Call For Comments: Wakanda Forever and Replacing Deceased Actors

From Mav: So, I saw Black Panther: Wakanda Forever last week and without spoilers, it was basically everything I thought it would be. I enjoyed it a lot. Pretty much from the moment they announced they were still going to make the film, without recasting Chadwick Boseman, it was pretty clear that they were going…

Call For Comments: Doctor Who – It’s Bigger on the Inside!

“Time and space are modes by which we think and not conditions in which we live.”– Dimitri Marianoff,  Einstein: An Intimate Study of a Great Man From Wayne: I came to Doctor Who fandom fairly late, which, considering my hobbies and interests, is strange. Even so, I feel like I have always been aware of…

Call For Comments: Do We Need To Talk About Kanye?

From Mav: A few days ago, friend of the show (and host of the Handsome Genius Club Radio Show) Kingdom James texted me asking if I wanted to do a crossover episode where we talk about Kanye West’s recent nonsense. So I sat down to write it, but wasn’t feeling quite inspired, so I figured…

Call For Comments: Then Something Went Wrong

From Wayne: My first exposure to The Rocky Horror Picture Show was back around 1980 or so. I was in college and working as a volunteer teaching assistant for the secondary gifted program in my incredibly rural home county. One of the students had a copy of the Official Rocky Horror Picture Show Movie Novel…

Call For Comments: The Lord of the Game of the Throne and the Ring and Things.

From Wayne: Wow, there’s a lot of fantasy on TV these days! Given my addiction to comics I wasn’t completely oblivious to fantasy as a genre. I’m sure I read something with knights and dragons in it when I was a kid. I started playing Dungeons and Dragons around tenth grade, but was oblivious to…

CFC: Will the Real Ariana Grande please stand up?

One of these people is Ariana Grande. The other is cosplayer Paige Niemann. Which is which? From Mav: The nice thing about having your own pop culture podcast is that sometimes something happens and you’re like “what the actual fuck” and you just want to be given the opportunity to work things out? Well, I…

CFC: Wait, people really think Under the Cherry Moon is a bad movie?

From Mav: This is a different kind of call for comments than we usually do, but it may become a semi-regular feature. I was listening to old episodes of the podcast How Did This Get Made? a couple weeks ago and I came across their episode on the 1986 Prince film Under the Cherry Moon.…

Call for Comments: A League of Their Own

From Hannah: I love baseball. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, A League of Their Own (the 1992 film) means a lot to me — and I’m not alone in this. But as much as I think the 1992 film is one of those “great films,” Amazon Prime’s new television version may be just as important. The new…

Call for Comments: She-Hulk is Sensational… you just don’t know it yet!

From Monica: I know….we’ve only had one episode air so far and usually over at VoxPop we wait on this kinda thing. We’re also usually big champions of “adaptations don’t need to hold a deep reverence for adhering to their source materials.”  But this time around, I think we should do things a little backwards.…

Call for Comments: Mr. Sandman Bring Me a Dream

From Mav: Well, today is the day that I don’t think I ever believed would happen. There’s a Sandman TV series premiering on Netflix. It’s not that I’m surprised that there COULD be a Sandman TV series or even that someone would want there to be a Sandman TV series. Quite the contrary, it seems…
