All the SciFi news you need to know
Excellent, quality weekly podcast. The show covers everything a scifi fan needs to know. News, rumors, and occasional review. The show moves along quite well, with excellent production skills.
Absolutely a show I can NOT do without. It's aural crack for the scifi geek. I have found out more diverse items of interest from this crew, than from any other 'cast I've listened to- and I listen to a LOT. Yes, they are opinionated, and that's the fun of it. Much like discussing scifi stuff with my friends over a few beers- if I could get enough of them together to do just that! I have been turned on to books, movies, and way too much tv by these pushers- and I love it! If you are looking for a show with a bit of everything that has a website and forum that expands on that everything in a huge way, this is the podcast for you. Oh, and there are swag contests, too. I love this show! You will, too.
You get what you pay for.
For what it's worth, the show is a relaxed and often entertaining diversion for fans of sci fi tv/movies presented by fans of the genre. Heavily opinionated as most fan run shows are but the hosts are at their best when conducting interviews, allowing the guest enough time to speak while still moving things along. Some concerns about show prep because all the hosts don't seem to be caught up on the different programs being discussed; I think this stifles the freewheeling nature of the discussion. Production values at the level of good student-run college radio. Between 3 and 4 stars in my book. Worth a download for fans of popular sci fi.
