The Fellowship is pleased to present more of our Retro Month, where we re-imagine topics from our first year of podcasting. This week we're talking about movies that should have gotten a sequel. This is a tricky one (in more ways than one), but we pulled some interesting ideas out for it (we think). Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present more of our Retro Month, where we re-imagine topics from our first year of podcasting. This week we're talking about cartoons that we'd like to see again. If this wasn't already an exercise in nostalgia, we crank it up to 11 with this one🙂. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present more of our Retro Month, where we re-imagine topics from our first year of podcasting. This week we're giving some comics characters their own series. There's a ton of potential out there for cool stories, and we're just scratching the surface here. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. No catastrophes or anything, just some irreconcilable scheduling stuff. We'll be back next week with more of our usual silly behavior. If you have a moment, though, check out our website and our weekly picks, and maybe grab a rerun episode to listen to. And if we don't say it enough, thank you for listening and hanging out with us 🙂   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the voice channel on the 4th Saturday of the month; details...

The Fellowship is pleased to present the first week of our Retro Month, where we re-imagine topics from our first year of podcasting. This week we're revisiting questionable movies that we want to remake. Remakes are not our favorite thing, but man, do some of these need it. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Marvel character Moon Knight. He's an interesting character who has gotten some questionable treatment (and almost no continuity) over the years, and now he's getting a series with Oscar Isaac. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. Just a planned week off, though not an entirely boring one, to be sure. We'll be back next week with more of our usual silly behavior. If you have a moment, though, check out our website and our weekly picks, and maybe grab a rerun episode to listen to.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of "the year comics went dark," focusing on 1986's Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns. These two books (maybe singlehandedly) created a seismic shift in superhero stories for years to come. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1981 classic Raiders of the Lost Ark, where we're joined by podcaster and old pal Eddie Medina. This is a popular series of films, and also we're getting a new one next year? It seemed like a good time to chat about it. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present a new Casting Call for a current-day Justice, Inc. movie. Pulp heroes hold an interesting spot in literary and film history, and we think it could be fun to see where we can go with them. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

Shoutouts:

A fond farewell to comedy legend Jerry Lewis, who died this week at age 91 - condolences to his family and friends, and thank you, sir, for all the laughs

[Note: slight hiccup in the audio here; Thomas was saying that he didn't think he'd ever seen any of the films from when Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis actually worked as a team. -m]

Eddie Medina, who gets a shoutout for not being on this week's show (just kidding, of course - we asked him to join us, but he wasn't able to do so this week. Perhaps next time…)

Manny the Martyr - thanks for letting us use your music
