We start our milestone 75th episode with some news and reviews, including a report from Steve about an exciting Babylon 5 related podcast and a little bit of Firefly/Serenity goodness. After that we revisit an old favourite section when Scott shares a guilty pleasure - this episode it's the 1991 kids TV show 'Dark Season', notable for being the debut of both Kate Winslet and Russell T. Davies.
Don't forget next episode we'll be talking about Asimov's 'Caves of Steel' so be sure to get your feed back in soon.

In this episode Scott and Steve discuss a lot of news from the last couple of weeks covering comic announcements, new TV, new online role playing MMO games, and comic conventions, both in the US and here in the UK.
In a Challenge Everyone section, they discuss Logicomix - The Search for Truth, a graphic novel about Bertrand Russell and his life. Steve pitches a fairly new TV show to Scott, one that has been around for a couple of years but he has only just caught up on, and Scott pitches a brand new TV series that has only just started airing in the US and will be showing in the UK in the next couple of weeks.
Don't forget, in Episode 76 we will be discussing our latest book club selection, The Caves of Steel by Isaac Asimov, and we will announce the next selection in that episode. There is still time to pick up a copy and send us your thoughts and comments on the book. If you would like to suggest a future book selection you can get in touch with us and get involved in the discussion. All contact links are available on the website www.comicbookoutsiders.com
In this episode Steve also announces a new venture, a book review website. In between book club selections Steve is always reading books, so he will be periodically posting spoiler free reviews of other genre books on his review blog www.stevesfantasybookreviews.blogspot.com. Despite the name it will not just be fantasy books, but also sci-fi, urban fantasy, thrillers and cross genre books.
