EPISODE 08 : THE BLACK HOLE (1979)

Matt and Dave go to robot heaven in this old-skool sci-fi classic from the late 1970s. On one side, the aphoristic, gung-ho Vincent and the fear and trembling of old Bob; on the other, the martial uniformity of the sentinels, the eerie horror of the cyborgs, and the malign presence and silence of Maximillian. Join us and the crew of the Palomino as we encounter the evil genius of Dr Hans Reinhardt, and the ambiguity of the black hole and the spacetime beyond.

ERRATA
> Dave did his classic of saying panning when he meant tracking, and panning shot when he meant crane shot. It’s almost as if he thinks every camera movement is a pan!
