Old Space Show – Planet of the Apes “The Surgeon” with Russell McGee

Russel and I hit a gem of an episode. Planet of the Apes takes the hospital procedural type tv genre and really spins it into something all its own. It’s not just a tired retread as we have seen in episodes past. Russell McGee from the Big Finish Productions & WTIU-TV is the Companion for […]

The Summer of ’82 at 40 with Scott Mendelson: May 21-23, 1982

May 21-23, 1982: Our third week sees us covering a film that was very tough to find; the Tom Skerritt Death Wish inspired Fighting Back. Steven Martin and Carl Reiner experiment a bit with the goofy and charming Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid. And, one of the most beloved films from the summer, action classic […]

Old Space Show: Planet of the Apes Tomorrows Tide

Russell and I admire the nice change of scenery to the episode. We discuss this fishing slavery village our heroes infiltrate. Russell also has a bit of a theory of the potential genesis of the shark props used in this episode as well… Russell McGee from the Big Finish Productions & WTIU-TV is the Companion […]

The Summer of ’82 at 40 with Scott Mendelson: May 14-16, 1982

May 14-16, 1982: The second week finally sees something resembling a “big summer blockbuster” in the form of Conan: The Barbarian starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Another big star joins by way of political satire with Sean Connery in Right Is Wrong. There were also two horror films this weekend, slasher Death Screams and The House Where […]

Old Space Show – Planet of the Apes “The Legacy” with Russell McGee

This episode finally starts trucking some things along and making this series stand out. Not only does it have a young Jackie Earle Haley guest star, but it kind of re-pilots the show with a bit more interesting mission. Russell and I dig into this one with much optimism. Russell McGee from the Big Finish […]

The Summer of ’82 at 40 with Scott Mendelson: May 7-9

The Summer of ’82 at 40 is a weekly retrospective journey through American pop culture during May, June, July and August of 1982. Brandon Peters and Forbes’ Scott Mendelson take a weekend by weekend look at the films released during the summer as well as the news stories, television and music that rounded out the […]

Old Space Show – Planet of the Apes “The Good Seeds” with Russell McGee

“The Good Seeds” finds Galen and his astronaut pals down on an ape farm. Well, a farm run by apes. See as they help around the land while hiding out, yet have to deal with the adversary of mythic superstition. Russell McGee from the Big Finish Productions & WTIU-TV is the Companion for The Planet […]

Out Now Commentary – Face/Off (1997)

With the release of Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent this month, we are taking a look back at a stone-cold Cage classic. Face/Off was at the height of powers for Nic Cage, John Travolta and John Woo. A fine, big spectacle, high concept, high emotion thrill ride that is one of the most balls to […]

Closing With A Song “Do The Evolution” by Pearl Jam with Jonathan Graves

I had always planned to get to Pearl Jam as they are one of my favorite bands. But, I’d imagined it would be something like “Jeremy”, “Alive” or “Love Boat Captain”. Seeing as things came together with Jonathan Graves being a big animation guy and Pearl Jam having one of the most glorious fully animated […]

Old Space Show – Planet of the Apes “The Trap” with Russell McGee

What happens when ape and man are trapped under the rubble of a desecrated city with no feasible way out? Do they get along? Do they fight to the death? Do we get another that’s not a common science fiction television show trope? Who knows, but Russell McGee and I are here to dissect it! […]

What’s Up, Doc? (1972) at 50 with Jonathan Graves

Another seminal film in the history of the medium turned 50 years old this year as well and isn’t really getting the recognition some others are. Peter Bogdanovich’s What’s Up, Doc? starring Babra Streisand and Ryan O’Neal was the 3rd highest grossing film of 1972. It trailed only The Godfather and The Poseidon Adventure in […]

Announcing THE SUMMER OF ’82 AT 40!

No episode this week, but I’m finally ready to announce the big project I’ve been working on this year. So without further adieu, let me unveil… THE SUMMER OF ’82 AT 40 One of the biggest summer movie seasons of all time turns the same age I did this year and I wanted to take […]

Closing With A Song “The Freshmen” by The Verve Pipe with Greg McGoon

This one came up out of nowhere recently in a side conversation between myself and show regular Aaron Neuwirth. And then…I realized it actually kind of fit Cabaret with that theme of abortion. So, yeah, abortion week on The Brandon Peters Show, i suppose. Greg McGoon is back and we talk about the song, its […]

Cabaret (1972) at 50 with Greg McGoon

Cabaret holds the distinction of taking home the most Academy Awards at a ceremony and not winning Best Picture. It won 8, including major categories like Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography but lost out to The Godfather on the grand prize. Seeing as that film is also turning 50, loads of […]

Out Now Commentary – Batman & Robin (1997)

The Batman means it’s time for another Batman commentary on Out Now. And this is a big one as we complete a 10 year journey of doing commentaries for all of the 1990s live action films with Batman & Robin. And let me tell you, we’ve been trying to do Batman and Robin for quite […]

Old Space Show – Space 1999: “The Dorcons” with Jim Dietz

When this episode was originally set to drop, I was only saying farewell to the show Space: 1999. In the most tragic turn of events, it is also where I had to say farewell to my longtime co host of Old Space Show, Jim Dietz. Jim passed away suddenly on Monday, March 7th of 2022, […]

The Transformers: The Movie (1986) with Mike Vanderbilt

Both Mike Vanderbilt’s return and The Transformers: The Movie has been in the works for a LONG time over here on the show. We are busy guys and one thing leads to another. All of a sudden almost 7 months have passed since you were trying to set it up. Well, it’s finally here and […]

Closing With A Song “Mr. Jones” by Counting Crows with Pres Maxson

In addition to the movie this week, Pres had also mentioned wanting to do this particular music video. And I have no objection to discussing Counting Crows. In fact, it was past time to do so. “Mr. Jones” really blew up and immediately grabbed your attention when it landed in 1993. Like nothing else out […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Immunity Syndrome”

With only 1 more episode left, where could Space: 1999 go? Well, a kinda Tony focused episode and a bit of ridiculousness when it comes to some cheapness. Enjoy this penultimate episode of Old Space Show – Space: 1999 as Jim and I bask in the glorious suite they have to put Koenig in to […]

Almost Heroes (2005) with Pres Maxson

While I love to tease, hint, plant easter eggs and whatnot with the show, once in a while a guest might. And I do like to come through on those when I can. Back durin the one year celebration, Pres Maxson welcomed himself on to doing an episode about Almost Heroes. Here we are. Now, […]

Closing With A Song “MMMBop” by Hanson with Jessica Alsman

Hanson took the world by storm with “MMMBop”, building an army of Hansonites to bop the globe with. Jessica Alsman and I take a look back at this infectious little song that no matter how hard you tried, you couldn’t not have it in your head and you’d still easily belt the chorus out today […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Devil’s Planet”

We are winding down now to the final 3 episodes of the show. This is another Space Babes in Outer Space kinda episode, but it’s also a VERY Koenig solo adventure. How does that turn out? You’ll have to see as Jim and I dig into “Devil’s Planet”! And our regular reminder, we are going […]

Out Now Commentary – Sahara (2005) INFO

With the release of Uncharted, we decided to set our sites for another adventure movie that was a hopeful franchise starter from an IP – 2005’s Sahara! Now, funny enough, Scott Mendelson and I are fans of this movie. Aaron Neuwirth, he’s a recent convert, too. Have a listen as we talk about McConaughey for […]

Brought To You By Brandon & Jessica: Vintage Nintendo Commercials

During Old Teen Show: The Heights, listeners made it clear they would like to see Jessica Alsman and I discussing more vintage commercials with regularity. This time we are setting our sites on Video Games, Nintendo (NES) specifically! This was a LOT of fun to reflect on for myself and to LEARN on for Jessica, […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Dorzak”

Maya meets another psychon, but other space babe aliens try to warn her that he’s not the man she once knew. Lots of groovy things this episode; Carter has a crush, Dorzaks has some interesting apparel and a spaceship interior with lovely disco sci fi aesthetic on full display! And our regular reminder, we are […]

The Star Wars Special Edition Trilogy Turns 25 with Aaron Neuwirth

Probably not being roundly celebrated this year is the 25th birthday of The Star Wars Trilogy: Special Edition. This event celebrating the original Star Wars at 20 was a pretty big deal. Beyond the updated special effects, unseen footage and other tinkering, it was the first time many of us were able to actually see […]

Closing With A Song “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus with Troy Brownfield

Wheatus seems an odd choice for a Satanic Panic music video to tie into Monday’s episode. But a closer glance at the genesis of the song’s lyrics and you’ll see it is incredibly relevant to the topic. Troy Brownfield (who has seen Wheatus in concert) rejoins and we go over the song, the video, touch […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Séance Spectre”

This week’s episode of Space: 1999 feels oddly culturally relevant to today. “The Seance Spectre” will remind you of Q’Anon and lots of conspiracy theory nonsense that’s been traveling around the past few years. Its a pretty eye opening and entertaining piece of British Sci-Fi television from the 1970s that feels still sadly relevant today. […]

Closing With A Song “Yer So Bad” by Tom Petty with Jamie Alvey

It feels weird when I think how long the show has been going on and you are landing on a legend like Tom Petty for the first time, but thus is the beauty of it all. There’s a lot of ground to still cover in the Closing with a Song segment. Sadly the late rock […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Lambda Factory”

I appreciate your understanding on a week of no Old Space Show, but we are back to business this week. And we have a whacky one which Jim points out is capitalizing on the ESP craze that swept the 1970s at this time. While its called “The Lambda Factor”, perhaps the “The Grouchy Factor” may […]

Let’s Scare Jessica To Death (1971) with Jamie Alvey

We are sticking around in the 1970s for a second week in a row here on the show. We are talking about an underseen cult classic horror film, Let’s Scare Jessica To Death. A very stealth vampire film, this one is super moody and a complete feel through its ambiguous narrative. Regular guest Jamie Alvey […]

Closing With A Song “You Might Think” by The Cars with Yancy Berns

We are gonna start 2022 with one of the biggest music videos of all time. The Cars “You Might Think” was a marveling achievement in the art of music video making back in 1984. The ambitious visual stunner went on to be the fist “Best Music Video” winner at the first ever MTV Video Music […]

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) with Yancy Berns

And I’m back in regular form this week! At least for the time being. Life has been a bit time consuming and exhausting in recent weeks, but I’m doing my best to deliver when I can. I’m happy to have Yancy Berns finally make his debut proper on the show. If you listen to the […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Bringers of Wonder, Parts 1 & 2”

Well, we have a double sized episode for you today as we cover Space:1999’s first 2-part episode where big slimy eye aliens take the disguise of the loved ones of the crew of Moonbase Alpha. Did this need to be 2 episodes? Does it work? We go over that and many other aspects of it […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “A Matter of Balance”

Tony’s brewing habit has been one of the most odd choices to have as a constant character trait on a show that rarely focuses on them. There’s some anti-matter lecturing in this episode, a fish minotaur made from costumes used in the previous 2 episodes, a teen crush gone wrong and some set design that […]

Out Now Commentary – Scream (1996)

With Scream (5) coming out this week, the monthly commentary session cracked into the 1996 original. We take a look at this monumental moment that more or less saved the horror genre at the box office. A movie that has no problem with time capsuling a moment, but more or less holds up swimmingly, we […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Space Warp”

If you feel like this episode reminds you an awful lot of last week’s episode, you’re not alone! Many elements of our previous discussion and detail seep up here in a second week with Fred Freiberger at the helm writing it all. Hurray? And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Beta Cloud”

Ah, another alien boards Moonbase Alpha and causes some hell. Something that happens all too frequently. We begin of two Fred Freiberg written episodes that almost easily reflect one another. And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, not broadcast order. Streaming services have them in broadcast order, so […]

Closing With A Song “8 Days of Christmas” by Destiny’s Child with Greg McGoon

Well, its Christmas Eve, so why not bring some holiday cheer? Who better to ring in that joy than Beyonce….and Kelly and Michelle. Its the Destiny’s Child Christmas cheer we all wanted! Greg McGoon rejoins to help close out the year on the show with thoughts on this Destiny’s Child holiday excursion, the whacky video, […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Seed of Destruction”

Science fiction loves the concept of mirror or parallel universes and Space: 1999 becomes no stranger to that in “Seed of Destruction”. Here tells the tale of a mirror Koenig from a mirror asteroid trying to infiltrate Moonbase Alpha. Hopefully nobody will notice the bad “part” of him. And our regular reminder, we are going […]

Last Holiday (2006) with Greg McGoon

We talked about his movie last week and now he’s here to tell us about his new book. Greg McGoon is back for his fourth trip onto the show and tells us all about Once Upon A Fairy Tail, which you can purchase now on Amazon. Greg also brings a holiday fave to the table, […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The AB Chrysalis”

Another week and another solid guest star coming from the Superman franchise. Sarah Douglas graces us in the AB Chrysalis. This episode is my personal favorite of the very wonky and up and down Season 2 thus far! And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, not broadcast order. […]

Out Now Commentary – The Matrix Reloaded

The Matrix Resurrections drops in theaters this month and to celebrate the return of a franchise we all love, we turn to complete our commentary series on it (for now) with The Matrix Reloaded. We did an odd order of these starting with Revolutions many moons ago and then the original for its 20th anniversary. […]

An Unexpected Christmas with Danielle Sepulveres

This week’s episode has been planned for quite a while. Show regular Greg McGoon has had a Hallmark movie made based on a script that he penned. And I VERY much wanted to do an episode covering it. The perfect person to join for this discussion is the person who introduced me to Greg – […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Catacombs of the Moon”

We get a pretty big name guest star in this one, as Pamela Stephenson (Superman III, Saturday Night Live), stops in and plays a dying wife who appears in her husband’s fiery visions. This is a double up Barbara Bain episode, so lots of Helena and Tony while Koenig and Maya make some light touches. […]

Brought To You By Brandon & Jessica: 1990s Christmas Commercials

Ask and you shall receive! During Old Teen Show: The Heights, listeners made it clear they would like to see Jessica Alsman and I discussing more vintage commercials with regularity. In October, we gave it a spin and we had a load of fun. So here we are, back doing some Christmas themed commercials. Yes, […]

Closing With A Song “One Week” by Barenaked Ladies with Steven Schapansky

We close the show with “One Week” which spent one week at number one on the charts. The Barenaked Ladies hail from my neighbor to the north, Canada, as does my guest Steven Schapansky of Radio Free Skaro. We talk this wild McG directed video and Steven provides a wonderful perspective on the Barenaked Ladies […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “New Adam, New Eve”

We get a veteran of the Puppet Master franchise here to play God as well as matchmaker in another wacky rendition of Space: 1999’s second season. And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, not broadcast order. Streaming services have them in broadcast order, so be careful if you’re […]

This Is Spinal Tap with Steven Schapansky

Being a podcaster, people wonder what I myself listen to in the podcast realm. It’s not much honestly, but one program I never miss an episode of is Radio Free Skaro. Of course that’s no surprise with my Doctor Who fandom, but the show keeps me coming back because of its production value, level headedness […]

Closing With A Song “Informer” by Snow with Geoff Arbuckle

Well, it’s December now and with it comes…Snow! Certainly something you had to be there to believe. “Informer” was a big #1 hit from a white Canadian reggae artist. Yeah, that’s correct. This video is mostly flash, but with Geoff Arbuckle in tow I knew the conversation would fly and be a lot of fun. […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Brian The Brain”

The great Bernard Cribbins lends his voice to an overhead projector robot that puts Koenig and Russell’s love to the test! And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, not broadcast order. Streaming services have them in broadcast order, so be careful if you’re going to follow along. We […]

Out Now Commentary – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Turning 20 years old this month (WOW) is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. We take a look back at the film and discuss our experiences, the books, the filmmakers, the cast and a lot of what makes this film still tick like magic to this day! In addition to myself, this commentary features Aaron […]

2021 Blu-ray Holiday Gift Guide with Geoff Arbuckle

With the great response from this episode last year, plus my passion for collecting Blu-rays, I am doing another Gift Guide episode for Blu-rays. Apologies to the video game and comics & collectibles crowd, but there wasn’t time to get those done this year. Geoff Arbuckle of Film Seizure and B-Movie Enema joins up. He […]

Closing With A Song “Breaking The Law” by Judas Priest with Jim Dietz

Keeping with our Satanic Panic theme going, there’s no better band to focus on than Judas Priest. They actually went on trial for supposed subliminal messaging on their albums causing murders in the 1980s. Insane stuff. We brush on it a bit. “Breaking the Law” is one of their grooviest music videos and it’s so […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Mark Of Archanon”

Caverns on Alpha? People frozen in said caverns? King Tut en vogue for Archanon? Football of Friendship? Yes, we go over these kinds of things in this episode. And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, not broadcast order. Streaming services have them in broadcast order, so be careful […]

Closing With A Song “Venus” by Bananarama with Troy Brownfield

Wow – It’s been over a month since we did a music video episode! Bananrama was an easy choice as it was featured in the documentary we were discussing on Monday. “Venus” is actually a cover song made even more famous than before with Bananarama. Troy is back to discuss the video. When studying and […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Rules of Luton”

Normally Jim and I are pretty eye to eye on these Space: 1999 episodes. With “The Rules of Luton” we have an episode that has somewhat split us. It’s an episode that is a take on Star Trek as well as Lost In Space. Where do you fall on this one? And our regular reminder, […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Taybor”

Space: 1999’s second season has been a change of pace from the first season, but this episode got really more wild and weird. We get a Brian Blessed like guest star whose attire looks like the regurgitation of 1980s female aimed cartoon programming. Strap in as Jim and I digest it all. And our regular […]

Out Now Commentary – Halloween (2018)

Sure, Halloween was yesterday, but why not one last good scare. The commentary for October on Out Now With Aaron and Abe was 2018’s Halloween that brought back Jamie Lee Curtis and John Carpenter. While I was part of the discussion on Out Now With Aaron & Abe about the film weekend of release, it […]

Tales From The Crypt “Collection Completed” with Michelle Suter-Shoemaker

What a fun week it’s been talking Tales From The Crypt with friends on the show! We close out with the appropriately titled “Collection Completed” featuring the return of Michelle Suter-Shoemaker. Michelle, who is the horror host of sorts for the anthology horror podcast we produce called Don’t Flinch. Feels right to have her here […]

Tales From The Crypt “Lover Come Hack To Me” with Pacing Pete

Some new blood joins on the show as I welcome the other half of the Halloween Never Dies podcast, Pacing Pete! You know his co host Sabina Graves quite well, now enjoy her wonderful counterpart. Pete gives us an update and some changes going on with their show as well as giving his history of […]

Tales From The Crypt “Only Sin Deep” with Danielle Sepulveres

Of course I’d have Danielle Sepulveres return for this. I always enjoy her perspective and insight on damn near anything. We get to discuss a truly interesting gem of the season that features Lea Thompson and the director of Pretty In Pink & Some Kind of Wonderful (her husband, Howard Deutch) teaming up for this […]

Tales From The Crypt “And All Through The House” with Katie Rife

Our week-long look at the remainder of the first season of Tales From The Crypt starts today! And joining for the second episode “And All Through The House” is the person who pitched me this idea earlier this year – The AV Club’s Katie Rife! Katie is a huge EC comics nut and a lover […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Journey To Where”

What an episode title, eh? This one finds the Alphans sort of close to home, yet so far away. There’s material here that feels like it could have been two separate episodes. We divulge in this unique journey (to where) that features Tony as a craft brewing enthusiast. And our regular reminder, we are going […]

Tales From The Crypt “The Man Who Was Death” with Jessica Alsman

For some October fun this year on the show, in addition to the Out Now with Aaron and Abe Horror Specials, we’ll be taking a look at the first season of HBO’s big time horror series Tales From The Crypt! The show featured big time actors, directors and writers coming together for some lovely anthology […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “All That Glisters”

Welp, we have hit a rocky, tough spot here on Space: 1999. “All That Glisters” doesn’t provide much glister, but Jim and I do our best to power through it. This episode was quite a swing and miss from Moonbase Alpha. And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, […]

Brought To You By Brandon & Jessica: Spooky 1980’s TV Ads

Ask and you shall receive! During Old Teen Show: The Heights, listeners made it clear they would like to see Jessica Alsman and I discussing more vintage commercials with regularity. So, here we are, giving it a shot. Since it’s October, we’re doing some Halloween themed ads from the 1980s. Listen along and find the […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “One Moment of Humanity”

The androids are humans! The humans are androids! All sorts of that craziness and also robot sexy times lie ahead in Jim and I’s latest trek to Space: 1999’s second season in “One Moment of Humanity”! And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, not broadcast order. Streaming services […]

Sorcerer (1977)

As we land on Sorcerer, we hit a film that is huge to me. This was one of those old films that was “new to me” in 2014. And boy, was I friggin impressed. This film really struck me and I’ve been sort of obsessed with it since. I cannot get enough of Sorcerer. And […]

Sound Of My Voice (2011) with Jamie Alvey

Sound of My Voice was a film that struck me, stuck with me and I continue to think about to this day. A little film that has big ideas and so much to say. These are the types of science fiction movies that impress me so much and the kind I dig and dig and […]

Bucktown (1975) with Audery Lane

Audery Lane is back! She’s always game and ready upon receiving the call to come and guest on the show. I’m lucky to have someone with such talent and great analysis that is excited to be on the show! For this episode, I’m bringing a completely forgotten flick to the table: BUCKTOWN. I didn’t know […]

Blood and Black Lace (1964) with Greg McGoon

Well, we’ve done it! We have completed 1 year of the show and now are moving into YEAR TWO! To mark this occasion, I’m flipping what I did during the first year on its head. For the past year, it has been guests bringing films that are unique favorites to the table and discussing them. […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Exiles”

Jim and I are officially back in the saddle. Moonbase Alpha comes across the plot of Star Trek Into Darkness and a pair of exiled beings that look like professional figure skaters. Plenty of fun, plenty of wacky and plenty of weird in this Space: 1999 adventure. And our regular reminder, we are going through […]

Out Now Commentary – Unforgiven (1992)

I may be taking a week off from the show proper, but HEY – this was fittingly perfect timing as there’s still a movie to talk about. Time for the Out Now Commentary. This month, since Clint Eastwood has a new film out (Cry Macho), and since we hadn’t done a film of his yet, […]

Closing With A Song “Pressure” by Billy Joel with Scott Mendelson

When it comes to artists that consistently went all in and produced provocative, memorable and big theatrical music videos, Billy Joel was one of the tops. Beyond having an incredible assembly of amazing, timeless songs, the man put together a great library of music videos as well. “Pressure” is also one of the bigger, stand […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Metamorph”

Jim Dietz & Space: 1999 are back! We begin the journey on the other side, or back half of the series to see it to complete. Space: 1999’s second season is notorious for a shift and lots of changes and it’s readily apparent right away. It felt good to get back in the saddle with […]

16 Blocks (2006) with Scott Mendelson

We’ve reached the 1 year milestone here on The Brandon Peters Show. Fitting enough, I’ve chosen to bring back the original guest, Forbes’ Scott Mendelson, to cap it all off! Has the show evolved or changed a lot since the first episode dropped? I’m sure it has, but you tell me. Scott and I are […]

Closing With A Song “Bye Bye Bye” by NSYNC with Jessica Alsman

I’m unleashing a beast. A huge music video. One of the biggest ever. NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” doesn’t even need to be rewatched to remember every detail of it. The video. The song. They were in constant rotation everywhere. I don’t care how cool or too good for this you think you were…you knew every […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “The Transformation”

Welp, this is it. We have reached the final episode ever of The Heights. .This one never aired in the United States as it was canceled and lifted from the schedule after the previous episode. Luckily, it aired in another country and somebody recorded it. Jessica and I bid farewell to the band and stay […]

The Heights “Talk To An Angel” SPECIAL EDITION with Jessica Alsman

As fate would have it, right after Jessica and I recorded our finale for Old Teen Show: The Heights, the first episode was uncovered. We were pretty enthused to not only record again so quickly, but to actually get to see where it all started out. We decided to make a week of it all. […]

Closing With A Song “Simple Kind Of Life” by No Doubt with Sabina Graves

I pay close attention to my guests; what they say, things they might drop in passing, social media…la la la. Back when we recorded the “Best Soundtrack Songs of the 90s” episode, I remember Sabina Graves saying that No Doubt was one of her favorites and specifically the Return of Saturn album. So here we […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “Things That Go Bump In The Night”

The penultimate episode of The Heights and this series! And a bummer because its the last one with regular commercials (More on that next week)! And what an episode because this one is loaded at almost an hour. Enjoy as Hope & Rita go head to head trying to find a job. Stay til the […]

Meet The Robinsons (2007) with Sabina Graves

One of my favorite parts about this show, and having my guests drive the movie choices, is the bounce from week to week. What other movie podcast goes from Friday the 13th to Disney family cartoon one week to the next? This one, that’s what the hell one does. Sabina Graves returns for her third […]

Out Now Commentary – Candyman (1992)

With a brand new take on Candyman upon us, it’s high time to revisit the original, stone cold classic. The Tony Todd starring film is one of my personal all-time favorites and argues to be one of the films that scared me more than any growing up. In addition to myself, this commentary features Aaron […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “The Wanderer”

Its a weird thing, but I love that The Heights incorporates a local town hustling swindler in Jimmy Bandisi. He’s back with a favor to ask of the band. There’s also some big time heat as Rita’s old flame returns. Jessica and I got it all covered here, as well as more commercials. Jessica Alsman […]

Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan with James Oster

During the World Film Project series, we passed by a Friday the 13th! No, I didn’t forget. I didn’t want to interrupt, quickly end or overshadow that run of episodes. And as Jimmy O and I always say…you don’t just have to wait until Friday the 13th to watch, talk about or record episodes of […]

Closing With A Song “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson with Sharareh Drury

Maybe it’s fandom. Maybe it’s a crush. Maybe it’s admiration. But, whatever, I enjoy the heck out of Ingrid Michaelson, both her music and as a person. I’ve seen her in concert a handful of times and will continue to seek her out and she’s a great entertainer. “The Way I Am” was her breakthrough […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “Independence Day”

This week sees different members of the Heights signing leases together as Rita & Hope find a place and Lenny moves in with old Stan. Some little dramas sift up in light of this. And yes, folks, there are commercials for Jessica and I to reflect on. Jessica Alsman from the The Bob & Tom […]

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014) with Sharareh Drury

Big caveat here on this week’s third and final entry into this first session of World Film Project. Yes, I’m very aware A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night was shot in California by UK born director Ana Lily Amirpour (who IS of Iranian descent). HOWEVER, please listen in and hear why I am vouching […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “What Does It Take”

Wow, for a short lived show, it’s exciting that we get to see this Dizzy and Jodi wedding already. We discuss the hijinks as well as marvel at “Who in the hell is this guy?” with Dizzy’s brother. Oh…and MORE commercials talk! Jessica Alsman from the The Bob & Tom Show is the Classmate for […]

Remote Control (1992) with Sharareh Drury

The “World Film Project” enters week 2. To refresh or introduce you to this concept, during these couple weeks on the show, we’ll be spotlighting a film that a country, not necessarily always given the spotlight for their cinematic output, considers one of their classics. Joining me for this adventure will be show regular Sharareh […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “Splendor In The Past”

It appears that the commercials aren’t going anywhere for a while so OH JOY to that! This is the promised Alex & Rita go to the bone zone episode and Jessica and I have PLENTY to say about that! Jessica Alsman from the The Bob & Tom Show is the Classmate for The Heights. The […]

The Girl With The Red Scarf (1977) with Sharareh Drury

This week begins a 3 week journey into what I’m calling the “World Film Project”. Over the next few weeks we’ll be spotlighting a film that a country, not necessarily always given the spotlight for their cinematic output, considers one of their classics. Joining for this adventure will be show regular Sharareh Drury. Her background […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “No Place Like Home”

Well, well, well. Commercials, we meet again. Jessica and I geek out over the wealth of marketing material encased in the recording of the episode we watched. We also have a healthy conversation on this one that has 3 separate storylines with different pairings of people. Also, prepare yourself for a very lengthy tangent I […]

The Crow (1994) with Danielle Sepulveres

It’s with great excitement that I welcome Danielle Sepulveres back on the show. I rather enjoyed our conversations from her first appearance a lot. Danielle has great stories to tell and experiences to share, and I’m here for all of it. This time around, we’re talking about the 90s grunge classic The Crow. The film […]

Out Now Commentary – Point Break (1991)

An interesting follow up to The Fast and the Furious this month as we now go to the film it knocked off: Point Break. The Kathryn BIgelow action classic turns 30 this month and we look back at how stylish and wonderful her direction is and go over the legacy of the film. In addition […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “Fear of Heights”

Our first notable guest star stops by The Heights this week and causes a stir with Rita. Hear Jessica endure as I geek out over Jill Shoelen who shakes things up on Episode 6! Jessica Alsman from the The Bob & Tom Show is the Classmate for The Heights. The Brandon Peters Show will return […]

LIVE! at PopCon 2021 with Jessica Alsman

PopCon returned in person this month and it was bigger and more exciting than ever! On the Saturday of the 3-Day event, Jessia Alsman and I recorded/performed the first ever LIVE edition of The Brandon Peters Show! For this episode of the show, we had a competition. Jessica and I would face off in a […]

Closing With A Song “I Need Love” by LL Cool J with Peter Paras

Keeping the 80s hip hop train rolling, we stop on a damn larger than life icon – LL COOL J! A much different guy than we know him now, we travel back to a rather big left turn for the whole genre with a “rap ballad” that met success across all sorts of borders and […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “Reunion”

Well, this could possibly be one of the funniest episodes of Old Teen or Old Space Show ever recorded. And sadly, the subject matter isn’t funny, but the way the show delivers it…well. Just take a listen. Our predictions last time were way off. But enjoy this banter (An Episode For Dad). Jessica Alsman from […]

Breakin’ (1984) with Peter Paras

You’ve heard him on the commentaries, now get to know Peter Paras a little better here on the show proper. Peter has recently shifted into a newer endeavor of producing video essays on YouTube. His first one was on the film Step Up 2: The Streets. Which is fitting because… He chose a stone cold […]

Closing With A Song “Holy Diver” by Dio with Troy Brownfield

Time to get metal once again! Fitting perfectly with Hawk The Slayer this week, Troy Brownfield and I discuss the sword and sorcery inspired “Holy Diver” from Dio. We also dive into fantasy and metal’s bond to one another and the career of the great Ronnie James Dio. Due to copyright and fair use laws […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “On The Nickel”

Jessica and I have been taking in The Heights via a streaming platform that everyone uses. And this particular episode happened to have a full recording with commercials intact. So not only do you get to hear us discuss the show, but we totally lose it with our excitement over these vintage marketing gems from […]

Hawk The Slayer (1980) with Troy Brownfield

Troy Brownfield becomes the first guest to return for a third time However, he’s somehow managed to not be on a regular episode proper yet. He was a part of the first roundtable and then appeared during the Holiday Gift Guide series. So now, he’s checking that off his list. He’s brought 80s sword and […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “Evil Ways”

This is the episode where if you had suspicions about JT being a complete dick; they are WELL CONFIRMED. We find ourselves in the midst of some juicy young drama in the 3rd episode of the The Heights! And another new song called “Natalie” is…I guess…pretty? Jessica Alsman from the The Bob & Tom Show […]

Out Now Commentary – The Fast & The Furious (2001)

With the Hannibal Lecter commentaries completed, we now set our sights to the 20th anniversary of The Fast & The Furious! With F9 arriving in theaters this week, its time to look back at how far this series has come from its original Point Break with underground street racing has come. In addition to myself, […]

The Rider (2017) with Chelsea Christer

In my journeys on this podcast, I’ve been sharing time with friends old and new and meeting fresh faces along the way. Chelsea Christer was a special one as I found myself in one of my most inspired week’s creatively in both researching, interviewing, recording and doing the promo video “The Decline of Podcast Civilization”. […]

How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days (2003) with Greg McGoon

Nope, not the episode I advertised at the end of last week. My apologies. The World Film Project WILL indeed be happening, but we’ve had a little delay. Thanks for your understanding and interest in that. INSTEAD – Greg McGoon returns and we are tackling a film we both were excited to talk about when […]

Old Teen Show: The Heights “Talk To An Angel”

Well, this is a left turn, yes? No space or time travel here. Just rock and angst. Welcome aboard an obscure show in the shadow of Beverly Hills 90210 in the 1990s. The grunge infused The Heights couldn’t pull off the magic that Melrose Place did. But it did manage a #1 hit song. Unfortunately, […]

The Haunting (1963) with James Oster

Thank you so much for coming back after I took a week off! Did you miss me? I missed you. Let’s get back to business shall we? James Oster aka “Jimmy O” returns to the show. This is the first time I’ve ever had him on one of my programs to talk about something that […]

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap “Play It Again, Seymour”

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap "Play it Again Seymour"

After a week off, Old Space Show: Quantum Leap is back to complete its first season! In the finale, Tony & I discuss the Bogart-themed mystery. We also give a reflection on the series as a whole. Stay to the end for a tease of the left field direction I’m about to embark on next! […]

Breaking Away (1979) with Carl Doninger

Carl Doninger is the guy behind one of my favorite events of the summer, the year, the city I live in: POPCORN! Yes, you’ve heard much about this convention on the show throughout its existence. And well, that’s because it’s important to me and so many others. You’ll get to learn all about this year’s […]

Closing With A Song “Slippin'” by DMX with Sharai Bohannon

Closing with a Song Slippin Sharai Bohannon

Since I schedule, plan far ahead and also try and find appropriate material that my guests are familiar or comfortable with talking about when it comes to these music video episodes, I haven’t been able to touch on the late, great DMX since his passing. In my late teens, early 20s, I was quite a […]

Out Now Commentary – Hannibal Rising (2007)

Out Now Commentary Hannibal Rising

The monthly commentary series for Out Now with Aaron & Abe concludes its journey through the cinematic adaptations of the Thomas Harris novels surrounding Hannibal Lecter. We go out on a high, with the film everyone has been eagerly awaiting us to cover! This is the best and most favoritest one of them all, yes? […]

The Meteor Man (2003) with Sharai Bohannon

The Meteor Man (2003) with Sharai Bohannon

I found my guest, Sharai Bohannon, very recently through a toxic scenario she exposed over the Twitter universe. While that was the reason I found her to connect, she’s a person who has SO MUCH to offer. Even beyond her very fun horror podcast, A Nightmare On Fierce Street. Sharai has lots of talents and […]

Closing With A Song “Sweet Surrender” by Sarah McLachlan with Scott Mendelson

Sweet surrender with Scott Mendelson

Here’s a little fun fact, returning guest Scott Mendelson is a big Sarah McLachlan fan! I specifically picked this week’s music video out with him in mind. And it was a more difficult task as Sarah McLachlan doesn’t quite sink her teeth into deep music videos too much. “Sweet Surrender” is easily her most interesting […]

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap “The Camikazi Kid”

Old Space Show - Quantum Leap: The Camikazi Kid

The show follows up last week with another pretty deep topical episode that deals with spousal abuse. Look out also for a pre-90210 Jason Priestly, Robert Costanzo and Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood’s Kevin Spirtas! Tony Schaab from the Sciencefiction.com is the Companion for Quantum Leap. The Brandon Peters Show will return […]

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) with Scott Mendelson

Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle Of Life with Scott Mendelson

My original guest for the show, Forbes writer Scott Mendelson returns for the first time proper (AKA not a commentary track). And while not a “favorite” film per se, the second Angelina Tomb Raider adventure has had a significant resonance in his lingo if you’re a follower of his box office reporting. Scott coined the […]

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap “The Color Of Truth”

We have reached one of the pinnacle episodes of the show in “The Color of Truth”. This is certainly Quantum Leap displaying how powerful, inspired and flat out great television it could be. Tony and I have a fantastic conversation revolving around this episode’s topic of civil rights and racial injustices. Tony Schaab from the […]

Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999) with Stephanie Crawford

The great Stephanie Crawford returns! Her first time on the show proper. If you remember, she was on the Holiday Gift Guide episode before. And don’t worry, we know you loved us discussing Blu-rays. I have a follow up to last week’s Warner Archive discussion, where we pore over a new piece of information regarding […]

Closing With A Song “Shame” by Stabbing Westward with Reyna Cervantes

And we’ve gotten to a very “one for me” music video. I was pretty big on what is now an obscure 90s industrial band called Stabbing Westward. They had a sound that really lent it to sounding like the perfect music for movie trailers. Some of theirs would be. “Shame” is a really awesome music […]

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap “Double Identity”

Tony and Brandon try best not to sleep with the fishes, see? Quantum Leap cribs from one of cinema’s greatest subgenres – the gangster film! Enjoy our analysis of the episode “Double Identity”. Tony Schaab from the Sciencefiction.com is the Companion for Quantum Leap. The Brandon Peters Show will return Friday (4/30) to close with […]

Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls (1970) with Reyna Cervantes

Did you know that film critic icon Robert Ebert once wrote a film? And that it’s one of the most highly regarded, wild and crazy, Russ Meyer cult films? Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is his satirical masterpiece he provided to the world of film. And it is quite a crazy midnight movie kind […]

Closing With A Song “Violet” by Hole with David Kronmiller

Hole "Violet"

Time to talk some grunge! Courtney Love was a big figurehead of the female rock scene in the 1990s. A controversial one at that and had a legendary partnership with that of Kurt Cobain. “Violet” was the song that personally was my gateway into being a fan of her band Hole. David Kronmiller joins again […]

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap “How The Tess Was Won”

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap "How the Tess Was Won"

Sam takes to the farms as he finds himself in the role of veterinarian caught in the midst of a cowboy challenge for the love of the landowner’s inheritance. This episode introduces some tropes for the series and takes a few interesting turns, including a bit of a surprise ending. Tony Schaab from the Sciencefiction.com […]

Out Now Commentary – Red Dragon (2002)

Out Now Commentary: Red Dragon

The monthly commentary series for Out Now with Aaron & Abe continues its journey through the cinematic adaptations of the Thomas Harris novels surrounding Hannibal Lecter. We now get to the same story we started with in a polished new form in that of Red Dragon. How does the Brett Ratner film hold itself to […]

Moxie (2021) with David Kronmiller

Moxie (2021)

David Kronmiller is a longtime friend of mine from those fabled days you’ve heard on this show about DVD and Blu-ray quality control. David it was actually one of the people in that field the longest when I’d met him and a person I’d spent many of late evenings testing and reporting on discs with. […]

Closing With A Song “Holding Out For A Hero” by Bonnie Tyler

Closing with a Song: Bonnie Tyler "Holding Out for a Hero"

Aw, not “Total Eclipse of the Heart”, Brandon? We’ll get there, folks. Don’t work, this Bonnie Tyler video is equally weird, baffling and not what you’d expect when hearing the song or seeing how its been incorporated into movies. It has nothing to do with footloose and I’m not sure the old west comes to […]

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap “The Right Hand Of God”

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap "Right Hand of God"

“Oh boy” and “Yo Adrian” become synonymous when Sam Beckett finds himself in a boxing scenario. Early on it becomes apparent that the show is willing to reflect popular films in coming up with its plots. Tony and I receive our first taste of this type of Leap in “The Right Hand Of God”, which […]

The Losers (2010) with KJ

The Losers with KJ

It’s been just a small bit of an adventure for KJ and I to line up our schedules to make this episode finally come to light. As early as last year, I’d reached out for her to come on. Now we are here and you can enjoy her discussing all the nifty stuff she does […]

Closing With A Song: “Intergalactic” by Beastie Boys

Closing with a Song: Intergalactic from Beastie Boys

Cleansing my palate after countrying it up for a week, we spin right over to Beastie Boys. And what a perfect video to pair with doing a Godzilla movie on Monday than the Kaiju inspired “Intergalactic”. This video rules and we are here for every second of it. Aaron Neuwirth returns and is a huge […]

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap “Star-Crossed”

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap "Star Crossed"

The second episode of Quantum Leap has some interesting turns and agendas regarding the series challenges and rules. And it also guest stars my favorite Lois Lane, Teri Hatcher. The show continues to impress and we are here to chat it all up. Tony Schaab from the Sciencefiction.com is the Companion for Quantum Leap. The […]

Shin Godzilla (2016) with Aaron Neuwirth

Shin Godzilla 2016

Enjoy Godzilla Vs Kong over the last week? I did! I’m following that movie up with a discussion on the 2016 Toho refresh, Shin Godzilla. Not only is it a fresh take on the series that has 30+ entries, it’s also one of the best Godzilla films ever made. Perhaps the best since the original. […]

Closing With A Song: “The Thunder Rolls” by Garth Brooks

Closing with a Song Garth Brooks Thunder Rolls

Yup, I’ve gone country! No need to discriminate. All genres made music videos good and bad. Garth Brooks was one of the biggest artists of the 90s and this might be his most significant contribution to the art form. I’d been holding on to this one until the right guest came around, and Mike Vanderbilt […]

Old Space Show: Quantum Leap “Genesis”

Old Space Show Quantum Leap: Genesis

We begin again on Old Space Show. Quantum Leap is one of my all time favorite shows in the history of television. A historical anthology drama with a science fiction twist was one of the most endearing and impressive shows. The first season is short and still finding its way and is quite interesting upon […]

Bobbie Jo And The Outlaw (1976) with Mike Vanderbilt

Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw with Mike Vanderbilt

Mike Vanderbilt is back! After meeting on the Jason Goes To Hell Episode last year, I knew I’d be bringing him back regularly. I really enjoy discussing films, film history and research and we are on a pretty strong wavelength in that regard. Plus, his knowledge and bravado impresses me and I hope you as […]

Closing With A Song: “Love Is A Battlefield” by Pat Benatar

Closing with a Song: Pat Benetar "Love on the Battlefield"

This felt like a good one to stick with Buffy. Pat Benatar herself was a badass and she also delivered a lot of pretty cool music videos. The pinnacle of them would be “Love Is A Battlefield”, easily. This one tells a story and has a bit of goofiness to it as well. Oh, and […]

Old Space Show: Doctor Who “Revelation Of The Daleks”

Old Space Show: Dr Who: Revelation of the Daleks

I feel like this series just started, but here we are at the finale of Doctor Who: The Colin Baker Era, Year One. Revelation of the Daleks is one of Colin’s most popular stories and it’s not hard to see why. A bit more dark, violent and adult as well as one of the best […]

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1992) with Jennifer Wreyford

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Jennifer Wreyford and I met in a former place of employment and upon first interaction with her, I was immediately captivated and taken with her skill as a speaker, a leader and someone who relatively has a great sense of communication with people. Its no surprise that she’s found a calling in an industry very […]

Closing With A Song: “Shot In The Dark” by Ozzy Osbourne

Closing with a Song: Ozzy Osbourne "A Shot in the Dark"

We haven’t really done much in the way of metal on the music video portion. So let’s go back and do some Ozzy Osbourne. “Shot In The Dark” comes from an album he’d rather soon forget, was that due to some legal issues regarding this song or just not enjoying it? We go over that […]

Old Space Show: Doctor Who “Timelash”

Old Space Show: Dr Who: Timelash

Welp, we had to get here at some point. Timelash is largely considered, voted and judged as being one of the all time worst stories in the entire history of Doctor Who. And…well…we can’t argue much with that. But we sure can take a look at what went wrong, some interesting tid bits it does […]

The Wraith (1986) with Audery Lane

The Wraith with Audery Lane

Audery Lane is welcomed back to the show. We have a pretty terrific interview going over the ins, outs, challenges and successes of running film festivals. There are also some details regarding the upcoming PopCon International Film Festival this July that you won’t want to miss. She’s brought the cult classic 1986 film The Wraith […]

Closing With A Song: “Wannabe” by Spice Girls

The Spice Girls "Wannabe"

Spice Girls are finally here. Don’t say I don’t listen to my listeners. “Wannabe” has been one of my most requested music videos to do in the early life of this show. And I kind of waited until the perfect storm to unleash this classic. Jessica Alsman was ripe for Spice Mania growing up and […]

Old Space Show: Doctor Who “The Two Doctors”

Old Space Show: The Two Doctors

From a mult-evil Time Lord story to a multi-Doctor story, The Two Doctors is LOADED. We have multiple Doctors, multiple companions, Sontarans, time travel science, cannibals, Jacqueline Pearce and so much more. It’s a 3-part story as well, shot on location in Spain. So much to talk about, this one runs longer than usual. And […]

Out Now Commentary – Hannibal (2001)

Out Now Commentary: Hannibal 2001

The monthly commentary series for Out Now with Aaron & Abe continues its journey through the cinematic adaptations of the Thomas Harris novels surrounding Hannibal Lecter. Hannibal is this month’s subject. A mega box office success, but rather derided film in its legacy. Perhaps it deserves another look? In addition to myself, this commentary features […]

A League Of Their Own with Jessica Alsman

A League of Their Own with Jessica Alsman

Jessica Alsman is back! Though you hear her every week on the show, this is her 2nd time as a full fledged guest. She’s also the only guest so far to have talked about a current “new release” film on the show. But now, we delve into one of her favorites and one important to […]

Closing With A Song: “Two Princes” by Spin Doctors

When “Two Princes” arrived, the Spin Doctors were huge. I was stunned in my research to see the album it was on went 5 times platinum. Insane to think, considering they fell off the map quickly after and became kind of a joke to people for a while after. Also, Two Princes = Two Videos. […]

Old Space Show: Doctor Who “The Mark Of The Rani”

Old Space Show: Dr Who: Mark of the Rani

This week we are introduced to another diabolical time lord, The Rani! A character meant to be the next big thing, but unfortunately wasn’t used as much as expected. This marks Colin Baker’s Sixth Doctor’s first historical and sees his first crossing of paths with The Master. Pip and Jane Baker make their debut as […]

Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead (1991) with Greg McGoon

Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead

Greg McGoon is a wonderful children’s author and all around great personality. He has a pretty extensive background from being candy royalty to theater and a photography which led him to his writing. Greg is also just an all around terrific and passionate person to be able to share time with. This episode’s film discussion […]

Closing With A Song: “Angel of Mine” by Monica

Closing with a Song: Monica "Angel of Mine"

Monica had a huge record with her sophomore album “The Boy Is Mine” which led off on a big duet with her rival Brandy. The second single was, oddly as a I found out, a cover of “Angel of Mine”. It wasn’t a duet, but the video featured the up and coming singer/MTV VJ Tyrese […]

Old Space Show: Doctor Who “Vengeance On Varos”

Old Space Show: Dr Who Vengeance on Varos-featured

This week, we meet the aquatic, sluggish nemesis of the Sixth Doctor, SIL. Vengeance on Varos is a pretty grim tale, but one that has had a bit of re-appraisal in the past decade. Going into this series, it marks Brandon’s personal favorite serial featuring Colin Baker as The Doctor. Rachel Frend from the The […]

Absentia (2011) with Jamie Alvey

Absentia (2011)

Jamie Alvey is the first guest on the show that I found through another guest on the show. Back in October, when I recorded with Molly Henery she mentioned to me that she would be doing a live script read for something called the Devil’s Kettle Drama Club (Nice nod to Jennifer’s Body). So I […]

Closing With A Song: “Raspberry Beret” by Prince and the Revolution

Closing with a Song: Raspberry Beret by Prince and the Revolution

Time to finally get to some Prince here on the music video series. I decided to go with something somewhat whacky combined with just a damn fine song. “Raspberry Beret” was the first thing we received from him after “Purple Rain”. The video is very 1980s loud as well fun and eclectic. Returning to analyze […]

Old Space Show: Doctor Who “Attack Of The Cybermen”

Old Space Show: Dr Who: Attack of the Cybermen

From week 1 to week 2 of The Colin Baker Era, Year One, we jump seasons as we now begin Season 22. Doctor Who changed its format to 2-part 45 minute serials instead of the traditional 4-part 24 minute structure. Showrunner John Nathan Turner also opted for a darker tone as well. “Attack of the […]

Out Now Commentary – The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)

Out Now Commentary Silence of the Lambs

The monthly commentary series for Out Now with Aaron & Abe continues its journey through the cinematic adaptations of the Thomas Harris novels surrounding Hannibal Lecter. The Silence of the Lambs is this month’s subject, as we cover the well decorated Oscar winner. In addition to myself, this commentary features Aaron Neuwirth (Out Now host, […]

Lady Snowblood with Katie Rife

Lady Snowblood with Katie Rife

I’ve been meaning to have Katie Rife from The A.V. Club onto the show since it started, but alas here we are, half a year into this and BAM – she has arrived. And with an absolutely delicious pick of a movie to boot. Though, I had no doubt in her picking something to bring […]

Closing With A Song: “Regulate” by Warren G & Nate Dogg

Closing with a Song: "Regulate" Warren G & Nate Dogg

For this soundtrack week, why not one of the heaviest rotation videos from MTV, Warren G & Nate Dogg’s “Regulate”. It’s a song and video firmly stored in your brain forever. From the Above The Rim soundtrack, we were all tweaking into a whole new era. Step to this, I dare ya! Joining me for […]

Old Space Show: Doctor Who “The Twin Dilemma”

Old Space Show: Doctor Who: The Twin Dilemma

Welcome to a brand new adventure on Old Space Show! Who begins a Doctor Who podcast with “The Twin Dilemma”? Apparently, that’s me! Colin Baker’s debut as the sixth iteration of The Doctor is notorious for its reputation being one of the worst stories in the show’s history. Continually voted as #1 in the wrong […]

Closing With A Song: “Ready Or Not” by The Fugees

Closing with a Song: Ready or Not by the Fugees

It feels as if right when The Fugees took off, they were no more. As a matter of fact that’s exactly how it played out. They all went solo. “Killing Me Softly” was a phenomenon, but the next music video was extremely influential on the hip hop music video world. “Ready or Not” had a […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Testament of Arkadia”

Old Space Show: Space1999: The Testament of Arkadia

This is it! The final episode of Season 1 of Space:1999. Old Space Show series 1 is in the books! We have a deluxe sized episode for you as we not only cover the episode, but look back and reflect on season 1 as well as give our TOP 5 episodes. Be sure to stay […]

Persepolis with Sharareh Drury

Persepolis with Sharareh Drury

Sharareh Drury is a person you should be expecting to make regular house calls on The Brandon Peters Show. I’ve long appreciated and admired her work and terrific perspective on the world of film, television and media in general. When planning this podcast out in its early stages, she’s someone who I intended to be […]

Closing With A Song: “Like A Virgin” by Madonna

Closing with a Song: Madonna Like A Virgin

This is probably the biggest video by the biggest artist that’s been tackled here on The Brandon Peters Show. Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” is considered one of the greatest pop songs ever made and turned her and it into such an icon. I don’t think I really need to spill out details about it. Danielle […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Dragon’s Domain”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: Dragon's Domain

Only 1 more episode of Space: 1999’s first season remains. Here in this penultimate journey we have an odd, tentacled monster terrorizing a haunted ship graveyard. We are also introduced to a character we were supposed to have known this whole time and we get to see EARTH for the first time. And our regular […]

Working Girl with Danielle Sepulveres

Working Girl

Danielle Sepulveres isn’t just a great follow on Twitter, she’s a very talented person who has her hand in many different crafts. Her writing for various fields of relationships, health and pop culture is top notch. She’s also been quite involved with HPV and cervical cancer activism. Her show, The Adult Spelling Bee is a […]

Closing With A Song: “Testify” by Rage Against The Machine

Closing with a Song: Rage Against the Machine "Testify"

I’m not sure there’s been a more perfect pairing on a Friday Music Video episode than this one. It’s a very political week, we talked a political film, my guest is a political filmmaker…yeah, we are gonna do Rage Against The Machine. Returning is the director of Storm Chaser, Gretl Claggett. And wow, did this […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Mission of the Darians”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: Mission of the Darians

I celebrate my birthday with an Old Space Show! We are nearing the end of Space: 1999’s first season and they’re pulling out the big guns as Joan Collins guest stars in “Mission of the Darians”. Who are the Darians? What is their Mission? Who is eating who? Let’s talk about it! And our regular […]

Out Now Commentary – Manhunter (1986)

Out Now Manhunter 1986 Commentary

Over on Out Now, the monthly commentary series will be doing a film by film look at the Hannibal Lector movies to kick off the year. We kick off January with Michael Mann’s highly stylistic adaptation of Thomas Harris’ novel Red Dragon, Manhunter from 1986! In addition to myself, this commentary features Aaron Neuwirth (Out […]

The Great Dictator with Gretl Claggett

The Great Dictator with Gretl Claggett

Welcome to the encore performance of this episode! My laptop had taken on dump on me and lost the original one. But alas, it was recorded again and I think even more rich than before. Thanks to the world being crazy, the conversations political lean seemed to have much more meat on it and became […]

Closing With A Song: “Block Rockin’ Beats” by The Chemical Brothers

The Chemical Brothers Block Rockin' Beats

I chose “Block Rockin’ Beats” by The Chemical Brothers as I wanted something that sort of fit in with the vibe of music my guest creates. The album it came from was the first techno album I ever bought and the music of The Chemical Brothers is what kind of made me think “Okay, I […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Infernal Machine”

The Old Space Show: Space 1999 The Infernal Machine

Leo McKern of The Prisoner fame guests on this one. Lots of pretty sets. And new crewmember Winters hops on board in “The Infernal Machine”! And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, not broadcast order. Streaming services have them in broadcast order, so be careful if you’re going […]

Wild at Heart with Nate Utesch

Wild at Heart with Nate Utesch

Technologically speaking, I am back with an all new laptop to bring you quality episodes of this silly show. And to be quite honest, aside from me not really having the capacity to do a polished edit, I enjoyed last week’s content with Russell McGee quite a bit. This week, my longtime friend Nate Utesch […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Space Brain”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: Space Brain

Moonbase Alpha kicks off 2021 on Old Space Show with a good or intergalactic foam party! Space: 1999 features yet another possessed crew member wandering around doing alien tidings, but this time brings both the fun and a super recognizable face. Jim and I begin the final run of season 1 with “Space Brain”. And […]

Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. with Russell McGee

Well, this was not the episode I promised or expected to be leading the charge into 2021…but here we are! Please note that this episode is being released with the raw recorded audio and has not been edited as you’re accustomed to. Russell McGee is a friendship I’ve fortunate to have forged years ago. I […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Troubled Spirit”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: Troubled Spirit

The star of none other than Escape From The Bronx shows up here as a planet whisperer of sorts and the ship is haunted by a pizza faced ghost. This is a truly wild ride on alpha, complete with sitar solo accompaniment. Strap in and get ready for some crazy twists and turns. And our […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Last Enemy”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: The Last Enemy

This episode sees the crew of Moonbase Alpha caught in a solar system conflict between a planet of some space vixens from outer space and one led by Mavic Chen himself, Kevin Stoney. This episode features plenty to talk about and we faun over some nifty 1970s science fiction aesthetic. And our regular reminder, we […]

Closing with a Song “Last Christmas” by Wham

Closing with a Song - "Last Christmas" by Wham

There was no way my new show’s first trip around the holidays wasn’t going to touch on Wham!’s “Last Christmas”. Quite possibly the most known Christmas song addition of the 1980s, it comes with a very 80s video companion. Returning is Jen Edds of The Brassy Broadcast Company. And oh my word, did we have […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “War Games”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: War Games

“War Games” was a thrilling episode for Space: 1999. You’ll be able to notice our excitement right off the bat. This one see some highs for the series and quite possibly enters the conversation for best episode. And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production order, not broadcast order. Streaming […]

Out Now Commentary – The Force Awakens

Out Now Commentary - The Force Awakens

While there’s not a new Star Wars film this December, we still have The Mandalorian. So why not continue our annual Star Wars commentaries for Out Now? Glad you agree! We are now at Disney’s first theatrical output, 2015’s The Force Awakens! In addition to myself, this commentary features Aaron Neuwirth (Out Now host, We […]

The Star Wars Holiday Special with Jen Edds

Star Wars Holiday Special

Jen Edds is a pal of mine I’ve met through…you guessed it – PODCASTING! Jen is one of the most impressive hosts, producers and business owners locally with her company The Brassy Broadcasting Company. She’s won numerous accolades and awards for her stellar work in the medium. And not to be overlooked, Jen is a […]

Closing With A Song: “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany

Closing with a Song - I Think We're Alone Now - Tiffany

I absolutely adore Tiffany and this was the one that launched her to a rather short brush in mega stardom. This video is one of the most 80s of 80s things you’re ever going to see. Its legacy has long lasted too, even fully inspiring the Robin Sparkles material for How I Met Your Mother […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “End of Eternity”

Old Space Show: Space: 1999: End of Eternity

Another being, monster, possessed thing is loose on the ship…again! Look out med bay, they are likely coming for you!

Out of Sight with Maxwell Haddad

Out of Sight with Maxwell Haddad

Maxwell Haddad and I met through podcasting on Out Now with Aaron and Abe. When it comes to cinema and television, he has a beautiful mind regarding his criticism. Many of the best conversations regarding film and television I’ve had in my life have been with Maxwell. My first podcast, the IchaPod CraneCast, was co-hosted […]

Closing With A Song: “I Don’t Want To Wait” by Paula Cole

Closing with a Song "I Don't Want to Wait" - Paula Cole

No, this has nothing to do with Secondhand Lions. It has everything to do with being random and having fun. Paula Cole’s hit “I Don’t Want To Wait” of course became immortalized when it became the opening title jingle for Dawson’s Creek in the 1990s. And yes, we talk about that plenty. Molly Farnsley, creator […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “The Full Circle”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: The Full Circle

Jim and I head into the mist and discover – CAVEMEN! This crazy and pretty well scaled episode of Space: 1999 (“The Full Circle”) has us thrilled, giggling and scratching our heads all at the same time. Stun or Kill? That’s the question! And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the […]

4K BLUsday 12/8/2020

4k BLUsday 12-08-2020

Things are obviously winding down a little bit in terms of EXCITING NEW RELEASES ALL THE TIME! as we head into winter and spring. That doesn’t stop us from having some exciting things happening, however! And don’t forget, after listening to go over the YouTube page for the visual representation of the podcast as well […]

Secondhand Lions with Molly Farnsley

Secondhand Lions

Molly Farnsley is another person from PopCon Fort Wayne in 2018 that took the podcast stage that never recorded. She was actually the first person I inquired about coming up to guest on it. Her artwork at her booth easily caught my attention and she seemed a delightful person when conversing for a few moments […]

Closing With A Song: “Adam’s Song” by Blink-182

Closing with a Song: Adam's Song - Blink 182

There was no way getting around doing Blink-182’s “Adam’s Song” this week. Every bit and piece of it was leading to this. Mark Hoppus was in Bleeding Audio. Female director. The Decline of Western Civilization was about punk music. My only hesitation is the song being kind of a bummer, but in turn that led […]

Out Now Commentary – Unstoppable (2010)

Out Now: Unstoppable

Time again for the Out Now Commentary track. This one (for November) is for Tony Scott’s final film Unstoppable. Celebrating its 10th birthday this year and since there’s no Top Gun coming, we decided to cover one of Scott’s films as we never have before. In addition to myself, this commentary features Aaron Neuwirth (Out […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Death’s Other Dominion”

Space 1999: Death's Other Dominion

We follow up the big Turkey Day Marathon with a BIG episode that has a BIG guest star in that of thespian legend BRIAN BLESSED (C’mon you know you said it in your head to the back row)! Enjoy this lengthy discussion on what we found to be one of the strongest episodes of Space: […]

4K BLUsday 12-1-2020

4K BLUsday 12-01-2020

With the amount of workload, holidays, blah blah blah, this episode is pretty much loose and off the cuff. My apologies for those of you who like more pro-sounding produced stuff, but it’s better than nothing. This week we have some new slates from Vinegar Syndrome, Arrow, Eureka and Imprint and plenty more to talk. […]

The Decline of Western Civilization with Chelsea Christer

The Decline of Western Civilization

A couple weeks before launching this show, as I was knee deep in preparations, recording, scheduling and a bunch of madness, I somehow found time to squeeze in time to review an indie rock documentary called Bleeding Audio. The story of the band The Matches has wound up becoming one of my favorite films in […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Collision Course”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: Collision Course

We close down the Old Space Show Turkey Day Marathon with “Collision Course”. This one offers more of that weird 2001-inspired type story many of these end up having. A fun aside, while some inserts have been placed, this was actually the 5th episode we recorded for this series back in September. And our regular […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Voyager’s Return”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: Voyager's Return

Our Old Space Show Turkey Day Marathon CONTINUES! A satellite for Earth is in the deep reaches of space preaching peace and offering destruction.

Old Space Show: Space 1999: The Last Sunset

The Old Space Show Turkey Day Marathon CONTINUES! The crew of Moonbase Alpha witnesses their first sunrise and bit of rain in ages as they start having a beach party and Paul discovers shrooms.

Holiday Gift Guide – Figures, Comics & Books with Troy Brownfield

Holiday Gift Guide: Figures, Comics & Books

This week, we shift our gears on the show for an idea I had around launch. As an avid Black Friday Blu-ray shopping enthusiast and someone who is a bit specific in my interests when it comes to buying gifts for during the holiday season, I thought it would be cool to have some episodes […]

Closing With A Song: “Ironic” by Alanis Morissette

Ironic by Alanis Morissette

There were few (If any) bigger albums in the 1990s than Alanis Morissette’s juggernaut, Jagged Little Pill. Her single “Ironic” was also one of the most decorated and talked about videos from the album, having its share of Grammy appreciation and the all too sought after VMA accolades. “Ironic” found itself with heavy play and […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Force of Life”

Old Space Show: Space 1999: Force of Life

Another big guest star boards Moonbase Alpha…or more rather was already there. Ian McShane is possessed by some space beam and winds up becoming some sort of energy vampire in search of the ship’s nuke collection. Yes, that’s what this episode entails! And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production […]

Plenty to announce this week, including Criterion’s February slate, Kino picking up some old Twilight Time classics and Arrow giving a 4K finger to another studio! Lots of fun, lots of gearing up for the big holiday season. This will be the last regular 4K BLUsday installment for 2 weeks, as I have something special […]

The Day Of The Jackal with Pres Maxson

The Day of the Jackal with Pres Maxson

I met Pres Maxson at PopCon Fort Wayne back in late December of 2018. Running a live podcast stage with nary a podcast to sign up for, I had to fill it with content and went looking around the convention for talent interested in discussing their work on stage.Pres was more than obliging. Needless to […]

Jason Goes To Hell (Friday the 13th Bonus)

Friday the 13th Bonus: Jason Goes to Hell

Did you think Friday the 13th would land and I WOULDN’T do an episode? James Oster (Joblo.com, Sounds Scary) pick up where Cult Cinema Cavalcade left off and continue the march through the Friday the 13th franchise. This time around comes the controversial Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday. The one where people complain […]

Closing With A Song: “Heartbeat” by Don Johnson

Closing with a Song: "Heartbeat" by Don Johnson

No, the song has nothing to do with The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. But, I wasn’t choosing any other video for my guest. Did you know during his Miami Vice years, Don Johnson recorded an album? Did you also know he made on of the most overdone, ridiculous music videos for it? If […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Guardian of Piri”

Everybody is lured into a false sense of happiness in the latest adventure with Moonbase Alpha. And Jon Koenig is going to put an end to it! This episode also gives us a guest that bumps to regular status for Series 2. And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: 1999 in the production […]

4K BLUsday 11-10-2020

Right up to recording this episode, big announcements were coming in. And leave it to Germany to drop some really cool 4K UHD titles “coming soon”. Many full slates are released and Severin slowly reveals to us their secret Black Friday titles. All that and more this week. And don’t forget, after listening to go […]

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly with John Rocha

The Good the Bad and the Ugly with John Rocha

John Rocha is one of the most treasured friendships I’ve made in this journey called life. We both worked in DVD Quality Control as I’d mentioned many times already going through the life of this show. “Johnny” as I’d call him, was the esteemed actor of the group, being the one that had the most […]

Closing With A Song: “Whoomp! (There It Is)” by Tag Team

Whoomp There it Is by Tag Team

Taking the nation by storm in 1993 was “Whoomp! (There It Is)”. Still an arena staple for sports, Tag Team was truly one of the most One Hit Wonder of One Hit Wonders. Their only other notable song was a remix of “Whoomp!” for Addams Family Values as a replacement for a Michael Jackson song […]

Out Now Commentary: Psycho (1960)

I’m very excited to be bringing the Out Now With Aaron & Abe monthly film commentary series to The Brandon Peters Show. The commentaries will be released on both programs in the ongoing regular fashion. To close the October Horror Specials, we did a commentary for Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece, Psycho. The film turned 60 years […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Missing Link”

First we had Christopher Lee and now two episodes later we get Peter Cushing. Space:1999 is getting the finest picks of the litter sitting in the Hammer Horror studio lobby waiting for work. They paint him gold and dress him like Strawberry Shortcake’s nemesis and we are here for ALL OF IT! And our regular […]

4K BLUsday 11-03-2020

Compared to the past few, this seems a rather tame week. No real huge announcements and the new releases are very regular-ish. Nonetheless, Kino has plenty to talk about and there are some more interesting cult films coming to the tale from the likes of Mondo Macabro and others. This is a more brief episode, […]

Addams Family Values with Sabina Graves

It’s hard to talk about Sabina Graves and not use the word “awesome”. A couple of years ago, she guested on one of the Out Now October Horror Specials to partake in our topic of women directors in horror. Sabina was a total joy to listen to and bounce off of in discussion. When I […]

Closing With A Song: “Living Dead Girl” by Rob Zombie

Closing with a Song: Rob Zombie - Living Dead Girl

Halloween is upon us and what better music to celebrate with than Rob Zombie? I’ve long been a fan of his and no matter what, this time of year, Hellbilly Deluxe gets a spin in my car. For this week’s music video, I picked what is probably artistically my favorite of his in the Dr. […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Another Time, Another Place”

Old Spcae Show: Space 1999 - Another Time Another Place

While the show takes sets itself in another time, another place, they actually episode called “Another Time, Another Place”. Fitting for a soap opera show name as it is an episode title here, this one flirts with a strong sci-fi concept that while interesting doesn’t fully come together. Nonetheless, plenty of fun for Jim and […]

4K BLUsday 10/27/2020

4K BLUSDay 10-27-2020

We’ve got a load of new announcements this week, thanks to many studios unveiling their January slates. Many exciting retread discs coming through as well. The next few weeks sees a bit of a transition from loaded months into a few slower ones, but there’s always still plenty of interesting releases and announcements to discuss. […]

The Fog with Justin Beahm

One of the most important voices in both the horror realm and home video, Justin Beahm is always a pleasure to have a discussion with. His ideals and outlook are always very positive and inspiring. Beahm takes nothing for granted and sees the value in every little corner of creativity. He’s also the head honcho […]

Closing With A Song: “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” by Backstreet Boys

The Brandon Peters Show Closing with a Song Everybody Backstreets Back

It’s that timeless combo of Classic Monsters and Boy Bands, right? One of the most popular boy band songs from the 1990s and videos was Backstreet Boys “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”. Stop trying to act too cool. You know it, I know it. It’s hard not to sing or move to it. We actually touched upon […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Earthbound”

The Brandon Peters Show - Old Space Show - Space: 1999 - Earthbound

Our popular segment takes another journey in Space: 1999 for its fifth episode “Earthbound”. In this episode we get a big guest appearance in the form of god-like human, Sir CHRISTOPHER LEE! Beardo also stumbles out of his space bunk beds to make a showing, too. And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: […]

Hubie Halloween with Jessica Alsman

The Brandon Peters Show: Hubie Halloween with Jessica Alsman

Jessica Alsman is one of my favorite people and one of the best to collaborate with, too. Since our first meeting over four years ago, we’ve recorded plenty of hours of content for the earwaves. She’s typically game for whatever I’ve put her through and gives a billion percent every time. When Cult Cinema Cavalcade […]

Closing With A Song: “Hazard” by Richard Marx

Closing with a Song: Richard Marx Hazard

“Hazard” by Richard Marx is a music video that came to mind IMMEDIATELY upon the desire to do music video retrospectives as a part of this show. When this video came out, I was but 8 years old, but I found myself quite entrance by it and the pop culture phenomenon of the time of […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Ring Around The Moon”

Old Space Show: Space 1999 Around the Moon

The runaway hit segment continues on through Space: 1999 for its fourth episode “Ring Around The Moon”. This episode puts Barbara Bain at the center of some 2001 type weirdness. Also Ted Clifford. Have you heard of Ted Clifford? Oh well this episode has Ted Clifford. And our regular reminder, we are going through Space: […]

4K Blusday 10-13-2020

The Brandon Peters Show 004 4K BLUsday 10-13-2020

This week, Middle Earth announces its going to take on the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray format as well as some reminder of the December announcements and we get into January with Kino Lorber. This week sees the historic Friday the 13th Limited Edition box set from Scream Factory, but under its shadows are some nice releases […]

The Bird With The Crystal Plumage with Molly Henery

The Brandon Peters Show 004 The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

Molly Henery is a writer whose work and film mentality I’ve admired for a long while now. It was only fitting the show’s first guest I’ve not collaborated with before and first foray into horror be her. She’s a hustler when it comes to writing and covering horror films for film festivals as well as […]

Closing With A Song: “Doing It All For My Baby” by Huey Lewis & The News

Huey Lewis Doing it for My Baby

When it comes to the week of discussing Back To The Future, you surely discuss “The Power of Love” right? Nah. Check the video out for yourself, its kinda lame in terms of being a discussion starter. Instead, with it being October, let’s use this to shift our gears into a more horror-centric focus for […]

Old Space Show: Space: 1999 “Black Sun”

Old Space Show Space 1999 Black Hole

We continue on through Space: 1999 for its third episode “Black Sun”. Another trippy 2001 inspired one. We begin to notice more tropes and find out “Computer” doesn’t always need a Human Decision. Some have asked me where you can find Space: 1999 to watch along. That’s great and it excites me this show is […]

4K BLUsday 10/6/2020

Not as huge a week as we had last week in both the announcements and new releases sections. But, there were still plenty of notables. There is some big Godfather news coming in and some more fun titles we have on the horizon for 4K Ultra-HD. A couple companies release entire month’s slates, while a […]

Back To The Future 1990s Remake

The Brandon Peters Show: Back to the Future 90s Remake

Back to the Future turned 35 years old this year. This movie has been a seminal part of mine and many people’s lives. It’s perfect. Since the day it was released it has been celebrated, discussed, had documentaries, interviews and books produced all about it. What more could a silly podcast add to the discussion […]

Closing With A Song: “Blister In The Sun” by The Violent Femmes

Closing with a Song Blister in the Sun - Violent Femmes

While it would be neat in most weeks to tie the Friday music video to the movie we’re discussing via the soundtrack, it doesn’t always work out so neatly. Many soundtrack videos consist mainly of clips from the film its supporting and nary a unique story to go with the music video. Luckily, with Grosse […]

Out Now Commentary: Seven (1995)

Out Now Commentary: Seven

I’m very excited to be bringing the Out Now With Aaron & Abe monthly film commentary series to The Brandon Peters Show. The commentaries will be released on both programs in the ongoing regular fashion. Once a month, in relation to a film coming out in theaters, a film hitting a milestone or perhaps one […]

Old Space Show: Space 1999 “Matter of Life and Death”

OSS Space 1999 Matter of Life and Death

With the stage setting first episode behind us, we dig into a meatier episode of Space: 1999 entitled “Matter of Life and Death”. We get to see what a mysterious planet looks like as well as hear some classic hot button 1970s science fiction jargon to boot. I loved the response to this segment last […]

4K BLUsday – 9/29/2020

Thank you to everyone for the enthusiasm for this niche segment here at The Brandon Peters Show. I have real passion for this stuff and I’m glad it’s coming across appropriately. This week was a pretty big one for 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray announcements leading all the way up to Vinegar Syndrome’s big drop. Their first […]

Grosse Pointe Blank with Aaron Neuwirth

The Brandon Peters Show: Grosse Pointe Blank

My next guest perfectly compliments and follows up with the premiere episode. When I began writing for Mendelson’s Memos, I had a list of things I was hoping to achieve through my film writing. One of which was to guest on a podcast to talk about film and what have you. After my second or […]

Closing With A Song: “Opposites Attract” by Paula Abdul

Opposites Attract by Paula Abdul

It feels right to close a weeklong show with a song before the curtain drops. I grew up in the 1980s and 1990s where music videos were a big part of pop culture. Going back and discussing these on a podcast has always been a curiosity of mine and now this show will have a […]

Old Space Show – Space:1999 “Breakaway”

Old Space Show Breakaway

This first series of Old Space Show will be the first Season of Space: 1999. “Old Space Show” is a term I commonly heard growing up when people who weren’t nerds like me would refer to stuff like Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica or the like. Personally, I love diving into genre television from the […]

4K BLUsday – 09/22/2020

4K BLUsday 9-22-2020

4K BLUsday will be a recurring segment for Tuesdays which is the official new release day for 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray, standard Blu-ray and DVDs in the United States. I have a history of working in the field for the medium, reviewing them and having a passion for collection movies dating back to childhood. I wanted […]

Shanghai Knights With Scott Mendelson

The Brandon Peters Show: Shanghai Knights

Welcome to the premiere of The Brandon Peters Show! When it came to selecting the first guest for The Brandon Peters Show, there was only one person I had in mind. Scott Mendelson and I met the first week after I moved to Los Angeles in late June of 2005. In addition to growing up […]
