Description

Hosted by Glenn and his very special guests, this podcast is a virtual trip back in time to the halcyon days of our childhood - the 1980s (and early 1990s). Every week we explore at least one facet of 80's pop culture, discuss questions from our listeners, and report the news from at least 4 of the main franchises of the 80's that are still around today!

Brad's back to talk about Star Wars again - and yet again, we completely forget to talk about Transformers. One of these days, we'll do that. But this is not that day. This is the day we talk about the latest developments in the Galaxy far, far away, and how much we love it. Please, join us!

Leigh and Glenn return, this time to look at a story that may have some significance in the UK right now, as an oppressive regime wants to move on from tragedy and look only towards false happiness... There's also an article from our good friend Jenny, we also check out the latest Who news, including a lockdown drama, and Four and Ten teaming up against the Daleks!

Andy from The Smorgaspod joins us again, and this time he's here to talk about those Knights of the Magical Light - 1987's Visionaries! From the toys, to the cartoons, to the short-lived comic and all the way back to today - should Hasbro take a risk on them again, especially as their eBay prices suggest there's a demand for them? Or has their time in the light passed? Please, join us to find out what we think! Back to the Eighties @ Twitter: @BTTEPOD Back to the 80's on Facebook: facebook.com/bttepod
Amy and Glenn take a look at 1995's Batman Forever in this episode, and discover that at it's beating heart, Joel Schumacher created a film that's far closer to Batman Begins than any of the first run of Batman films Warner produced. I know. We were surprised, too. Justice For All on Twitter: @JFAPOD Justice For All on Facebook: facebook.com/jfapod
Party on, dudes! Duncan joins us this week, to talk all about the not-heinous movie from 1988 that introduced us to two radical dudes by the names of Bill S. Preston Esquire, and Ted "Theodore" Logan, also known as Wild Stallyns; Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure! Please pull up a seat and join us, and most importantly, be excellent to each other!

Leigh and Glenn take a look at the first story of the 14th season of Doctor Who, the penultimate Sarah Jane story, the introduction of a new TARDIS set and the beginning of great change for the Doctor - the Masque of Mandragora!

Jenny from World of Crap is back, and this time she's all about the arcade ticket-spewing machines that gave so much joy (and plushie toys, rubbers and giant pencils) throughout the 80s and beyond.  From Donkey Derbys to Whack-A-Mole, to that Addams Family one where it pretends to electrocute you, they're all here.

We're joined by a new friend to the podcast this week - Timmus TSET is here, and they're all ready to talk some WRASSLIN'! If it's 80s, and it's about the squared circle, you can bet we'll be reminiscing about it this week, in the way that only we can at BTTE Towers. Now, say your prayers, drink your milk, and take your ster-I mean, vitamins, and RING THAT DAMN BELL! Back to the Eighties @ Twitter: @BTTEPOD Back to the 80's on Facebook: facebook.com/bttepod
Join Leigh and Glenn as they navigate the murky time eddies of the Coronavirus Era, and wonder why a certain former Doctor Who writer has decided to block everyone who disagrees with him on Twitter, before asking each other all manner of Doctor Who questions in order to stave off the forces of the world on perpetual pause...

Chris Vint joins us this week, he of the Masters of the Universe Chronicles and a million other worthy ventures, to talk all about He-Man and his mates on Eternia - but this time we're mainly focusing on the toys and print media - we're saving Filmation for another episode! So, if it was a toy, a comic, mini-comic and something else entirely, we'll try and talk about it here! Please, join us!

Amy, David and Glenn assemble once more to talk all about DC Comics, and this time, it's all about those people who have replaced established heroes, albeit on a temporary basis (sometimes, more than once!) What do you think of our picks? Who would you choose? Let us know, and we'll discuss them on the next episode! Justice For All on Twitter: @JFAPOD Justice For All on Facebook: facebook.com/jfapod
Andy from the Smorgaspod is back once again, and this time we're chatting all about GI Joe! Or Action Force, as we would have known it in the UK up until 1990. We talk about it's early beginnings as an offshoot of the Action Man line, all through the various Hasbro influenced changes, the comics, the cartoons, and beyond! Please join us, or Baron Ironblood might get you! Back to the Eighties @ Twitter: @BTTEPOD Back to the 80's on Facebook: facebook.com/bttepod
Leigh and Glenn are back with more Doctor Who ramblings, this time with a double whammy of the gloriousness of Donna Noble from Modern Who - and with the sad news of the passing of Pip Baker, we take a look at one of their most famous stories, from the Trial of a Time Lord cycle, it's murder on the Galactic Express as we confront the Terror of the Vervoids! Nerva Beacon on Facebook: facebook.com/NervaBeaconPodcast Nerva Beacon on Twitter: @NervaBeaconPod
Duncan's back again, this time to talk about Batman, and how he was transformed in the Eighties from a Caped Crusader who wasn't all that popular anymore, into a global icon whose popularity hasn't waned since. And as it's Duncan, we also talk about stuff like Batman Beyond and the Justice League cartoons, because why not. Please join us, and give us a listen!

David, Amy and Glenn come together again, this time to talk about their favourite heroes and villains who aren't part of the "top tier", the second stringers, shall we say. This in no way means we don't think they're not brilliant, as you'll find. But they're also not the ones who continually make it into the top 5 lists, and we think that's not fair, so please, give us a listen!

Kirsty and Amy join us once more, this time to talk some Trek! Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from 1993 to be exact (it's within the remit, honest!), which also happens to be Glenn's favourite Trek series. Please join us to see why Sisko is the best captain, Worf was better here than on TNG, and believe that Garak really IS just a humble tailor. Honest.

Leigh and Glenn take a look at two Doctor Who stories this week - from 1977, it's The Invisible Enemy (otherwise known as that story where K-9 first appears) and Heaven Sent (otherwise known as one of the best Who outings EVER). We also do our usual reminiscing about everything Who, so please join us and forget the world just for a little while!

Jenny from World of Crap is back with us, this time to talk all about one of her favourite subjects, that of Rainbow's very own Bungle Bear, and this time, it's all about those brave souls who have portrayed him over the years (and one who definitely didn't, but had to announce that fact). We also mention Jenny's Kickstarter to produce a shiny new World of Crap Annual, so keep your eyes peeled for that - coming soon!

We're back - yes it's been a while, but Justice For All is back with you. In this first episode back it's all about catching up, with DC comics, movies, TV shows, and various other media! Yes, we also talk about Marvel's New Warriors. How could we not? Justice For All on Twitter: twitter.com/jfapod Justice For All on Facebook: facebook.com/jfapod
It's episode 400! And I wish that the circumstances of that were better than they are right now, because it's weird out there right now. But Back to the Eighties will be going for the duration, so stay tuned! This week sees myself and John "Bordersdude" Grieve take on a subject often neglected here, that of the Centurions, those men and machines that, when combined, become power EXTREME!

TRIPPLE JAY

Love the intro. Can't go wrong with rock version of back to the future. Got my head bopping. So proud I was born in 1980.
