0087: The Witch From Mercury Prologue
We run through our thoughts on The Witch From Mercury Prologue! Are we hyped? Definitely! Does Isaac have a lot of questions? Absolutely! We consider exactly what layer kills your child, the curious case of Cardo's "death," the possibility of the L'Frith having A.I. and/or using nanotech, and whether the Development Council's evil blue room with the glass floor should be added to the Gundam Hotel. Plus, Isaac blows out your candles and does an impression of The Count from Sesame Street!

Our mailbag is overflowing once again, so we dive in to your comments on this double-sized episode! We run down your suggestions for the Live Action Film opening and Top Female Pilots (including a few glaring omissions...), consider Gundam Wing's place in the universe, saddle up for a showdown with a Gundam pilot version of Blondie who travels a lonely road, ponder whether Amuro and Char should settle their score with dueling Chrono Gundams, and much more!

0085: Top 5 Mobile Suit Weapons
We countdown our top 5 favorite mobile suit weapons! From beam rifles to beam sabers, from heat hawks to bazookas, we're scouring all timelines for those weapons of war near and dear to our hearts. In this episode, Isaac forgets how to count and brings a list of 8, Mark Gatha shouts attacks during surgery, we decide that Bandai should do a collaboration with Nerf, and Isaac gets tripped up by fin funnel geometry. What are your top 5 MS weapons of all time? Let us know!

0084: Stardust Memory Review Part II
Solomon, we have returned! In this double-sized episode, we conclude our review of Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory! This episode is all about the show's multitude of conspiracies and their players - Earl Grey, Coliny and his cat, Jamitov, Bask Om and his goggles, O'Sullivan, Cima - basically everybody! Plus, we ask the hard questions like, was Cima really a hero the whole time? What happened to Coliny after 0083? Why can't Nina accept her ex-boyfriend is a mass murderer? How can Kowen get revenge on Coliny and Jamitov? Should Bandai make a Master Grade Dendrobium Orchis? (Yes!)

0083: Stardust Memory Review Part I
To commemorate episode 0083, we review Isaac's favorite series - Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory! In this double-sized episode, we call for listener renditions of The Winner's saxophone, admire all of the Delaz Fleet's sharp dressers (here's looking at you, Cima), wonder how Lt. Burning aka Lt. Brown Leather Wallet got his tan, and agree that Monsha is human garbage. Oh and watch out for those thuggish Lunarians lurking around every corner! Commence Operation Stardust!

0082: The Witch From Mercury - Story, Characters, and MS, Oh My!
Information about The Witch from Mercury has finally been revealed! Cue wild and reckless speculation! In a world full of space corporations, meet protagonist Suletta Mercury (she's from Mercury). Isaac loves a good space corporation tale. Will there be Harry Potter/ Game of Thrones like houses? Will we get a tournament arc? Is Guel angry because his name is weird? What is up with the Dilanza? Is Shaddiq our Char but with poofy pants this time? We trust in Suletta to save us all

0081: Crossbone Gundam: Steel 7 Review Part III
Our suicide mission aboard the Icarus comes to an end as Tobia and the rest of the Steel 7 arrive at Jupiter to destroy the colony laser. Will Tobia's X-1 Full Cloth be enough to handle the Callistos and their Dictii? Amidst the fierce battle, we ponder if Giri's Vigna Ghina II was formerly owned by Dorel Ronah, ask why Giri hates the Callistos so much (bagels are involved), agree to disagree about space geometry, and punch a hole in Rosemary's sudden profound philosophizing. Plus, you'd better believe there are a lot of Dictus and Dictii jokes!

0080: Mobile Suit Gundam (1979) Review Part II
We conclude our review of the original Mobile Suit Gundam TV series with a triple-sized episode! In the back-half, Isaac experiences a roller coaster of emotions as the Doms arrive (hooray!) but then get completely spanked (;_;), while Brian complains about the G-Fighter and modern takes on newtypes controlling time. Plus, Sleggar slaps Mirai into loving him, the Big Zam dominates the Federation and our hearts, Isaac and Kycilia bond over their hatred of Lalah’s flowy dress, Sunset Productions outlines an updated and expanded 100 episode MSG series, and Isaac aims his Dom’s beam bazooka at father-of-the-century Tem Ray. Who will survive? (definitely not Kycilia)

0079: Mobile Suit Gundam (1979) Review Part I
In the year 0079 of the Universal Century, a boy named Amuro Ray climbed into the cockpit of the RX-78-2 Gundam and changed the course of the One Year War. For episode 0079, we return from an extended spring break to discuss the series that started it all - Mobile Suit Gundam from 1979! In the first half of the series, we learn that Zeon women are ride or die to the very end, Garma loves himself, the Federation is definitely not your friend, the White Base's chef is truly dedicated to his craft, M'Quve drives a death onion, and the level of hand-to-face violence is off the charts!

0078: The Gundam Hotel: Earth Sphere Luxury Travel
The recent opening of Disney's Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser hotel has broken new ground in interactive vacation experiences. So naturally, Sunset Productions is here to Gundamify it. We cordially invite you to a two-night dinner theater/LARP/adventure (buffet included!) aboard the Buch Concern's latest luxury space liner within the neutral zone of Side 6. All ride-or-die Zeon space fascists are encouraged to destroy the Federation's new Gundam Unit 13 rumored to be aboard the ship. Enjoy some Titans foie gras while you sip a Zum City martini (meticulously measured Jupiter water also available) during your search for the Haro spy. The One Year War has never been this luxurious!

0077: Crossbone Gundam: Steel 7 Review Part II
With the Icarus literally hanging in the balance, Tobia and the Steel 7 force a rematch with Shadow in the Grand Canyon - who will survive? Volume 2 of Crossbone Gundam: Steel 7 continues to impress as we discuss Jovian tripods, Seadoos for mobile suits, the need for a Harrison series, Raspberry's OnlyFans, and the long awaited Europa and Raspberry team up. Plus, we talk about sherbet and Isaac sings a bar of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing!"

0076: Gundam Live-Action Film Opening & Ending Songs
If the upcoming Gundam live-action film had an anime style opening and/or ending song, who should sing it? We run through our wish lists which include pop queens, rock stars, rappers, and even some jazz swing! At the end of the day, we agree to go with the Flo for the intro and smell the Sunflowers on the way out. Which artists are on your wish lists? Playlist of artists mentioned: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0DCpC603bzcKCEbXbwnUzE?si=b99348fc3f7a4ca2

0075: Crossbone Gundam: Steel 7 Review Part I
Our UC NexT 0100 journey rolls on as we discuss the next phase of Tobia's journey in Crossbone Gundam: Steel 7! In the first volume, a god-like colony laser emerges, Crux Dogatie flies the Epstein Express, Tobia's royal space women "problem" worsens, Kincade keeps his happy ending, and Giri joins the cast of Chopped. Plus, it wouldn't be Crossbone Gundam without space cleavage - this time with more hot springs! Time's ticking, Tobia!

0074: Gundam as a Western
In this episode we tackle the age-old question, can Gundam work as a Western? You're damn right, pilgrim. You want Gundams wearing hats? We've got Minovsky radiation reducers. You want Gundams righting horses? We've got M.A.R.E.s. You want the Western newtype? Welcome to Whiskey Mode. Saddle up, partners, and join us as we hit the dusty trails to gather a band of do-gooder MS pilots brave enough to take on bounty hunters, corrupt mayors, and dirty marshals. Gundam as a Western? "That'll be the day."

0073: Gundam Wing Rewrite
Despite not being our favorite series, Gundam Wing has a solid premise that deserves another look. In this episode, we each take a shot at rewriting the series to fix our perceived flaws. Brian focuses on spotlighting Treize, making sense out of Zechs, and creating the dastardly villain Torothy. Isaac introduces us to the international boy band sensation known as L0 and their world tour which ends in a showdown with Dorothy’s Gun Dolls. Then we both sing a few bars of L0’s smash hit – Zero Interest Baby! L0 > BTS any day of the week!

0072: Crossbone Gundam: Skull Heart Review
Tobia and the Crossbone Vanguard return in Crossbone Gundam: Skull Heart! This volume has a little bit of everything - action, adventure, comedy, fairy tales, and even horror. Tobia rescues Twinker Bell the space princess, Seabook is on diaper duty, the Jupiter Empire comes after your mail, Amuro Ray returns as the ultimate soldier, and Harrison is attacked by a nefarious force that will drive you bananas! Plus, Isaac laments the lack of a Glemy Toto heir and we wonder who would win a full out space war: the Cosmic Era's space whales or the Universal Century's newtype chimpanzees?

0071: Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz Review
We conclude our journey through the animated After Colony timeline with a review of Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz! One year after the TV series, some guy we’ve never heard of named Dekim Barton comes out of nowhere hell-bent on ruining Christmas with his army of bellhops, squad of boy scouts, and a legion of Diet-Coke Heavyarms. Shockingly, the Preventers fail to prevent Barton’s machinations after the world disarms and the Gundam boys send their Gundams into the sun (except Wu-Fei who kept Gundam Naruto). Can the boys get their Gundams back in time to stop Barton and save Christmas? Join us aboard Dorothy’s bus line and watch Relena hit Mariemaia Khushrenada (allegedly) with some cold, hard total pacifism! Merry Christmas Eve, listeners!

0070: The Gundam Holiday Special 2021
Our annual tradition of holiday-themed Gundams continues! In an alternate universe, General Gihren Zabi plots to ruin Christmas by making a deal with a demon so powerful even the Nazis were afraid of him. Armed with his Gundam Sleigh-er and his herd of nine Reign-fear, Gihren and his ally from beyond the veil seek to extinguish all joy in the Earth sphere. Humanity’s only hope rests with the prototype Gundam X-MAS and its band of merry mobile suits – a surly Frosty the Snowman, an Abominable Snow Monster, and a femme fatale codenamed Ho-Ho-Holiday. Suit up and strap in for a very Merry Christmas, listeners!

Happy Holidays from Colony Drop!

0068: Gundam Wing Review Part II
We conclude our review of the Gundam Wing TV series with another triple-sized episode! Relena lets Dorothy into the Sanc Kindom despite those evil eyebrows; Romefeller sticks to its strength of holding daily meetings; Treize creates Epyon only to give it away because he wants to win by losing with Space Leos; Zechs takes control of White Fang because he looks more qualified than the guy in the vest; Quinze and the Engineers explain the plot in a few lines near the end hoping you don't notice; and the Gundam boys finally come together in the end. In hindsight, the whole conflict could have been solved with just communication... Plus, we both share recent real life encounters with Gundam Wing proving that we can never escape this series' legacy!
