Also, expect Doozers. Lots of Doozers.

Episode 272 - Sisters Are Bustin' Ghosts For Themselves


Glenn's back from holidays this week, so it's time for a bit of a nerdy catch-up - what have the gang been watching, doing and buying over the past few weeks that they haven't had the chance to discuss yet?

Certainly expect some talk about Ghostbusters 2016, Star Trek Beyond, and all of the SDCC trailers that caught our eyes, not to mention all of the major changes going on over at the WWE.

Next week: get ready to dance your cares away.

Episode 269 - Bustin' Makes Me Feel Good


Things are a bit different this week, with Phil making a triumphant return to BTTE Towers, along with Grufflock, and even Timey's here, all to talk about one of the best cartoons to not only come out of the 80's, but all time. It's relevant too, what with the new Ghostbusters movie on the way!

Of course we're going to be talking about The Real Ghostbusters, the spin-off cartoon from the original 1984 movie. We'll talk not only about the reasons it was called "Real", but also our favourite episodes, the Marvel UK and NOW! comics, and even the toys by Kenner will get a mention.

Warning: also contains Q5.

Episode 268 - Trouble Again


This week sees the gang finally tackle Star Wars: Droids, the continuation of the Star Wars universe when there wasn't likely to BE any more Star Wars. Remember those days? Remember when there were no prequels, no Clone Wars or Rebels, not even any Timothy Zahn novels!

What a bleak universe that was. Ambassador, with all of your Star Wars, you are spoiling us!

Episode 267 - Illusion is the Ultimate Weapon


After all that's gone on the UK this week, it's nice to be able to say we WON'T be talking about politics in this episode - well not for long, anyway. We WILL however be talking about an 80's property that's getting a bit of a makeover this year!

In an age of GI Joes and Transformers, Kenner decided in 1985 that they would basically combine the two and make a superconcept - that concept became the mighty M-m-m-MASK! They're the mighty power who will save the day, and Glenn, Paula, Sam and Becca are going to spotlight them! Hopefully they won't be working overtime, though. Overtime sucks.
