We're back! Back in time... for a brand-new episode of the new season of Time Bandits. This time around, we're going to travel 40 years into the past to celebrate a film of our choice, and along the way we'll be making throwback playlists based on the month of 1980 we end up visiting.


This episode, we are going to check out the Roger Corman produced Star Wars also-ran titled Battle Beyond the Stars! Or is it Battle Amongst the Stars? Either way, this movie is the beginning of a number of major motion picture careers James Cameron who picked up the slack behind the scenes with special effects, ship-building and more. Not only that, this film serves as the meeting-point for some very important movie relationships that would lead to the creation of some huge, huge movies! So were we dazzled by the stories behind the movie more than the movie itself, or is it a really entertaining and charming film? We've got your answers!
