276 – Westworld (Patron Sponsored Episode)

In the 1970’s the future was populated with robots designed to be cowboys and sex workers.  It’s time to clean up your six-shooter and join us for a look at Michael Crichton’s often-overlooked 1973 classic sex-with-robots film, Westworld.

This episode is a special episode brought to you by our patrons at Patreon who help fund this podcast.  Come join them and help us reach our next funding perk goal – a look at the 1950 George Pal classic, Destination Moon,

And once again, a big thank you to our patrons!

275 – Blakes 7 – Sarcophagus

Mysticism, romance, machismo, magic tricks, musical numbers, and Cally is awakened by a kiss from her prince.  Wow, this episode has got it all!

Ben and Eugene discuss Sarcophagus.

Stereotype - N. - a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing.

274 – Omega Factor – Power of Darkness

Tom Crane is feeling the need for some female companionship.  Too bad he’s out of practice and as awful as a cliche 70’s mega-slimeball.

In spite of all that life goes on – for some people – as a group of bored college students brings forth the Power of Darkness! (Wasn’t that the plot of Dracula A.D. 1972?)

Oh, and while Tom fiddles, he brother Michael gets burned.

Simon and Eugene discuss the Power of Darkness.

Fusion Patrol Classics are Here! More Videos are Coming!

Folks, about a month and a half ago, some drove a car right into my house – right into my video studio.  Without electricity or even a finished wall in the studio, we have not been producing any new videos, but we’re hoping to start again soon!

In the meantime, we’ve created a new YouTube channel called Fusion Patrol Classics where we are posting past episodes of the Fusion Patrol audio podcast grouped by show.  We’ve already posted Sapphire & Steel and we’re moving on to other shows now.

Here’s you chance to catch up on some of our past discussions!

273 – Space: 1999 – Voyager’s Return

Earth has been naughty.  It’s been launching space exploration probes into deep space that kill all life they come in contact with.  Definitely one of their more enlightened programs.

What happens when Voyager One (AKA The Death Probe) finds its way back to the moon?  Can Alpha and a mysterious scientist named Linden take control of the probe and save all their lives?

And who are those aliens ships following Voyager One at a safe distance?

Ben and Eugene discuss Voyager’s Return.

272 – Blakes 7 – Rumours of Death

Avon is on the path for revenge – or so he thinks.  He’s actually on the path for something very different indeed!

Ben and Eugene discuss Rumours of Death.
