From The Archives! As Picked by Colin Duff / @Duffinism

Be warned, the sound quality of this show is ....pretty bad. It was recorded on our original equipment, which was quite terrible.

Lock-In 128  - Transformers The Movie (1986) Commentary

Originally planned as one of our Anniversary shows for Quick, Change The Channel, I feel that Gruff, Rob and Stu sitting and watching the 1986 TF movie should be a Lock-In and a Lock-In only.

After all..... Its a good film... Isn't it?
