The Fellowship is pleased to present our "what if" discussion of a theoretical third season of the 1960s Batman TV show. We continue the series as is, but with a new group of characters and guests every week, ranging from the obvious to the insanely twisted. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Christopher Mihm in town - Attack of the Moon Zombies

[Note: Revenge of the Creature was Clint Eastwood's first movie appearance. The first "spaghetti trilogy" movie came out in 1964. -m]

Dec 4, 2016

The Fellowship is pleased to present our ideas on who we would place in Marvel's "Trinity." Social media feedback (thanks to all who responded) were swayed by the movies, and we tried to steer it back to the comics (as we often do). Oh, and Star Wars tangent, anyone? And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Blu-ray extras for the third Hobbit movie (not necessarily the movie, though)

The Black Monday Murders first arc - genius in every way

Spookhouse (Eric Powell) and Motor Girl (Terry Moore)

The revamping of our website and a new logo - coming in January :-)

Teen Titans omnibus

Marvel's Trinity: Link to Tom's editorial from back in 2011

 

And of course, leave it to us to find a way to list more than three options each for a "trinity"…

 

[Also, a brief apology for sound quality; the new microphone I got crapped out spectacularly last week (hence the missing show). I had to go back to the old one this week, so I sound like I'm 10 feet back from it. Another new one will be here in time for next week's recording. Thanks for your patience.]

The Fellowship regrets to tell you that we will not be able to release an episode this week. We had a tech problem which resulted in the total loss of the recording, and with the holiday this week we were unable to schedule a backup recording session. But please do not despair! We will return next week with another exciting episode, and if you need a fix please feel free to check out one of our previous shows (like the Terry Moore interview - we're rather proud of that one). And I did manage to salvage our picks of the week for your entertainment, listed below.
