Flopcast 357: Secret of the Sleeping Sharks

Here we go, kids! Time to flip though another goofy old issue of Dynamite magazine! (It's a Flopcast tradition, especially when we have to wait until next week for Kornflake's MarsCon report.) This is a 1978 Dynamite, and the cover story is, "The Bee Gees vs. The Beatles: Who's the Greatest?" Our answer is The Bay City Rollers, which is why no one asked us. Also featured in this issue: Tatum O'Neal makes a horse movie; another lame trick from Magic Wanda; amazing new ways to watch TV (cable, video tape recorders, and something called Qube); Dynamite Bummers; and some Bic pen scribbles that make us question the puzzle-solving ability of our magazine's previous owner. Plus: Find Flopcast personnel on recent episodes of The Batcave Podcast, The Watch-A-Thon of Rassilon, and Earth Station One... and Happy Birthday to Erik Estrada. Or nada. Your choice.

Show Notes

Happy Birthday to Eric Estrada!

Dynamite Magazine poses all the important questions...

Tatum O'Neal in International Velvet:

What a bummer!

Kevin has joined John in a new project on The Batcave Podcast, reviewing Electra Woman and Dyna Girl! Meanwhile, Felicity appeared on a recent Earth Station One episode discussing Coraline, and she will also be on the next installment of The Watch-A-Thon of Rassilon, coming out this week!
