The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. We had to deal with some weather-related issues (you probably heard about it on the news). 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!

The Fellowship is pleased to present the second installment of our comedy month for 2021. This year we're focusing on spy parody movies, and this week we're covering the Allen & Rossi vehicle The Last of the Secret Agents? from 1966. Allen & Rossi were a successful comedy team for a long time, and it's cool to see how that translates to a movie. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

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.

More Episodes
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.

What we're up to this week:
Supernatural rant with spoilers (I was very optimistic - you'll want to skip to about 16:15 to avoid them), watched Murder By Death on Discord, Classic Albums episodes on The Wailers' Catch a Fire and Sex Pistols' Never Mind The Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols, The Coed and the Zombie Stoner, The Best of Sex & Violence or Reel Exposure depending on where you find it (the other movie Les & Liz are talking about is Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death from 1989), Taking Shape II: The Lost Halloween Sequels (The Killer Inside Me was written by Jim Thompson in 1952 - there was a really good comics adaptation a few years ago)
