Star Trek - season 1: Balance of Terror (1967) (Part 1)
Season 4, Ep. 3
Q. What does this episode of RetroTube have in common with the 1998 Belgian Grand Prix?A. Start Wreck.Now I've got that off my chest, it's time for long-term non-Trekker Adam to be introduced to two episodes of Star Trek by Heather, the world's biggest Leonard McCoy fangirl, ho boy, and how, yes indeed. And you'll be pleased to know that a) at no point do they mention the words, "Beam me up, Scotty", and b), you won't hear a single note of *that song*. You know the one I mean. We're a classy podcast.This is part one of two - they got a little bit overexcited and talked for two and a half hours. Balance of Terror is discussed in this episode, This Side of Paradise in the next.So, wearing the purple uniform of the Starfleet podcasting division, Adam and Heather buckle up and knuckle down to some serious Trekkery. Will Adam enjoy his taste of Kirk and the gang, or will he not give a TOS?Please like, rate, review and share the podcast, otherwise it's the pink smoke for you.https://twitter.com/retro_tubehttps://shows.acast.com/retrotubeemail: email@example.comTheme Music by Adam S. Leslie, aka Berlin Horse.Note: in their discussion about female characters with feminine-sounding surnames (Ensign Martine, President Roslin), our RetroTube pals forgot about the most blindly obvious example of all - Star Trek's very own Captain Janeway. Boh.

BONUS: A Hard Day's Night - (1964) Part One (Cardboard Cinema Club)
Heather and Adam have been holding out on you - only two Retrotube episodes so far this year, and the last one in April. What is the world coming to?To go some way towards atoning for this, and while we prepare our next proper RetroTube episode, here's Heather appearing as a guest on Adam's sibling podcast, Cardboard Cinema Club, talking about their favourite subject, the Beatles' 1964 film, A Hard Day's Night.It would be absolutely lovely if you would be so kind as to have a listen to some of the other episodes of Cardboard Cinema Club, and maybe even consider subscribing - there are some real corkers coming up... films from the 1930s all the way up to the present day.In the meantime, I hope you enjoy our unabashed, unashamed Beatle geek-out - and stay tuned (though not in any literal sense) for part two!https://twitter.com/retro_tubehttps://shows.acast.com/retrotubeemail: email@example.comTheme Music by Berlin Horse.
The Avengers - series 4 (1965)
Season 4, Ep. 2
Adam has always wanted to wear a bowler hat and Heather has always wanted to punch people... so what better opportunity than Series 4 of swanky spy series, The Avengers? It's British TV's most arch and knowing adventure show, and British TV's most medium theme tune - it's fine, it's sort of in the middle. Actually, I edited out the bit where we talk about it because we rambled on for two hours, and something has to get the chop, but that's the gist. But as TV theme tunes go, it certainly is one. No, it's good. Yeah, it's good, it's fine. I couldn't hum it, I always think of the Danger Man theme, which is the one from Mark and Lard. (Don't tell Heather I said this, she thinks it's the the bee's knees. Actually, she thinks it's the bees' knees, plural, that's how good she thinks it is.)Anyway, it's The Avengers, and we don't mention a certain superhero property once, not even once - aren't you proud of us?Please like, rate, review and share the podcast, otherwise you'll be sent to a special house that's REALLY ANNOYING, so annoying that you'll say, "This is annoying", and you'll get really cross and have to drink some brandy and also have a fight with a Welsh person who looks like Peter Baynham.https://twitter.com/retro_tubehttps://shows.acast.com/retrotubeemail: firstname.lastname@example.orgTheme Music by Adam S. Leslie, that is also called Berlin Horse.Warning: this podcast contains Bluebottle. You rotten swine you.
Batman - season 1 (1966)
Season 4, Ep. 1
Holy New Season of RetroTube! And it looks like The Caped Crusader and The Boy Wonder will be up against their most fearsome foes yet. In her vivid blue cape and spangly blue mask, Everton Girl will confound the Dynamic Duo by being all Scouse and that, and having a working knowledge of the off-side rule, flanked as always by eleven henchmen with inexplicable hairstyles and even more inexplicable blue shorts. Meanwhile, The Fop is wearing his most fey floral shirt, and is holding Gotham City to ransom by threatening to play In Search of the Lost Chord by The Moody Blues on a dastardly loop, the scoundrel. Be it sight, sound, smell or touch, there is somethink inside we need so much...It's Heather's turn to inflict her glossy 60s shows onto Adam, but will he have any tolerance at all for Batman's bright colours and frivolous plots, or will the whole thing leave him with a sugar rush and toothache? Find out in this week's exciting instalment of -RetroTube!Please like, rate, review and share the podcast, otherwise Frank Gorshin will come and be all wriggly near you. Unless that seems like a good thing, in which case he won't.https://twitter.com/retro_tubehttps://shows.acast.com/retrotubeemail: email@example.comTheme Music by Adam S.

The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast: Love Is All (1974)
Season 3, Ep. 16
It's a bonus episode, because we can't leave well enough alone.Ever wondered what that really odd animation was involving all sorts of insects and woodland creatures, set to a jaunty psychedelic rock song, which would occasionally crop up on TV in the 80s? In this rogue extra outing - it really is the last one for 2021 - Adam inflicts the 3-minute short upon Heather, and they manage to talk about it for over half an hour.
The Box of Delights (1984)
Season 3, Ep. 15
We're all jolly well going to have a splendiferous time, and try not to get scrobbled by rotters, as Adam and Heather head into a fortuitous snowfall to seek out a copy of Box of Delights... only to find that Box of Delights was contained within their own boxes of delight (no sniggering at the back) the whole time - their online TV streaming services! Hooray! Isn't that just the purple pim?So join them for the last RetroTube of 2021 (and week four of their Patrick Troughton marathon), crack open the eggnog and whiskey mac, steal all the strawberry Quality Street before anyone else can get their hands on them, play with your new Star Wars figures (I got Greedo and Biker Scout, what did you get?) and enjoy... The Box of Delights.Maria Jones says: podcasts are boring, we should all just have gun battles with the latest military hardware, and maybe drop bombs on each other, that's be whizzer! But if you must listen to silly old podcasts - yawn - then the least you could do is like, rate, review and share the podcast, before I blast you with my real Colt Peacemaker, just like cowboys had.

Doctor Who: The Web of Fear (1968) (part 3)
Season 3, Ep. 14
It's time for wispy fungus, railway tunnels, men in combat boots and really big cuddly Ewoks - The Web of Fear.Three hours in, and Adam and Heather are nearing delirium... and they're not even doing it for charity. But never mind, there's light at the end of the tunnel, ho ho, as their Season 5 overview reaches its... well, the point at which they decide to stop, anyway. 'Climax' would probably be putting it too strongly.Good news - there's no dastardly foreigners in this one; but there is a comedy Welshman. Sorry, Huw.Speaking of which, Driver Evans says: well, boyo, it's like this isn't it, I'm not going to like, rate, review or share the podcast. You can like, rate, review and share the podcast if you want, boyo, but not me, I'm not crazy, like. No way, boyo.https://twitter.com/retro_tubehttps://shows.acast.com/retrotubeemail: firstname.lastname@example.orgTheme Music by Berlin Horse. Yet another remix. Some spanking new Arturia virtual instruments, and the full compliment of the wonderful Analogue Obsession compressors - what's a chap to do?
