Retrospection - EP. 19 - Invasion UFO (1974)

In this episode we launch our interceptors at Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's TV series UFO. But we're taking a look at the Frankenstein version of the show that was created as a promo. Invasion UFO is a feature length story that crams a number of episodes together. Is it successful? Well join us as we answer that very question.

Retrospection - EP. 18 - Dracula (1979)

In this episode we're like a bat out of hell as we take on John Badham's Dracula from 1979. We grapple with the most northern of northeners, ponder if garlic is a herb or a vegatable (apparently it's neither), and take letters from our listeners about what shows and films they'd like to see rebooted in this age of remakes.

Music:

Intro:

Dracula (1979) - Opening and Storm Sequence by John Williams - 

Outro:

Dracula (1979) - Closing Titles by John Williams

In this episode we shuttle into space with Moonraker from 1979.

Are cable car wires made from liquorice? And what is in Bond's standard equipment?

Retrospection - EP. 15 - Lifeforce (1985)

In this episode we suck the life out of Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce from 1985. We marvel at the days when Sir Patrick Stewart wasn't famous, and question how subduing an alien vampire with a biscuit was ever going to work.

In this episode we ride the dark streets with Universal's short lived TV show, Street Hawk from 1985. We discuss how somebody can survive being on a bike at 300mph (it isn't pretty), and we finally come to a disagreement about something we've watched.

Retrospection - EP. 12 - Carry on Behind (1975)

In this episode we gulp down a stiff drink and take a hard, long look at Carry on Behind from 1975. The Carry On series spanned over 20 years and 30 films and is a cultural instution in the UK. But how does one of the later entries in the series fare under the Retrospection magnifying glass? We also finish with a song written and performed by one of our listeners. Enjoy!

Retrospection - EP. 11 - Streets of Fire (1984)

In this episode we rev up our engines and take a race down the Streets of Fire (1984). Walter Hill's musically based Rock and Roll fable disppeared without trace in the summer of '84. We take a watch and see if it really deserved its trip into obscurity.

Music Outro - Tonight is What it Means to be Young by Fire Inc.
