 The aliens look like shell-less turtles
 A Star Wars sign gets blown up - a statement I suppose
Roddy McDowall plays a short-lived doctor 
 Billy's girlfriend is former Runaway, Cheryl Smith
 Billy - been in trouble with the law since the day he was born
Keenan Wynn plays a vet with dementia for no apparent reason
Kim Millford is the main character; a hunk with a dark side 
And that dark side is dark indeed.


  1. The actor playing the sheriff was not only in about every TV series of the 70s & 80s, but he was in every commercial of the 70s & 80s. The one I remember him for was a short lived candy bar called Go Ahead. The commercial featured him doing a Lou Costello imitation to a Bud Abbott-like grocer. He would describe what he wanted in a candy bar, with the grocer saying "Go Ahead" after every ingredient. A variation on "Who's On First."

  2. Laserblast! Best part os when he blows up the Star Wars billboard. Glad you included it in the highlights. Now time to give a listen to the show.

  3. The new Star Wars kind of left me cold, too. It was like those porns that spend all their time on the genitals. I wanna see the rest of the girl. Lucas & Kurtz were good at showing the rest of the girl and giving us her backstory. There's something about the way George and Gary filmed that made the SF equivalent of missionary position just magical. The Force Awakens was just constant super tight closeup Star Warsian dick and pussy shots because that's what the kids want nowadays. Whatever sells the toys I guess.

    1. You might want to take off those rose-colored nostalgia glasses there Macro. Her story has not all been told on purpose. The Force Awakens is a very strong step in the right direction compared to the prequels to the original trilogy.
