Do you ever look back on the movies you watched as a kid and think, "How was THAT appropriate for my childhood?" Maybe these disturbing children's shows and movies have contributed to our childhood trauma. Or maybe we are more disturbed by them as adults than we ever noticed as kids because we were so into the action.
FTN contributors Jeff McGee, Darth Taxus, and Regina Davis join Scott to discuss these movies and shows. The group examines some scary, dark, and disturbing themes and how they might not have truly been appropriate for children.
The discussion includes Cloak & Dagger, The Goonies, The Wizard of Oz, The NeverEnding Story, the Muppet movies and more.
Jeff and Regina are co-hosts on a podcast called The Pilot Episode where they watch and review the first episode of different TV shows.
Jeff also co-hosts Star Wars Splash Page where he and Matt Moore discuss that week’s Star Wars Comics. Both podcasts can be found on Marvin Dog Media.
Regina also co-hosts Comic Book Noob with Scott Murray and Matt Moore.
Darth Taxus is currently playing country and western music with Gene Tobin around Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
Today's episode features a talented special guest starring in a time travel mystery series and two memorable conversations in honor of Black History month.
Landon Gordon plays Wyatt in The Disney Channel's Secrets of Sulphur Springs, a TV series featuring time travel, town secrets and unexplained phenomenon. After his father unexpectedly moved the famiy away from Chicago, Wyatt and his siblings soon realize their new home (a hotel) might be haunted by a missing girl. As his brother (Griffin) and his new best friend (Harper) investigate the mysteries, Wyatt and his sister set out to get some answers of their own.
Landon joins Scott on today's episode to discuss the role, time travel, generating scares and much more.
In honor of Black History Month, Scott also shares his memorable 2013 interviews with two Tuskegee Airmen - Master Sergeant Joseph Montgomery and Brigadier General (then Colonel) Charles McGee. These interviews were conducted in conjunction with the release of the George Lucas movie - Red Tails.
Both men discuss the challenges of fighting wars on a global scale while enduring personal battles at home.
In the last episode of 2021, Scott talks about some notable stories and interviews from his podcast experience. Then Lou Mongello (WDW Radio) joins the show to discuss his new book The Disney Interviews: Volume 1 and how his passion for Disney led to some amazing opportunities to speak with some big Disney names. Lou also shares advice for aspiring interviewers and podcasters.
