Clear your interociter screens as Noel Thingvall joins us again to discuss the pulpy sci-fi thriller This Island Earth from 1955. Listen as we examine the changing politics in the adaptation of the story from its source novel, comment how on how the film's reputation was changed by Mystery Science Theater 3000, and detail the impressive filmography of Orangey the Cat. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and confusion over the pronunciation of Faith Domergue's name.
Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.
