Back to the Eighties - Episode 98

It's time for Glenn and Phil to cry out 'HEAD ON!' this week, as they spotlight the mediocre glory that is 'Transformers: The Headmasters'!

They also report on all of the news that's worth taking a look at this week (mostly GI Joe and Transformers this week though; you have been warned), and your questions are also answered, including a revelation about if their Transformers will be bequeathed to Rob should they get struck down by fiery death!

HINT: no.

Stardub - 2.5: Your Thirty Second Werewolf Break

That’s right, we are back, in addition to the 30 second werewolf break, there are nearly 50 minutes of non werewolf break, where we look at Easter Eggs again.

Amicus – The Beast Must Die is our film of choice for the podcast and gives us our title.

In regular feature “shits and googles” – Ralph types in the words “killer” and “cabbage” and somehow comes up with something Beyblade related!

Our exciting publication is Safer Injecting by Lifeline Publications, an illustrated guide on how to inject heroin safely. A warm, friendly cartoon illustration filled book. Rather than leave you in a dark place after this we look at the Transformers Generation 1 Hardcover by Chris Sarracini and Superstar Artist Pat Lee.

The Old Oilhouse - Lock-In EP 84: The Pants Of The Warrior

We return once more, as Stu continues his apparent battle against the Space Whale Menace. So, in his absence, we've kinda...erm...asked for 2 guests to fill his spot.

Also, the sound on this ep has a bit of a odd crackle at times. Apologies for that, and we hope it doesn't ruin the illusion that we actually live in your ears.
