The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest Casting Call episode. This time we're adding some casting to the 1978 Superman film series (you know, Christopher Reeve and company). We have a list of characters and we've come up with casting ideas for them. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Mikey's Big Bag o' Nothing® - having to be the r-word

A trade-a-day reading group, starting to watch Happy

Bubba Ho-Tep on the big screen

AGFA film this month - Shame of the Jungle (1975)

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. Thank you!)

 

We mention near the end that you may want to have Google or Wikipedia handy while listening; sometimes we get a little obscure since we're talking about actors from the past. (Not if you're driving, though.)

 

Also, if you have any ideas for casting these characters, please share them with us on social media. We'd love to hear from you and discuss them :-)

 

[Note: Aliens was 1986. I can't believe I blanked on that… And I was way off on A Clockwork Orange (1971). -m]

 

As mentioned, not linking every name we talked about. But Les mentioned this list of Superman villains you can check out.

The Family Trade #4 (Image)

Jan 7, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein. We talk about the story, variations on the story, sci-fi implications, film adaptations and our usual silliness. And as always, our picks of the week.

Red Dwarf XII - good but not great

Vacation in central Texas, reading comics in the car - Wonder Woman The True Amazon, very impressive

Doctor Radar, Barbarella

Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing® - taking it easy this week

Dec 24, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the repercussions of the deal in which Disney is buying out most of Fox. There are a ton of moving parts in this, and a lot of potential for geek stuff to be affected, so we chatted about some of the possibilities. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

100 Years of Horror (Amazon Prime) - very cool documentary series once you get past the terrible opening titles

Negative Space (Dark Horse), Here's Negan, getting ready for the holidays

Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary book, Batman: Hush

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (what, a movie came out this week?), The Chair (the film from the Alterna comic), Logan

[Note: Thomas' microphone was doing that weird thing to his voice again. It did it once before during recording, but hasn't done it again since, so we didn't have any way to fix it. We're still not even sure it's his microphone, but we'll try to pin it down. Mostly it just makes him sound a bit autotuned. But anyway, sorry about that. -m]

Hawkman Found #1 (DC)

Dec 10, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the "Death of Superman" story arc on its 25th anniversary.

Dec 3, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China. After doing some of the darker Carpenter movies in October, we wanted to cover some lighter fare (that and movie discussions are, let's face it, fun). Our usual hijinks ensue, of course. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Murder Dice - a D&D actual play podcast that you should all check out

A Very Bad Guild - webseries centered (loosely) on DDO (Dungeons & Dragons Online) hosted by Dirty William that you should also check out

Holiday shopping, family visiting for the holiday (and a tangent)

Showcase Presents: Super Friends - interesting read, especially when it poked fun at Marvel

The Heretic - a cool crime story from a few years back

Movie time - Murder on the Orient Express, Justice League, AGFA at the Alamo (The Kentucky Fried Movie)

Marvel's Epic Collections - Iron Man: The Enemy Within
