Episode 416 – We Insure We Drew No Rust on Meeno
Sean and Todd are back together in the studio! And what are we hitting on today? Alec Baldwin is being charged in the on-set death from his movie Rust (1:05). We offer our unprofessional opinion on the story. We talk about the Crow and Brandon Lee’s death (7:31). We dip into the death of Jon-Erik Hexum and reminisce on the show Voyageurs and its star Meeno Peluce and the connection to Ronnie James Dio (19:46). What about insurance on movie sets (27:58)? Just what does that cover and what is it for? Brandon Lee’s death required a whole bunch of work in post to save the film: just what did they have to do (30:36)?
Voyageurs awakened the imagination of many kids in the 80’s: What was this show and whatever happened to Meeno Peluce (32:48)? What were your favorite child actors of that era? (37:44) We talk about ET and it’s impact on films, ensemble casts and Drew Barrymore (42:30). We reminisce about the show Buck Rogers and compare the acting to it to the film was in (48:52).
Mego Toys made the coolest toys in the 70’s. From Star Trek to Planet Of The Apes and various others, they were the top toy maker when we grew up (1:07:07). Others shows that captured our imagination was The Man From Atlantis (1:13:32). Does anyone remember BJ and The Bear (1:16:59) ? What this the inspiration for Trunk Monkey? (1:19:04)
Special shout out to Nicholas Friesen, Ryan Murphy, Brian Cook from WHY, James Beaver, and Eric Senich, and let’s not forget about our own Karen Bee.
