The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Scooby-Doo on or around its 50th anniversary. It's been a mainstay of children's television for a long time now, taking some format changes (and character updates) in stride. We get into our impressions from our younger days, the many variations over the years, the cultural impact, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual silly behavior and our picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Ghostbusters "franchise." Not gonna lie, we're mostly talking about the original 1984 film here, which is a favorite of ours. We get into our impressions from our younger days, interesting casting tidbits, the mediocre sequel, the controversial reboot, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual odd behavior and our picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our conversation with David Pepose, writer and creator of Spencer and Locke and the new series Going To The Chapel. We're big S&L fans around here, so this was a special treat for us 🙂. We get into his early days in comics, the Spencer and Locke movie project, the new book Going To The Chapel, feelings, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual crazy talk and our picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of The Wizard of Oz on the 80th anniversary of its 1939 premiere. We don't bother to hide our love for this one; its airplay on TV since the early days of TV have only helped it become part of our culture. We get into its creation, the books, the remakes (before and after), the casting, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual crazy talk and our picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Zorro on the 100th anniversary of his debut. He's kind of a quintessential hero, fighting for the people simply because he can. And though he's been active for most of the century, we wonder if maybe he doesn't get the love he deserves. We get into his creator, his movies and TV shows, his modus operandi, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual weird behavior and our picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present a Q&A episode. We got some great questions from listeners (and fellow podcasters) and we're answering a couple of them in this episode. We get into how geeky we really are, fangirling, Dobby vs Gollum, a Stan Lee biopic, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual strange behavior and our picks of the week.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. This one was planned, fortunately, so it's more about vacation than failure to perform 🙂. We did get together our picks of the week for you (see below). And we'll be back next week with more of our usual fun (and something we've been threatening for a while now?...). 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 & the Events tab...

The Fellowship is pleased to present another Casting Call episode. This time we're doing it a little differently - we're casting a new movie for Action Lab's Spencer & Locke comic series. It's a book that has been optioned for film, and it's got a deliciously dark storyline. We get into CGI, casting kids, movies vs streaming TV, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual odd behavior and our picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our conversation with Darin Henry, writer and publisher of Sitcomics. Sitcomics is one of the fresh new faces in the comics industry, and you're definitely going to want to check them out at Sitcomics.net (or talk to your local shop about contacting them to get their books). We talk about the Sitcomics cast of characters, working with amazing creators, rating systems, the formatting of comics, and a whole lot of other stuff.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Apollo 11 moon landing on or near the 50th anniversary of the event. This was a huge event not only from a scientific perspective, but also for nationalism during the Cold War and for popular culture (for the TV coverage alone). We talk about NASA, the government, conspiracy theories, space shuttle accidents, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual weirdness and our picks of the week.

Ripped from the headlines, we talk a bit about how the printing process works, what happens to your local stores when delays hit, and how annoyed Les--I mean the average reader gets with said delays. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Mikey - nothing fun (houseguests over the weekend)

TC - The MLJ Companion: The Complete History of The Archie Super-Heroes!

The entirety of North Texas - in Hell (it's been a little hot this week)
