Back to the Eighties - Episode 269 - Bustin' Makes Me Feel Good

Things are a bit different this week, with Phil making a triumphant return to BTTE Towers, along with Grufflock, and even Timey's here, all to talk about one of the best cartoons to not only come out of the 80's, but all time. It's relevant too, what with the new Ghostbusters movie on the way!

Of course we're going to be talking about The Real Ghostbusters, the spin-off cartoon from the original 1984 movie. We'll talk not only about the reasons it was called "Real", but also our favourite episodes, the Marvel UK and NOW! comics, and even the toys by Kenner will get a mention.

Warning: also contains Q5.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 268 - Trouble Again

This week sees the gang finally tackle Star Wars: Droids, the continuation of the Star Wars universe when there wasn't likely to BE any more Star Wars. Remember those days? Remember when there were no prequels, no Clone Wars or Rebels, not even any Timothy Zahn novels!

What a bleak universe that was. Ambassador, with all of your Star Wars, you are spoiling us!

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...
