SciFiFX Podcast #61 – Sci-Fi Monsters

This podcast is all about classic sci-fi monsters. We go back through several of them, breaking down each monster, talking about parts of each one we liked, and things we didn’t like. We talk about the history of Frankenstein,  the Daleks and their destructive nature. We leave no stone unturned when we visit Star Trek‘s Borg, Star Wars‘ Darth Vader, and several Terminators. As if that wasn’t enough we then venture into Predators, Alien Xenomorphs, not only independently, but also jointly. We also enjoy little discussion about Cylons, Godzilla, Gremlins, Jurassic Park dinosaurs, The Fly, The Invisible Man, Dune‘s Sandworms, the Martians from The War of the Worlds, and just when you think we’re done, we stop off at Babylon 5, sit at the bar, and talk a little bit about the Shadows.

This is part one of a three-part coverage of monsters. Part II of this podcast comes in September, when we’ll discuss our favorite fantasy monsters.  And then in October, we tackle the legendary monsters of horror in Part III. This podcast was tremendously entertaining for us. That being said we also understand that there is a tremendous amount of monsters in the sci-fi TV series and movies that we’ve missed. If we’ve missed one of your favorites we would love to hear from you. Please take the time to send us feedback by clicking on the feedback link on the right-hand side of the page or you can send us an e-mail at We look forward to hearing from you, and we hope you enjoy the show.
