Hosted by Glenn and his very special guests, 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 252 - Always Five, Acting As One

It's Glenn's turn to spotlight this week, and he's chosen to look at something that reminds him mainly of school holidays, sat in front of the television - it's the repurposed Ninja Science Team Gatchaman, sanitised and shortened for the benefit of Soccer Moms everywhere - Battle of the Planets!

We'll be taking a look at the adventures of the fearless young orphans of G Force, and their battles with the evil Spectra and ther leader Zoltar, who totally, completely had a sister. It wasn't him. No, really.

We'll also have some Toy Fair news, as well as all of the other things that held our interest over the last seven days, so join Glenn, Becca, Paula and Sam as they protect Earth's entire Galaxy.

Dedicated! Inseparable! Invincible!
