Today, we spread the love for the gizmos, the gadgets, the weapons, and the stylings of two of our favorite souped-up monster machines. Re-live the explosions and the cheese the way only the 1980’s could bring them to us!
Looks like the awesome SFFAudio.com site mentioned the KAMN podcast back in November, and I’m only just now finding out. I really have to check incoming links more often.
We’ll be sitting down to talk about Blue Thunder and Airwolf. We won’t be directly comparing the two, at least not for the entire show, but how can we not make some comparisons between our two favorite souped-up helicopters?
A little outside the usual topics, but I absolutely had to do this: Fear the Turtle, baby. Fear the Turtle.
Today, we talk about Roger Zelazny’s Hugo Award-winning novel, Lord of Light, first published in 1967. There are many levels to this book, and we try to hit most of them.
I’m thinking about adding a segment not related to the show’s main topic: an old school anime or game review. Thoughts? (Yes, KAMN #3 is coming very soon. Wednesday night, if editing goes as planned.) (Plans. Yeah, right. Thursday night.)
The book under discussion in our 3rd show will be Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny.
Airwolf vs Blue Thunder. Let’s hear your opinions on the show vs the movie, creatively speaking, and copter abilities, technically speaking. You can also argue for or against on whether these qualify as scifi… I always thought they were, simply because of the technology put into the vehicles at the time
I really like the planned progression from the “Threshold” to the “Foothold” to the “Stranglehold” contingency plans. It means they’re expecting things to get worse, and we’ll get to see it. That’s what thrilled me about Babylon 5… and that I’ll get to see something similar unfold in a contemporary setting has me intrigued.
ABC has officially cancelled Night Stalker, and left us with a hanging cliffhanger.
