Back to the Eighties - Episode 119

Phil's back this week, just in time for the guys to be joined by an extra special guest; comic colourist and soon-to-be superstar artist, Auto Assembly 2012 guest Sam Palmer! Together, they discuss your picks for a new TV show, packed full of your favourite 80s TV stars (and a skiing testicle-shaped being)! They also rummage around the news bin for the choicest cuts of news, before answering a question which brings up some painfully funny memories.

If Horace were to ski and no one was there to watch him, would the game still have sucked? Yes. Yes it would have.

The Old Oilhouse - Happy hour EP 13: Breaking The Walls

If we Podcasts have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While this audio did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Listeners, do not reprehend:
If you pardon we will mend.
Else the Tricky a liar call.
Give me your toys, if we be friends,
And Gruffy shall restore amends.

Will this experience be a sad one for Andy, or will it be victory for him once more?

Back to the Eighties - Episode 118

This week, Glenn and Jii go to the seaside, specifically, Cockleshell Bay, where they have a great time building sandcastles and reminiscing about simpler, more innocent times. Then, it's back to Earth with a bump, because the depths of the toy news need to be plumbed (although considering the time of year, there's quite a bit of news about). After all that, it's time to take the train to Question Town, as we've got your questions that need answering!

I think that's about as far as I can go with the travel metaphor. If indeed that's what it is. It might be an allegory. It's not a similie, that's for sure.

My head hurts.

Stardub - 2.16: Robocop: Dark Justice, I'd bury that for a dollar!

Travel back in time before last episode and in 2.15 we left you with a cliffhanger…

“Friend” of the show Little Philip Ayres has gifted us a Robocop DVD – Dark Justice. This is the ill-advised, ill-fated relaunch on TV via four movie length episodes. We review it, and do our best to keep faith in life. An Oxfam find is next up as we look at The Black Hole Pop Up book, which pop-up novelises the Disney film of the same name.

Back to the greatest era of comics – the 90′s with WildC.A.T.S issue 1 by Jim Lee and Brandon Choi, fresh off X-Men as upstart comic publisher Image Comics launch another successful property. Going back to the X-Men and the previous decade and we treat you to our thoughts of The Uncanny X-Men meet Obnoxio The Clown. They are not kind or clean thoughts.
