Episode 110 - Flickers Von Caviken

There is a popular belief that mankind was guided in the past by visitors from another world. This core idea is  behind masterpieces like 2001: A Space Odyssey and also the hit History Channel show Ancient Aliens.  We look at two films on the podcast that also explore this idea. We start off with a TV movie from 1975 called "Search for the Gods". It stars the young Kurt Russell and the also-young Stephen McHattie.  It is a very sober story of a child of privilege who is on a search for truth. He is guided by the universe to Taos, New Mexico where he comes into possession of strange artifact that powerful forces want to obtain. This starts him on a journey that was meant to launch a TV series, but unfortunately, this did not happen.  We follow that up with the 1980 theatrical release Hangar 18, which stars Gary Collins and Darren McGavin in the story of a captured UFO being held in a top-secret military base where a team of scientists are trying to study the mysterious craft, while the government is trying to hide the truth...no matter what is required.  It is pure cheese and an absolute blast.  Let us know what you thought of the show by writing to flickersfrom@yahoo.com or flickersfrom@gmail.com or just leave us a message on our Facebook page.
