  1. Podcast 94

    4.5 of 5 stars from 4 votes.

    Every now and again a show comes along that is a little bit different! Sometimes it is the premise or sometimes it is innovation with new technology, Sanctuary was ground breaking in that it sought input from the Sci Fi community before the show was even aired and then was released for free on YouTube before being picked up by the then Sci Fi, now Syfy channel. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about what they thought of the innovations that came with this show, the interesting Canadian texture that was brought to the show and what it takes in the 21st Century for a show to make it on TV! They interview Ryan Robbins, who plays Henry Foss, the geeky tech wiz and a Lycanthrope. Ryan has been in many Sci Fi and Fantasy shows, he has an impressive IMDB. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Oz Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com and Blue Planet PR www.blueplanetpr.com.au for the interview with Ryan.

    Many of us have a favourite cartoon, animated film or Japanese anime and in that, we have a favourite character! As we watch the screen these characters feel alive, we enjoy how they react and how they come across as real, but, they are only 2D frames of some very good drawings hand or computerised and put together with sound! So what really brings these characters to life? In this episode Gerri and Eugenia discuss that, they talk about the words that are said and the actors who make them come alive with their use of voice. They talk to some of the greats in the voice actor world and have interviews with Steve Blum, Kyle Hebert, and Scott McCord but in reality they are not just interviewing these three but hundreds of characters from the world of animation! They would like to thank Bill and Adele from New Zealand, Armageddon Expo catch them at http://armageddonexpo.com/nz/ or http://armageddonexpo.com/au/ for their Australian Expo.

    In this episode Eugenia and Gerri cover about 70 years of Science Fiction from Doctor Who to Farscape to Stargate with the only actor (well as far as our research shows) that has participated in three of the longest running Sci Fi shows over three continents! Farscape an Aussie Sci Fi show deserves to be watched by so many more Sci Fi fans. With the use of Jim Henson’s puppetry, its strong characters, and how the puppets seemed like real characters with actors bringing them believably to life.   Ben Browder talks about how he wanted to work with Jim Henson’s company, loved working on Farscape, his move to Stargate and Doctor Who! Wow Ben Browder could be every Sci Fi fans ultimate actor! Thanks go to Oz Comic Con’s Carissa, Rand, and Maggie from www.ozcomiccon.com.

Why Isn't Sci Fi Mainstream? - David Faustino

Podcast90-WhyIsntSciFiMainstream-DavidFaustino.mp3

In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri discuss how mainstream TV and movie awards do not seem to want to recognise the genres of Sci Fi and Fantasy, why? So, in this episode they look at movies of James Bond, Mission Impossible and Austin Powers and more and explain why they should be classed as Sci Fi rather than just Action or Comedy movies. Why does Sci Fi get such a bagging from the movie and television awards community see of you agree with their thoughts on the issue. They have an interesting interview with David Faustino (yes “the” Bud Bundy) who talks about his time as a child star, his friendship with Corin Nemec and his role as Mako in The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra, yes even though it is manga it is Sci fi. They thank their friends Jason and Darren from Gifts for the Geek www.giftsforthegeek.com.au for the interview.
