The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

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 of the Geeks Podcast

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.

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. This week gave us a freakin' list of stuff to deal with, so we're just rearranging the schedule a bit. 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 ūüôā   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the voice channel on the 4th...

The Fellowship is pleased to present the last of our discussion of sci-fi classics with Time Bandits (1981). Say what you will about Gilliam (and we do here), but his movies look amazing. But one last time, does it hold up? Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present the next of our discussion of sci-fi classics with Escape From New York (1981). We had some dissension in the ranks over this one, and a few wild ideas about film along the way. But again, does it hold up? Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present the next of our discussion of sci-fi classics with Logan's Run (1976). This one has some interesting themes in it (including predicting online dating?), and some great special effects for the time. But again, does it hold up? Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present the kickoff of a month of sci-fi classics, where we're discussing The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951). It's turning 70 this year, and it's a sci-fi classic, but does it hold up? 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. Tech issues got the best of us (along with a list of other weirdness). 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 this year's Horror Month, in which we're discussing films starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Week 1 starts us off with a pair of Dracula movies, Horror of Dracula (1958) and Dracula AD 1972 (1972).
