The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of two classic TV shows, The Honeymooners and The Flintstones.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of two movies, Dick Tracy and Darkman, that released in 1990. Both were groundbreaking films in their own way, and in very different ways. We talk about the each of them, including some history on how they were made, a bit about when they were made, how well we think they were made, Danny Elfman, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

And if we don't say it enough, thank you for listening and hanging out with us 🙂   Announcements: Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & We're super excited to be partnered...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Bugs Bunny on his 80th birthday. His first "official" appearance was in July 1940, though he had been evolving for a couple of years by then. We're all big Looney Tunes fans around here, let me tell ya. We talk about the wascally wabbit, some of his co-stars, a bit about his creators, a little bit of a tangent about modifying the classics, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
