Episode 019 – The Starlost – Voyage of Discovery

1973’s Canadian Science Fiction extravaganza!

This series is almost legendary as an example of how not to make a TV series. Was it really such a train wreck? Is there anything redeemable in it?

Ben and Eugene try to find out: Is all lost for the Starlost?

Episode 018 – Man From Atlantis – Pilot

Discussing the 1977 American Science Fiction series, Man From Atlantis.

Ben and Eugene discuss if network executives really held science fiction fans in complete and utter contempt and go over some scientific problems with the series pilot and premise.

Also, when discussing the evolution of gills, it should be pointed out that parts of the gill arches evolved into the ear bones, not the jaw bones as stated. That’ll teach me to fly my science by the seat of my pants!
