 UK TV has some shows that never really grow old they just keep on giving. One of these is the iconic Sci Fi comedy Red Dwarf! In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk to another of the cast. The smartest and dumbest computer on board the ship, (even the scutters are more intelligent than Holly on occasion) is who they are interviewing, the funny and sardonic Norman Lovett. But, as with any episode of Red Dwarf the unexpected can happen and that happened when they started interviewing Norman! In pops the redoubtable Craig Charles, who audio-bombed Norman, what happens next is a laugh fest where Eugenia and Gerri just sit back and let it happen! Eugenia and Gerri also talk all about the latest series’, yes, including Season 9 .
Don’t forget to catch up with their previous interviews with cast members including Cat (Danny John-Jules), Lister (Craig Charles), Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) and Captain Hollister (Mac McDonald). Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scott Liston of www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for the opportunity to interview Norman and Craig.


Episode 135 – The Discovery of Star Trek – Rekha Sharma

issuu podcast 135

This podcast recorded part way through the series has Gerri and Eugenia speculating who the Captain of Discovery was to be! This incarnation of Star Trek is a darker, grittier version. No mention of “The Prime Directive” and of course all that technology that we never saw on the USS Enterprise. Have those that believe Star Trek canon should be followed to the letter accepted this new version of the franchise? As we have moved on with our own technology, so has the film industry and it would be “silly” to use the production values or props of the 1960’s in the telling of these stories. Discovery does however (BTW it seems that the show title has been shortened to Star Trek: DSC to fit in with the shortened form of the other shows), give nod to a least the sounds of the 60s with the noticeable hisses of the doors and the tinkle of the transporters and of course the flip communicators, paying homage to The Original Series. Star Trek again looks to the world that we live in with xenophobia being central to current story lines and a retelling of the Mirror Universe, first seen again in TOS. So whilst being new it acknowledges what went before. So far Gerri and Eugenia like the show and look forward to the development of a new history that adds to the mythology of one of their favourite franchises. Don’t forget to check back through their catalogue to re-listen to their episodes covering all of the Star Trek incarnations and even some fan made shows. In this episode Gerri and Eugenia pull an interview from the archive with Rekha Sharma who played Security Chief, Commander Landry. Recorded before the making of the new series, Rekha has been a fan of the show from a child having watched it with her father. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Rob and Sandra from Culture Shock Events who gave them the opportunity to interview Rekha. Check out www.cultureshockevents.com for their upcoming shows.

Episode 132 – A Galaxy Quest Milkshake – Billy Boyd and Sam Lloyd

There are some movies that are just movies, they entertain us and we go on our merry way! However, occasionally there are some that are just either too ridiculous (funny) to forget or just too much fun to not want to watch again! In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri discuss one of each of the above. The first is Galaxy Quest! Anyone who has been to a Sci Fi convention knows the truth of this movie, OK, not the alien and real space ship thing, but everyone of us that goes to cons knows someone who knows the intricate details of what is not “real“ (like a spaceship) and lives as if it is!!! However, it is a very funny movie and is a representation to non-con goers a way to understand the world of the Sci Fi fan. The other movie is Space Milkshake, a funny, weird and quirky space adventure with the most amazing sets for such a low budget movie. It stars some of Sci Fi & Fantasy’s icons including Amanda Tapping and Kirsten Kreuk, actors that have given us long time entertainment in their respective shows.
Eugenia and Gerri would like to Oz Comic Con, www.ozcomiccon.com and Blue Planet PR www.blueplanetpr.com.au for arranging the interviews with their guests. So, who do they interview in this episode, none other than Billy Boyd, who will be known to many as Pippin from “The Lord of the Rings” and plays Captain Anton in Space Milkshake and Sam Lloyd, better known as Ted from “Scrubs” who was Neru in Galaxy Quest. Interesting trivia about both is not only are they actors, but singers and musicians as well. Billy composed and sang the end song for the movie “The Hobbit” and Sam is a member of the A Capella group “The Blanks”. In fact for listeners enjoyment, Sam has given Eugenia and Gerri permission to include one of the group’s works, ‘Carry on Wayward Son’ in this episode.

 In recent times there is one series of books that got a generation of children to read and many adults as well. We really don’t need to tell you as you can see from the image on this podcast! Well, you are right it is ‘Harry Potter’! In this episode Gerri and Eugenia, discuss the books, the films, and much more. This book is of course an epic ‘heroes’it’s a tale, about good over evil, boy meets girl, a crime story, and of course inspirational! So who would not love it? Gerri and Eugenia talk about the fans who are very invested in this tale. There is fan-fiction, blogs, podcasts and even clubs all over the world. A generation of children grew up with Harry Potter and we mean then grew up around the same age and as Harry did so did they. The characters are strong and Hermione Grainger of course, is who every girl wanted to be. She was smart, the best at magic and was also prepared to make sure Harry did what he had to. The series of books is very reminiscent of the British boarding school books from the 40-60s and of course many people who would have gone to them appeared in the series. If you see an actor in another show, film, television and they are from the UK or Ireland then the probably have been in the movies. So Gerri and Eugenia are talking to two actors who played iconic roles in the series. Firstly, Robbie Jarvis who played James Potter in some of the early backstory. Their other interview is with Stansilav Yaneviski, that enigmatic Quidditch player Viktor Krum, who once tried to win Hermione’s heart.

Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Oz Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com and Sophie Blue of Blue Planet PR www.blueplanetpr.com.au for offering them the opportunity to interview Robbie.

Gerri and Eugenia would also like to thank Daniel from Supanova www.supanova.com.au and Lionel Midford www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for offering them the opportunity to interview Stanislav.

 In the 1960s, TV shows mixed it up and Get Smart was one of them! Was it a Spy show, a Sci Fi show, or a comedy? Get Smart was all of them with a little bit of social change chucked in as well! As you can see by the image, Eugenia and Gerri are talking Get Smart, that Sci Spy Fi Comedy show, where technology ruled. Who didn’t want a “shoe phone” or a “Cone of Silence” and the smartest person in the room was Agent 99, a women who always saved the day and the boys! All the characters of this show are iconic, from Agent 86, Maxwell Smart, to the previously mentioned 99, the girl with no name and of course one of the agents of KAOS “Siegfried” the one with many names! Of course this show is all about the standard story of “good vs evil” or ‘control vs chaos”. Funny, pertinent, up-to-date with all the gizmos and social happenings of its time Get Smart, still is all of those things today. So who are Eugenia and Gerri talking to? Two of the icons of the show, Barbara Feldon and Bernie Kopell Agent 99 and Siegfried respectively. They would like to thank Culture Shock Events – Rob and Sandra find them at www.cultureshockevents.com for Bernie and for Barabra Feldon Daniel from www.supanova.com.au and Lionel from www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview these icons!
