With both commercial and critical successes of Spider-Man: Homecoming leaving high expectations, the second film, Far From Home arrives in the massive wake of Avengers: Endgame. Though Tom Holland’s much praised portrayal of everyone’s favorite web-head seemed to have nothing to prove, it would also appear quite the contrary with lots to prove (due to fanboy constant demands for pitch perfect authenticity of character). We at TBC_afp are no different in that regard as we also measure up. Swing in to find out! #spiderpun
John Carpenter over decades has been commonly referred to as a master of the cinematic horror action genre. Yet, In fact, filmmakers such as James Cameron, Quentin Tarantino, Guillermo del Toro to name a few represent a generation who have been influenced by Carpenter’s eclectic style and in some case armed only with minimal equipment and vision for storytelling.
TBC_afp deep dives into two of Carpenter’s most iconic Sci-Fi pieces and in some respects, underrated works: The Thing (1982) and Starman (1984).
Sit back with some oatmeal and pie and enjoy!
As it’s currently reached the billion dollar behemoth status, Avengers: Endgame, sequel to Avengers: Infinity War (both directed by brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo) is the stamped culmination marking 11 years of cinematic triump and world building by Marvel Studios. With great pleasure and delight, TBC_afp reviews this massive film chronicling World’s Mightiest Heroes, thus closing a monumental chapter yet making room for some new stories… until next time we hear the battlecry: #AVENGERSASSEMBLE
A famous writer once penned the line “What's in a name? That which we call a rose; By any other name would smell as sweet” in order to evoke the idea that what really counts isn’t just how a thing is labeled. Rather that true heroic significance and character comes from within or that our actions define us. In SHAZAM!, starring Zachary Levi as DC Comic’s sometimes anti-Superman analog and child’s-eye-view superhero commentary (commonly know through the source material as Captain Marvel), WB/ DC Cinematic Universe attempts to deliver at the Box Office again at the wake of Aqua-success, The World's Mightiest Mortal. Follow TBC_afp as they take that leap of faith and call out SHAZAM!
It is Marvel Studio’s tenth anniversary “phase” build up and we are introduced to Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel. With actress Brie Larsen portraying the character lead as Marvel’s biggest heavy, there is without hesitation both excitement from fans and controversy at a trolling level. While, a week into Captain Marvel’s theatrical release and already a half billion dollars at the box office, it’s safe to assume the franchise’s security though conversations, sometime ignited by inspiration or gender politics rages on...
Actual Transcript from TBC_afp…
Miguel A. Velez (co-host): “I have to say that I was very much impressed with what they did for Alita. The fights are what any fanboy could possibly ask for. I hope to expect more down the pike from Rosa Salazar….
Edward Ng (co-host): Miguel, YOU IGNORANT SLUT!
Originally recorded on December of 2018, TBC_afp and invited Guests got together for discussion about a special fanboy topic spanning close to 60 decades. As the subject has been referred to as “The Oncoming Storm”, “The Bringer of Darkness” or “Last of the Time Lords”, this Hero is usually (and humbly) referred to as The Doctor. So, if you’ve been living under a rock either of recent or for the past 56 years still asking “Doctor Who?”, whether you’re a diehard Whovian or just a fair weather fan, then prepare some tea (with perhaps some fish fingers and gravy, biscuits even) as we traverse through Time and Space celebrating The Doctor of BBC’s Doctor Who.

Riddle me this? What do Morgan Freeman from Lean on Me, Mr. Bates from Downton Abbey and almost eight decades of fictional history have in common? Well, the answer is “Batman”, of course, but that doesn’t mean you ought to be shoving Spaghetti into any (“Bat”) Computer in the name of detective work.
Join TBC a fanboy podcast & friends for an in-depth round table Bat-discussion exploring the heroics, romanticism & complex character profile of DC Comics’ flagship property.
What will be revealed? That Batman really does sit home to wash his tights? The truth behind Schumacher’s “nipplegate”? Or that Calendar Man will get his own full featured film? Sit tight, get comfortable with some Bat-milk and cookies (yes, the same ones from Scooby Doo) and tune in for a great Bat-Time.
Think you’ve heard all that’s needed to be said about the sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens appropriately titled The Last Jedi? In this new installment, we finally got to hear Luke Skywalker speak after 3 decades of absence from the fanboy consciousness. We also pick up where we left off with our newly embraced trinity: Rey, Finn, Poe as well as with the abhorred First Order bunch led by Kylo Ren. Well, this is not going to go the way you think as the intrepid crew of TBC (a fanboy podcast) attempt to angle the deflector, punch the hyperdrive and be the spark that’ll light the fire perhaps only to exchange some finger lickin’ porg rotisserie recipes in the process.
What’s 6’4”, bearded, has a gnarly eyebrow scar and is married to Lisa Bonet? Only that which capsizes all of our manhoods combined here at TBC a fanboy podcast but prior to casting Jason Momoa in Aquaman, Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC epic, this fish talking King of the Seven Seas has endured a long and complex history. TBC a fanboy podcast deep dives (pun intended) again along “The Road to Justice”, profiling each member of The Justice League as portrayed cinematically on the big screen for the very first time. Additionally in discussion, Victor Stone AKA Cyborg, though traditionally a (Teen) Titan by affiliation, also make his cinematic debut as one of “The Six”. Join our TBC fanboys as they come together covering what may potentially be very exciting properties for the DC Cinematic Universe.

Created in the 40’s, Wonder Woman has evolved over the ages brandishing strength, beauty and feminism to many but not without controversy contained in the course of her history. DC’s archetype and surely GOAT female superhero has graced fans through the ages in comics, toys, TV, animation and finally a solo feature film directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster) with Gal Gadot (BvS, Fast & Furious) as Diana, Princess of Themyscira.
The crew of To Be Continued a fanboy podcast offer their Wonder Woman film review in this first installment of ROAD TO JUSTICE, inching its way closer to Warner Bros.' ambitious Justice League.
"All the world's waiting for you and the power you possess… Change their minds, and change the world."

“Joss Whedon keeps creating these zeitgeist-grabbing, fun, brilliant shows that then Fox — It’s like he hands them over to an angry punk that throws them against the wall and ruins them.” - Patton Oswalt
Without further ado, Here’s part 2 of TBC’s trip into the black that is Firefly/ Serenity. For the fans, there is always hope of revival, that somehow Joss Whedon’s space western crew will fly again. And yet, although cancelled prematurely by the executive at FOX, Firefly/ Serenity remains now and foreverfanboy legend.
He slices! He dices! He regenerates! But WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

IT'S A WRAP! Submitted for your approval, as our fearless podcasters come to conclusion with their final segment, a journey's end skimming down a trench toward a target area only two meters wide. Our TBC Fanboys approach to trilogy completion getting down to more Star Wars nostalgia, prequels, saga and anthology speculation... Many Bothans died to bring us this podcast episode. #iusetobullseyewompratsinmyt16backhome #stayontarget
Last when we left our podcast episode, turmoil has since engulfed the land. Hoping to resolve the matter, our TBC cast of characters engage in discussion concerning Star Wars sequels, toy fair, comic books and deadbeat Jedi. While the Congress of the Republic endlessly filibuster in committee chambers over intergalactic campaign finance reform, our fanboys secretly chuckle behind the Emperor’s back over his birth name… Sheev.
Somewhere in Park Slope, Brooklyn this may all be happening right now... From the team that brought you For The Iron Throne and These Things Write Themselves, a conversation unlike any other on your planet... A podcast discussion about a story about a boy, a girl and a universe... TBC gets into some serious drivel covering George Lucas' most influential "sprawling space saga about rebellion and romance... a spectacle light years ahead of it's time". Did we mention that it happens to be an "EPIC of heroes and villains and aliens from a thousand worlds... a billion years in the making?" Or did we just rip this entire description off of the original 1976 trailer? Why? Because we could hardly contain ourselves to fit it within one podcast episode. Part 1 of 3 #letthewookiewin
