The search for the Key to Time takes the ESW crew to Zenda, er, Tara. Mike, Mike, Jen, and Mary see if Mary Tamm playing a total of four parts can equal over half of Tom’s screen time in this story. Plus, we preview some upcoming local Doctor Who themed conventions.

Flopcast episode 249! In honor of Champion Crab Races Day, we recall weird pet hermit crabs, weird comic book ads for Crazy Crabs, and weird late night calls for crab rangoon. And to keep a weird animal theme running through the whole show, we also have a lobster-inspired round of “What’s in the Bag,” and Kornflake reports on her visit to Zoo Creatures in Plaistow, New Hampshire. Stop by and make friends with the goats, eels, snakes, skinks, a turkey, and yes, a kookaburra. (A little touch of Australia in the Granite State; Air Supply would be so proud.)
They say the first time ain’t the greatest, but in the case of some movie franchises, two films is one film too many. Mike, Mike, Lacee, and Alex list some sequels that were so bad, they diminished the original. Plus, Jason and Rita transmit some very exciting news about their Seekers of the Lost Worlds project and Robert Young chats up the SC Comicon! All this, along with the usual Rants, Raves, Geek Girl’s Take, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!

We are back Ladies and Gents and not a moment too soon. There’s big news in the Whoniverse as Peter Capaldi is leaving Doctor Who. We talk about his departure and who might be next to step into the TARDIS. We also give our thoughts on the passing of the legendary Carrie Fisher and John Hurt. Plus rapid fire – featuring Lucifer, Lemony Snicket, Voltron and so much more!
Cigar Nerds Podcast Episode 62: Return of xXx. Welcome to the Xander Zone. This week we get extreme and take a look at the Triple X film series and review the latest installment, xXx The Return of Xander Cage. Who’s the beter X, Vin Diesel or Ice Cube? In Science we take a look at future predictions, robot bats, a new moon, and other rocks from space. In News we complain about super bowl results and talk about new trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy, Ghost in the Machine, Stranger Things 2, John WIck 2, Fate of the Furious, and the Pirates of the Caribbean. We also smoke the new Rocky Patel Dark Dominican, and review the Victory Anniversary XX.
Flopcast episode 248! It’s time to review our long crazy day at the Boston Women’s March! (The ride into the city was crazy enough; all 175,000 marchers squished into the same subway car, or so it seemed…) Lots more friends of the Flopcast were out that day too, both in Boston and throughout the world… but the only familiar face we found in the crowd was Keytar Bear. (A bear playing a keytar does tend to stand out…) And in an effort to be completely exhausted, we also attended the ACLU benefit after-party, with awesome performances by Stars Like Ours, Carissa Johnson, and Petty Morals. (Did the whole night end with an appropriate George Michael cover? But of course.) Plus: Listener feedback from last week’s Top 4 ½ List of doctors! (Yikes, we missed some big ones.) And Kornflake reminds us to celebrate Plimsoll Line Day, because these may not be good times, but you still have to keep your head above water. (See, no matter how bad things get, we’ll just keep making sitcom references…)
For nearly 70 years, the legendary illustrator was a consistent comic book craftsman. Mike, Mike, Kevin Eldridge, and award-winning artist Mark Maddox are schooled on the artist’s impact on war stories, westerns, jungle tales, and even some super hero books. Plus, voice actor Bob Carter tries not to get tongue-tied in the Geek Seat! All this, along with the usual Rants, Raves, Geek Girl’s Take, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!

Flopcast episode 247! After a brief but vital discussion about hula dancing in the winter (we highly recommend a weather-resistant adhesive for your coconut bikini), Kevin and Kornflake present a Top 4 ½ List of our favorite doctors. Plenty of Muppets are on the list (you’d be surprised how many puppets and cartoon characters are licensed medical professionals), as well as doctors from Star Trek, The Krofft Supershow, Lost in Space, and even some doctor songs. (Apparently Doctor Worm is NOT a real doctor. But he’s still on the list, and his drumming is getting better.) But if we missed your favorite doctor (because yikes, there are a bunch of them), let us know! We look forward to all those cards and letters from angry Whovians…
One of the longest running science fiction comedies won’t smegging end! Mike, Mike, Robert Ray, and Nathan Laws board the mining spaceship to see what kind of trouble the wacky Dwarfers are up to now. Plus, ESO-Pro Wrestling Roundtable’s Jonathan Williams tries not to submit to the Geek Seat. All this, along with the usual Rants, Raves, Geek Girl’s Take, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!

Cigar Nerds Podcast Episode 61: Rise of the Underworld. This week we try not to get bitten as we dive into the world of Vampires and Lycans. We take a look at the Underworld film series and review its latest installment. In science we discuss declassified CIA reports, new organs, robot hearts, and jet pack firefighters. In News we talk about Star Wars VIII gets a title, Cthulhu gets a game, King Kong gets a universe, Cartoon Network gets a samurai and Logan/Power Rangers gets a trailer. We also review the La Amistad by Hoyo and sample the Ode To Mercy from Wild Heaven.
