    RevolutionSF Podcast: Shadowy Men With 80s Hair: 80s Action TV Part 2

    The 80s were a wonderful time for action television. Every week, K-cars exploded and flipped. Lone wolves swept into our lives, saving us from mob bosses, drug lords and the occasional communist. For our second visit to this topic, our hosts, Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel are joined by Nathan Laws to discuss three more 80s action faves, Remington Steele, Knight Rider and Scarecrow and Mrs. King. The also spend some time discussing sharks, including if Canadian sharks say sorry when they bite someone. Plus Gary gives the most “meh” endorsement of a game ever.

    If you missed part 1 of our two-part look at 80s action TV, and even if you did not miss it — here’s a link.

    RevSF Podcast: 80s Action TV Part 1


    The 80s was a special time. TV was dominated by action shows, where men saved orphanages from Colombian drug lords and corrupt businessmen, usually while driving a cool vehicle. Our co-hosts, Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel, having watched more than their fair share of these shows, gathered up action aficionados Nathan Laws and Dan Haight. Also included is a special visit from Joe Crowe! They discuss the greatest contribution to cinema from the 80s, the musical montage, along with Gary’s obsession with breakfast cereal and the whole genre being a Robin Hood metaphor.

    Booze! It seems to permiate all of genre fiction. From Metaphor to Comic Relief, it exists myriad of forms. Our co-hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel sit down with Tegan Hendrickson to discuss how alcohol is used in various works of genre. They get deep at some points, and downright silly at others. It is the RevCast after all.

    RevolutionSF Roundtable Revcast 223: The Ninth Doctor

    Last year was Doctor Who’s big 50th, and as part of our look back at the Doctor’s history, we recorded this awesome episode. Our co-hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel sat down with Tegan Hendrickson and Graeme Burk to discuss Christopher Eccleston’s run as the man in the blue box. They look at the Doctor and his companions and how this season set the base for the Tennant season that followed.


    Taped before the 50th anniversary special, this episode was delayed. Some of the references are a little dated. But it’s still fantastic. That’s how we make them.
