Flopcast 151: MarsCon 2015 Part 3 – Nun Cookies

The Flopcast

Still live from Minnesota, it’s the shocking conclusion of our MarsCon coverage! We thought we’d end the convention by stuffing a bunch of crazy people into a hotel room. We did it for science. Joining us were: Blasted Bill, Ed, Bob, Tony Goldmark, Break Man Z, Mr. Tuesday, Angela, Jared, the great Luke Ski, and Carrie Dahlby! Discussion topics include: Dementia Track concerts by Luke, TV’s Kyle and Lindzilla, Power Salad, Tony, and Rob Paravonian; Kornflake’s shiny new lobster songs; The Sponge Awareness Foundation’s tired old School House Rock medley; Blasted Bill’s Stay Puft Marshmallow Man costume; bellydancing vs. wrestling; and how Bon Jovi wants to be the air for you. Then it’s time for THREE rounds of “What’s in the Bag,” featuring: weird items requested by Kornflake from the Pod of Destiny, a weird TV dinner from Bob, and weird cookies from Break Man Z for our annual MarsCon taste test. (Perhaps the weirdest thing is that, by Flopcast standards, this was a pretty normal weekend in Minnesota.)

The Truth is Out There (maybe)


Given the recent (totally awesome!) news that the X-Files will be back, however briefly, I feel the urge to re-iterate my old idea (previously discussed here in a time travel post) given that there’s a possibility for change! When a show’s over, it’s usually over, there’s no going back, and the story is done, at least officially. We’ll get six more (squeeee!) episodes to find out where Mulder and Scully (and Skinner? omigod pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease! Was Skinner still alive?) are at. As I recall, the Smoking Man won’t matter because he got blowed up real good. Am I remembering that correctly? I think I am. Anyhow, the show’s resurrected, and maybe, just maybe, there will be some actual clarification of what the heck was going on there. Continue reading “The Truth is Out There (maybe)” »

Transmissions From Atlantis 96 – Nu Doctor Who’s 10th Anniversary

JC and Rita are back and we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Doctor Who emerging from the Time War and back on our televisions. On March 26th, 2005, Doctor Who “Rose” introduced the Doctor to a new audience. It began a rise of the show to heights never before seen. We reflect back about what we liked and disliked about the last decade of Who.

We also spitball a number of topics including Agent Carter, MARVEL’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the return of X-Files, The Walking Dead and Sleepy Hollow.
