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!

Back to the Eighties - Episode 261 - Saved By the Bell

It's alright, 'cause I'm saved by the be-ee-ell! And so on. Jenny from World of Crap is back with us this week, and she's spotlighting the none-more-nineties teencom that is Saved By the Bell. So expect lots of Kelly looking pretty, Zack lookin preppy, AC looking steroidy, Zack being a sociopath and taping the girls without their knowledge, Jessie being high as a kite on ProPlus, Zack being a psychopath and trying to hypnotise people into loving him, Lisa not doing much and Screech getting arrested for knife crime. Oh, and Belding acting inappropriately with his students.

Much hilarity. Lots of 40 year olds acting like teenagers.

Also, we ask Death to give it a rest. Seriously.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 259 - 80's Comics Cavalcade

It's a throwback episode this time around, as none other than the Jer Bear himself is co-hosting this one! Yep, it's been a while, but Jeremy joins us for this one, along with longtime friend to the podcast Bekki, to talk about what comics and comic book heroes turned our collective heads in the 1980s.

Not only that, but we also discuss this year's Botcon (as Jer and Bekki were both there this year) and also what the Jer Bear's been up to since he was last on the podcast.

You want throwback? You GOT throwback!

(Also, apologies for the sound quality on this one. It would seem that the throwback extends to the quality of mine and Jer's Skype connection.)

Back to the Eighties - Episode 258: Batsy v Supes

It's the greatest gladiator match in history, with the Bat of Gotham taking on the Man of Steel. Who won? Did the movie which finally brought together two of the greatest comic book heroes of all time deserve the critical mauling it received, or did the paying millions who said they liked the movie win out?

Sam, Andrew and Glenn endeavour to find out, debate, and decide where on the spectrum they fall on the most polarizing movie of the year!

Also, where do YOU fall on the movie? Did you like it? Or was it not for you?

Back to the Eighties - Episode 257 - Rain, Rain, Go Away

It's back to school for this week's episode, as Paula takes us to the world of NOT being allowed out into the playground, rather having to stay indoors and make do with whatever's lying in the Rainy Day Box. Did you have games in there? Comics? Books? Or did you just cover your hands in Gloy Glue and try to take the whole thing off like a glove? Join Paula, Sam and Glenn and find out today!
