We start off with erectile dysfunction and robot cancer jokes before Don East takes charge in leading the celebration of the Transformers franchise. From the original 80s series to current Transformers Prime, the guys tackle pretty much everything about the sentient robots. When they weren’t talking about the Hub’s schedule changes, 80s songs, masturbation, and other bizarre topics. Joining the ride is the mysterious BloodyMarquis (aka Mr. Wednesday), who serves to add some well-needed humour.
Next week, I return to the podcast to help lead discussion on the world of independent comics.
P.S. The song at the beginning is Uncaged Czarina, and it serves as our theme song. And so we won’t have to pay $10 every time we use it…Free Royalty Free Music by DanoSongs.com.

While all things old are made new again when they reach vintage status there is has not been a astonishing amount of remakes of cartoons and franchises from the 1960s and 1970s or years prior other than a few notable exceptions such as Scooby-Doo which is constantly refreshed along with a few other timeless cartoon franchises. You do not often see remakes of action cartoons from the sixties or seventies for instance. The eighties on the hand just keeps coming back. Transformers like Scooby-Doo get more or less constant refreshes but even beyond that several other eighties series seem to keep coming back into style with vintage centered merchandise, DVD releases and modern re-imaginings.
