UFO 23: Sound of Silence

The real sound of silence is how crappy Kiyan’s audio is this week.

Something something I could make a song reference here but it just seems too easy so why would I do that? Instead I’m just going to ramble at length about literally nothing. Just kidding, I won’t do that. Instead I’ll just end this description here. It’s The Sound of Silence written by David Lane and Bob Bell and aired on July 17, 1971.


Show-notes:
14:10:
Based on these pictures of collies, it probably was a collie.
19:59: For more on Blake’s 7, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
21:12: The Box of Delights was an adptation of a fantasy novel, so it makes sense Kiyan would watch it. (Editor’s note: What, why?) Also, join me in the reignition of my PTSD with the outro theme and credits from Come Back Mrs Noah.
24:50:
The site is actually called “does the dog die?” and it has way more than just whether or not the dog dies.
30:28: Don’t it.
52:46: Star Maidens is a British-German science-fiction show…

UFO 22: Confetti Check A-OK

The More Things Change, The More They Come in Clutch.

When I have parties at the airport they always make me do a confetti check when I leave. It’s required! I have to go through the metal detector, then the wand, then an x-ray machine, then an air blower, then a magnet… look it’s a whole process to get all the confetti out. Don’t even ask why it’s necessary because I don’t know. It’s Confetti Check A-OK written by Tony Barwick and aired on July 10, 1971.


Show-notes:
25:23: Don’t worry the Gerry Anderson wiki is here with everything you want to know (and more) about Henderson.
30:31: Why do we hear our own voices deeper? CNN has all the answers.
53:12: Something something Stranger Things affects our music taste.
56:30: I didn’t even bother to find the tweet I was talking about.
1:03:20: According to Libsyn we have 91 episodes of Inevitable (if you include this one). Also I said Children of the Stones when I meant Childhood’s End.

UFO 21: Computer-Affair

I had an affair with a computer once. (Editor’s note: Her (2013))

It was a long time ago. Back when computers were curvy and that was attractive. She was a big hulking room sized machine. A Cray-1. Man the curves on that thing. Just knew how to turn me on in all the right ways. It’s Computer Affair written by Tony Barwick and aired on April 28, 1971.


Show-notes:
0:12:
My (Dylan’s) voice sounds like I lost my bass frequencies this week (Editor’s note: sounds the same to me). I think it’s because of the box fan I had running (see show-note at 7:48). We used to do test recordings, remember when we used to do that? (Editor’s note: I do now.)
7:48: We’re currently going through one of the worst heat waves of all time here in California, right after the UK got the same thing.
30:03: Blackbird singing in the dead of night….
48:27: Here’s a picture of Lt. Ellis at the end of the episode for you to decide for yourself how differently she looks.
55:25: Cmon man, you were the one who posited The Prisoner as the first meta video game ever made.
58:50: I’ll just list every Blake’s 7 podcast I know of here, cause why not:
Zenith (us)
Spacefall (idk whether hipcast is an official thing for them, or just one of those rogue podcast upload sites, but I didn’t want to link Apple Podcasts)
Straight Outta the Federation
Maximum Power
The Mutoid Podcast
Blake’s 7 in Character
Classically Awful

UFO 20: Court Martial

I’m an expert on Court Martials.

Look I was just kidding with that by-line. I don’t know anything about court martials actually, all I know is that they’re basically just military trials. I have as little contact with the military as possible in all honesty, although… nah I won’t say anything more. It’s Court Martial, written by Tony Barwick and aired on April 21, 1971.


Show-notes:
0:44: Ron Appleton Knives, definitely illegal where we are. These are some pretty sick knives actually. Some ill blades, you might say.
5:47 I don’t know who’s buying all this UFO merch, but here it is anyway, at shop dot gerryanderson dot com.
6:22: Space:1999 is up on ShoutFactory, for all you shoutheads (that’s what shoutfactory fans are called (just kidding I just made it up (or did I?)))
7:50: If you want to hear us talk about Doctor Who, check out our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast. You can even listen to us talk about Doctor Who for like 2 weeks straight if you want. We have enough content to do that, and I know you have enough free time.
27:35: Have you betrayed us? Have you betrayed me? (This was the best youtube upload of this I could find, sorry)
1:01:46 Or was it all a bit?

UFO 19: Ordeal

Recording this episode was an Ordeal.

I’ve survived loads of ordeals though. This one was pretty trivial compared to some of the ordeals I’ve been through in my life. There was that time I got held up at a red light when I really needed to pee. Now that was what I call a true ordeal. It’s Ordeal, written by Tony Barwick and aired on April 14, 1971.


Show-notes:
6:11: For “once” we’re trusting Wikipedia over all other sources for this information.
9:18: Apple was the Beatles’ record company. The Beatles were notoriously protective of their image, so it was difficult to license music from them for use in TV or movies. (Allegedly) all the estates involved in the Beatles (Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono) need to sign off on your usage. Here’s a report with some of this information when their music was used in Mad Men.
10:59: You can watch UFO for free. With ads. Very easily. In fact, here’s this episode.
17:22: Gotcha. Also check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
27:11: For the 5 millionth week, here’s the shado library timeline.
35:00: I guess since Nope is based on Evangelion and that’s based on this, Nope is basically UFO’s grandchild.
43:30: Yeah so the closest thing I could find to this was postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, which isn’t as severe. So yeah idk, and I’m too lazy to keep searching, so this is the best you’re getting.
54:02: Found a video of the Lucky Luke video game for you to relive my childhood with me.
56:07: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? Also, I’m guessing this is the Cadbury ad Gary Myers was in. Very Prisoneresque in a way.
57:38: Lmao, as if I was going to be not lazy enough to look this up.

UFO 18: Timelash ft. Steven Shinder

Is there a spacelash?

Timelash, spacelash, temporallash, they’re all the same thing. It’s just a time corridor that links you to the future. Or the past. And you have to jump into it and travel through time and… I don’t know where I’m going with this, it’s 10:30 at night and I only just remembered I needed to edit the episode and quite frankly I’m already half asleep so cut me some slack. It’s Timelash, written by Terence Feely and aired on February 17, 1971.


Show-notes:
0:39: It took Steven all of 39 seconds (10 of which were the intro music) to reference the Doctor Who episode Timelash.
1:55: Sad news today gang, Lexico is on the way out.
7:15: Thankfully Steven sent us the link to the massive mayo gummy bear.
17:20: Spoiler Alert: “combatist” is not a word. (Editor’s note: who cares, is now.)
22:00: We have an episode on A.B. and C. earlier on Inevitable.
22:16 And I have a three part blog post about the Prisoner video game which you can read on this very website. Wow.  Here’s part one.
40:17: Wikipedia has a surprising amount of information on the UAP Task Force.
1:03:50: Kiyan is referencing the “always has been” meme in a rare moment where Kiyan references a meme made after 2008.
1:13:43: Here’s links to all of Steven’s Stuff, from his email:

UFO 17: The Dalotek Affair

I had an affair with a Dalek once.

No, I swear, I did! He was very loving. He treated me nicely and would always hunt down anybody who ever hurt me. If somebody said something mean to me he would exterminate them. If somebody got in my way he would destroy them. And if I did anything wrong he’d…. It’s The Dalotek Affair, written by Ruric Powell and aired on February 10, 1971.


Show-notes:
2:30: For more on Doctor Who, make sure not to go to any other source besides Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast. Seriously, if you do, you’ll regret it, probably. Don’t even watch the actual show, just listen to our episodes.
6:20: I don’t know anything about these writers except the first 20 pages of Gravity’s Rainbow so I’ll let Kiyan link anything more about them (if he wants). (Editor’s note: meh, I’ll just take the path of least resistance and link Thomas Pynchon and Don DeLillo on wikipedia. Le mao.
7:19: Good news, PopApostle is making its triumphant return to the podcast through their Dalotek Affair page.
19:10: About 6 hours after this podcast, Kiyan saying “just another day in the life of me” would take on a more sinister meaning. No, I will not elaborate, I just think it’s funny to say.
36:55: How have we still not internalized the difference between meteors, meteorites, and asteroids after all these years.
47:00: We talked about Torchwood over on Trust Your Doctor, and retcon is a drug used on that show to erase people’s minds.
50:04: Our listeners in the UK might not know what Nickelodeon slime is so here. This is what Nickelodeon slime is.

UFO 16: The Man Who Came Back

butnowimback-pinkmartini.wav

Guess who’s back? Back again? Inevitable. Inevitable is back and you might say that it was all Inevitable because god dammit that’s exactly why we named ourselves that. Because this was always inevitable. Always. For all time. It’s The Man Who Came Back, written by Terence Feely and aired on February 3, 1971.


Show-notes:
1:15: Here’s the discussion on “you-foe” vs “you-eff-oh”.
7:11: According to the best dictionary, Lexico (editor’s note: unironically), there is not a word for anything higher than “thrice”
8:10: For more on the Craig/Cregg tangent, see this random Quora post (editor’s note: this is actually a Reddit post though) I found.
17:00: For more on Blake’s 7, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
35:40: £100 in today’s money is £1,316. Oof. (Editor’s note: ouch ouch oh god) When we started Trust Your Doctor in 2014 it was only worth £1,086.

UFO 15 – Flight Path

The FAA did not approve this episode.

I had a flight path filed once, for the local airport. It was a pretty steep path, came in right over these houses. And we saw a guy just standing in the road with a rocket launcher. I dunno how they got there, but there they were. Just shooting off some missiles. It’s Flight Path, written by Ian Scott Stewart and aired on January 12, 1971.


Show-notes:
8:00: Alright here’s the SHADO Library timeline yet again. I feel like I should just link it at the start of the show-notes every week.
10:41: Firefox is a well known web browser. (Editor’s note: lol. (Editor’s note: “lol” stands for “laugh out loud.”))
25:19: Speaking of Blake’s 7, here’s where I shill our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
29:20: Here’s the Japanese intro to UFO, which features a voiceover narration that isn’t in the original.
54:30: Check for yourself if you think he looks like John Lithgow or not. Here’s George Cole on IMDB, and here’s John Lithgow.

UFO 14 – Mindbender

When it comes to benders, you’ve got a couple types to choose from. First. there’s bender from Futurama, Then, there’s bendy straws. And that’s it. Usually, those are your only options. But UFO provides a third. It’s Mindbender, written by Tony Barwick and aired on January 13, 1971.


Show-notes:
3:50: Pretty sure Steven will suggest “Fully Armed and Operational Emotional Battlestation” as a title
4:00: Let me tell you about the last time I went Full Force. (Actually only around 50 minutes.)
21:11: Go and find out the origin of based for yourself on knowyourmeme.
25:55: Invasion of the Bodysnatchers might have Bodysnatched Kiyan. By the way, I was wrong about there being a movie called The Bodysnatchers. That’s actually what the book the movie Invasion of the Bodysnatchers is based on is called. There’s a previous movie called The Body Snatcher though, based on the short story The Body Snatcher.
1:04:36: Jon Pertwee wasn’t in Catweazle, but according to an unsourced bit of trivia from IMDB, he was meant to have been in it or something. I have no clue how I knew this.
