Episode 72 - Oh My God, The Cows - Week of 7/26/17

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion about comic strips. We talk about several of our favorites from childhood, some of which are still around today (though not necessarily in a daily newspaper). And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Movie Sign with the Mads - a cool movie podcast starring Dr. Forrester (Trace Beaulieu) and TV's Frank (Frank Conniff) of MST3K fame
The Blair Witch (2016) - overall an okay movie, but nothing surprising (a little too close to the original)
And we tangent off into other horror movies (a bit)
[Les is out on vacation this week. -m]

The strips we listed as our favorites:

The Far Side
Family Circus
Life in Hell
