The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the separation of Dan DiDio as Co-Publisher at DC Comics. The announcement in February was not loud, and we haven't really learned much since then, either. But he held the job for quite some time, and did a reasonable job of it. We talk about his background, some of his notable achievements, some of the opinions he's voiced over the years, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the origin of the Fellowship of the Geeks. Weird, huh? But we've been doing stuff as a group for ten years now, so it seemed like a good time for a look back. We talk about the Comic Book Craze days, the webcast, the website, the assembly of the team, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

We probably can't get away with calling it Funny February any more, but we couldn't get out of this without talking about one of the funniest shows of all time. We talk about the cast, the writing, the energy, the awkwardness, the context, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest Casting Call episode, where we're casting a reboot of the 1982 Police Squad TV series. Funny February is stretching into March a bit, and it's time for a Casting Call, so let's modernize this hilarious (if not successful) show by the creators of Airplane!. We talk about who we'd use, how we'd make it, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the classic comedy film Airplane!. Funny February is still with us, and this week we revel in the inspired madness of this disaster movie spoof. It made a ton of money, it made the creators famous, and it revitalized some fading careers. We talk about the movie, its impact on pop culture, the genius of the writing, how it was made, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the comedy legacy of Mel Brooks. Funny February is rolling along, and we're talking this week about one of the masters of the comedy movie. Many of his films rank as the best of all time, and we're big fans around here. We talk about the movies, his TV career, the genius of his co-stars, the art of parody, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. It was a perfect storm of technical problems and illness (nothing catastrophic, just annoying enough to get in the way). 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: Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1985 movie Clue. This is the first in our tribute to comedy that we're doing in February. Clue may not have been a box-office success, but holy cow is it funny. We talk about the movie, the awesome cast, similar movies, dark comedy, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the history of Desilu Productions (created 70 years ago). They did a lot of groundbreaking stuff back in the day, and, surprisingly in that time period, was run by a woman for a lot of its existence. We talk about how it began, some of the things they did differently, some of the things they pioneered, some of the shows they made, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

More Episodes

The Fellowship is pleased to present a list of TV reboots or reunions that we'd like to see. There have been several successful ones recently, so we decided to try our hand at picking a few to suggest to the powers that be in TV land. We all have some interesting and varied ideas, and we add our usual silliness (maybe an extra dose tbh), as well as our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Comics pile - DC 100-Page Giants, Knights of the Dinner Table, Kickstarter book on deck

Labor Day (hope everyone had a good one), caught up on Supernatural, Marvel movie marathon (tangent starts here, but it's a fun one)

Football game at the University of North Texas which featured a post-game wrestling card featuring the von Erich family (local pro wrestling legends) (and another tangent; I'm impressed by the sheer quantity of movie references in this thing ;-)

Thomas' Big Bag 'o Nothing® - not much going on this week

TV reboots and reunions - topics like this are fun for us because we learn so much about, well, if we're being honest, useless stuff. But that's what makes it all fun, right?

Moon Maid #1 (American Mythology)

Oblivion Song #7 (Image) with a bonus: the first trade is out this week, too
