Episode 027 Sapphire & Steel Adventure 4 The Man Without a Face

We’re back with Sapphire & Steel’s fourth adventure, where they combat a monster of our own photographic making.

Episode 026a – Arrogant Scientists

It’s Christmastime, and what could be more traditional than a Christmas rant?

This mini-podcast episode is a brief continuation of a discussion from Episode 026, Man From Atlantis III, although it’s not really about Man From Atlantis, it’s about the appalling treatment scientists get in TV and movies.

Not only do Ben and Eugene pontificate about the poor treatment of screen scientists, but you also get to hear Ben say, “blimey!”

It’s worth it just for that!

Episode 026 – Man From Atlantis III – The Killer Spores

On December 8, 2010, Man From Atlantis III – Killer Spores was rated 7.3 stars out of 10 in!

Find out in the episode if Ben and Eugene think this is a fair assessment of the quality of this, the third pilot movie for the Man From Atlantis TV series.

Episode 025 – UFO – The Computer Affair

Following up on last week’s review of the pilot of Gerry & Sylvia Anderson’s UFO, we’ve decided to take a quick look at Episode 2, The Computer Affair

Set in the year 1980, UFO is the story of a secret defense organization, SHADO, which defends Earth against attacks by mysertious alien invaders.

Episode 024 – UFO – Identified

Also known as the “cursed” episode. Plagued by mysterious data loss, production delays an illness, Ben and Eugene still manage to talk about the pilot episode of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s 1969 cult classic series, UFO.

In this the first podcast on the series, they discuss Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, the setup of the series, major characters, the first episode and reflect upon this 1969 vision of the far flung future of the year 1980.

Launch Interceptors, put Skydiver to ready stations, get on your best mini-skirt or nehru jacket and join them at their look at this blast from the past.

Episode 023 – First Men in the Moon

Ben, Eugene and guest Simon from discuss the BBC’s new adaptation of H.G. Wells’ First Men in the World.

This adaptation, by Doctor Who’s Mark Gatiss, sets the bar for film adaptations of First Men in the Moon.

— First Men in the Moon Adapted by Mark Gatiss Starring: Rory Kinnear as Bedford and Mark Gatiss as Cavor

Aired 19 October 2010, BBC Four

Episode 22 – Starlost – Lazarus from the Mist

This week David from Stalking Moon Bookstore joins Ben and Eugene for a somewhat ramshackle discussion of the even-more-ramshackle second episode of the 1973 TV series, the Starlost, entitled Lazarus from the Mist.

Devon, Rachel and Garth find competent engineers and technicians, just waiting to save the Ark from destruction, but will our hosts find any sign of competent storytelling in this episode?
