A Knight Light Special In Honour Of The Great Sir Roger Moore

Brendan loves talking James Bond, as does his guest Harris Thomas (as heard on our Casino Royale 10th Anniversary Special). It's just a shame that it's under such sad circumstances that they got back together to record this special episode.

The passing of Sir Roger has been devastating for Bond fans across the globe and both Brendan and Harris also wanted to pay their respects and share their memories of the iconic British actor and Unicef ambassador.

Brendan and Harris also discuss last weeks passing of fellow Bond family member and music legend,Chris Cornell. Harris shares his memories of touring with Cornell several years ago as well as his plans to honor him in the coming weeks.

It's a Knight Light Special!

On the eve of the new Beauty And The Beast movie being released in Australia and only hours before attending a special gala premiere of the film, Brendan is once again joined by his lovely wife Jess to record this special episode of The Knight Light.

Brendan and Jess pointed The Construct satellite towards Los Angeles and were joined by very special guest, Samantha Bell DiGenova, who, amongst other characters, used to play Belle at Walt Disney World and Tokyo Disney! Yes that's right, a real life Disney Princess on The Knight Light!

I what was a dream come true for Jess, you'll get to hear all about Samantha's time as Belle as well as how she got the role and what it took to become the character every day.

You may have also seen the Buzzfeed video that swept social media last week of Emma Watson answering fan questions whilst being surrounded by Kittens.  Well what you wouldn't know is that the person talking to Emma off screen and handing her the kittens was Samantha!

So you'll get to hear what happened behind the scenes of that video and Samantha's experience of not just meeting Emma Watson (and what Emma said when she found out Samantha used to play Belle) but the entire cast of Beauty And The Beast at the films LA press junket.

So set aside your provincial life and join Brendan, Jess and BELLE (!) in the great wide somewhere that is The Knight Light.

Christmas Movie Special


It's a Knight Light Christmas Special!

It's no secret around The Construct that Brendan LOVES Christmas and a big part of the festive season is Christmas movies.  So it only makes sense that our resident Christmas kook would want to do a special podcast on the subject.

Brendan didn't want to do this special alone and put out a call over to California for the only other podcaster who loves Christmas as much, if not more, than he does - Mr Andy DiGenova from Holy Batcast, Batman News and the RF4RM podcasts!

Brendan and Andy both chose three of their favourite Christmas movies to discuss and as luck (or a totally planned move) would have it, the guys both picked an often forgotten Christmas masterpiece for the last film they discussed.

What movies did they pick?  Well you're gonna have to listen in to find out!

It's a Knight Light Special!

Can you believe it's been 10 years since the release of the first Daniel Craig (and many would say best ever) Bond film, 2006's Casino Royale?!

It was the film that had so many fans split or dead against it during its production but had them all doing a 180 by the time credits rolled. 

Brendan entered The Construct to record this episode but unlike previous Bond episodes, this is no Solo Mission.  Brendan fired up the satellite and is joined by Bond fan, collector and aficionado, Harris Thomas all the way from Detroit.

Not only do Brendan and Harris look back at Casino Royale and reflect upon their memories of the film from Craig's casting, to its cinematic release in 2006 and DVD release in 2007, you'll also here them discuss their James Bond fandom overall and in depth.

So slip into your comfiest tuxedo, grab a vodka martini and kick back while Brendan and Harris look back at the most pivotal Bond film of all time.
