E69 – The Intruder



What’s scarier than a red blob eating its way through your ship? A red blob eating its way through YOU.

This week, Michael and Peter cover the first Toonami Total Immersion Event, featuring the titular Intruder. Meanwhile, Michael realizes what he missed out on as a 9 year old, Peter bags on the tie-in Flash game, and both hosts do some reminiscing about the TOM 1 era.

Also included: The Tommies

Mobile Suit Gundam Part 1 will release on July 18th.


MS12 – Voltus V



Five teenagers. Five vehicles. One giant robot. Stop me if you’ve heard this one.

This week, we watched a terribly produced compilation of Voltes V made for American audiences. Why didn’t Toonami show more super robot stuff?

“One secret agent trained to fly like a bird in the hand is greater than five in the bush.” – Galactor, probably

This week, Michael and Peter track down the elusive G-Force: Guardians of Space, the overlooked middle child of several attempts to localization Science Ninja Team Gatchaman. Meanwhile, Michael opens the can of worms that is the dub history of Gatchaman, Peter checks out an episode of Gatchaman itself, and both hosts cringe at the antics of 7-Zark-7.

Also included: a roll-call of localization companies, uranium obsession, the dissonance of 70s animation and brutal violence

MS11 – Beast Machines



Nothing says “writing a direct sequel” like being forbidden from watching the original show.

This week, Michael and Peter discuss the totally atonal sequel to Beast Wars.

NOTE: The three-part “Revelations” episodes Michael was referring to are actually episodes 7-9, rather than episodes 6-8 as claimed.
