The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Sherlock Holmes film series from the 1930s and 1940s, starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Fourteen films, two different studios, and a world war make these movies their own thing, to say the least. 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. We took a little break for the holidays (which was mostly planned). 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 on Facebook...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our last episode of the year. This time we're playing a game called Weird Things Humans Search For, which is based on actual search engine data, and shows an interesting picture of what people want to know, to say the least 🙂 (so this one might sound a little more "edited" than normal). 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. 2020 is not quite finished with us yet, and circumstances didn't allow us to do our thing this week. 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 recent news that Warner Bros is planning to release several of their 2021 movies straight to HBOMax alongside their theater releases. The world is changing, and it's anyone's guess as to whether it's for the better or not. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1965 animated short A Charlie Brown Christmas. It's that time of year, gang, and we've got plenty of lockdown time to watch some holiday classics. And this one is a particular favorite of ours, though we have some opinions about some of the others. 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 latest Casting Call episode, this time for an Avengers film in 1967. This is a very different team than the one in the recent film franchise, and that might just send us off in some wildly varied directions. And since this is set decades ago, you may need our old friend Google to figure out who the heck we're picking in some cases 🙂. 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 of GoldenEye (1995), the first 007 movie that starred Pierce Brosnan. Brosnan's four-film run as Bond had a lot of highlights (and some significant lowlights), but that's not unusual for such a long-running series. We discuss the history of 007, the diversity of actors who played the role, the role of story in action films, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of two films by the Marx Brothers, Animal Crackers (1930) and A Night at the Opera (1935). If you need a break from the madness that is 2020, you can't go wrong with any of their movies. We discuss the chaos that was the Marx brothers, their Vaudeville background, stealing from the best, singing in movies, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
