Over 18 months ago, Andrew and family recorded a Commentary for STAR WARS for Andrew's Birthday. It was alcohol fueled and a tad ribald and some of the gags felt a bit tasteless given real life events but a few days later. Well, life has moved on since then and the world has even less of a sense of humour so if I don't release it now, I never will. So here's a special early Christmas treat - the "lost" episode 32.

Every day tales of men who stole an advanced helicopter from his own government and then hid it in a cave in Utah. Happy days!

In the final episode of Andrew's look at the Lee/Ditko Spider-Man run, the creators seem to run out of steam as Spider-Man faces some mediocre villains and the scripting takes the piss. It's the end of the road for the finest creative team to ever work on the character but no time for maudlin sentimentality - it's one last chance to revel in the genuis that was Steve Ditko and Stan Lee.

As Buffy The Vampire Slayer celebrates her 18th birthday as a TV show, Andrew looks at the first season of the show. With commentary on every episode, your host attempts to look at the first year of what would become one of the most celebrated genre shows on TV but that started as a joke show based on a failed movie airing on a fledgling network and consider why it made such a splash. With a no name cast, an untried showrunner and a goofy premise, Buffy would slay all naysayers by being witty, clever and emotionally charged. So step back to the late 90's as Andrew looks at the show once described as 'My So Called Life with vampires'.

Another rambling excursion into non-comics related topics leads Hey Kids, Comics Co-Host Andrew Leyland to read old Starlog magazines and re-watch old 70s Sci-Fi Television. What is the verdict on Gerry Anderson's live action television series, UFO and SPACE:1999? Do they hold up in these crazy CG days? Well, Andrew has an opinion on it so why don't you join him?

This is a diffcult one to explain so bear with me. Andrew Leyland (that's me) of the Hey Kids, Comics podcast has been tooling around with ideas for when Hey Kids comes to its inevitable end and one such idea was THE PALACE OF GLITTERING DELIGHTS in which I get to talk about whatever I like. Think of this as a tryout for that. If it does well enough, maybe I'll do more. Anyway, this weekend the VERONICA MARS movie was released following an immensly successful KICKSTARTER campaign and being a fan of the show (and backer!), I wanted to talk about it. Another fan of the show (and backer!) is my best friend SCOTT ALLISON and, as we were going out for a beer or two, I decided to record an hour or so of us talking about the flick before our other mates showed up. This hasn't been edited (other than to drop in a few promos), the audio is raw and there is some profanity and it gets a bit rambling (as it does when beer is involved) but we had fun and we hope you will as well.
