Episode 47: It’s a Better Quarry!

In the end it’s still just a quarry though.

This podcast isn’t just a game, you know. I think everybody thinks it’s just a game, because we have so much fun, but this is serious business. This podcast has a serious following and serious work that goes into it. So don’t be deceived. It’s Games, written by Bill Lyons and aired on November 16, 1981.


Show-notes:


4:42 Transmission of Matter Through Interstitial Time, or TOMTIT for all you laypeople out there, first appeared in The Time Monster and later made another appearance in The Quantum Archangel.
14:31 Rocky 4 really took the franchise in a bold new direction.
35:47 Warehouse 13 is the sequel to Warehouse 12.
38:20 Bastard swan
47:20 Thanks, St. Clinton and Chris Ridd.
53:52 A few sources say Paul Darrow had his legs amputated (one above the knee, one below) because of an aortic aneurysm. The second link is that sci-fi prop forum I linked to a long time ago by the way.

Episode 13: Absolutely No Information That Could Be of Any Value At All

That’s what you came here for, and we delivered.

This week we’re finishing up the first series of Blake’s 7. Can you believe that that means we’re a quarter of the way through the entire show already? That’s really concerning, where did the time go? It’s Orac, written by Terry Nation and aired on March 27, 1978.


Show-notes:


2:54 The Captain’s Log is a log cut from a 2500 year-old Californian redwood.
7:02 They all sound different.
13:47 Check out our Doctor Who podcast Trust Your Doctor. Please. It needs listenership.
25:41 Yeah Paul Greengrass directed The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum and put a ton of shaky cam in them. The Bourne TV movie is still good by the way.

Episode 12: Spherical Things With Cool Colors

And that was how we discovered that Blake was actually Willy Wonka.

Look, I really really need to deliver this item to that planet over there to save my race. Wait you mean you’ve done this before? 5 weeks ago? With Destiny? It’s Deliverance, written by Terry Nation and aired on March 20, 1978.
