Back to the Eighties - Episode 267 - Illusion is the Ultimate Weapon

After all that's gone on the UK this week, it's nice to be able to say we WON'T be talking about politics in this episode - well not for long, anyway. We WILL however be talking about an 80's property that's getting a bit of a makeover this year!

In an age of GI Joes and Transformers, Kenner decided in 1985 that they would basically combine the two and make a superconcept - that concept became the mighty M-m-m-MASK! They're the mighty power who will save the day, and Glenn, Paula, Sam and Becca are going to spotlight them! Hopefully they won't be working overtime, though. Overtime sucks.

The Full Force - WOJM Special Edition #50: LIVE from JoeCon - The See You Next Year Edition!

It's our 50th Special Edition!  So this was supposed to be the recording of the last ever panel at JoeCon. Well, after the Hasbro panel on Saturday, EVERYTHING changed! So instead of turning out the lights, we're going to see you next year! Mike Irizarry hosts and is joined by Joe "Coin Flip" Colton, Chris "ROM" McLeod, Dave "My Hair IS Combed" Tree, and a voiceless yet extremely smug, Gary Godsoe.  They get a chance to talk to Brian Savage on how the new two year deal with Hasbro materialized and how Orlando quickly took shape.  We also hear from Fub Pub's Lanny Latham and we present a special award to Noted Author James Kavanaugh.  Since Gary had no voice, he was our roving mic for some Q&A with the audience.  The attendees had some great questions including our thought on how the #savegijoe campaign may have helped (or not helped) Hasbro's decision to extend the contract with Fun Pub for another two years.  Lastly, what live show isn't complete without a visual gag, in an homage to the Colts-Broncos 1988 Halloween Monday Night Football Game, all of the hosts were equipped with Justin Bell masks!

Hey, no one said it was going to be pretty!
There may be only TWO more JoeCon's left, so don't miss your chance!  We better see you next year in Orlando!!
Enjoy!

Back to the Eighties - Episode 265 - Klingon Hamlet

It's Becca's turn to spotlight this week, and she's chosen a doozy from the early Nineties - the sixth and final outing for (most) of the original Starship Enterprise crew, Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country!

Find out how the movie came about, the reasons for the "end of the Cold War" storyline, and why Nichelle Nicholls and Brock Peters found their lines hard to say!

Glenn, Paula and Becca also have a bit of a reminisce about Star Trek in general, and we'd like you to do the same! Who's your favourite Star Trek Captain? Who's your favourite character? Which villain out of all the many do you loathe or fear the most? We must know!

Back to the Eighties - Fantasmagoria Episode 1 - Andy W

Welcome to Fantasmagoria, the show all about fandom and the glory, pleasure and also pain that it can bring! On this first episode, Glenn talks to someone he's known for 27 years (older than a lot of our listeners, we'll bet) as they talk about his chosen fandom! (Spoiler alert - it's Transformers. Oh yeah.)

Also, apologies for the audio, it's not the best, but it IS the best that was available. We're working on better ways to record, but Microsoft isn't making it easy.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 264 - Right in the Blankety Blanks

It's time to spotlight another classic game show this week, and Paula's decide it's time to review the show that's going to be revived soon in the US, but was a Friday night staple in the UK for most of the 1980s - Blankety Blank!

So, join Paula, Becca, Sam and Glenn as they take a look at the show hosted by Sir Terry Wogan and Les Dawson in the 80s, and Lily Savage in the 90s, and see how they themselves do at the game! Here's hoping that they don't expose their BLANK or BLANKS...

Back to the Eighties - Episode 263 - Grimdark Heresy

It's all about WAR this week, as Paula and Glenn take a look at the grim, dark 41st millenium that began all the way in 1987...Warhammer 40,000!

From the wargaming itself, to the "fluff", to the board games produced by MB that served as the gateway drug for many who are now obssessed with the games, we'll look at it all, and even try to find out who in fact the good guys ARE in this strange, dystopian universe. 

Of course though, that could all just be HERESY. *BLAM*

Back to the Eighties - Episode 262 - Beyond Good, Beyond Evil

Grufflock from The Old Oilhouse joins us Glenn and Becca this week, as we take a look at a piece of Transformers fiction and lore that has informed pretty much everything since, from the season of the G1 cartoon that came directly after, to the toys, to the Marvel UK comics, even the Ladybird and Pickwick Tell-A-Tale books and tapes. We are, of course, referring to the mighty Transformers - The Movie.

So please, join us as we not only look at the effects on everything Transformers that the movie had, but also our thoughts and feelings, and also the replies that YOU gave to our homework question, which we thank you all for.

Till All Are One!
