Chris Chipman joins this episode we voyage into the dark years of Disney and come out the other side to discuss the 1979 science fiction/disaster film The Black Hole. Listen as we comment on how the movie merges the technology of contemporary science fiction flicks with the somber style and pace of older features, explore the strange religious and philosophical elements of the film's story, and imagine what would happen if Ripley were trapped aboard the Cygnus. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and Ernest Borgnine action figures.
Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.
