Cobra - Bags of Action Episode 26

This is Bags of Action. The podcast is devoted to action movies, both old and new, but all of them awesome! In this episode, Steve returns and together with Pete they discuss the 1986 Stallone movie, Cobra. Steve has never seen this film before, but Pete is a veteran, having now seen it three times. The film was adapted from a novel and the screenplay written by Stallone. There are quite a few familiar faces in this film, including Brigitte Nielson, in an early role, Andrew Robinson, and Brian Thompson, the man who has been in practically every SFF film and TV show from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to Alien Nation, to Star Trek, to The Terminator, to Charmed to The X-Files.

Steve also mentions the release of his first novel, Battlemage, and plans for some UK signing events later this month. For our main feature we talk about TV shows that were cancelled too soon, what we liked about them and where we imagine the shows could have gone in later seasons or even episodes, for those cut down very early in their run.

Aliens - Bags of Action Episode 25

This is Bags of Action. The podcast is devoted to action movies, both old and new, but all of them awesome! In this episode, Scott Grandison (Comic Book Outsiders, Crash Landing) is standing in for Steve to talk about the James Cameron classic, Aliens. Shockingly Pete has never seen it before, so you get to find out what he thought of it first time around and compare that to Scott's opinion of a film he knows inside and out. Next month Steve returns to the hot seat and he'll also be experiencing a film that most people would assume he's already seen. Listen to the end of the show to find out what that is. If you would like to get in touch you can join in the discussion of all things related to action movies over on the Facebook Group or you can followBags of Action on Twitter @BagsofAction.

Comic Book Outsiders Episode 175

Welcome to Comic Book Outsiders, a comic book podcast dedicated to bringing you the very best hidden gems from the worlds of comic books, films, TV and everything else. This episode is our 175th, so we decided to do something a bit different. Normally we plan the episode in advance, make notes and have different sections planned out. This episode we did nothing. We did no planning, we made no notes at all. We also invited onto the show a special co-host, Barry Nugent, from Geek Syndicate. We let the conversation flow where it wants and it turned out to be an interesting three way discussion about a whole host of different topics. If you would like to support the show please consider leaving us an iTunes review or visiting the Comic Book Outsiders website at www.comicbookoutsiders.co for more information all of the other ways you can support us, plus links to the other podcasts on the network.
