139 - I Didn't Research That Question - Week of 12/5/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 15th anniversary of the TV show Most Extreme Elimination Challenge (MXC) and the 30th anniversary of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K). Two completely different, yet equally groundbreaking shows, and both were funny as hell. We've got quite a range of opinions on these two, and we sprinkle in our typical antics, as well as our picks of the week

What we're up to this week:
Hellboy Omnibus, a Postal trade, a Kill or Be Killed trade (dark but awesome comics)
Another local convention (this one in Irving) - a couple of cool panels (Steranko, voice actors)
Road trip and dog rescue stuff instead of reading comics [way more important, too, as we all pointed out - kudos to Liz for taking on that kind of volunteer work 🙂 -m]
Batman: The Golden Age collection, Walt Simonson's Battlestar Galactica Artist Edition (beautiful)

15 years of MXC! 30 years of MST! So much fun TV in the '80s and '90s. That's right, kids, this is what we did in high school and college rather than go to class 😉 
[The show Les mentioned, the weird one from Tulsa, was Dr. Mazeppa Pompazoidi's Uncanny Film Festival and Camp Meeting, hosted by Gailard Sartain. You might not know the name, but you've seen him (yet another of our infamous "oh yeah, that guy" folks). See the link and you'll get it. -m]
