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!

Leigh's co-hosting again this week, and she's chosen to spotlight one of the best and most influential comdies of the 1980s - The Young Ones!

We'll be taking a look at Scumbag College's finest, their influence on the comedies that came later, and of course, praising the god-like genius that was Lord Sir Rik of Mayall.

You utter, utter, utter, utter bastards.

Engage!

This week sees Glenn joined by one of the biggest Star Trek fans he knows - Mr Tony Thrustle - to talk about the Enterprise crew that came to be loved perhaps even more than the originals - we of course mean the crew from Star Trek: The Next Generation!

Grand.

It's a triumphant return for When The Music Stops, this time with a visit to Eternia, where Stratos and his wife Delora (yes, in Ladybird continuity she's his wife and not his sister) are being menaced by the Evil Lord of Destruction himself - Skeletor!

(Also, "Captain Blue" Ed Bishop is narrating. Also, he says "Avion" with a French inflection. This whole story is weird.)

It's all about the First Doctor this week - the Original, you might say. From his possible early days on Gallifrey, to kidnapping teachers and almost murdering cavemen, to heartbreaking goodbyes of loved ones (and Chesterton) and his last days as more of a kindly Edwardian gentleman, Leigh and Glenn examine it all!

Dead or alive, you're coming with us...to spotlight one of the best and cleverest action movies of the 1980s!

Joining Glenn this week is Duncan from Podcast in a Half Shell, as they discuss not only how awesome Robo himself is, but also how Paul Verhoeven took what could so easily have been a no-brain actioner, and made one of the sharpest satires of our time.

Thank you for your co-operation.
