Tune in and celebrate thge 50th podcast of Voyage of the Geek. And boy do we have a beauty for you, its our first 5 man show. This week, Dan, Tom, Dave, Rik and Tony step back in time and take a look at the 1978 sci-fi classic, Battlestar Galactica in all its frakin glory.
Here's another Voyage of the Geek webcast from the backlog of episodes with Rik This episode we're looking at another 80's fantasy classic, Krull. Is the main female character little more than a cinematic version of Princess Peach, do lasers belong in a fantasy setting and does Gandalf have a less well known, only half as useful brother? Tune in as Dave, Dan and Tony discuss all this and more.
As promised here's the next installment from my backlog of Voyage of the Geek appearances. This is a wee beauty as it's one of my all time favourite fantasy classics Red Sonya, based on the character created by Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan. Tune in to watch/listen to Dave, Dan and Tony poo poo all of one of my favourite films, and why open ceilings are a bad idea.

This week however is Podcast #46 Justice League -Where we look at this more contemporary bit of cinema. You can catch Voyage of the Geek on Itunes, Sticher, Twitch and Youtube.
