The Saturn Avenger vs The Terror Robot (From The Vault)

Image
Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

This week's From The Vault feature is a continuation from last week, as I look at the second feature on the 'World of Conrad Brooks' DVD, titled 'The Saturn Avenger vs The Terror Robot'




QUICK NOTES This was made in 1996, is only 24 minutes long but has more effort than Gypsy Vampire did which was made a decade laterThis seems more like something that was made to shop around to studios to give executives an idea of what the a TV show could be likeI like the Boltar costume and the idea of him as a big villain looking to conquer the galaxy, but the heroes call on The Saturn Avenger to save the dayI was hoping this would be some sort of Lucha Libre film, considering the Avenger's mask is straight out Mexican Wrestling Despite positive views on this feature, The World of Conrad Brooks DVD is something that should be avoided, certainly check out The Saturn Avenger vs The Terror Robot if you can find it by itself or packaged…

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

It's Friday night, and we're talking Anime, in particular, episode five of Blue Seed titled 'Surprise! She's The Mother of Science'




QUICK NOTES This episode really focuses on Matsudaira, the TAC's science officer whose so obsessed with her work that it cost her marriageKusanagi comes across as a bit of a dick when he threatens Matsudaira and her son, but at the same this does show Momiji that he is doing things for her well-beingThe Aragami in this episode is a 'Jelly Fish', or so we're told, I guess it does look like one if you squintThe absorbent power of Huggies is the key to defeating the Aragami in this episode... I am not kidding

Flashpoint & Farewell To Susan - The Dalek Invasion Of Earth (Tales From The TARDIS)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement & Tales From The TARDIS...
We have reached the sixth chapter of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, and in addition to going over it, I want to put a spotlight on the final scene featuring the Doctor's granddaughter Susan



QUICK NOTES The episode was titled 'Flashpoint' and premiered December 26, 1964, with an audience of 12.4 Million ViewersFor all intents and purposes, Ian basically saves the day as it's his actions that prevent the Dalek device from reaching it's destination not once but twiceCase in point, Ian basically jams the mine shaft with some lumber, and regardless of what anyone else does, The Daleks doesn't notice this and when it goes off it takes the Dalek's saucers outThe big plot hole is: Were all the Daleks in one place?! Were they using Robomen to control the rest of the planet?! Barbara basically trying to b.s. the Daleks by saying there is going to be revolutions from Red Indians, The Boston Tea Party…
