evil Empire that does...
