It is the month that we geeks have been waiting years for.  It's December 2015 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released in theaters. But there is so much more to see.  Podcast Queen, Deanna Toxopeus is joined by RevNews co-host Tegan Hendrickson to discuss the December offerings, and believe it or not they do not spend the whole podcast talking about Star Wars.

Because there are other movies coming out in December.

Honest.

Manimal is out on DVD. 

We never thought we would type those words. 

 It's pretty much the greatest show from 1983 that contained a detective who transformed into any animal, but most of the time just a panther or a hawk. It lasted eight episodes. Then-pre-teen Joe Crowe was nonplussed.

Since then, this whole Manimal fandom thing has really gotten out of hand with him. You'll hear why and how.

At DragonCon on the American Sci-Fi Classics Track -- the live-action home of RevCast irregulars Gary, Tegan and a plethora of fine folks -- we hosted a Manimal panimal two years ago, way before we knew Manimal was coming out on DVD. 

Here it is in its entirety, because it is full of geeky love for quickly canceled sci-fi TV.  Joe and Gary were joined by dedicated fanimals Dr. Geek Scott Viguie and New York Times bestselling writer Debbie Viguie

That's right. Fans of Manimal packed a whole convention track room. Your move, people who take sci-fi too seriously.

Did the back half of Arrow season 3 live up to the end of season 2?  Erstwhile host Gary Mitchel is joined by Mark Finn, Nathan Laws and Deanna Toxopeus to discuss the ups and downs of the season. They discuss character development (or lack thereof) and the fact that everyone knows about Ollie's secret now. Except Iris, who must never know. 

So sit back and enjoy this episode of the RevNews. We promise this flashback is great, even wihout an Amell in a wig.

It's November, but we know you really want it to be December because STAR WARS comes out then.  But untl then, Hollywood has some pretty good things to offer you for your viewing pleasure.

 

Our Podcast Queen, Deanna Toxopeus is joined by Tegan Hendrickson to discuss the upcoming movies. Tegan keeps Deanna in line, while the both recoil as they realize the implications of Princess ButterCup’s daughter being old enough to be in a movie. There is also a theory about what Bond using his real names says about the British spy service.

It's fall and that brings a whole new set of TV shows on the tube for us to watch. RevCast hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel are joined by Tegan Hendrickson discuss the new genre shows on offer.  One of the shows even gets two seered thumbs up, while another features free-range precogs.

The crew also talk about Tegan hijacking the DragonCon American Sci-Fi Classics Track and that she knows everything about "nuts". They figure out how RevSF co-founder Joe Crowe can afford all that sweet Manimal merch.

Gotham may have returned, and appears to be swinging for the fences, but last season did not end on what we would call a high note. To go over the highs (Penguin!) and lows (Barbara!), RevNews host Gary Mitchel  got BatFans Christina Janke , Nathan Laws, and Mike Nelson to return from their look back at the first half of the season to see if their optimism for the show at the half-way mark was met. (SPOILER: Not so much.)

Listen in as they discuss which of them was able to even watch to the end of the season; how they break the show down by examining their feelings about each main character; how it entered too CW for CW territory with Leslie vs Barbara; the fact that schizophrenia just doesn't happen!; their love for Bullock & Alfred; their disappointment with the fall of Fish; the show's bad habit of sidelining characters; what they feel is main source of the series' problems; and Christina's lament that Constantine was canceled, yet, somehow, this show survives.

October!  The time of cooler tmperatures and pre-oscar bait movies. Hollywood has a whole new slate of movies, and it appears some of there are actually worth heading to the teater for. Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel are joined by Tegan Hendrickson to discuss the October 2015 movies. Along the way, Tegan proposes a theory about all good food coming on a stick.  Keanue Reeves and Eli Roth destroy Gary's interest in a horror movie.  Deanna calls "Air Hogs" "Air Force" and pronounces things in a Canadian way.
