This previously archived episode of Anomaly Supplemental was originally released on August 4, 2011 and was only the fourth episode of Anomaly Supplemental. We felt it would be a good tribute to the late David Bowie, who we lost this week.

In this episode of Anomaly Supplemental, KC, Anne, and Sue cover Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, the 1986 cult classic starring a young Jennifer Connolly and music idol David Bowie. This movie may be remembered for David Bowie’s performance and his… ahem… “dream balls,” but in this episode we discuss the film’s themes, the catchy songs,  the amazing puppetry, our favorite characters and scenes, and behind the scenes trivia (including something you may not know about a certain Star Trek actress).

In case you’ve never seen this magical film we call Labyrinth, here’s a synopsis:

LabyrinthPoster

 

Frustrated with baby-sitting on yet another weekend night, Sarah (Jennifer Connolly), a teenager with an active imagination, summons the goblins to take her baby stepbrother away. When little Toby actually disappears, Sarah must follow him into a fantastical world to rescue him from the goblin king (David Bowie). Guarding his castle is the labyrinth itself, a twisted maze of deception populated with outrageous characters and unknown dangers. To get through it in time to save Toby, Sarah befriends the goblins in hopes that their loyalty isn’t just another illusion in a place where nothing is as it seems.

Finally, as we promised in the podcast, here is a picture of a puppy named Ludo. Thank you, Lee, for permitting us to post it on the blog.
