It's a double sized episode of The Weekly Podioplex with Michael Falkner offering twice the movie releases and DVD releases than usual as he plans to take next week off.  But with all these movie offerings, can any of them knock The LEGO Movie from the number one perch at the box office, a position it's held now for three weeks in a row?  In addition, Michael offers his thoughts on the passing of writer/director/actor Harold Ramis.

Steve's friend, Kuroda, returns to ask Steve's help in finding a wolf boy that was spotted on the island Hoyoko. Oscar is against Steve going, but Steve has an angle Oscar can't argue with. The wolf boy may be the son of an American diplomat who died, along with his wife, many years before. Their son was never found. But there's treachery afoot as another team of hunters are searching the island for the wolf boy and they're not there to help him. What secret does the wolf boy hold?

Joining John and Paul to discuss this episode is Cavalcade of Awesome author Paxton Holley.

We pick up our look at the various panels from Dragon Con 2013 that Keith, John, and Michael Falkner participated in with a panel that Keith led on strong female characters in science fiction.  At least, that's what the title of the panel was, but the panelists's writing ranged in terms of genre, which brought out a richer conversation.

 

 

 

 

The panelists include:

The Creepy Hybrid Human-Ape Child Never Used in BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES

Revenge From Planet Ape! (this bizarre voiceover was appended by distributors to a cut US release of 1971′s TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD to try to convince moviegoers that the Spanish horror film was somehow connected to the APES franchise due to the tenuous visual design link between the Apes and the mummified Templar zombies in the film – trust us, the whole thing is nuts!)

ALL of the once rare 1981 Galen (Roddy McDowall) bumpers for the TV-movie repackagings of the 1974 television series (Note: Arnold refers to these in the episodes as being used for the original films, but that was incorrect, sorry!):

Kevin Lauderdale is back with a look at a documentary on the Kenner Star Wars toys phenomenon. Plastic Galaxy.

 

From the Plastic Galaxy website:

When Star Wars landed in the theaters, it introduced audiences to a galaxy filled with heroes and villains, robots and space ships, and a dizzying variety of alien life. But when the lights came up, they all disappeared...

Unless you had all the toys. In which case, the adventure never had to end.

In backyards, playgrounds, basements, and bedrooms, Star Wars toys helped kids re-enact scenes from their favorite movies, and create entirely new dangers for Luke Skywalker and his friends to face. They were lusted after on holidays and birthdays, swapped with great cunning out on the school yard, and carefully collected like fine treasures. Like no toys before them, the action figures, space ships, play sets, and props were a phenomenon that swept the nation with as much force as the film that inspired them. Along the way they transformed both the toy and movie industries, earned those behind them vast amounts of wealth, and ultimately created a hobby that, 30 years later, still holds sway over not only the people who grew up with the toys, but also an entirely new generation of fans.

Plastic Galaxy is a documentary that explores the groundbreaking and breathtaking world of Star Wars toys. Through interviews with former Kenner employees, experts, authors, and collectors, it looks at the toys’ history, their influence, and the fond and fervent feelings they elicit today.

The film, which will be released on DVD, also includes tours of some of the top collections -- comprising prototypes, bootlegs, foreign toys, and all manner of surprises. DVD extras, including micro-documentaries and extended interviews, make Plastic Galaxy a prize for not only newer fans, but also long-time collectors.

The DVD will be Region 0, meaning it will be playable on any DVD player or computer in any country. Even in galaxies far, far away...

Plastic Galaxy will be released on DVD in January 14, 2014. To continue to receive updates and news, please subscribe to our mailing list, follow us on Twitter, and friend us on Facebook. For more information, feel free to write us at info(at)plasticgalaxymovie.com, or use the feedback form.

Tonight’s Diners: Scott, Miles, and M.

 


Welcome to the Diner

If you have listened to the show for some time, we would love to have you leave feedback on iTunes. We know not all of you use iTunes, but for those that do, it helps us become more visible. If you don’t use iTunes, your feedback is still valuable. Visit our webpage at http://scifidinerpodcast.com and leave a comment on the show notes or email us at scifidinerpodcast@gmail.com We want to know what you are thinking about what we are saying and what shows you are watching.

Tonight:

We interview Larry Nemecek. Take a fondness for NASA’s pioneering “Right Stuff,” run it through a science-fiction and fandom filter with a big love of history, and toss in schooling and careers in news, theatre and entertainment—and that starts to explain the Larry Nemecek story.

From his local news perch, Larry’s annual “TNG” concordance guides caught the eye of Star Trek’s TV writers and Pocket Books all the way from Oklahoma, of all places—so much so that the ST: The Next Generation Companion became the first episode guide for modern Star Trek, twice updated, and a move to good ol’ Burbank seemed in order.

That’s when Trekland truly beckoned—and that’s where the reputation for both fan-cool and pro-savvy straight talk was born.

Please visit his site: http://larrynemecek.com/.

It’s all there: Not just articles, columns, collaborations and live events, but years of on-lot sourcing media or solo writing with the Original Trek Fact Files from the U.K., or the Japan DVD series … consulting work with the old startrek.com (and the new, as well), or seven years creating, editing and leading Star Trek Communicator licensed magazine. Most fun are consulting gigs with the Star Trek: The Experience museum and rides … exhibits like the Star Trek World Tour, Star Trek: Federation Science, Star Trek: The Tour … and DVD bonus feature projects on and off camera. A story sale to Voyager that became the episode “Prophecy” with wife Janet was a hoot as well.

And that library: years of backstage images and over 500 archival audio interviews with Star Trek’s creative lights—it all needs airing, too. Most have never been transcribed, much less published—and the great Trekland family over the years has plenty to tell. Now there’s fan films and audio plays, too … reclaiming and reinventing the roots of fandom itself, once again.

Finally, those audio tapes are seeing the light of day in Larry's brand-new remastered audio series, "TREKLAND: On Speaker," launched in 2012 with a surprise debut at the Las Vegas Convention.

And his first film is now in the works, a documentary that had to be made—"The Con of Wrath," the true story of the 1982 Houston "meltdown to miracle" featuring the original Star Trek cast, the young event producers, the dealers and the fans themselves at the "Ultimate Fabhtasy," the first Trek "rock star" arena show that did not quite go as it was planned.

On all his projects, Larry brings a wide-ranging but unique and down-to-earth perspective—including the sharing of tales as a guest and pundit at conventions across the country or the likes of Canada, Germany, England, France, Italy, Austria, and the Czech Republic, so far. Or even smoothing the way for guests, professionals and/or fans to find each other.

Just don’t try the “get a life” line … Larry is a longtime docent at the State Historic Park ranch house of his hero and fellow Okie, Will Rogers, near Santa Monica, Calif. There’s also family—you know wife Janet and her Voyager heritage from the con circuit, too—plus travel, politics, big band and classic rock and country, keyboards … and, of course, FOOTBALL. Boomer Sooner!

Despite the mixed review, the beboot of Robocop wasn't able to make a big enough dent at the box office.  The LEGO Movie continues to dominate, but perhaps a 3D epic film on the last days of Pompei may take it down.  Meanwhile, there's new DVD releases including the final season of the classic 70s series, The Six Million Dollar Man. Michael Falkner has all the movie and DVD news on a new The Weekly Podioplex.

The Penguin returns to Gotham City, but he doesn't appear to have a nefarious scheme to rob the citizens of their hard earned cash.  Or does he?  It all seems innocent enough.  He opens a protection agency, offering his services to the wealthy of Gotham City.  And very quickly, he is accepted into high society.  And even worse, Batman and Robin are caught robbing the safe of one of Penguin's high caliber clients.  What is going on here?

Joining John to talk about this unusual conundrum is RevCast host and DragonCon American Sci-Fi Classics track co-moderator, Gary Mitchel.

Bionic Wiki entry

The Six Million Dollar Blog entry

(coming soon)


Alex Green was born in San Diego where he has lived his whole life, rarely venturing outside the safe confines of Southern California. Growing up, his parents tried to persuade him that the funny man running in slow motion on the television wasn't worth watching, but he knew better. He knew much, much better.

 

A lifelong fan of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman, Alex hadn't been an adult for very long (some would say he still isn't) when he started making several trips a month up to Los Angeles to attend toy and collectibles shows in order to amass a huge collection of Bionic memorabilia. A vast collection that he no longer possesses due to an accident involving a pencil, a rabid weasel and a rapidly descending elevator (Actually, the advent of eBay in the late 90's took the thrill of the hunt out of it for him, so he gave it up).

 

Currently working out of his modest two-bedroom apartment (or twelve-bedroom mansion as he refers to it when describing his digs to people who’ve never visited him at home), Alex is a free-lance web designer and the webmaster of The Six Million Dollar Blog. The newest Bionic site on the web except for all the others that have come after. He hopes one day to meet his hero Lee Majors in person and his biggest regret in life is that he no longer fits into his Six Million Dollar Man jammies.
