Dead or alive, you're listening to this PodCast! JAL and Ryan stay out of trouble and talk a 1980's sci-fi action drama satire that's way the hell better than it should be. We look at the movie that may have had way more about to say about our present day back in 1987 than near any other sci-fi of the last 50 years. Join us as talk what we love about a movie about a guy we call "Robo".

147: "Amadeus" (1984) - a Signal Watch Canon episode w/ Alfredo and Ryan
Alfredo returns to discuss a movie that goes way back to make a household name a lot more understandable to us modern folk.

Join Alfredo and Ryan as we take on a cinema classic, and get a little classical ourselves.

We assemble the finest trio possible to take on the third in the Salkind's Superman franchise - this one inexplicably very heavy on very adult comedian Richard Pryor.

135: "Aliens" (1986) - The Signal Watch Canon w/ SimonUK and Ryan
We're talking the movies in our personal canon - the movies that opened our minds, expanded our horizons and maybe helped inform who we are.

132: "Muppet Christmas Carol" (1992) - A Xmas Genre Xrossover w/ Stuart & Ryan
Stuart and Ryan talk the Dickens out of a movie featuring a bunch of felt animals and a CBE for the arts of England. It's got ghosts, a weirdo pretending to be a great author, great sets and a missing song. Maybe not a huge hit when it showed up, it's now a staple of holiday viewing and both very much a Muppet movie and very much a Christmas movie - so it fits the theme for this year.
59 minutes | Dec 6, 2020
