LEAGUECAST #199 – BACK IN TIME: 1986

0

Throw on your orange puffy vest and Nikes, fire up the flux capacitor in the DeLorean, set the time circuits, and travel to the golden geek days of yesteryear on another special episode of the League’s series, BACK IN TIME! In this third installment, Jeff is joined by Shawn and special guest hosts Announcer Bob and Marc Lapierre of the SuperFogeys webcomic, to discuss all the nerdy films, TV shows, toys, video games, and other pop culture from the year 1986! Listen in as the guys extol the virtues of the swaggering Jack Burton, six demon bags, 12-foot-tall undead Chinese sorcerers and other Big Trouble In Little China craziness; debate which is the superior fighter jet film – Top Gun or Iron Eagle; discuss what action figure caused the G.I. Joe toy line to jump the shark; share fond memories of the launch of the greatest video game console of all time; and try to get over the traumatic, childhood-destroying events of Transformers: The Movie! It’s a nostalgia-fueled blast from the year of Aliens, Laser Tag, Labyrinth, Alf, Silverhawks, and so much more!

About Author

Jeff Carter

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
