Still relevant today with its continuing demonstration that with confidence and some skills you can overcome just about anything! So, who are they talking to in this episode? Almost too many to write about there is the human/demon/human/demon Anya, played by Emma Caulfield and Sarah Hagan a latter day “slayer” from Season 7! However, as they say, “but wait there’s more”!

Arrrrrh me hearties, and shiver me timbers , does that give you some clue as to what Eugenia and Gerri are talking about in this episode! Pirates are baddies that we love to love! So what is a “pirate”, and what do they have to do about Sci Fi and Fantasy well that’s what Gerri and Eugenia talk about! Pirates in spaceships include Firefly, Farscape and even some could say Doctor Who, well the odd episode or two! Eugenia and Gerri could not resist putting a picture of Johnny Depp on this podcast they unfortunately don’t have an interview with him, but they do have one with the “sane” and really the “rudder” and first mate of The Black Pearl , Joshamee Gibbs otherwise known as Kevin McNally. This actor who you will recognise from many a Sci Fi show talks about his obsession with “Tony Hancock”, his work as an actor who has managed to build a career across two continents and more! But let’s get back to pirates ! Captain Jack and Gibbs and their many cosplayer copies have turned pirates back into a watchable treasure. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from Supanova Pop Culture Expo, for these interviews, catch them at www.supanova.com.au and www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com  and because they couldn’t resist : “Why are pirates pirates? Cuz they arrrrrr” LOL!!!

Bright colours, fantastical costumes, and insane plots were a hallmark of shows from the sixties and Gerri and Eugenia talk about them in this episode!  The sixties, an era of change, new freedoms, the psychedelic colour schemes and of course the music all combined to create new ways of doing things and TV was no different!  With themes still relevant to our time of “women’s lib” and “diverse families”, Gerri and Eugenia talk about who could be called the first real woman super hero on television and a family that could only be called diverse and in all of the ways that you can consider!  These shows of course include Batman and The Munsters, two of the iconic shows of the sixties they were fun, frivolous and fantastic.  So who do they talk to about these wonderful none other than the first (in their eyes) woman super hero of TV the fabulous and sorely missed Yvonne Craig in an interview that they were lucky enough to do when she visited Australia before her death.  They also talk with the one and only Eddie Munster otherwise known as Butch Patrick.  They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from Supanova Pop Culture expo, catch them at http://www.supanova.com. au   and http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com   for the rare privilege of meeting these sixties icons.

In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri once again discuss one of their favourite TV shows and that of course is Doctor Who! They talk abut how Doctor Who tried to up the anti and introduced what could only be called the “Girl Friday” of Doctor Who, who was trendy, and very, very talkative! This of course could be none other than the indomitable Jo Grant! Companion to the 3rd Doctor and who at the time was a member of the show as it made innovations in the use of “special effects” yes even with the use of lots of quarries, cardboard and of course monsters who even then looked, well the only word is funny! The interview in this episode is with the indomitable (in real life as well), Katy Manning, who at times calls Australia home! As Katy was in playing Jo, a bit of a talker she does not fail us now and this interview for Eugenia and Gerri is one big long one (but that means more for you) and in the listening you never know who may just pop into the interview, giving you not one but two classic series actors! Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scott Liston from First Contact Conventions check them out at http://www.firstcontactconvention.com.au for some amazing upcoming events.

Episode 113 – The Captain and The Cat – Red Dwarf

It’s cold outside, no kind of atmosphere, all alone more or less… Any fan of Red Dwarf will be able to complete the rest of that song and of course the only way that you can sing it, loudly, and this is the show that Gerri and Eugenia will be discussing in this episode. For the last 28 years intermittently this show has been on the screens of Sci Fi fans all over the world. Whilst there have only been 10 seasons it is always eagerly anticipated and fans look forward for latest adventures of what can only be called a “motley crew”!

Red Dwarf is the adventure for the “everyman/women”. We can all see ourselves blunder through the things that life chucks at us and just like the crew in Red Dwarf, we hope that we will come out the other end with, if not success, at least still alive. So, what do they have for you in this episode? They have interviews with a cat and an American, that is Danny John-Jules the elegant and lithe actor/dancer who plays Cat, the being who evolved from a “cat”! The other is with the bane of our heroes’ lives and that is Mac McDonald, the erstwhile Frank Hollister, the slightly incompetent Captain of the ship. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Scott Liston from First Contact Conventions http://www.firstcontactconventions.com.au

Eugenia and Gerri want to thank Peter for allowing them to use his material and what else Peter is hiding in his vault for the future!

While Enterprise did not make it to the seven seasons showing of all the other modern incarnations of the franchise it is still worth a watch and gives us more information to add to the canon of the Star Trek universe.

Whilst there were many great episodes, season 4 stood out and introduced us to the backstories of many of the species and our knowledge of them from the original series. These included how the Klingons played around with Noonan Soong’s genetic work and got their forehead ridges, introduced us to the Borg and of course the beginning of the Vulcan reformation and their path to the use of logic and how Humans overcame bigotry and xenophobia and became the humanity we see in the later series. Gerri and Eugenia also talk about the fan fiction of Star Trek and how it has inspired many fans to take the franchise in their own hands and create Star Trek worlds of their own. So, have a listen to a “plethora” of our guests from Star Trek: Enterprise and check out Anthony’s graphic novel at http://www.anthonymontgomery.com
