The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the groundbreaking effects work of Industrial Light & Magic. ILM was spawned from George Lucas' unwillingness to work within the Hollywood machine, and they've amassed an impressive list of work to date. We talk about the beginnings of the team, the stunning list of movies and TV they worked on, their contribution to film in general, and a bunch of stuff in between....

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Skottie Young's awesome series I Hate Fairyland. Spoilers fly in this one, starting with how much we collectively love this book. We talk about Skottie's art, the birth of this story, the inherent weirdness of it, how we think it qualifies as a horror story, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our Casting Call for a 1965 X-Men movie. It can be tricky to make casting choices this far in the past, but it's still a lot of fun (for us) doing the research. We talk a whole lot about characters, a fair bit about actors you may not have heard of, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: Come hang out with us! We usu...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of summer movies. But since we can't be sure that we'll have movies this summer, we took it back to the summer movies of 1985. The 1980s was a decade of highs and lows, in movies or otherwise, and '85 had some major hits and some major misses. We talk a whole lot about the ones we liked, as much as we dare about the ones we didn't, and a bunch of stuff in between. ...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Crisis on Infinite Earths from DC Comics. This is one of the first big crossover events in comics, and is still one of the most talked-about storylines ever (not to mention the recent crossover treatment by the CW network shows). We talk about the book itself, the complexity of the story, the body count (spoilers, I guess), how important it was (and still is), and a bunch of ot...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of villain-centric comic series. The Joker had his own title for a while in 1975, and we're wondering this week if it's a viable, sustainable concept. We talk about the Joker title, the hero-villain dynamic, which other villains have had their own titles, which ones we'd like to see title for, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics pi...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Wizard Magazine and whether it could be viable today. It was really popular back in the 90s, but could it rise again from the ashes? We have opinions (shocking, right?). We talk about the magazine, the kind of stuff it covered, where and how we get that stuff today, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: Com...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our conversation with comics creator Steve Bryant. He's got a new Kickstarter campaign for The Catch, his story about a bounty hunter for super-powered skips, which you should definitely back. He's also the creator of the Athena Voltaire series and the Ghoul Scouts series, both from Action Lab Comics. We talk about the KS campaign, his previous work, his webcomic, what he does when he...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the separation of Dan DiDio as Co-Publisher at DC Comics. The announcement in February was not loud, and we haven't really learned much since then, either. But he held the job for quite some time, and did a reasonable job of it. We talk about his background, some of his notable achievements, some of the opinions he's voiced over the years, a bit of editorializing, and a...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the legendary British TV show Fawlty Towers. We probably can't get away with calling it Funny February any more, but we couldn't get out of this without talking about one of the funniest shows of all time. We talk about the cast, the writing, the energy, the awkwardness, the context, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the ...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest Casting Call episode, where we're casting a reboot of the 1982 Police Squad TV series. Funny February is stretching into March a bit, and it's time for a Casting Call, so let's modernize this hilarious (if not successful) show by the creators of Airplane!. We talk about who we'd use, how we'd make it, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and o...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the classic comedy film Airplane!. Funny February is still with us, and this week we revel in the inspired madness of this disaster movie spoof. It made a ton of money, it made the creators famous, and it revitalized some fading careers. We talk about the movie, its impact on pop culture, the genius of the writing, how it was made, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tan...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the comedy legacy of Mel Brooks. Funny February is rolling along, and we're talking this week about one of the masters of the comedy movie. Many of his films rank as the best of all time, and we're big fans around here. We talk about the movies, his TV career, the genius of his co-stars, the art of parody, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and o...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1985 movie Clue. This is the first in our tribute to comedy that we're doing in February. Clue may not have been a box-office success, but holy cow is it funny. We talk about the movie, the awesome cast, similar movies, dark comedy, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.   Announcements: Come hang out with us!

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the history of Desilu Productions (created 70 years ago). They did a lot of groundbreaking stuff back in the day, and, surprisingly in that time period, was run by a woman for a lot of its existence. We talk about how it began, some of the things they did differently, some of the things they pioneered, some of the shows they made, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tang...
