"Children of the sun, see your time has just begun..." And it's not likely to end for a long time. A really long time...
Mark and Martyn watch the first episode of the eternal saga that was The Mysterious Cities Of Gold, and marvel at the sinister undertones of child slavery and ritual sacrifice that seem to go hand in hand with the 80s. I'm starting to wonder how we made it out alive...

"Everybody knows, Badger loves..." an incompetent ventriloquist's hand up its arse.
Mark and Martyn watch the baffling kids' series about a traveller and his badger-shaped mashed potato-obsessed sock that somehow lasted ten years.
