Some characters just turn out to be iconic and Superman is just one of those! He has been round since 1938 (looks good for his age hey!) and has provided the world with inspiration, someone to hero worship, and some damn fine entertainment since then! Superman has appeared in just about every form of entertainment from comic books, to radio, television and movies and there never seems to be a “him again” moment, we just can’t get enough. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about him in all his incarnations and they have an interview with someone very special. That very special interview is with Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in the 1980s movies with Christopher Reeve. These movies brought a whole new dimension to the Legend of Superman, with what were then ground-breaking special effects and again made everyone want to be from a different planet who came to Earth with superpowers! Margot Kidder is one of Eugenia and Gerri’s favourite interviews, with Margot not afraid to talk about her life “warts and all”. This is a very special episode and they would like to thank Scott Liston from First Contact Conventions, http://www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for allowing them to spend time with Margot! The Liston’s have a new experience for fans of “popular culture” coming to Melbourne Australia, with AMC Expo check them out at http://www.amcexpo.com.au . Eugenia and Gerri would also like to thank actor Sam Lloyd (you know him as Ted Buckland from Scrubs) for the use of the Superman March song sung by an a Capella group he sings with called The Blanks. For more of their songs visit http://www.theblankswebsite.com or iTunes.
Every woman wants him and Gerri and Eugenia are no different. They are talking about “…is it a bird, is it a plane no its Superman” yes, the man of steel himself. They discuss the many incarnations of the man of steel from the comic books to the movies to the TV shows. They have a look at the villains, favourite support characters and how these are represented over the years. They look at one of the biggest villains of them all the nasty and cantankerous Major/General Zod. They also get to talk with very funny Callum Blue who played Major Zod in Smallville. Callum is an actor who turns up in many genre shows and you never forget that he has been there. They thank their friends Jason and Darren from Gifts for the Geeks http://www.giftsforthegeek.com.au for the interview with Callum when he was at a Supanova Pop Culture Expo http://www.supanova.com.au
