At DragonCon in Atlanta, GA, RevSF's Joe Crowe (that's me) and Gary Mitchel are the hosts and organizers of the American Sci-Fi Classics track, where we and a ton of talented writers, podcasters and fellow geeks discuss, analyze and have fun with movies and TV made in America and older than 10 years. All in one weekend! Disappear down our podcast hole with us.
(Join the Classic Track on Facebook. We talk about this stuff all year. It's like a con, but without the long bathroom lines.)
Shaun Rosado from Shauncastic
wanted to talk about this excellent show.
With this and Terry Farrell, we had a big year for aliens with spots.
Yes, you can apply actual science to Back to the Future
, Mr. or Mrs. Smarty-Pants reading this description.
When we did this panel, we were going to watch the movie, too. Then I couldn't find the DVD I brought with me of the never-released FF movie. But there's no better location than a con to need another copy of that. I found a new copy at the dealers room -- in about five minutes. We watched it with a crowd, which I highly recommend.
This year Terry Farrell, Jadzia Dax from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
appeared on the panel this year. No big deal. We totally didn't freak out.
RevSF podcast genius Tegan Hendrickson made a snap decision to put on an impromptu Highlander
TV series panel. So she did. People sang the TV theme song. It is glorious.
Check out the incredible Xena cosplayers at the link. Also the actual podcast, which also rules.(The Anomaly Podcast doesn't do any other kind.)
Video bonus! Melinda and Michael, the learned individuals who host RetroBlasting hosted this celebration of Voltron.
And here's part 2.
Another video bonus!
And here's the thrilling conclusion.
That totals a whole hour of discussion about Turbo Teen.
Ah, I can but dream. They also talk about Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos.
This year was the anniversary of Total Recall
and True Lies
, so we talked about Schwarzenegger, along with William Stout, production designer of Conan the Destroyer
and Red Sonja
1940 was a big year for superheroes. Not for reality. We discuss all the heroes who debuted and I talk about my Spectre action figure.
We shared reminiscences about the playthings we grew up with. Each speaker will present a tale attached to a specific toy from their life.
Discussions include Voltron, the Batmobile, and other excellent items.
For all the movies and TV shows we did not have time to do panels on this year, we rolled a giant 20-sided die. We did a lightning round of 20 panels in one hour.
