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!

Welcome to a new branch of the BTTE tree! This is all about DC Comics, and the love that Glenn and Amy have for them and their massive roster of characters.

Over the coming months we'll be looking at everything DC, including, the movies, TV shows, cartoons, memorabilia and of course, the comic books themselves.

In this first episode, Amy and Glenn have a bit of a natter about why they love DC, their favourite characters, books, TV series and movies, and even profess their great love for a certain Green Lantern villain...

Enjoy!

Paula went to Dimension Jump, the Red Dwarf convention, and she has exciting stories to tell! Tales of adventure, of meeting actors and podcast team members, of dragons and sorcery...the last two might not be true. Or are they?*

The team also have a good old chat about the Boys from the Dwarf, why they like the series so much, their favourite episodes and lines from the show, and why Rimmer is the best character in the history of everything.

So join us, as we go 3 million years into the future, where there is only beer and curries, and everything smells like the inside of a bag of dry roasted peanuts.

*They aren't.

Episode 286 - Between Two Pillows

It's Becca's turn to spotlight this week, and she's chosen to look at perhaps the ultimate John Hughes road movie: Planes, Trains and Automobiles!

We discuss not only that, but Hughes movies in general, and the influence he had on a whole generation of comedy performers from the Eighties right up to now!

Episode 285 - Does Whatever a Spider Can

We head to Marvel's New York City for this week's spotlight, as Sam talks about his favourite superhero - the Amazing Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man!

From the 1981 series, to his team up with some Amazing Friends, to his own animated series, and even when he was Unlimited or Neil Patrick Harris, this episode is full of Spidey!

From Speak'n'Spell to 2XL, from Major Morgan to Teddy Ruxpin, Paula's going to take us down an aural memory lane this week with a spotlight on talking toys of the 1980's!

Becka and Glenn come along for the ride, and chip in their favourites - what are YOUR faves?

Next week: it's Morphin' time!

Jii, Sam and Glenn are joined by Annie and Eddie Palitoy this week, as they discuss not only some of the cartoons that perhaps we're not as nostalgic about as we should be, but they also take a trip down an edible memory lane as they take a look at food from the 80s that we should all be remembering fondly! 

And yes, that includes He-Man jellies.

When the Music Stops: Decepticons at the Pole

This week sees the return of the Transformers to WTMS, and in particular, to a time when Hot Rod and Cyclonus led the Autobots and Decepticons, on Nebulos, at least. Also, many centuries have passed. So Spike = dead. On the plus side, so is Daniel. And Scorponok isn't a sentient being. The Ladybird continuity is weiiiiiiiird.

Episode 202

Back to the Eighties welcomes a very special guest this week, as AJ Locascio, voice of none other than Marty McFly in the Telltale Back to the Future games drops by! Yes folks, one of the few people to play one of our favourite characters is in the house! AJ talks about his role as Marty in the games, how he came to be interested in films to begin with, and even his love of nostalgia (and BTTF, Indiana Jones, Ninja Turtles...the list goes on...) We'd all like to thank AJ for his time and hope that he'd like to come on the show again in the future!

We also have your homework about things you'd like to see INNNNN SPAAAAAAAAAAACE, and also have a good old natter about wrestling. So join us please, as we go Back...to the Eighties.

When the Music Stops: Skeletor's Ice Attack

It's all the way back to Earth year 1984 this week, and another visit to Eternia, to check in on everyone's favourite living skeleton and his struggle against He-Man. It's not going so well, to be honest. So much so, that Skeletor's had to resort to using Mer Man to attack Prince Adam and the Royal Family on their summer holidays. Maybe Skeletor should have used Nicholas Witchell instead. I bet King Randor HATES Nicholas Witchell.

Wotcher! After a week away we're back, and this time we have added extra Chris Vint! He joins Sam and Glenn as they explore the wonderful world of Ulysses 31, and find out whether the eponymous hero really does get to go home, and also whether his crew survive being made as lifeless as stone!

There's also news, lots of news, ALL THE NEWS, from Star Wars and Transformers, and also a 200th episode message from a late'un.

Oh yeah, and also homework: which myth, legend or story could do with the space opera treatment that Ulysses got? Answers on a postcard please, as well as questions for next week's guest, AJ Locascio, famous for providing the voice of Marty Mcfly in Telltale games Back to the Future adventure game!

We made it!

Yes folks, Back to the Eighties is officially 200 episodes old, and Phil, Sam, and Glenn feel like celebrating. So here they are to read out some of the messages we've received from to mark the occasion, as well as mention some of their favourite moments, and why they enjoy making this wonderful show so much.

There's also a smattering of news, but really, that's not what this week is about. So make a nice cup of tea, put your feet up, and enjoy the milk poop.

Thanks for listening.

When the Music Stops: Warlord of Eternia

Hey you! Yes, you! How about a Masters of the Universe story that doesn't have He-Man in it and focuses solely on Skeletor, Beast-Man and Evil-Lyn going back through time to recruit an army...with hilarious consequences!

You want it, you got it. Warlord of Eternia is based on a story from the one-shot Ladybird Masters of the Universe annual, and features only the Evil Warriors on an ill-advised jaunt into the past!

If you recognise the storyteller, then you might be surprised to learn that it's actually Ed Bishop, probably best known for his portrayal of Captain Blue, Captain Scarlet's BFF!

Howdy, pards. This week sees Jii, Phil, Sam and Glenn fixin' on givin' you guys a lesson in lawgivin', using that there Marshal Bravestarr as an example of how to do things RIGHT on New Texas.

They'll also mosey on down through all the news that's worth reportin', not that there's much of that these days. Things just ain't been the same since Tex Hex and his gang ran off with the News Coach that ran through these parts a few months back.

Remember though, next week BTTE hits 200 episodes, and we'd like to hear your favourite parts of the podcast, and what you'd like to hear more of - details in this week's show!

When the Music Stops: Decepticon Hideout

This week we visit the Transformerverse during it's mid-Eighties difficult-second-album phase, as Optimus Prime and Megatron have gone, and in their place stand the New Leaders; Ultra Magnus and Galvatron. This was odd, because these Movie-era Ladybird adventures chose to eschew the movie more or less, and took their cues from the Marvel UK comic that Simon Furman was having so much fun writing at the time.

In this story, the Autobots discover that the Decepticons are constructing a hidden base, very near their own - will they be able to stop them in time, before the Decepticons strike?

When the Music Stops: She-Ra and the Surprise Party

It's Madame Razz's 1009th birthday, and that's cause enough for celebration in the Whispering Woods, and so a huge surprise party is planned! However, is it really a good idea to invite Catra to proceedings? And will Madame Razz find out about the party before the surprise is sprung? 

All these questions and more are answered in this week's When the Music Stops!

We're back! After a month away for holidays, sickness, etc Phil and Glenn return with the podcast that travels back through time in a rose tinted DeLorean! This week, we catch up on all the things we've done in the last month, as well as talk about Guardians of the Galaxy, and of course, what we think of the start of season 8 of Doctor Who, including how we're feeling about the Twelfth Doctor at this point!

There's also all the news that's worth reporting on, and a good discussion about crisps, sweeties, and other things from our favourite decade that probably wouldn't be allowed now because they're too full of e-numbers.

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!

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!

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.

Episode 191

It was Botcon last weekend, so we're having a little bit of a special Newsround this week, as Becca, Sam and Glenn talk about all of the various goings on and amazing announcements at this year's main Transformers Expo.

Becca's also spotlighting the various Sherlock Holmes series made by Granada in the 80's and early 90's, starring the supremely talented and much missed Jeremy Brett.

We also talk about the live television moments that stick in our huge nostalgic brains, as well as a couple of movies we're looking forward to, and of course, the latest announcements from LFCC, which is only TWO WEEKS AWAY.

They also report on all of the news that's worth reporting on this week, such as a great new SDCC set for Transformers, some MAJOR news for MOTU, all the Star Wars news (luckily this week we're not telling Harrison Ford to break a leg) and even some Thunderbirds news!

It's all going on this week, guv'nor.

Episode 189

As promised last week, we have a very special guest on this week's show. It's Jenny from World of Crap, her wonderful nostalgic website that covers all the great 80's experiences from He-Man to Bullseye!

She joins Sam and Glenn as they discuss the wonderful and sometimes bizarre world of 80's daytime telly, which had not yet felt the caress of Jeremy Kyle, nor the taint of Homes Under the Hammer. Good times.

A very big thanks to Jenny for coming on the show this week, and believe me, she will be back!

Sadly, the news is not all good this week, as we've lost a legend. RIP Rik Mayall. Just in case the grown ups ask, that's why the kids are crying.

Episode 188

It's a full compliment this week, as the crew get down and dirty with one of the true iconic TV programmes of the Eighties, Knight Rider! Let's face it, it doesn't GET more Eighties than that.

There's also NEWS! Lots of news. SO MUCH NEWS. From Transformers (where the house is divided on the subject of the SDCC set) to Masters (where Jii clues us all in on a great discovery he's made) to Star Wars (where there's been lots of great developments to Episode VII, including JJ trolling the interwebz) to Ghostbusters (30 years? Really?) and even a bit of TMNT news thrown in for good measure (we still can't wait for this movie).

It's a full show, to be sure. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's BACK TO THE EIGHTIES.

This episode sees Jii, Glenn, Sam and Phil having a good old natter about what they were up to (and what they were buying) whilst BTTE was off the air. The subjects, as always, are eclectic, ranging from Kamen Rider and Power Rangers, to Godzilla and even My Little Pony. Yeah. It gets THAT weird.

There's also all the news that we can possibly cram into a 3 hour podcast, as well as an announcement about this year's Roll Out Roll Call. So what are you waiting for?

You'll have to be very careful with the contents of this week's WTMS. DON'T let it get wet, DON'T expose it to sunlight, and on no account NEVER, EVER feed it after midnight, no matter how much it begs.

Yes folks, it's the Rainbow adaptation of Gremlins!

BTTE Extra with Glenn & Jeremy

Folks, it's time to say hello to an old friend. It's been a while, but Jeremy is back! In what we hope to be a regular monthly feature, he and Glenn are going to be going through the histories of some of our very favourite franchises. and charting their rises, falls, seeing them rise again from the ashes, and assessing where they stand today, and asking the question, "Where do they go from here?"

To start off with, it's the Real American Heroes of GI Joe - YO JOE!

Meanwhile, Phil, Sam and Glenn check out and spotlight the 1978 TV series of the Amazing Spider-Man, and have a bit of a natter as to why that series didn't work but series like The Incredible Hulk and Wonder Woman did.

The guys also check out all of the news that's fit to talk about (including some very interesting Star Wars news), and answer a few of your questions on Facebook!

WTMS: Man-Thing - Night of the Laughing Dead

Hey now, kids. This readalong is important now, for it would seem that this guy is now a part of the Marvel movieverse. Which is good, he's a very cool and interesting character. Embrace the fact, don't be scared.

No really, don't feel fear. Because whatever knows fear, burns at the Man-Thing's touch!

There's also news of all kinds, including updates on Transformers, MOTU, Sectaurs, Gobots and EVEN Thunderbirds and Terrahawks, as well as a smattering of answers to your questions!

There's also all the news that you need to know from all of our favourite franchises, including a look at the full Transformers 4 roster, some interesting MOTU developments, Megan Fox's assurances about April O'Neil, and a discussion about the future of the GI Joe brand - if it even HAS a future.

Also, RIP Warrior. May fiery elephants fly you right on your way to Valhalla. *skronk*

This episode sees Sam, Glenn and Phil go on a trip into the deep dark recesses of their minds, to recant some of the wild and whimsical times they had when they went on school trips, so expect tales of woe from theme parks, historical monuments, museums, and brass rubbing. A crapload of brass rubbing.

Phil and Glenn also bring you the news this week from both Transformers AND Turtles, you lucky people, as well as a LOT of rambling and discussions going off at interesting tangents. Basically, the same mix of informative weirdness you lot have come to expect of us, really.

This week sees the return of our very own Jii, and he's bringing the ultimate war of nerves with him, in the form of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (to be all formal and give it it's full title)!

The team (for there is a full compliment this week, yo) also has a good old rummage in the news bag, with Jii bringing us all the MOTU goodness, Glenn bringing the Transformers noise, Phil updating the TMNT blackboard, and Sam bringing the most amazing news report ever. You heard it here first.

Oh, and we also ramble on a bit like the bunch of old random twats we are.

Episode 178

Back to business this week, as Phil, Becca and Glenn spotlight the wonderment (and by wonderment, I of course mean weirdness and horror) that is TERRAHAWKS, as Anderson month continues!

We also take a look at the new Transformers 4 trailer, and report on all of the other news that comes forth from our favourite franchises this week!

Cybertrax: SOS Dinobots

Well hello there, my amateur paleontologists! Welcome to Jurassic Cybertrax, where Glenn and Mikey explore the dark side of Wheeljack's mindset, as he goes all John Hammond on us and creates three of the biggest, baddest and most dangerous Autobots that you ever did see: the Dinobots!

No really, he spared no expense.

Cybertrax: Fire on the Mountain

After a couple of months away, Cybertrax is BACK!

This week, we take a look at what happened to Jetfire, sorry SKYfire, after he was left to rot by the Autobots, sorry, given a heroes' send off and buried with full honours.

TL; DR - he was turned into a minicab. Also, Megatron has "stress issues".

Today's the first day of Gerry Anderson month, and to kick us off, Becca's spotlighting one of the lesser lauded entries in Anderson oeuvre, the 1970 live action sci-fi series UFO!

Also, joining Jii, Becca and Glenn this week is a special guest. A special guest from another podcast...be excited. And afraid. Very afraid.

Stick with us though, because not only do we have all the news that's fit to discuss, we also take on one of Jii's biggest pet peeeves...

Episode 174

It's back to Illnois in 1980 this week, as Glenn, Phil and Becca spotlight a true Eighties classic - The Blues Brothers!

They also trawl the depths of the news pipe, and prepare to be disappointed as the UK Toy Fair news turns out to be a little lighter than expected, just wait until you find out why!

We have a bonus section too this week dear listener, as we finally get round to answering someof your questions - keep sending them in, BTTE fans!

Stay tuned for next week's episode, as Gerry Anderson month will start with an organ harvesting bang, as Becca wil be spotlighting the 1970 classic series UFO!

This week though, it's back to 1982 for a look at a Japanese puppet show that many of you may have forgotten...not for long!

We also have all the news that's fit to talk about this week, including MOTU news, Transformers Age of Extinction toy news and even convention news which will have Gerry Anderson fans all of a fluster!

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2014! We'd like to start off slowly this year (as everyone does when they go back to work, right?), so Glenn, Phil, Becca and Sam will all regail us with tales of Christmas and what they got for their prezzies!

They also discuss two other very important aspects of Christmas, name Doctor Who and Sherlock and how this year's offerings fared, and how the future might look for these two programmes.

Add in a smidgin of news (because there's not that much) and you have an episode that's full to the brim of rich new year goodness.

Episode 171

It's Christmas at BTTE Towers, and it's time to celebrate by spotlighting that oh-so-staple Christmas gameshow of the 1980s, 3-2-1!

So join Jii, Glenn, Phil and Sam as they delve into the depths of Dusty Bin, and see what weird and wonderful news stories they can dig up, even though it's the Christmas period, and there really isn't much news around.

This is more than likely the last show of 2013, but we'll be back in 2014 to annoy and upset you even more than we have in the last 3 years - yes, we'll be 4 in March 2014.

We'd all like to wish you a happy and bright Christmas, and a brilliant New Year!

Last Saturday saw the Day of the Doctor become a reality, so join Glenn, Phil and Becca as they discuss the main event of the 50th birthday celebrations for Doctor Who, and all of the ramifications and insights into the future that it brought with it. Also, enjoy all of the news this week, including Transformers, Turtles and a good healthy dollop of Robocop.

Back to the Eighties - 8 out of 10 nerdy nostalgic types recommend it!

(NB If you haven't seen Day of the Doctor yet, needless to say this episode is pretty spoilerrific. You have been warned.)

Cybertrax: Divide and Conquer

This week's adventure features not only a trip to Cybertron, not only the one and only appearance of the Rainmakers, NOT ONLY one of the biggest reasons for a HUGE Transformers retcon, but also the first commentary on Cybertrax for Becca! If that's not reason enough to have a listen, then I just don't know what is.

Episode 168

This week we discuss fear - specifically your fear of horror movies or certain scenes from said movies from when you were ickle. Come on, we all know you used to sneak a peak at the horror movies on video or TV - and this is where you finally admit it, and that's the reason you're scared of sharks, alien furballs or angry Jewish ghosts.

We also welcome a special guest on for the second half - but I'm not telling you who that is, suffice to say things get very silly from that point onwards.

We're also reporting all the news that's cool and relevant this week (including some exciting Transformers news, Turtles rumblings and Star Wars firming up) as well as all of the usual banter.

So, join Glenn, Phil & Sam, and remember, don't forget to put on your mask for the great giveaway - keep watching the flashing pumpkin!

MOTU Special

Yes folks, it's time to round off the very loose Masters of the Universe trilogy on Back to the Eighties with a special episode completely dedicated to He-Man, She-Ra, Skeletor and all of the other great characters from Eternia, Etheria and beyond!

Joining me on this retrospective are our good friends Dom Blanco (in his first EVER BTTE appearance), and Chris Vint (in his first BTTE appearance in about two and half years!) Come with us on a journey from the very first baby steps that He-Man took in 1982, all the way through to 200X and remember - if you see Skeletor's face on a bottle, be sure NEVER to drink from it!

This week sees the return of Mr Jii into the mix, just in time to join Glenn and Phil as they spotlight the Masters of the Universe franchise, from the very beginning in 1976, where one of the dumbest business decisions of all time would lead to one of the most lucrative properties of the 1980s, right up until the present day with the Classics line.

We also report on all the news that's worth knowing, and discuss some memories of our favourite decade, including why we love nostalgia so very much!

Episode 165

It's a sad day for us here at BTTE Towers, as we mourn the passing of Filmation legend Lou Scheimer. Lou gave us so many great shows, so it's only fair that we have a bit of a retrospective today. I'm sure we'll also do a more comprehensive tribute somewhere down the line as well.

RIP Lou, and thanks for the memories. You had the power.

We also look at all of the news worth talking about this week, and answer some of your questions.

Episode 163

Greetings, nostalgia fans! Glenn here, apologising for last week's abscence. This week we are back however, so join us, Glenn, Phil, Sam and Jii as we talk about our time away from the podcast, our favourite toys from the 1980s (including a good discussion about Masters of the Universe), and all the news that's fit to talk about in the world of toys.

After a break of one week, we will be back, next time (hopefully) with the comic book special, this time about Marvel UK Transformers!

CyberTrax: MTMTE Episode 1

Ok folks, here it is: the very first episode of my own personal challenge to dvd commentorize (not a real word) EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of G1 animated goodness, INCLUDING all of the Japanese original material! 

Episode one is of coure the first part of the 3-story miniseries that has come to be known "More Than Meets the Eye", and joining me for the next three weeks is a very familiar voice to Transformers DVD commentaries, Mr Chris McFeely himself!

So sit back, relax, and listen to the first of a very, very long series of commentaries, with a real Transformers expert, and that bloke off Back to the Eighties.

If YOU would like to be a part of this, then don't delay! Get in touch with me, today!

Inside the Eighties Studio #4: Grufflock

Yes folks, it's that time of week where I kidnap someone in the nostalgia TARDIS, and whisk them back to their childhoods, to see what makes them tick, and what their most favourite memories of everyone's favourite decade were.

This week, it's Old Oilhouse impresario and man I homage quite often, Grufflock!

Strap yourselves in. It's gonna be a long one.

Yes folks, here it is - the full 36 minute readalong version of the ultimate He-Man/She-Ra experience! 

Listen as Prince Adam is sent to Etheria by the Sorceress, to pick up a very special sword - but wait! Not everything is as it seems on this strange world, as He-Man is enlisted by rebels to fight against the Evil Horde and it's monstrous leader, HORDAK! Not only that, but He-Man discovers that someone very close to him indeed is hiding in plain sight on Etheria, completely unaware of who she is...

There's also all of the news that's worth listening to, including some great news about Masterpiece G2 Sideswipe, interesting developments concerning the new Star Wars movies, and Power Lords becoming more and more essential with every second that passes!

WTMS - Transformers: Laserbeak's Fury

This week sees a tale from the Transformers, and from the spotlight hogging little crittertape himself - Laserbeak!

When Laserbeak gets himself trapped in cassette form while on a routine mission, hi-jinks ensue. Add to that the promise of a non-electrical mechanical device and a village dance, and well, you either have yourselves an exciting Transformers adventure, or the weirdest episode of Frasier EVER.

Episode 160

Welcome one and all, to the 160th episode of Back to the Eighties, where Glenn, Phil and Sam all seem to have bought the same toy this week, and are desperate to wax lyrical about it's awesomess. Whatever could it be?

Sam also spotlights an amazing comedy film from 1983, starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy - Trading Places!

Also, we take a look at all of the news doing the rounds this week including some exciting Turtles news, some great news about a new Star Wars comic coming your way, and all the Transformers and GI Joe news you could shake a stick at, including a Roll Out Roll Call update (tickets now available!)

LOL.

We also ferret out all the news from our favourite franchises, including (for once) Ghostbusters news! Seriously, will that third movie ever get made?

Add to the mix a couple of listener questions, and well, that's a rich enough feast for any King of the Nerds.

Yes folks, all the way from 1982, comes TRON, a story about a computer programmer who gets digitised and sent into a another dimension, where he has to save everything from the bad guys, especially David Warner!

Interesting fact - Corey Burton took inspiration from Warner's character in TRON when he was creating the voice of G1 Shockwave in the cartoon. Well I found it interesting.

This week, it's the turn of what I'm guessing was some people's first experience of still the best Transformers movie - the animated 1986 spectacular that saw the debuts of Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr, and of course the most awesome Autobot of them all - Ultra Magnus!

Spoiler - Optimus Prime dies in this one. Just a warning for those of a nervous disposition there.

Episode 155

The full gang's back this week (for the last time in a little while), and the guys discuss many, many things, including the weather, sport (Andy Murray winning a tennis, for example), and the state of broadband connectivity vs. dialup.

They also find out what YOU used to be in the playground (along with who you may have injured), as well as all the news that's worth knowing in the wide, geeky world - and considering it was Botcon a couple of weeks ago, that's quite a lot of stuff to begin with.

We also find out what the guys used to do on their summer holidays - long story short, everyone except Glenn did interesting stuff. Glenn watched cartoons and was grumpy. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

Episode 154

This week it's Jii, Glenn and Sam against the world! Well, podcasting about their childhoods and nerdy stuff, anyways. 

Together, they take on who YOU would want to leap into and save the universe (or use it to nefariously look at childhood crushes), as well as taking a look at all the news worth looking at this week.

Also: we answer the question of who we roleplayed as in the school playground. Some of us dreamt we were Darth Vader, others a perpetual motion machine...

WTMS: Batman - The Case of the Laughing Sphinx

This week it's time to join Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder, as they take on Gotham's shadowy underworld and such fiends as the Joker, Penguin and Catwoman! We also discover the tragic origins of Robin, and how come he ended up being Batman's dynamic and loyal sidekick! 

(Although if you don't already know that, you kind of suck as a nerd.)

In honour of Man of Steel finally making it to theatres, this week sees the Last Son of Krypton tackle deadly killer bees!

Episode 153

This week sees the return of Jii, as well as our 'side homework', where we get YOU to decide on the identity of the next actor to play Doctor Who!*

But that's not all, because episode 153 sees Sam Palmer spotlight his very first thing from the 80s, and he's chosen to take on the mighty Quantum Leap! Yes, the show all about time travel and setting right the wrongs of the universe, that exists in the same odd dimenson as Magnum PI and Jessica Fletcher. 

Also in this weeks show, we take you on a trip around the news, from Transformers to Shapeways to He-Man to Big Bang Theory Funko figures.

Oh, boy.

*Yes, I know he's not actually called Doctor Who.

Episode 152

This week sees Glenn, Phil and Sam finally read out your memories of Gladiators! The 1992 ITV series, that is.* Not the Russell Crowe movie. Or the slaves who were forced to fight in Roman arenas throughout the (then) known world 2000 years ago. Not that.

They also get sidetracked (a lot) and talk about old wrestling, school memories, smells and lots more, as well as report on all the news that's worth knowing from our favourite franchises this week!

Gladiators, READY!

*Be prepared for lots and lots of guys in their thirties talking about Jet. No, really. Get ready.

There's also news, views, and a strange discussion about Kelloggs frozen waffles (and the reflectors that came with them!)

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Marvel at the adventures of the Kid Stuff Transformers, as Optimus Prime, Prowl, Megatron and Soundwave sit idly and watch action going on, and describe that action to you. Listen in wonder as Optimus Prime discusses the morality of combat in the most tedious way possible, before going back to not doing anything at all.

Oh yes, people. This is the good stuff. After this, the Ladybird audios will have never sounded so sweet.

Lots to talk about this week. Glenn's back, Becca's absent. Margaret Thatcher died, Glenn saw GI Joe: Retaliation and wants to talk about it, at length (so SPOILER WARNING if you haven't seen it yet). 

After that though, things get a little less hectic and a whole lot more charming, as Jii spotlights the classic kid's TV show BERTHA!

As for the news: Joecon, Joecon, Joecon. Yep, that was last weekend, so lots of Joe news this week! (Hopefully we'll be having Dave Tree at BTTE Towers again soon to report on how that went this year, as he was lucky enough to attend). There's also a smidgin of Masters news, and a sliver of Turtles, as well as Thundercats and Transformers!

All in all, a very packed show this week. Bon Appetit!

Episode 142

Phil and Becca are back this week, and together with Glenn, they all set off on a journey to find the Thirteenth Colony of Man, searching through the Galaxy to find the mysterious planet known as Earth...oh, they found it.

There's also news though, mainly in the form of Transformers and GI Joe news, but still, NEWS.

They also have a discussion about cutting and pasting important events from history, and Doctor Who! Aren't you lucky. YOU be the judge!

When the Music Stops: The Saga of Battlestar Galactica

As it the last WTMS for a couple of weeks, we'd thought we'd give you all a treat; the full, 50-minute LP version of 'The Saga of Battlestar Galactica', with original audio and music from the series, AND narrated by Adama himself, Lorne Greene!

By your command!

Episode 141

There's no Phil or Becca this week, but there IS an Andrew Turnbull from the Stardub podcast joining Jii and Glenn this week, as they discuss your (and their) guilty pleasure movies this week (as well as a multitude of other different things - a plethora, if you will).

They also ferret out the latest news (including how the Botcon sets might be improved in future years), as well as answer a question about how and why the Noughties might have sucked.

It's totes amazeballs!

When the Music Stops: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Following on from last week, it's the second in the Indy Trilogy, as we go back in time to 1935, to when Indy takes on a child-stealing, heart-ripping-out cult, in the darkest, and most contentious of the movies!

What ho, chaps! Chocks away, tally ho, righty-dokey and all that, what? It's only Becca's turn this week at the spotlight, don't you know, and it's her first one to boot! She's only gone and bally well picked the 1986 'classic' movie Biggles now, hasn't she? You know, the one about the World War I pilot who has an American time twin in the 1980s? Wizard!

There's also ads from 1982 (the LWT region, where mater is from) and also all the news you'd ever want to shake a stick at, what?

Now, I remember in India, in 1862...or was it Dudley?

When the Music Stips: Raiders of the Lost Ark

It's all the way back to 1936 this week, as we join Indiana Jones in his first adventure (on film, at least) as he avoids Nazis, French archaeologists and angry Jewish ghosts as he searches for the Ark of the Covenant!

Just so you know, this broadcast has been made by top men. Top. Men.

This week's show sees the return of Becca - yes folks, Professor Lampenstein is BACK!

As if that wasn't enough to make you want to listen, Phil spotlights Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends (Iceman and Firestar, as if you didn't know), and the News Team assembles once more to bring you all of the best toy news in town, as well as answering some of your questions put to us through the medium of the interwebz.

How do we answer the questions, you say? Why with SCIENCE, of course!

When the Music Stops: GI Joe

This week sees a trio of GI Joe stories heading your way, all courtesy of our old friends at Kid Stuff! Anyone who has ever heard their Transformers stories will know what to expect here, so don't get your hopes up; their GI Joe stuff isn't much better, if at all better. 

Still there's three stories to choose from, so I'm hoping quantity trumps quality this time around. They're certainly weird enough to get entertainment value out of, if nothing else.

The three stories are: The Captive City, The Deadly Satellite and Challenge of the Clones. Enjoy, and YO JOE!

This week sees the return of the guy who helped start this very podcast you're listening to - yes, the Jer Bear guests on this episode with Glenn, Phil and Jii!

In this week's episode, we take a look at what YOU want us to spolight in the coming months, as well as catch up on the rest of the news at Toy Fair (including some adorable Crimson Guard), and also answer some questions about comic books and TV! 

Becca's still not well this week, but we hope that she's back next week with us - we miss you Bri! Get Well Soon!

When the Music Stops: Transformers - The Special Teams

Boy, do we have a treat for you this week. ONLY available in the UK using Robot Points, The Special Teams is a definite curio. Yes, it's nothing but a glorified advert for the combining Transformers of 1986, but it's unique in the fact that it casually steals bits of continuity from all the G1 stories that were happening at the time, including the comic and cartoon.

It's also narrated by Don Henderson of 'Bulman' fame. He was in Star Wars, you know.

Episode 137

It's the Toy Fair episode of BTTE, so Glenn, Phil and Jii have a lot of news to go through this week - so much so, that they don't actually get to fit it all in this week!

What we DO have is a spotlight on the Hanna-Barbera take on Godzilla, an ad break with an extra special bonus, and a question that brings some very interesting and unexpected answers. Lead on, Macduff!

We'd also like to wish Becca a very speedy recovery, as she's not well. Get well soon, Becca!

When the Music Stops: Action Force - Return of the Dinosaurs

In honour of Dave Tree (All the Cool Stuff, Roll Out Roll Call) visiting BTTE Towers, this week's story is NOT the GI Joe cartoon episode 'Primordial Plot', oh no. It's a rare journey to see those International Heroes from Action Force! Listen as a very British Flint takes on the creepiest ever Cobra Commander, and foils a plot to take over the world using cloned dinosaurs! All to the best cartoon theme tune ever! FULL FORCE!

Episode 136

It's special guest time at BTTE Towers, and this time it's the turn of specialist collector's store All the Cool Stuff owner, one of the guys in charge of the Roll Out Roll Call convention, and all round nice guy, Dave Tree! Dave has a lot of interesting things to talk about, not only because he's a fan of most things 80's, but also because he has a unique perspective of the toy world, being a store owner. He is a must!

Also this week: Glenn, Phil, Becca and Dave discuss your thoughts and feelings of TMNT 2: The Secret of the Ooze, and we trawl the depths of the News Pipe in search of all the tasty morsels of new this week. How will new girl Becca cope with the News Pipe in her first foray into it? (Spoiler - brilliantly)

When the Music Stops: Batman - The Warhawk

This week's tale of derring-do (about half eleven, sir) comes from 1989, and is again from Ladybird, who seem to have made a good living in the 80s by making some awesome readalong books. In this tale, the Penguin makes off with a government super-plane (think Firefox), and of course, there's only one man in the world who can stop him - the Dark Knight himself!

Top Tip: listen out for the great music bookending this one, in the style of Prince's 'Batdance', but not - if you see what I mean.

Hark! A new podcaster appears! Yes folks, there's a new addition to the BTTE team, in the shape of Becca aka Metrodoxy! Please make her feel welcome, and treat her as you'd treat Glenn, Phil and Jii. In fact, scrub that, treat her nicely!

This week's show sees Becca join the guys as Phil regails us with a spotlight of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze, followed by some news - and as there's been a week's hiatus, there's plenty of it about. So much, in fact, that we've had to hold some off until next week, you lucky people.

Also: we find out which 80s theme tunes rock the team's boat. Yes, team. We have a team now. Like the Avengers. But nerdier.

There's also all of the news to take a gander at, including some rather strange news concerning Mattel and Wal*Mart, the gradual let down that is Transformers Beast Hunters, and some cracking news from the world of the Turtles!

Back to the Eighties New Year Special 2012

It's the last show of 2012! And in BTTE Towers, it's time to welcome a special guest - Kalel Prime! Yes, it's been a while since the Batman Commentaries, so it's well past due to have the dulcet tones of Dave on the show again.

This week, the guys let you all in on what Father Christmas brought them tis year - and it's an eclectic and suprising list, I can tell you (mainly because I was there). Also on the show; some Transformers news (some good, some bad, all interesting though) and a few Star Wars stories, and Dave, Phil and Glenn answer a question posed by our very own Boglodite Thanos.

To all our listeners, a Happy and Prosperous New Year, may you live as long as you want but never want as long as you live!

Back to the Eighties Christmas Special 2012

Yes folks, it's hello and welcome to this year's Christmas special, where Glenn, Phil and Jii take a look back in time to 1985 and 1986, to see what Christmas telly was like back then, in the year before Eastenders took root as the BBC's festive choice year, after miserable year.

There's also all the news worth looking at, including some very interesting Lego (and not-Lego) developments, some actual good third party news, and all change regarding the Star Wars comics!

When the Music Stops: Christmas Special

Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas!

Yes folks, tis the season of goodwill and peace, and in the spirit of giving, this Christmas we at BTTE Towers are giving you the gift of TWO readalong classics!

First up, it's the tale of how Scrooge McDuck renounced his miserly ways (only to have them turn up in Ducktales again) in Mickey's Christmas Carol, and then, it's the turn of a true Christmas classic, as we join Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang for A Charlie Brown Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Episode 129

It's nearly Christmas at BTTE Towers, and Glenn, Phil and Jii are getting ready by reading out your lists to Father Christmas! There's also all of the news that's fit to talk about this week (including some news about GI Joe: Retaliation, the new Star Trek movie and even Man of Steel), and there's even a discussion about crisps which ends up making Glenn and Phil feel decidedly old (Jii, not so much.)

Glenn's not here this week, so Phil has enlisted the help of two, yes TWO people this week to assist with the podcast, you lucky people. Joining Phil this week are Jii, the esteemed third member of the BTTE team, and Andy, the Moon Baws himself!

When the Music Stops: Autobots Fight Back

This week's readalong confection is a return to the Ladybird Transformer universe, where the Autobots are learning more and more about the strange planet of Earth, and the Deceticons yet again get the wrong end of the stick and misunderstand Earth technology.

When the Music Stops: Star Trek and Spider-Man

Yes folks, because there's no regular podcast this week (thanks, Glenn), we'll have a double dose of readalong goodness, shall we?

This week, from Power records, it's two adventures from 1975, with the crew of the Entreprise having a tricky time with wine as they find out 'In Vino Veritas', then we relocate to New York to see how Spidey deals with 'The Bells of Doom'!

This week sees Phil and Glenn looking at one of the quintessential 80's gameshows, with one of the quintessential 80's gameshow hosts - Bob Monkhouse! Yes folks, it's time to take a trip to Bob's Full House, where, as Bob himself would always say, the doors are always open for you!

There's also all the news that we can gather together this week, and a question or two about 80's computers, and a poser about immortality itself...hopefully we won't be playing the Game of Rassilon here at BTTE Towers though. Not quite yet, anyway.

But that's not all, as they also take a look at all the news that's fit to discuss this week, including the casting news of the fourth Transformers movie, as well as some Turtles Lego and Masters of the Universe news.

We also look at our 80's guilty pleasures, and Jii attempts to disturb the others into not sleeping tonight. *shuddertwitch*

It's Channel 4's 30th anniversary this week, and Back to the Eighties marks this with a look back at some of it's greatest (and not so greatest) moments! From lesbian kisses to doing anything to get on television, it's time to keep an eye on 4!

There's also plenty in the news to keep us occupied this week too, with a certain House of Mouse taking over a certain Star of Death...but do Glenn and Phil have a bad feeling about this, or will the Force be with us?

WARNING: May contain Glenn and Phil singing Australian soap opera themes.

We also mark the passing of Michael 'Rimfyre' Taylor, who sadly left us this week. RIP Michael.

Phil's back this week, just in time for the guys to be joined by an extra special guest; comic colourist and soon-to-be superstar artist, Auto Assembly 2012 guest Sam Palmer! Together, they discuss your picks for a new TV show, packed full of your favourite 80s TV stars (and a skiing testicle-shaped being)! They also rummage around the news bin for the choicest cuts of news, before answering a question which brings up some painfully funny memories.

If Horace were to ski and no one was there to watch him, would the game still have sucked? Yes. Yes it would have.

This week, Glenn and Jii go to the seaside, specifically, Cockleshell Bay, where they have a great time building sandcastles and reminiscing about simpler, more innocent times. Then, it's back to Earth with a bump, because the depths of the toy news need to be plumbed (although considering the time of year, there's quite a bit of news about). After all that, it's time to take the train to Question Town, as we've got your questions that need answering!

I think that's about as far as I can go with the travel metaphor. If indeed that's what it is. It might be an allegory. It's not a similie, that's for sure.

My head hurts.

Episode 116

This week, Glenn and Phil are deep in discussion about many subjects, including your top 5 Generation One Autobots and Decepticons, last week's Doctor Who episode, and the voice of Mr Kipling's in the 1980s. Add to that all the news that's fit to talk about, some more talk about who our action series drinking buddies would be, and some ladybird book weirdness, and you've got yourself a show!

Warning: may contain Hasslehoff. Not enough to cause harm, thankfully.

Episode 115

This week's episode sees Glenn and Phil discussing how your own personal montage would go - the music, what would happen, and so on, as well as some interesting tidbits about Swansea City, Hans Zimmer, and Doctor Who.

Add to that mix the usual eclectic seasoning of news, views, and questions about times gone past (especially some stories about very disappointing toys), and you've had your 2 a day! 2 a day of two old codgers rambling on, that is.

Episode 114

In today's very special episode, Glenn and Phil are joined by the awesome and very nice Harry Partridge, creator of Bo-Starr, Starbarians, and The Justin Beiber Show! Harry talks about not only his animation, writing and voice work, but also his love of toys, particularly obscure ones. Somehow, we're not surprised.

We also discuss the classic 80's montage (and a few others that have been 80's inspired), and have a look at the toy news for this week. You can tell that the Road to Christmas is about to get tarmacced - there's very little in the way of news at the moment.

Then again, we're talking to Harry Partridge. Which is more awesome than news anyday.

It's that time of year again, folks - yep, the Newsless Times are upon us again! In this news-light episode, Phil and Glenn discuss your hauls from Auto Assembly this year (amongst other things), and try and eke out some news from our favourite franchises! Much like pimpin' though, it ain't easy.

Jii joins us this week for his MOTU news round up, as well as some VERY interesting news about Hanna Barbera toys which haven't been released yet...also, the guys round up all the usual news, and answer some of your questions, including a trip down memory lane...a sweet, sweet trip.

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.

Episode 109

It's time to break out the Li-lo, buy yourself a wordsearch book and have that Quatro bottle full of seawater ready to wash off the sand on your feet, because today's edition of BTTE is all about holidays! Yes, many wet weeks in Rhyl brought you this episode, so think on. Next year, it might be you making sandcastles on Blackpool beach!

We also have all the news that's fit to report, including some SDCC Thundercats news, and of course, the opening salvoes from what promises to be a very interesting Joecon this year.

So join us, won't you, as start to sing in the car, throw Travel Scrabble pieces at each other, and get told by Dad that if we don't simmer down, he'll turn the car around...

Movie Commentary: Batman Returns (1992)

It's the turn of the Bat, the Cat and the Penguin (and The Walken) in this week's commentary - yes, Batman Returns! (Or Tim Burton's Batman, if you prefer)

Listen to Dave and Glenn as they discuss the highs and lows of the movie, the people considered for the roles, how Robin might have been portrayed a LOT differently than you'd expect, and just why is Batman a little bit like the Michael Bay Optimus Prime in this movie?

Good morning campers, Hi-de-Hiiiiii!

Yes, it's the Perry & Croft classic sitcom that's under the spotlight in this edition, as Glenn takes you through the thrills of the Knobbly Knees competition, to the wonder of the custard pie throwing event, to the relative calm of the end of week dance, where our resident Elvis impersonator will wow you (but only from the waist up).

Also, all the news that's worth talking about this week, and a whole boatload of questions to keep you happy, including the whereabouts of such 80's icons as Gary Wilmot, Gordon Burns and the Grumbleweeds...

Movie Commentary: Batman (1989)

Yes, it's that time again. Get your Batman DVD, slip it gently into your waiting DVD player, press pause at the Warner Bros. logo and press play on the podcast, because Glenn and Dave are here again with another movie commentary!

This time as promised many moons ago, it IS Tim Burton's first Batman movie, which was released all the way back in 1989. Seems a long time ago now. Which is mainly because, well, it is. 

Anyway, sit back, relax, and listen to two nerdy men ramble on while a movie plays in the background! And remember, if you gotta go, go with a smile.

It's all about the ITV regions this week, as Glenn & Phil discuss the area where you grew up and what idiosyncracies they had, as well as which idents scared you (or which didn't, as the case may be.

There's also NEWS! Well, there isn't much really, but let's be enthusiastic anyway. At least what we DO have is exciting. 

We also answer some of your questions, as well as probe deep into the subconcious mind of the Glennster. It ain't pretty.

Yes, including THAT GI Joe news. Seriously, Paramount. You're making it hard to still love you for The Avengers.

It's that time of month where Jii comes around again (NOT a euphemism), so lay beack, relax, and let the sweet, sweet sounds of Masters of the Universe wash over you. Oh, and anything else which Jii's almost bloodhound-like reporter's instinct turns up!

Also in the show this week; a smidgin of T-Cats news, a crumb or two of Star Wars, and a nice, rich, creamy pudding of Transformers news. No Joe news this week, though. But we will get to it. Oh, how we'll get to THAT.

They also check out all the news this week (some of which is very exciting indeed, especially if you're a GI Joe fan), and answer some questions. So strap yourselves in, put on your sunglasses, because the future's bright. The future's neon.

Ep 103 finds Glenn and Phil (finally) discussing Transformers: Victory, and whether or not it was a worthy successor to the majesty of Masterforce. It also finds them talking lots and lots of inane crap, having a good old chinwag about superheroes and self-hating fans, and realising to their horror that yes, they're getting on in years now, the old twats that they are.

Oh yeah, and they report on all the news there. Even I keep having senior moments. 

Get off my lawn.

Episode 102

Well, it's episode 102 of the podcast, and it's all a bit topsy-turvy. Y'see, it would normally be Joecon week, but as GI Joe is taking centre stage movie-wise this year, it's Botcon week a few months early!

So expect lots of Botcon news (although nothing as outstanding as in previous years) and marvel at the fact that Glenn and Phil manage to interject a lot of bitching about topics as diverse as wine collecting, fishing and the ending of Battlestar Galactica...

Jer and Glenn Assemble!

This week it gets all a bit special and spoilery, because Jer and Glenn have now seen the Avengers movie (or Mavel Avengers Assemble in the UK - Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman have a lot to answer for) and want to talk about it at length. So if you haven't seen it yet and want to keep spoiler-free, then don't listen to it yet!

You have been warned.

Jer and Glenn STS Episode 6

It's episode 6 of STS! Jer and Glenn are joined by a guest this week, the good and noble Time Lord himself, as Jer continues his quest into better understanding a TV show which he's only discovered in the last few years; Doctor Who!

This episode IS A MUST if you're a bit of a newb to the TARDIS, and not too well versed in the ways of the Last of the Time Lords.

Jer and Glenn STS Episode 5

After a couple of weeks away (due to Jer having a new arrival at his place), STS is back, and this week, we're talking about an issue that's pretty much affected us all - the rise of the geek!

We also take a look at another Transformers UK story, this time around it's the only time that the cartoon and comic ever really mixed, as we ponder over the mighty Decepticon Dam Busters!

What's that? Where's Jii, you say? Where's the number one purveyor of all the Masters of the Universe news you'll ever wish to hear?

Right here on Back to the Eighties, of course!

There's also your answers on the subject of Masterforce to discuss as well, PLUS all the rest of the news to marvel at, so there's really no excuse not to listen to this week's bumper edition, really.

Episode 100

Lawks a Lordy! Back to the Eighties is 100 editions old today! Just think of all that time we've spent together. We could have been doing something constructive, like putting up shelves, or bothering crows with pipe cleaners.

Ah, memories. 

Still, Glenn and Phil have been busy this time around, listening to your messages of adoration and support, spotlighting possibly the most polarising Transformers series ever in Masterforce, and reporting on all of the news happenings in our favourite toylines this week.

All this, AND question answering? Surely, Ambassador, you are spoiling us.

Also: more Star Wars Kinect discussion. Glenn's a little bit smitten with the dancey minigames. So much so, he's been singing 'Hologram Girl' all day. Pity him.

Yes folks, it's that time again, so lock your doors and set your phasers to 'tickle', because Jer and Glenn are here to shoot the shit!

Among this week's topics are Transformers: Prime, Bay's alien Turtles gaffe, 80's toons vs today's toons, and a special surprise for all Star Wars fans!

SPOILER: Star Wars fans might not be happy. In fact they won't be happy. Especially if they have no sense of humour.

It's time for Glenn and Phil to cry out 'HEAD ON!' this week, as they spotlight the mediocre glory that is 'Transformers: The Headmasters'!

They also report on all of the news that's worth taking a look at this week (mostly GI Joe and Transformers this week though; you have been warned), and your questions are also answered, including a revelation about if their Transformers will be bequeathed to Rob should they get struck down by fiery death!

HINT: no.

BTTE: Jer and Glenn STS - Episode 3

Operation Bumblebee: Part 2 is this week's main topic of discussion - but was it any good? Did Jer and Glenn think it measured up to the promise of part 1? You may be surprised!

'Raiders of the Last Ark' is this week's Classic UK comic pick - did the Jer Bear expect to see Optimus Prime wearing a fedora, and Megatron having his face melted off?

Find out in this week's edition of STS!

Movie Commentary: Superman III (1983)

Join Glenn and Dave as they endure the pain of watching the Superman franchise start to turn from epic to possibly-not-so-epic, as Richard Lester directs what is essentially a lacklustre Richard Pryor movie.

Movie Commentary: Superman - The Movie (1978)

Where Glenn is joined by Dave (aka KalelPrime) to take a look at this classic superhero movie (pretty much the first, in fact), to see if we can still believe a man can fly, or whether Superman gets caught up in his cape.

NB: Sadly, I can't find a link to this movie online, I did have a good look. You can pick the movie up cheap or through 'other means' though.

This week, Jeremy and Glenn are joined by Andy (aka CobraCommanderTFW), as they spotlight the Mr Men, and go through all of the news that's fit to print! (And obviously talk about.) Also, news of an exciting Youtube venture on the Back to the 80's channel!

Sadly, this episode is a bit late due to technical issues, so apologies about that. We got there in the end though, eh?

Episode 32

Where Jeremy and Glenn find out what your favourite pre-school programmes from the 1980s were, try and scrounge up some news (no mean feat) and answer your questions. If news falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does that mean that we still won't know when Transformers: Prime will air?

Where Jeremy and Glenn discuss 'Rainbow' (and dispel a few urban myths), report on the news from our favourite franchises (and there actually is some this week!), and answer your questions. Sadly, Rod, Jane and Freddy don't turn up, though. Damn hippies.
