Back to the Eighties - The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 7: The Second Doctor

Leigh and Glenn reconvene to have a bit of a chat about the second Doctor this week - a Doctor borne out of necessity, but also a Doctor that literally rewrote the rules and everything we thought we knew about the character!

Back to the Eighties - Episode 11 - He'll Save Every One Of Us

Claire Vaughan from Chapter Arts joins us this week to talk about a movie that's very close to both of our geeky hearts, a film maybe not considered good at the time, but has certainly become a massive cult classic now, and worthy of anyone's nerdy nostalgia - 1980's Flash Gordon!

Back to the Eighties - Episode 310 - We Have The Power

We have the awesomely awesome Chris Vint with us this week, to chat about a subject close to both our hearts (especially as Chris used to podcast about this very subject on the Masters of the Universe Chronicles) - Masters of the Universe, along with She-Ra and the Great Rebellion!

Nyahhhh.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 309 - Young Ones Shouldn't Be Afraid

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.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 308 - Here's To The Finest Crew In Starfleet!

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.

Back to the Eighties - When The Music Stops: Masters of the Universe - Wings of Doom

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.)

Back to the Eighties - The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 6

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!

Back to the Eighties - Episode 307 - I'd Buy That For A Dollar

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-brian actioner, and made one of the charpest satires of our time.

Thank you for your co-operation.
