Pod Stallions 89: US Remakes of British Shows

“What do ‘Fawlty Towers’, ‘On the Buses’ and ‘Open All Hours’ have in common? If you answered ‘They’re all classic UK shows that got crappy US remakes’, you’d be right! But you’d have to add, ‘Brian & Jason also know way too much about it’. For every ‘All in the Family’, there are a dozen […]

Palitoy Talking Dalek Speaks

I was rather excited to reunite with a working Palitoy talking Dalek this past month. This toy was my first “Big boy collector mail order purchase” at the yonge age of 13, I innocently sent $25 (US!) to a classifed ad in the back of Starlog. The next three months of waiting were nerve wracking […]
