1 Jack FrostFor those of you not living in the Deep South, it’s that time of year when the skies turn grey, the leaves all blow away, and Jack Frost comes dancing along to painfull chew your nose off. In other words, it’s Winter! This, of course, also means Christmas is coming. Both of these things are surprisingly good for horror film settings.

“From the far reaches of outer space comes a threat to planet Earth. Mankind faces its most powerful enemy, the mastermind Rodak.”

It was the 1970s, and at least for a while, a staple of the Superstation WTBS after-school television block was a Japanese import from the 1960s. It was 52 episodes of men in rubber suits playing the roles of robots and monsters while beating the snot out of each other every Monday through Friday afternoon to the delight of many a young child. The series was based on a manga called Ambassador Magma, which was also the TV show’s name in Japan. Beating Ultraman to TV screens in Japan by a handful of days, it was the first show of its kind broadcast in full color on their TV stations. The Ambassador Magma TV show also featured one of the earliest examples of the Japanese transforming robot. In America, it was known as The Space Giants.

Bad Moon, good werewolf, and off the rails we go. The crew looks at 1996’s Bad Moon and the results are… uhm… not the typical episode.

Sci Fi(yeah, not SyFy. We’re goin’ back in time, y’all) wipes their asses with a DVD to deliver another shit-stain of a movie! Buckle up for adventure…somewhere else because it sure as hell ain’t with this movie.

On this episode of the Nerdy Laser I am joined with a few friends to discuss one of our favorite action Christmas movies of all time, Die Hard! Some consider it a christmas movie, some don’t but its hard to argue how good this movie is. Bruce Willis goes from Moonlighting to Dying Hard and Alan Rickman amazingly enough makes his film debut as one of the greatest movie villains of all time!

Nerdy Laser is the coolest podcast in Bayside! Your host Richard Ewell takes you on a trip through the nerdy rabbit hole that is pop culture. One of the focuses is the nineties which is close to Richard’s nerddom but nothing is off limits. He has a variety of guests that come on to share their knowledge & love for any subject from 90’s soundtracks to Jurassic Park. Give us a listen & remember, keep it…

Flash Gordon NBC

“Blasting off on a desperate mission to save Earth from the evil plottings of the tyrannical space lord Ming the Merciless, Dr. Hans Zarkov and Dale Arden have joined me, Flash Gordon, on a fantastic journey into worlds where peril and adventure await us.”

A lot of people have recently been doing nostalgic looks back at American animation through the ages or just at the cartoons and kids shows of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Annoyingly, while hitting a lot of the better-known highlights, everyone seems to give either little or no mention to what was, for me, one of the truly great science fiction Saturday morning cartoons. The Adventures of Flash Gordon, at least the first season, should be more widely recognized as a true classic. Yet, other than a few childhood friends and my childhood-in-spirit friend Sean Scullion, I meet very few people who seem remember it. That really needs to change, as the show’s first season stands up amazingly well all these years after it first aired.

The crew + Bill Mulligan threw me a birthday podcast to talk movie vampires. We crammed a lot of vampires (and almost vampires) in there.
