Ep. 42 — Riding on Star Wars’ Coattails

Play

In this episode, Ben and Steve talk about some of the great and horrible movies and television shows that Star Wars inspired because it made so much money.

Hollywood never met a successful movies they didn’t want to rip off . . . and therefore, as soon as people realized Star Wars was a hit, studios rushed to get whatever they could to ride on those space opera/sci-fi coattails!

Disney’s The Black Hole!

Flash Gordon!

Battlestar Galactica!

And so much more!

Ben and Steve take a stroll through sci-fi movies and TV of the late ’70’s and early ’80’s . . . the best and the worst of it!

Features a bonus after the end of the episode: Ben and Steve’s live reaction to the announcement of the podcast awards!
