204 – Fantastic Journey – Atlantium

How fast can an episode of a podcast about the Fantastic Journey get derailed?

Answer: Pretty darned fast!

Ben and Eugene discuss Atlantium and Star Trek, and SciFi, and movies, and network executives…  in fact, pretty much anything except The Fantastic Journey.

  1. You bastards! To refresh my very dim memories of Fantastic Journey, having not seen it since the 70’s, I caught an episode online and wound up hate-watching the entire series. I despise myself. I feel unclean. It was just as horrible and disappointing as I remembered. Why did you do this to me?

    Anyway, there was some enjoyment to be had from seeing a snappily-dressed Roddy McDowall and also John Saxon at his snarling, moustache-twirling best.

    Now having seen the series, I’d like to update a previous comment of mine from: “I wound up just sticking around for the Hot Atlantean Chick.” to “I wound up just sticking around for the Hot Atlantean Crazy Cat Lady”.

    I want a supercut of every time Hot/Crazy Cat Lady meaningfully waggles her eyebrows at her cat. How did Katie Saylor manage to keep a straight face doing this? It’s not helped by the cat always having an expression of “I’m bored/hungry” on its face, rather than “Varian is trapped in the secret Brain Sucking Room! Hurry!”

    The only observation I have for this specific episode is that I’m very disappointed the Evil Sponge-Brain in a Fish Tank that ran the city never said “I wager 300 Quatloos on the Newcomers!”

    Now I’ll have to wait months for you to podcast the Abandoned Fairground episode … it’s so delightfully completely bonkers!
