Johnocrypha: Starman - The TV Series, episodes 1-5

As a fun tie-in, over at The Super Saturday Short-Lived Showcase, Noel and his co-writer Tony are taking a look at this single season spinoff of Carpenter's classic film, where the role made famous by Jeff Bridges is now being filled by Robert Hays of the Airplane movies. As things get rolling, Starman reunites with his son, encounters woods filled with hunters, helps a catatonic Kenneth Tobey fix an airplane, fakes a UFO for Cletus Hogg, and runs into his dead body's best friend. All while being pursued by the most ineffectual government agent imaginable.

Movie
Episode 1 "The Return"
Episode 2 "Like Father, Like Son"
Episode 3 "Fatal Flaw"
Episode 4 "Blue Lights"
Episode 5 "Best Buddies"

A huge thank you to Melissa for joining us on this episode. Check out her podcasts Xanadu Cinema Pleasure Dome, A Reel Education, A Reel Education Noir, her blog, and follower her on Twitter.

As mentioned in the episode, some Xanadus especially worth a listen (though they're all worth a listen, to be honest) is their look at Nigel Kneale and the Quatermass franchise, as well as Part 1 and Part 2 from when Noel was a guest to discuss the films of John Carpenter.
