280 – Space: 1999 – Death’s Other Dominion

What are the practical implications of immortality?

The Alphans get the chance to ponder them in much the same way the moon hurtles past planets in the episode Death’s Other Dominion.

Ben and Eugene discuss.

279 – Blakes 7 – Ultraworld

The crew of the Liberator encounters the giant space brain/computer, Ultraworld.

Will anyone find any intelligent life anywhere in this episode?

Ben and Eugene discuss.

278 – Omega Factor – Child’s Play

A child with poltergeist-like telekinetic powers in the hands of a secret government organization?  Stranger things have happened.  What could possibly go wrong?  

Simon and Eugene discuss Child’s Play.

Note:  There was a minor problem with one of the microphones during the recording of this episode which produces some static.  Apologies all around for that.

Also, the episode was recorded months ago, before we had any Patreon patrons, so my comments about operating at a dead loss aren’t strictly true – we are immensely grateful to our patrons who are helping out!

277 – Space: 1999 – Collision Course

Moonbase Alpha is on a collision course with a giant planet.  Science and physics are the only things that can save them, but what a lousy time for John Koenig to get religion!

Ben and Eugene discuss the collision course between faith and reason.

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.
