Welcome to the Fellowship of the Geeks! We love to talk about pop culture, comics, and whatever else. Join Thomas, Mike, Les and Liz for some interesting (we think) conversations and a chuckle or two. And "Geek on, my friends."

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.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the voice channel on the 3rd ...

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.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the v...

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.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord!

The Fellowship is pleased to present a new Casting Call, this time for a theoretical Daredevil TV series starting in 1978. With the Superman movie and the Hulk and Spidey TV shows going on, this was kind of a mini-golden-age moment for comics in media. So we're running with it. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out ...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1976 DC/Marvel crossover event Superman vs The Amazing Spider-Man: The Battle of the Century. This was a big one at the time, with the Superman movie and the Spidey TV show going on. DC and Marvel don't always play nice, and this was one of those nice moments. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: We found a way to do our mon...

The Fellowship is pleased to present the final installment of our comedy month for 2021. This year we're focusing on spy parody movies, and this week we're covering the "official" James Bond spoof Casino Royale (1967). This is a film with a lot of moving parts, and our opinions reflect that. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - ...

The Fellowship is pleased to present a combined installment of our comedy month for 2021. This year we're focusing on spy parody movies, and this week we're covering Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965) and Modesty Blaise (1966). Both of these films share an obvious influence (see if you can spot it 🙂). Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: We found a way to do our m...

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 the first installment of our comedy month for 2021. This year we're focusing on spy parody movies, starting with the Derek Flint movies - Our Man Flint (1966) and In Like Flint (1967) starring James Coburn. These movies had quite an influence on what followed. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Disco...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest Casting Call episode. This time around we're making a streaming series for the crime-horror comic Nailbiter (Image Comics). If you're not familiar, it's a fun book about serial killers (with some interesting takes on culture and fandom if you read carefully). Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly ...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the long-running Canadian TV show The Red Green Show. Fifteen years and 300 episodes of the weird and hilarious antics of the guys of Possum Lodge, and another gem that we got through public television here in the States. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us...

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.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the voice c...

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.   Announcements: We found...

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.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord!

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.   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meet...

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 ...

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 t...

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...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1940 film The Mark of Zorro. This is a classic swashbuckler based on a (mostly) original American story with some interesting backstory. We discuss early action films, a little bit of Hollywood history, a little bit of the development of the sword itself, some compare and contrast with another great film, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and o...
