Aired November 30/December 1, 1966

Shame is stealing automobiles only to abandon them sans one part to the vehicle.  What is his scheme and what strange ideas do John and Hidden Harbor Mysteries author Jay Smith cook up when they discuss this episode?  How about Batman working with the Nazi to find escaped POWs in Gotham?  How about the Joseph Campbell-esque journey of a young boy from villain to hero?  How about the lack of care and guidance parents had in the 60s?  It's all here and more on a new Batcave Podcast, just in time to send out 2014!

Jay Smith is the creator and executive producer for the Parsec Award-winning audio drama series HG World.  Since 2009, Jay and his company of players and producers have been telling the story of survivors in the middle of a global zombie uprising.  Now in its third season, this "satellite" production has featured dozens of actors across four continents making it a production truly on a global scale.  Since its debut, episodes of HG World and its spin-off series, the Parsec finalist The Diary of Jill Woodbine and The Googies have been downloaded close to a million times.

 

Inspired by the golden age of radio, Hidden Harbor Mysteries presents a story inspired by stylish pulp era radio adventures like The Shadow, Sam Spade, The Green Hornet, and I Love a Mystery. Performed by a stellar cast, Hidden Harbor hopes to integrate classic radio storytelling with some modern twists.  Jay draws from the work of Orson Welles, Arch Obelor and looks to modern audio dramatists like Douglas Adams and Dirk Maggs as inspiration to create a rich, realistic world of survival horror laced with dark comedy and compelling human drama.

 

Jay holds a BA in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University and is working on his Master of Fine Arts from Seton Hill University’s innovative Writing Popular Fiction program.  He attends and speaks at various science fiction and literary conventions about podcasting, writing, audio drama, and zombies.  HG World can be heard by subscribing through iTunes or visiting the show web site www.goodmorningsurvivors.com.

Welcome to a new audio drama anthology series here on The Chronic Rift Network!  David Binkley is the producer and director of the WCRS Radio Stage program.  He has always loved old radio dramas so in 2000 when Written Communications Radio Service, a radio reading service for the blind, took their studios to digital he started preparing scripts that could relive those thrilling days of yesteryear. He assembled friends and volunteers and they laid down the voice tracks with sound effects and music inserted in post production. 

The thought was to produce a half hour drama a month.  An ambitious goal considering that there was NEVER a regular radio drama series EVER broadcast out of Akron, Ohio.  Over the next twenty-four months they were able to produce twenty-two stories,  After that they put together an occasional story - mostly at Christmas.

The Chronic Rift Network is pleased to present these episodes, one a month for your listening pleasure.  You will hear mysteries, horror stories, Christmas tales, science fiction, and more.  In addition, our own John S. Drew contributed stories to the series.  Listen for his "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Justin Case: Private Investigator" in the coming months.

What we have here is simply a sampling of what you can expect.  The first episode will roll out on New Year's Day with future installments at the first of the month.  We hope you'll enjoy listening.

Paul is away on a critical mission and John is left behind at the OSI building.  Since security is so lax there, John was able to access Oscar's files and he discovered some interesting information.

 

First, he presents another Christmas adventure that Steve was engaged in with Santa Claus.

 

Next, he plays some music that was inspired by The Six Million Dollar Man.

 

Finally, he tells the story of how Jaime and Steve once met Santa Claus in his take of "Twas the Night Before Christmas".

 

It's a holiday themed Critical Assignment and we hope you and yours have a happy holiday.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"We’re in the midst of the holiday season and a big ticket item for many people is pets. There’s a lot to know before you decide to take an animal home and fortunately, Amy Reynolds is here to help us sift through that info. When Amy’s not working in post production for some of your favorite TV shows, she volunteers working with the Animal Shelter in Burbank. Helping shelter animals find the right home has become a passion for Amy for several years now.

This interview will tell not only how to find the right animal but also what you can do if you can’t adopt one at this time. There’s plenty of quick, easy and inexpensive ways that people can help our furry friends looking for a home. And it being the holidays, there are plenty of specials available for those of you in the market. Help spread the word about the knowledge that’s dropped here and let’s get some pets to the homes they belong in. Enjoy."

Aired November 23/24, 1966

Marsha, Queen of Diamonds has her sights on one of the largest diamonds in the world, The Bat-Diamond.  But the fabulous jewel is kept in the Batcave and Batman has sworn no stranger will ever set foot there.  (He did?  When did that happen?)  What to do?  Marsha figures it out; she traps Batman into marrying her.  How will the Caped Crusader get out of this most deadly predicament?

 

Joining John to discuss this completely messed up episode is longtime Batman 66 fan, Robert Long.

Meet Z NATION‘s “Doctor of the Dead” in their action-packed Season 1 finale! That’s right, the big wrap-up to a year of new zombie TV excitement shares OUR show name, and the Doctor himself (no, not that one, THIS one) joins Scott in a BUMPER length episode to chat about this wonderful coincidence as well as how far Z NATIONhas come in just 13 episodes. Will a detour to Colorado spell the end of our little survivors’ group? Will any of them make it out alive from the ‘Hall of Horrors?’ Will we ever see Mack and Addy again? And will Murphy emerge as the King of the Zombies at last?

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"Before this interview I knew nothing about knitting which is why I was so excited to conduct it. Nine years ago this week, Sammi Kat out of New Orleans, LA, picked up the hobby of knitting and he’s never looked back. Sammi was going through a particular rough patch and while convalescing from surgery, he took up knitting to keep himself busy and sane. With a chill in the air this time of year, Sammi’s knitting stories are here to warm you up like a comforting glass of port.

In Episode 23 of the Express, Sammi tells us all about his journey which is an inspiring reminder that creative endeavors can be a great antidote to many of life’s woes. He also has stories about who the knitting community is – hint: it’s not just the stereotype of old ladies on sofas. A lot of mold was broken when Sammi was made. He’s one of my most outspoken and unique friends and I’m delighted he took time for this very fun & informative listen. Enjoy."

The Joker is back in Gotham City and his latest crime spree involves keys of all types.  But there doesn't seem to be any real pattern to the Joker's scheme, even when he develops a box that allows him to control time.  Can Batman and Robin unlock the mystery of this case or will it be too much even for them?

Teryl Rothery

Teryl Rothery (born November 9, 1962) is a Canadian actress. She is best known for her role as Dr. Janet Fraiser on Stargate SG-1.

Rothery first became interested in a performing career when she danced in the musical, Bye Bye Birdie, at the age of thirteen.

Rothery knew that she belonged in front of the camera when she played in the CBC halloween special, Boo, at the age of eighteen. In her teens, being a talented dancer, singer and musician, she was a performer on a North Vancouver-shot TV variety show starring Tom Jones. She is best known for her starring role of Dr. Janet Fraiser on Stargate SG-1, which she played from the show's beginning in 1997 through 2004 (and again as a guest appearance in 2006).

Rothery has appeared in many other sci-fi series, including The X-Files; The Outer Limits; First Wave; Stargate SG-1; Jeremiah; M.A.N.T.I.S.; Kyle XY; Eureka and many others. She played a small role in the Babylon 5 direct-to-DVD movie, Voices in the Dark, as ISN Reporter, Ms. Chambers. She played Lenore Molee in the 1994 TV movie, For the Love of Nancy; and has also done voice acting work. In 2010, she was on the Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, as Evelyn (the mother of Battlestar Galactica's Admiral William Adama). Her most recent work has been her role in A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!, where she plays Mrs. Turner (Timmy Turner's mom). The movie premiered July 9, 2011, at 8 pm (ET/PT), on Nickelodeon. This was followed by A Fairly Odd Christmas on November 29, 2012.

Most recently, Rothery has been acting in theater in her native Vancouver — appearing in Kiss Me, Kate and The Taming of the Shrew in March 2006. In March 2007 she appeared in A Delicate Balance, a play by Edward Albee, for which she was nominated for a Jessie Richardson Theatre Award.

Rothery starred in the Canadian premiere of Good Boys and True, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and directed by Jeff Hyslop. The play ran at the Firehall Arts Centre in Vancouver in 2009.

Rothery has been nominated for four Leo Awards. In 2004 she was nominated in two categories: Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series for the Stargate SG-1 episode "Lifeboat", and Best Guest Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series on The Collector.[4] In 2008 she was nominated in the category: Best Performance by a Female in a Short Drama for her work in the short film Coffee Diva.[5] In 2009 she was nominated in the category: Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series for the episode "Sound of Loneliness" from The Guard.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"It’s always scary whenever a screenwriter thinks of the production executive who will oversee their script. But M. Dal Walton III joins me for Episode 22 to tell you why screenwriters have nothing to fear. Dal has served for years as production executive guiding movies such as “Narc”, “Once Fallen”, “16 Blocks” and “Righteous Kill.” Dal tells us about how a production executive is there to help a script become the best movie possible. Yes, it’s true – they’re actually on the screenwriter’s side!

Dal has also worked as a manager for years and goes into detail about the manager/screenwriter relationship. Dal is now moving to the other side of the desk becoming a director and writer himself. Having seen many changes in the business over the years, Dal gives some great observations about why this is one of the best times to be screenwriter or director in Hollywood. An invaluable and experienced source of how it works inside a production company, Dal is very generous here with his insight. This interview is helpful to screenwriters everywhere whatever their skill level. Grab a pen, take some notes and enjoy."

This December I’m going to run all Christmas-themed shows.  We begin with another episode of Fibber McGee and Molly.  This episode is nearly 70 years old, but we see that some things never change.  Fibber and Molly have to go to the post office to mail off some Christmas presents, and the lines were just as long and annoying then as they still are today.  Then Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson recounts another of The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.  It’s Christmas Eve and the good Doctor has agreed to dress up as Santa Claus (uh, Father Christmas) for a children’s party.  Will Holmes get to spend a quiet evening at home?  Not on your Fezziwig . . .

Robert Picardo (born October 27, 1953) is an American actor. He is best known for his portrayals of Dr. Dick Richards on ABC's China Beach, the Emergency Medical Hologram (EMH), also known as The Doctor, on UPN's Star Trek: Voyager, The Cowboy in Innerspace, Coach Cutlip on The Wonder Years (where he received an Emmy nomination), Ben Wheeler in Wagons East, and as Richard Woolsey in the Canadian-American military science fiction television series Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe.

Robert Picardo (nickname: Bob) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the son of Joe Picardo. Robert is of Italian heritage, with his father's family originating from Montecorvino Rovella, Salerno and his mother's parents originally from Bomba in Abruzzo. Picardo claims that one of the highlights of his life was visiting both ancestral towns with his daughters and his brother Joe in the summer of 2011. He graduated from William Penn Charter School in 1971 and originally entered Yale University as a pre-medical student, but opted to act instead. He ended up graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Drama from Yale University. Picardo is an accomplished singer. While he was at Yale University, he was a member of The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus, the second longest running undergraduate a cappella group in the United States. After his degree, he enrolled at the Circle in the Square Professional Theater Workshop.

He waited tables for a few of years until his theatrical work started to take off around 1976. His first break was appearing in the David Mamet play Sexual Perversity in Chicago,and with Diane Keaton in The Primary English Class.In 1977, he made his Broadway debut. He appeared in Gemini (1977) and Tribute (1978). During the 1988-1991 television seasons, Picardo was simultaneously seen on the ABC Vietnam series China Beach in the role of Dr. Dick Richard, as well as the ABC series The Wonder Years in the role of Coach Cutlip, and is among a small group of television actors to achieve notice on two television series at the same time.

Picardo made his feature film debut as Eddie Quist, the serial killer werewolf in the Joe Dante film The Howling (1981). He also had a recurring role in the sitcom Alice. He played a number of roles in Dante's family science fiction film Explorers (1985), and later appeared in Dante's The 'Burbs, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Matinee, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Small Soldiers and Innerspace as the Cowboy.

He voices Pfish in two Pfish & Chip shorts as seen on Cartoon Network's What-A-Cartoon! Show. Picardo also portrays the voice of the robotic Johnny Cab in Total Recall. He appeared in one episode of ER in 1995 as Abraham Zimble (Season 2 - Episode 6 "Days Like This"). In the early 1990s, Picardo had a brief role as Joe "The Meat Man" Morton, a butcher and neighbor to Tim Allen's character on the popular sitcom Home Improvement.

From 1995 to 2001, he played the role of the Emergency Medical Hologram (EMH) and Emergency Command Hologram (ECH) in the television series Star Trek: Voyager. Before being accepted for this role, Picardo initially auditioned for the role of Neelix.[5] He later also directed two episodes. He also played additional versions of the role of the EMH in the 1996 motion picture Star Trek: First Contact and the 1997 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Doctor Bashir, I Presume?". In 2001, he guest starred in 7 Days episode "Revelation", purporting to be a time traveler from seven years in the future.

In 2004, he began playing the recurring role of International Oversight Advisory (IOA) member Richard Woolsey in both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, where he became a regular in the fifth season. His first appearance in those series was in the Stargate SG-1 episode "Heroes (Part 2)". In 2007, he played Principal White in Ben 10: Race Against Time. In 2007, he starred in the independent feature film by director Russ Emanuel, "P.J.", alongside John Heard and Vincent Pastore.[6] He also more recently starred in Russ Emanuel's "Chasing the Green" (2008), alongside William Devane, Jeremy London and Ryan Hurst.

He also appeared as a recurring guest star in two episodes of Season 7 of Smallville.

 

Away from acting, Picardo is a member of the Board of Directors' Advisory Council of The Planetary Society, where he has served since the late 1990s. In 2002, Picardo authored the book The Hologram's Handbook, published by Pocket Books. Other career highlights include performing in Leonard Bernstein's Mass in D during its European debut tour, performing with the Yale University Society of Orpheus & Bacchus a cappella singing group as an undergraduate, and appearing in dozens of other television and film roles, including the film Our Last Days as Children. On February 5, 2008, it was announced that Picardo would be joining the regular cast of Stargate Atlantis full-time for the series' fifth and final season. He will be taking over the role of mission commander of the Atlantis Expedition. Recently, Picardo performed the voice of Loki in the Xbox 360 video game Too Human. In 2009, he also appeared in Pushing Daisies, Chuck and Castle. Also in 2009, he played the lead role in the independent psychological thriller film Sensored.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"We kick off December with Episode 21 of the HTD Express. Simone Bailly is an actress who’s worked across many genres in television and film. You’ve seen her in recent sci-fi icons like “Stargate: SG-1,” “Battlestar Galactica” and “Smallville.” But she’s also appeared in dramas like “The L-Word” as well as a new independent feature about modern romance “Life Partners” alongside Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) and Gillian Jacobs (Community). This being the digital age, you can rent “Life Partners” on itunes right now but it also opens in theatres this Friday, December 5th, 2014.

Simone has experienced the acting industry in both Vancouver and Los Angeles. She shares with us an actor’s perspective on how to approach character. For screenwriters everywhere, this conversation offers a new angle of looking at your scripts. Simone tells us exactly what goes through the mind of the person who is handed a script and tasked with bringing characters to life. We also talk about the pros and cons of taking risks to stand out from the crowd. There’s a lot of insight in here about how close acting and screenwriting actually are. Enjoy."

Welcome to the SciFi Rewind:

Firefly Firefly is an American space western drama television series created by writer and director Joss Whedon, under his Mutant Enemy Productions label. Whedon served as an executive producer, along with Tim Minear. The series is set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system, and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of Serenity, a “Firefly-class” spaceship. The ensemble cast portrays the nine characters who live on Serenity. Whedon pitched the show as “nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things”. The show explores the lives of a group of people who fought on the losing side of a civil war and others who now make a living on the outskirts of society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system. In this future, the only two surviving superpowers, the United States and China, fused to form the central federal government, called the Alliance, resulting in the fusion of the two cultures. According to Whedon’s vision, “nothing will change in the future: technology will advance, but we will still have the same political, moral, and ethical problems as today”

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"I’m delighted to welcome Tom Grey, the director & producer of the Player Piano video series to the show this week. Working alongside him is classically trained composer & pianist Sonya Belousova. They’ve combined their talents to create videos that don’t just cover songs, but add new dimensions to them on the piano and in a video setting. For those of you who miss music videos, you will love Player Piano. So far, they’ve covered “Kaneda” from Akira, “The Unknown Waltz” by David Arnold and that Russian folk song that would be stuck in your head after hours of playing Tetris.

Tom and Sonya’s innovative work has garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Stan Lee, Felicia Day and the Nerdist. They’ve just launched an Indiegogo campaign to take this exciting new venture to the next level. In this interview, you’ll hear how this all started and how each of the videos are made. There’s also some good advice in here about collaboration and embracing production limitations as opposed to letting them stop you. A great listen for people endeavoring to make their own shorts and indie films. Enjoy."

For Thanksgiving, it’s two comedy episodes (because there just aren’t any good OTR dramas about Thanksgiving except dramatizations of The First Thanksgiving).  First off, meet Eve Arden in Our Miss Brooks, where she plays a refreshingly sardonic high school English teacher who’s not above occasionally offering a zinger at the expense of her students.  As Thanksgiving approaches, more and more people invite themselves to her place for dinner – where there’s nary a turkey to be found.  Then Jack Benny attends that great Los Angeles event, the annual pre-Thanksgiving football game between UCLA and USC.  Jack, Mary, and Dennis drive out to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Dennis gets lost, and Jack bumps into Frank Fontaine, doing his character of Mr. Silvoney, the inspiration for Pete Puma from the Looney Tunes cartoons.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"Are you tired of all the shopping hype at this time of year? Do you think we sometimes lose track of what the holidays are about? Do you wish there was something to remind people to be more charitable to those in need? Great news – we’re spreading the word of Snack Friday. Instead of spending all day mobbed in stores on Black Friday, maybe it’s better to give making it Snack Friday.

Spearheaded by my friend, colleague & podcasting guru Dan Lackaye of the Dan & Travis show, Snack Friday is all about remembering there’s those less fortunate than the rest of us who need help during this wonderful time of year. Instead of waiting for hours and risking getting trampled for a big screen or a toy that will break by New Year’s, how about taking some time and give to your local food pantry, shelter, humane society or charity of our choice.

Everyone wants to give and help out local charities. But let’s be honest, we’re ALL super busy this time of year and often forget to take some time to contribute. This is a great way to mark your calendar to take some time and help those who are struggling. And if there’s anything the last 6 years have taught us – it’s that you never know when those struggles will hit.

Dan and Travis joined me for a special mini-sode and we talked for half an hour about what you can do to help out your neighborhood.

If you love this idea like we do, don’t be shy about spreading the word everywhere on social media. Let’s all help put the charity and giving back into the holiday season:"

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"What does it take to make an animated show? I honestly have no idea. Fortunately, my guests this week know a ton about it. Thomas Krajewski (not pronounced as it’s spelled) and Jennifer Muro are a pair of animation writers. They also happen to be developing live-action material, are very knowledgable on all things nerdy & geeky and are married to each other!

Tom and Jen each have over a decade of experience writing and developing animation shows. They give us a nuts and bolts look behind the scenes of how story ideas are drawn to life. But also how writing animation has helped them when it comes to branching out into writing live-action with an effective economy of words. Before writing scripts, Jen worked in development writing bibles for numerous shows. Tom was nominated for an Emmy in Outstanding Writing In Animation for his work on Nickelodeon’s “The Fairly OddParents.” And recently his live-action script was a finalist in the Page Awards and a winner in the Script Pipeline Screenwriting Contest.

And we also geek out about Doctor Who & Buffy The Vampire Slayer while agreeing that the world is ready for more female action heroes. Tom & Jen are smart, fun writers making this a smart, fun listen. Enjoy!

Aired November 2/3, 1966

It's election season once again and the fair citizens of Gotham City have the opportunity to vote for mayor.  It would appear that Mayor Linseed would easily win as he is a fine, upstanding politician, but then the Penguin throws his top hat into the ring.

 

 

As with any political process, something new gets the attention of the public, even that of an arch-criminal running for office.  There can only be one man who can stand up to this political machine - Batman.

 

 

Joining John to discuss this unusual episode that has many of the tropes of a Batman episode save for any real crime solving is writer/editor Glenn Greenberg.

Eve Myles

In 2000 Myles took on the central role of Ceri Owen (Née Lewis) in the BBC Wales drama Belonging. Her longest role to date, Myles played Ceri from the series' first episode through to its final series in 2008; returning for a one off special in 2009. In 2001, Myles undertook a role in the television film Score and the TV mini-series Tales from Pleasure Beach. From 2003, Myles based herself in Stratford upon Avon, initially playing Lavinia in the Royal Shakespeare Company production of Titus Andronicus, for which she received the Sunday Times Ian Charleson award in 2004. She has also played Bianca in The Taming of The Shrew and in 2005, appeared opposite Michael Gambon in Henry IV, Part I and II at the National Theatre. Myles appeared in the ITV drama Colditz in 2005.

She took a supporting role in the Doctor Who episode "The Unquiet Dead", playing servant girl Gwyneth. This brought her to the attention of Lead Writer Russell T Davies, who would progress to create and produce Torchwood. Considering her to be "one of Wales' best-kept secrets", Davies wrote the role of Gwen Cooper in Torchwood specifically for Myles. Speaking on her casting, Myles stated that having the part written for her was like having her "own personal Oscar." Gwen, an audience surrogate character, is characterised by Myles as Torchwood's "social worker", who "can run and fight and stand in her own corner and win." Her role in Torchwood also led to Myles making a second appearance in Doctor Who, for its Fourth series' finale, alongside Torchwood co-stars John Barrowman and Gareth David-Lloyd. Myles has appeared in every episode of Torchwood.

Myles also appeared in the premiere episode of Merlin, called "The Dragon's Call" where she played Lady Helen of Mora and Mary Collins, a witch who impersonated her. Her performance in this role was described positively by Anthony Head, who said that 'she did it dead straight and very scarily. There was one moment she was delivering a speech to me in full prosthetic make-up... The French background artists didn’t speak English but burst into applause at the end because they were moved by the emotion of it.’

She portrayed the character of Maggy Plornish in Andrew Davies' 2008 adaptation of Little Dorrit, which later went on to win seven Emmy awards. Early 2008 also saw the actress host a radio show centred around Welsh boxer Joe Calzaghe and narrate a short story, Sorry for the Loss by Bridget Keehan, both airing on BBC Radio Wales.

2009 saw her star in the award winning independent Welsh film A Bit of Tom Jones as well as the one-off Drama, Framed, for BBC Wales, alongside Trevor Eve. In July 2010, Myles announced she would appear in an original BBC Cymru Wales TV series, Baker Boys, co-written by Helen Raynor and Gary Owen and airing in early 2011. 2011 also saw Myles provide the voice of the Dalish elf Merrill in the Bioware video game Dragon Age 2. In July 2011, to coincide with Torchwood's fourth series Myles presented part of a BBC Wales Documentary entitled Wales and Hollywood, which featured the actress travelling to the Hollywood Walk of Fame to find the Welsh talent honoured there.

 

In 2012 Myles returned to the stage in Zach Braff's play All New People, ran for ten consecutive weeks at the West End's Duke of York's Theatre following runs at the Manchester Opera House (8–11 February 2012) and the King's Theatre in Glasgow (14–18 February). In 2013 she took the title role in the BBC1 drama Frankie, filmed in Bristol, which follows the life of a district nurse who cares more about her patients than her own life.

John and Dan Greenfield of the 13th Dimension website complete the week of special podcasts by putting together ten stories from Batman 1966 that should be included in any marthon viewing.  As the DVD and Blu-Ray sets are about to come out and the holidays are approaching, maybe it's time to sit around the TV with the family and have some fun fighting crime with Batman and Robin.

Comment on the episode here or write batcavepodcast@gmail.com.


Dan Greenfieldis the editor and co-creator of 13thDimension.com, a website devoted primarily to comics and pop culture, past and present. To him, the basic food groups are Batman, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek (the Original Series), James Bond, the Beatles and the Stones. But if he had to he'd be able to subsist on Batman alone. Channel 11 in New York was his favorite syndicated channel as a kid -- you can guess why -- followed closely by Channel 5. Channel 9 didn't really enter into it unless he was home sick and there wasn't much else on. He's married to his remarkably patient wife Wendy and his best sidekick is his son, Sam. They have two cats, Lex and Zod.

The “Self Help” section just isn’t enough when you’re facing a zombie apocalypse, but if you’re taking a scientist to DC to save the world, it could provide cover for some much needed rest (or…). Abraham is about to learn, however, that you can’t trust anyone in a world of THE WALKING DEAD. Join Arnold and Scott as they load up the gas tank with glass and chat about the latest episode: What was good, what wasn’t so good, and what sort of grade does the Doctor think the episode deserves?

Also this episode: Mack and Addy are trapped in a hellish loop that can only be broken when a dark truth is revealed in Z NATION: “Die, Zombie, Die…Again!”

AND: We chat about the very zombie-like Cybermen that featured in the DOCTOR WHO Series 8 finale, “Death in Heaven;” a collection of public domain zombie movies that Scott picked up; and a new book on the MATHEMATICAL MODELLING OF ZOMBIES by Arnold’s good friend, publishing colleague, and fellow zombie expert Dr. Robert Smith? (and yes, that question mark is supposed to be there!)

We start off November with the return of The Great Gildersleeve.  This is the episode immediately following the Halloween episode from last time.  Gildy is still in the doghouse with Leila Ransom.  Meanwhile, it’s the middle of World War II, and nice cuts of meat are hard to find due to rationing.  When Gildy procures a prime pot roast, that roast’s fate on his table is far from assured.  Then Sydney Greenstreet debuts as Nero Wolfe in The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe.  As always, Wolfe is reluctant to take any case that will interferer with his orchids, his reading, and his gourmet meals.  When a woman arrives asking him to investigate a treasure map her father has bought, he dismisses her.  Then the bodies start to pile up . . .

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"November 15th, Midnight PST will be the final deadline for the 2015 Blue Cat Screenplay Competition. I’m very delighted that due to some last-minute scheduling, the founder and judge of Blue Cat, screenwriter, director and teacher Gordy Hoffman kindly took time out to tell us about what this very trusted screenwriting contests. Blue Cat is in its sixteenth year and has helped launched numerous writing careers, including “Rodham” screenwriter Young Il Kim and “Prisoners” co-writer Aaron Guzikowski among many others.

Gordy has been a huge asset to aspiring screenwriters since he launched Blue Cat and you’ll hear why as shares some of his great insights here. Every script that enters Blue Cat gets written feedback. Gordy tells us how writers should handle and address that feedback. Gordy also tells us what a writer should be concentrating on before they enter any contest. The good news, it’s all about the writing and not marketplace dictates. If you’re an aspiring or amateur screenwriter, inside or outside LA, looking for a door to get into the business, contests like Blue Cat are a great way. Find out why here and Enjoy!"

Dan Persons says:

A break from the standard Halloween fare of mad slashers and paranormal infestations, the new film HORNS brings a decidedly hometown slant to an examination of the good and evil that lives in all of us. Daniel Radcliffe plays Ig, a man (yes, man — we’re a long way from Hogwart’s) whose status within his small town after he’s accused of murdering his girlfriend isn’t at all helped once he starts growing a very Satanic pair of horns on his head. That these new appendages also compel people to confess their darkest desires and allow Ig to control their actions could be the double-edged sword that indicts him for his sins, or helps him find his love’s true murderer.

Director Alexandre Aja takes the wry intensity he brought to such projects as the remake of THE HILLS HAVE EYES and PIRHANA 3D, and turns it to a more Stephen Kingesque pallet with HORNS — not surprising, since the original novel was written by King’s son, Joe Hill. I got a chance to talk with Aja about his decision to steer his style in a new direction, working with Radcliffe, and more in this latest podcast. Click on the player to hear the show.

Is Danny dead? The Nethersphere may be an afterlife (or just more life), but it may also hide a much darker secret, with water that obscures the inorganic shell around skeletons in a honeycomb of tombs, and a leader that has clearly gained mastery of Time Lord technology. When the Doctor learns who and what is behind this new threat to all of humanity, he might wish he was dead! Scott and Arnold have two hearts, and they both belong to you as they discuss the first part of the Series 8 finale for DOCTOR WHO!

Dan Greenfieldis the editor and co-creator of 13thDimension.com, a website devoted primarily to comics and pop culture, past and present. To him, the basic food groups are Batman, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek (the Original Series), James Bond, the Beatles and the Stones. But if he had to he'd be able to subsist on Batman alone. Channel 11 in New York was his favorite syndicated channel as a kid -- you can guess why -- followed closely by Channel 5. Channel 9 didn't really enter into it unless he was home sick and there wasn't much else on. He's married to his remarkably patient wife Wendy and his best sidekick is his son, Sam. They have two cats, Lex and Zod.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"All Hallow’s Eve is upon us soon and if you’re like me, you want to watch, rewatch or discover some horror movies this week.  To that end, I’m very excited that Rick Dominicus sat down with me this week to discuss that very subject. Rick’s been working in Hollywood for over 14 years now as a librarian, archivist and assistant editor for hit shows like “WWE Legends House,” “The League” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” An assistant editor does not get the editor their coffee and dry cleaning. The job of an AE is actually managing and organizing enormous volumes digital media making it efficiently accessible.

When he’s not making editors lives easy, Rick is making his own life and his friends’ life easier with a vast collection of movies from all over the world. Rick puts the word “cinephile” to shame and he kindly took time from his hectic workload on the reality show staple “Shark Tank” to give us a detailed guide on both iconic and hidden gem horror movies. Films from Europe, the far east and from various generations are discussed. And in the end, we transition from horror to horrifying as we delve into movies that challenge the bravest viewers from whatever time of year. A great listen for anyone looking to discover movies off the beaten paths."

DANIEL LOGAN - ACTOR

STAR WARS - ATTACK OF THE CLONES

Daniel Logan, born in New Zealand, started acting when he was 10 years old. He got his break when Auckland children's rugby teams were being scouted to find a boy for a TV commercial. After auditioning with hundreds of other young rugby players, Daniel got the part, his first acting role, playing a little boy who gets knocked into the mud by Auckland rugby star Michael Jones. He was noticed by other casting agents and that break led to more commercials and TV appearances, including a recurring role in episodes of the New Zealand medical series "Shortland Street" and a guest appearance in international hit "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys." Daniel also starred in the short film, "Falling Sparrows" and provided the lead & supporting voices in 2 animated series' "Tamota" and "Takapu." He also had a part in "The Legend of Johnny Lingo."

At the top of this young actors growing resume sits "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones," with the coveted role of Boba Fett. Playing Boba Fett required more then a love of action, it also required patience. Daniel recalls being next to blue and green screen back drops through seemingly endless special effects takes. At one point, a series of 82 different shots of Daniel were done for a special effects sequence of clones that would only last a few seconds on-screen. He knows all the work was worth it, and is very proud and honored to be a part of the Star Wars legacy.

 

ATTENDING PROFESSIONALS

ALBIN JOHNSON - FOUNDER OF THE 501st - Vader's Fist

In 1997 Albin Johnson was coping with the loss of a leg from a car accident when he heard the news that the Star Wars trilogy was set to be re-released worldwide. Finding inspiration in the movies they loved since childhood, he and a friend set out to acquire the armor of their favorite character in the films, the Imperial Stormtrooper, just in time to appear at the movie premieres. Public response was so strong that Albin launched a website showcasing his armor and before long Stormtroopers from around the world started calling. The sight of so many dedicated troopers prompted him to recall his father’s tales of WWII and the camaraderie he shared with his fellow pilots. So Albin created a fictional Imperial unit named the 501st service to Darth Vader himself, and re-launched the website as a gallery for displaying pictures of his fellow costumers in the role of heroic soldiers.

 

Over night the 501st, which Albin nick-named “Vader’s Fist”, became a Star Wars sensation among fans and in thirteen years grew to over 5,000 members in 43 countries. Today the 501st recognized part of the Star Wars universe. The Legion works closely with Lucasfilm and its partners on projects large and small. The Legion’s local units, called Garrisons, volunteer in their communities and engage regularly in charity work. In 2007 George Lucas invited 200 of the 501st Pasadena Rose Bowl Parade. Today the group continues to spread the magic of Star Wars at product releases, conventions, children’s hospitals, and charity events.

 

Albin has also started a version of the 501st Galactic Academy. The Academy website showcases pictures of young fans who want to get in on the fun. And in 2006, following the death of his daughter Katie from brain cancer, Albin’s family was honored by another Star Wars club, the R2 Builders, when they answered Katie’s wish to have a pink version of R2-D2 named after her. R2-KT was born, and soon after she was inducted as an actual character in the Star Wars universe when she appeared in the series Clone Wars. Today “KT” travels the country appearing at events, raising awareness of pediatric illnesses, and spreading joy to Star Wars fans everywhere.

 

To learn more, be sure to visit the 501st Legion website at www.501st.com

Shortly after graduation, Cheralyn relocated to New York to study at The Juilliard School and earned her first 15 minutes of fame performing Off-Broadway with John Leguizamo in Mambo Mouth.

Aired October 26/27, 1966

When is a Batman episode not really a Batman episode?  No, this isn't a Riddler episode.  Bruce & Dick and Batman & Robin are barely seen in the first part of this two-parter featuring Liberace as the Great Chandell.  What brought that about?  How well did Liberace fare with the Dynamic Duo?  And was there really a plot in all this anyway?

 

Chandell, with the aid of the Doe, Rae, and MiMi, attempts to get hold of the Wayne fortune by seducing Aunt Harriet and plotting the deaths of Bruce & Dick.  Can he accomplish this and rid himself of his twin brother's blackmail attempt?  (Yeah, sounds like a plot to us.

 

Joining John to discuss Liberace's performance both musically and thespian-wise is Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast co-host John Champion.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"On episode 16 of the Express, I finally welcome one of my oldest and closest friends, writer Stephen Scaia. Along with his writing partner Matthew Federman, you’ve seen Stephen’s writing and producing credits in the shows “Judging Amy”, “Jericho”, “Warehouse 13” and “Human Target.” He’s also co-written the feature-film adaptations of “Y: the Last Man” and “Ghost Recon” coming soon a to a theatre near you. These guys know how to tackle big set-piece action stories without forgetting about the core of what makes those stories great – the characters.

Stephen offers a unique perspective in this interview as he and Matthew recently adapted the graphic novel “Pax Romana” and this month released their “Dead Squad”, their own original comic book. “Dead Squad” is a part-action, part-horror, all-existential story about a group of soldiers who are surprised to find themselves alive after being killed on a mission. Stephen tells us the different challenges between adapting existing material and creating something completely new across different mediums. We also get into some character analysis for some of your favorite movies which offers great insight on how to get to the root of the characters you’re writing.

Stephen has been a great friend and guide to me as a writer. You’ll find out why in this interview which offers great advice for aspiring writers but also some practical nuts-and-bolts reminders for seasoned vets. And it’s Austin Film Festival week so of course we touch on that as well. Enjoy…

Richard Dean Anderson

Thank you to Kate R from www.rdanderson.com for allowing us to use this biography.

Richard Dean Anderson is probably best known as MacGyver, the clever and inventive nonviolent hero who solved problems in his own unique way for seven successful seasons on ABC. In his roles before and since, this gifted actor has continued to demonstrate his remarkable talent and versatility.

Richard was born on January 23, 1950 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His father, Stuart Anderson, taught English, drama, and humanities at a local high school, and is an accomplished jazz bassist. His mother, Jocelyn, is an artist, talented in both painting and sculpture. Richard is the eldest of four sons. He and his brothers, Jeffrey Scott, Thomas John, and James Stuart, grew up in the Minneapolis suburb of Roseville, where Richard developed early interests in sports, the arts, music, and acting.

Like many boys growing up in Minnesota, Richard dreamed of becoming a professional hockey player. However, at the age of 16, he broke both arms, in separate accidents three weeks apart, while playing in high school hockey games. He put aside his dreams of playing professionally, though he still harbors a deep love for the sport. Richard talks of his restlessness growing up, his early desire to explore, and his adventures hitchhiking and hopping freight trains. At the age of 17, he took a 5641 mile bicycle trip from his home in Minnesota through Canada and Alaska, an experience which was sparked by his sense of adventure and discovery, but which also gave him a more centered sense of direction.

He studied drama at St. Cloud State University and at Ohio University, though he left just short of completing his degree. His travels took him briefly to New York City, and he spent some time experiencing the cultural revolution of the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, before finally settling in Los Angeles. There he worked as a street mime and juggler, and as a jester-singer at a Renaissance-style cabaret. He also worked for a time at Marineland, where he wrote, directed, and performed in the marine mammal shows. His job included holding fish in his mouth for the killer whales to leap up and snatch, and he tells of the powerful whack to the face he took while rehearsing his routine with an orca. He appeared in plays and live theater as well, including landing a role in Superman in the Bones at the Pilgrimage Theatre. During his early years he also joined his friend Carl Dante, and for a time sang and played guitar as part of Carl's rock band under the name "Ricky Dean and Dante”.

Richard came to national attention in 1976 as Dr. Jeff Webber on the popular daytime drama General Hospital. After five years in that role, he felt it was time to move on, and he left to try his hand at prime time television. He appeared in two short-lived television series for CBS, as the eldest brother in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers in 1982, and as a hot-shot Naval pilot in Emerald Point N.A.S. in 1983, as well as numerous guest appearances in other series.

In 1985 Richard was cast in his signature role as MacGyver, on ABC. He has told the story of how he won the role. He had been called in for an audition, and asked to "cold read" an unfamiliar script. Being very nearsighted, he asked to wear his glasses for the reading, and that simple unselfconscious gesture immediately convinced the show's producers that they had found the right man to become their unpretentious hero. MacGyver ran for seven successful years, and continues to enjoy popularity all around the world.

He made his TV movie debut in 1986 in Ordinary Heroes, with Valerie Bertinelli. In this remake of the 1945 movie Pride of the Marines, Richard gave a moving performance as a soldier who is blinded three days before returning home from Vietnam. In preparation for the emotional demands of the role, he studied with the late Peggy Feury before shooting began. He demonstrated his incredible talent for a variety of roles when he appeared in several movies for CBS television following the finale of MacGyver. In 1992 he starred as a disillusioned cop opposite Justine Bateman in the movie In the Eyes of a Stranger, and as a psychotic stalker pursuing Marg Helgenberger in Through the Eyes of a Killer. His chilling performance as an abusive husband opposite Susan Dey in the 1994 movie Beyond Betrayal caused Daily Varietyto remark, "...credit Richard Dean Anderson with a performance so creepy that masks of his character could be Halloween bestsellers." In June of 1995 he explored the opposite end of the acting spectrum with a powerful and touching performance as a father grieving the loss of his young son in Past the Bleachers, for ABC.

As MacGyver came to an end, Richard and his partner, Michael Greenburg, had signed an overall deal with Paramount Pictures to develop and produce several films and series for television for their own production company, Gekko Film Corp. In their first project, Richard acted as both star and executive producer of two MacGyver movies for television, both of which were filmed in London in 1993. MacGyver: Lost Treasure of Atlantis and MacGyver: Trail to Doomsday aired in 1994 to critical acclaim. Their next project for Gekko was the 1995 TV seriesLegend for UPN. In it, Richard portrayed Ernest Pratt, a dime novelist who reluctantly takes on the role of his literary hero, Nicodemus Legend, in a lighthearted blend of western and science fiction. Once again Richard took on the role of executive producer, as well as demonstrating a considerable talent for comedy, in what he has described as his favorite role to date.

Following the premature cancellation of Legend, Richard signed an agreement with CBS television, and filmed a pilot episode for a new rda4television series, Firehouse, although the series was not picked up by the network. His next appearance was as the heroic captain of a doomed airliner in the 1996 blockbuster NBC miniseries Pandora's Clock, which received critical acclaim and was an important ratings winner for the network. He followed this success by joining with MGM/UA and Showtime television in a joint deal with Gekko Film Corp to produce and star in the new science fiction series Stargate SG-1, based on the 1994 movie. His new series began production in Vancouver in February of 1997, and debuted to outstanding ratings on Showtime on July 27, 1997.

Richard loves to travel, and he has retained his love for music and the arts. He enjoys collecting art, with his tastes running from the French Impressionists to the more modern. He continues to play the guitar, and has even tried his hand at composing, including the original piece,Eau d'Leo, which was used in the series MacGyver. He has expressed his appreciation for both classical music and jazz, as well as the country-rock guitar style of artists such as Steve Earle, and has considered Leo Kottke to be his musical idol for years. An avid sports fan, he indulges his passions for hockey, skiing, baseball, sky diving, cycling, and auto racing whenever possible. He enjoys fast cars and motorcycles, and owns, among others, both a 1000cc Harley-Davidson Sportster and a black Acura NSX. He has participated in the Toyota Celebrity Long Beach Grand Prix twice, as well as various other racing events around the country. He has a passion for skiing, and can often be found on the ski slopes, both in his off time, and for numerous celebrity events for charity. As a huge fan of ice hockey, he is one of the founders of the Celebrity All Star Hockey team, a collection of hockey enthusiasts from the sports and entertainment worlds, who play in NHL cities throughout the country for charity. In 1988 and 1992, Richard was chosen to be the honorary captain of Team USA, the United States Olympic hockey team, and he takes pride in his opportunities to become an ambassador for the sport.

Richard actively supports many charities and organizations. For many years he has been on the Board of Trustees for the Challengers Boys and Girls Club, a youth organization founded in 1968 with the help of MacGyver executive producer Stephen Downing, and upon which the Challenger Center of the TV series was based. He is the recipient of the 1995 Celebrity Award from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and his commitment to the Foundation, an organization that grants wishes to terminally ill children, has included many opportunities for his young fans to visit the set. He has supported the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and has done several public service announcements for causes he strongly supports, including the Center for the Prevention of Handgun Violence, and Project Literacy US. For many years he has given his support to the Special Olympics, and was one of the key speakers at the opening ceremonies for the Special Olympics games in 1991. In recent years, Richard's focus has been particularly drawn to environmental issues. He has been named to the board of directors of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and he has partnered with members of Earth River Expeditions to produce the "River Project," a series of documentaries about the great rivers of the world.

Richard Dean Anderson is 6 feet, 2 inches tall, with naturally dark brown hair and eyes. He has a deep love of dogs, whom he refers to as his "favorite people," and his most constant companion for many years had been Whiskey, the Australian shepherd he had raised from a puppy, and a permanent fixture on the MacGyver set, who passed away in 1989 at the age of 13. In 1996, Richard found himself a new companion in Zoë, yet another Australian shepherd puppy and "best friend.”

Richard has never married, and although he prefers to keep his private life private, he has been linked in the past with several high-profile women, including Deidre Hall, Sela Ward, Marlee Matlin, Katarina Witt, Teri Hatcher, and Lara Flynn Boyle. In 1996, Richard met Apryl Prose, and together they celebrated the birth of their first child, a daughter, on August 2, 1998. Wylie Quinn Annarose Anderson entered the world at 7 lbs. 11 oz. Richard speaks with great enthusiasm about his new adventure of fatherhood, and takes great pride in his reputation as a doting dad. Richard lives both in Vancouver and near Los Angeles, as well as owning a cabin in northern Minnesota.

Throughout his career, Richard has made a point of selecting roles that would allow him to stretch and demonstrate the range of his remarkable skill. With additional projects in development from Gekko Film Corp, Richard's fans can look forward to many more appearances from this accomplished and versatile actor.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"This week on the Handsome Timmy D Express I am privileged to welcome Ron Greenfield, one of the most experienced and distinguished guests to appear so far.  Ron started his career as a film graphic artist, producing and designing trailers for  such critical and commercial hits like Star Trek, Arthur, Reds,  Raiders Of The Lost Ark and Victor, Victoria.  He then switched direction and went to work for CBS/Fox, as the Creative Director, when home entertainment was first beginning to make an impact as he created the campaigns that kept an entire generation of kids on pins and needles, promoting the Star Wars trilogy when they were first introduced on videocassette.

In Los Angeles, Ron served as the Senior Director of Creative Services for the legendary Republic Pictures. From there he went onto become an award winning Vice President (Marketing and Creative Services) for the well-known, Hollywood icon, Aaron Spelling (Charlie’s Angels, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Dynasty, Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place).   He also worked as Chief Marketing Officer for the firm of Software Magic, where he helped develop gaming concepts with Electronic Arts, Atari, Activision, Dreamworks Interactive, Mattel, and Lucas Arts.

Today Ron endeavors to share his knowledge and experience with people learning their way in this business. His website, www.aspectsofentertainment.com, as well as his two books are invaluable reads to anyone wanting to understand the in’s and out’s of the entertainment industry. Perspectives on Entertainment, is available on amazon.com and there is a FREE DOWNLOAD of his other book, A Sneak Peek Behind The Curtain of the Entertainment Industry, on his website.

I was delighted that Ron took time out from his busy schedule to talk with me about the creative life and how that works in conjunction with the business side of Hollywood.  Ron brings a lot of wisdom to this interview and I’m sure you’ll enjoy our talk, as I did."

Tonight's Menu

 

News: Rebels premieres,

It's another big week of TV, including the premiere of Disney's first Star Wars series.

Yes, this week we finally get a full hour of Star Wars Rebels, and we can't wait to see how the Rebellion ignites.

Movie News: More Batman v Superman pics suggest anti-Superman movement.

More photos from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice seem to indicate that humanity is not happy at all with the man from Krypton.

Comic Book Movie has posted a new batch of images -- taken by a Detroit resident named Tim Reinman, who also snapped some photos of what could be Wayne Manor in the movie -- showing what appears to be a demonstration held against Superman (Henry Cavill). Signs bearing slogans like "Super Death" and "Thanks for the 'help'" (the latter with flames underneath it) seem to indicate that there is a lot of ill will toward Kal-El for the carnage caused by his titanic battle with the minions of Zod in Man of Steel. Apparently some extras have been spotted wearing "Superman Survivor" shirts as well. They're even burning a Superman dummy in effigy!

Movie News: Justin Bieber lends his voice as Knight Rider talking car KITT in new comedy flick with David Hasselhoff

He called me and asked me for a favor and I called him back and said, "Can you do me a favour?" and he said, "Yes,"' David told Yahoo.

'I did his favor first because I love the Bieb. I think he’s a cool kid and he gets a bad rap. He’s a good guy and I like his music, I’ve known him for five years.'

Killing Hasselhoff is being directed by Darren (Diary Of A Mad Black Woman) Grant and follows a guy who tries to win a celebrity death pool by hiring a hit man to kill David Hasselhoff.

Besides Hasselhoff himself, Jim Jeffries and Jon Lovitz are attached to star.

Justin was spotted taking a joyride with the Hoff in the iconic Pontiac Trans Am in Venice Beach, California on Tuesday.

Bieber impressed co-star Ken Jeong, who chimed in: 'Justin couldn’t have been more kind or accommodating. He was just so generous with his time, and nailed the scene.'

The Baby singer wore a black T-shirt as David was seen channeling his former character Michael Knight wearing a leather jacket and aviator sunglasses.

The pair smiled and laughed as they worked.

David also sported his trademark tan and dark hair hardly changed from his days as Michael Knight in the hit '80s show.

Justin, who was born in 1994, wasn't even alive when the show first aired in 1982, but has no doubt caught repeats of the popular hit.

Trek News: Shatner: JJ Abrams Called About Possible Star Trek 2016 Role – Would Be Delighted To Do It

Today at Nashville Comic Con, William Shatner revealed that he has spoken to JJ Abrams [who is producing the next Star Trek movie] about how there "might" be "an idea" for him to play a part. We have full transcript of Shatner’s comments and video below.

Shatner: JJ Called me about Star Trek 2016 – There ‘might’ be a part

Today at his panel at Nashville Wizard World Comic Con, William Shatner talked about the recent rumor about a role for him in the 2016 Star Trek movie. It started when he was asked a question which wasn’t actually directly related to the rumor, but only if he had any interest in reprising the role of Kirk. Here is Shatner’s full answer:

Shatner Asked To ‘Keep Quiet’ About Star Trek 2016+ Orci Says Role Must Be ‘Worthy

Over the weekend William Shatner confirmed he had been contacted by JJ Abrams about how there "might" be a role for him in the 2016 Star Trek movie. Today Shatner has revealed that he has been contacted again and told to stop talking about Star Trek. Details on that below, plus how the media is covering Bill’s weekend revelation, and there are some new comments from Orci here at TrekMovie and Bill and Orci are also tweeting to each other.

Here’s my dilemma, I was cautioned not to speak about this and the next day it was out all over Twitter. ‘So I talked about it and then I get another phone call telling me to keep quiet again! All I can say is that I’m very excited about the film."

Orci: Role must ‘be worthy’

The director of the upcoming Star Trek movie Roberto Orci has again engaged fans here at TrekMovie.com and has dropped a couple of interesting comments about Bill over the last day. First was this exchange…

Ralph Pinheiro – September 28, 2014

If it is true, I hope it was a very good idea and as Shatner said: “If it is meaningful”.

I don´t want Bill or Nimoy coming back just with a good idea for sweep.

While the intention is good, It could potentially wreck everything.

—————————————————————————–

boborci – September 28, 2014

[@Ralph Pinheiro]. exactly.

I would never waste my hero’s time. Must be worthy of them if you’re gonna go for it.

Great Dr. Who Quotes

1. “Through crimson stars and silent stars and tumbling nebulas like oceans set on fire; through empires of glass and civilizations of pure thought, and a whole, terrible, wonderful universe of impossibilities. You see these eyes? They’re old eyes. And one thing I can tell you, Alex… Monsters are real.” – The Doctor  (Smith)

2. “It’s like when you’re a kid. The first time they tell you that the world’s turning and you just can’t quite believe it ’cause everything looks like it’s standing still… I can feel it: the turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at 1,000 miles an hour and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67,000 miles an hour, and I can feel it. We’re falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go… That’s who I am.” – The Doctor ( Eccleson)

3. When you wake up… I’ll be a story in your head. But that’s okay. We’re all stories, in the end… just make it a good one, eh? Because it was. It was the best.” – The Doctor (Smith)

4. People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.  (Tenant)

5. Oh, how to explain the mechanics of the infinite temporal flux? I know: Back to the Future. It’s like Back to the Future. (Tenant)
