The Sci-Fi Podcast: Episode 41 – Bad Earth: Part One

Welcome to The SciFi Podcasta wretched hive of scum and villainy a bi-weekly podcast focused on in-depth discussion of all things science fiction. The SciFi Podcast features four hosts—Mattroid, Solo, Brain, and Station!—and frequent guests. Each episode we look at a science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

Every now and then a terrible sci-fi movie comes out and stuns audiences for years; sometimes a sci-fi movie comes out and polarizes audiences, leaving some dumbfounded while others are awe-struck; sometimes these movies become cult-classics and other times they are buried at the bottom of the dollar-bin at your local superstore.

Here we’ve got movies that reflect on Earth in the distant future; how things may be different, may be the same, or may be kooky as hell with weird things going on for no apparent reason. There’s so much to discuss, and we want to hear your thoughts about these movies, so check the comments section and leave your own.

THE SCI FI PODCAST EP 34: It Came From Planet X – Night of the Creeps

Some movies are so strange, so bizarre, so ultimately excellent that they belong in their own pocket universe of The Sci-Fi Podcast, known as Planet X! Mattroid will be joined in each of these short episodes by a special guest and together they’ll discuss a relatively unknown movie and any number of related (and unrelated) tangents.

In the first episode of It Came From Planet X, Mattroid and Movie Podcast Network’s very own Spacewolf tackle one of the greatest and goofiest movies to come out of the 80s — Night of the Creeps.

Have you seen it?
Do you like it?
Do you own it?
You gotta love it, baby. Thrill me by talking about the movie in the comments section.
