The Underbase Podcast (classics)
The Underbase Classics Episode 13: Peace

Not really a standard Underbase review but just a few team-members nattering for a few hours... folks somehow manage to cover a Wreckers-featured 1989 annual story, in the middle of it all. Along the way, we talk comics, families, politics, films and fallen celebrities.

Looking to start back on a few more reviews soon, hopefully with a bit more of our regular structure.

The Underbase Classics Episode 010

A lost recording from last year's UNDERBASE CLASSICS, this unaired attempt to record a TRANSFORMERS:CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE book is 80mins of unashamed fun and laughter. Even if this is too long for your weekly commute, keep a hold of this for a day when you need a lift. Massive thanks to Gruffy, Joe and Paul for this.

The perils of Brandy delivering, the battle of Joe's vocal range and Paul trying not to die.

The Underbase Classics Episode 009

Your ears do not decieve you, it IS an UNDERBASE CLASSIC, squeezed into the schedules before John Barber can publish another 5 Transformers comics!

Finally finishing off THE ENEMY WITHIN (The Marvel UK classic from back, back, BACK in the day) with help from the team of Joe, Paul, Adam and special guest Andrew Turnbull.

BEFORE YOU LISTEN: Please listen to the first part of this review, released so long ago that one member of the team did not even realise he was going to become a father (again) before this second installment became available. . . .

The Underbase Classics Episode 007

A small bite-sized UNDERBASE CLASSICS rounds out our year as the attendees of the 2012 LONDON SOCIAL MEET recite the Ladybird classic THE AUTOBOTS LIGHTENING STRIKE! Note that there is heavy background noise, more than a few hecklers and, no, Adam meant to say "Marvel comics" and not "Hasbro" in his introduction. . . . Happy new year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Underbase Classics Episode 006

It's the second part of THE MAN OF IRON and that means Paul, Joe and Grufflock create the carnage, while host Ad8m fights an epic struggle to keep us on track. Intense discussion, frank analysis, and highbrow fayre here. . . . . no sign of "Mutley" at all. . . . . .

The Underbase Classics Episode 003

Adam, Paul and a special guest venture into issue 3 of the Marvel G1 miniseries. With copyright-disputed characters a-plenty, an official scale of “dumbassery” and possibly the most improbable special team since they announced the pairs for Strictly Come Dancing.
