Episode 44 - Don't Go the Moonlighting Route - Week of 1/4/17

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of some of the highlights of 2016 from a comics perspective. We didn't want to do a formal "best of" list, but we did want to share some of the big impacts on us this year. And as always, our picks of the week.

A fond farewell to Carrie Fisher, and our best wishes to her friends and family (and farewell to her mom Debbie Reynolds, who passed the very next day)

What we're up to this week:
The PodernFamily podcast feed - a sampling of PF podcasters celebrating the first anniversary of #PodernFamily
Taking the wife to a Die Hard "movie party"
Doctor Who Christmas Special (and a bit of a tangent on the last Fantastic Four movie)
And a brief review of Passengers
