MS26 – Robotech 2: The Sentinels



The sequel to Robotech was as ill-fated as bridge crew of the SDF Macross…

Hopefully you remember they all died offscreen. This week, we watch the cobbled-together sequel to the cobbled-together show Robotech, and it sure is… something.

If you’d like to submit a topic for discussion, a letter, a memory you have of Toonami, or a bizarre show for us to make fun of, you can contact us at hyperspacebroadcastspod@gmail.com, or find us on Twitter @HBpod and Facebook at Facebook.com/HBpod. We look forward to hearing from you!

E15 – Robotech Part 3



Michael and Peter finally start seeing the signs of the attempt to meld Robotech together out of three different series, and… it isn’t pretty.  Peter tries to explain the unique frustration with watching a bad adaptation of something you enjoyed, while Michael wonders what could have been, had neither known about Robotech’s unique origins.

Next week: Robotech episodes 37-48


E14 – Robotech Part 2



In the second block of Robotech, Michael continues to dislike the main characters and complains about villain decay.  Meanwhile, Peter discusses the bizarre death of Roy Fokker (spoilers, I guess?).

Next week: Robotech episodes 25-36


E13 – Robotech Part 1



Taking a trip back further than usual, in this episode we discuss Robotech, a series with a strange history.  Michael confuses Roy and Rick, Peter quibbles about small changes, and both speculate on how melding three series that don’t share canon into one could possibly work out.
