Listener Feedback:

  • Another Comic-Con has come and gone. Lots of blockbuster movies made news, with DC bringing out the cast of Suicide Squad, including Will Smith, for the first time.
  • Thanks to Violet for sharing pics again. Some great ones, including a very good seat at the 50th anniversary reunion of the cast of Lost in Space. All the surviving members appeared to be there, including Billy Mumy (Will), Mark Goddard (Major Don West), Marta Kristen (Judy Robinson) and Angela Cartwright (Penny). A BluRay collection with new footage will be released on September 15th, 50 years to the day that the show premiered.
