It's Fall and that means the networks are rolling out the new shows. In part one of our Fall TV Prieview, our co-hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel are joined by Tegan Hendrickson and Nathan Laws to look at the good and the bad of what Hollywood has to offer. In this episode our team figures out the CW cancellation formula and Deanna specualtes on the first Fox show to go. Gary also reveals that he would watch a Zombie Shartopusnado movie, which leads Deanna to declare that Gary's what's wrong with TV.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by the Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.

Dragon Con 2014 has come and gone. And once more RevCast Co-host Gary Mitchel corralled some of our favorite people into doing a LIVE episode of the RevCast! Joining him for this special event are Michael Falkner, Sue Kisenwether, Jessa Phillips and around the half-way mark the one and only Tegan Hendrickson

This year, instead of just talking about the con, which they do spend a little time discussing, Gary picked a topic of discussion, the just recently aired first episode of Capaldi's run of Doctor Who, "Deep Breath"! Listen in as they talk all about the plot, the characters, what they liked (Capaldi's attack eyebrows), didn't like (how Jenny is treated this episode by Vastra); Sue's excellent observation of The Doctor as the Audience vs Clara as the Audience; cries of "MOFFAT!!!"; their thoughts on pandering to the fans; Sue & Gary agreeing on a theory about "Time of the Doctor" and how Capaldi should have appeared in it; their thoughts on all the modern companions; special guest voices; and how they feel about the future of the season.

It's September, and there is litterally NOTHING in the theaters for genre fans.  These slim pickings lead to some interesting recommnedations from our co-hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel and RevCast MVP Tegan Hendrickson. But never fear RevCast fans, it is not all knashing of teeth and whining. There is a discussion of Lord Grantham’s Ass and Tegan and Gary start naming the Starks as if they were Spice Girls. There is also a bankable idea about Expendables with ACTORS. So bankable, that Deanna volunteers for a special job on set to keep the costs down so the movie can get made.

Did you know that RevolutionSF co-founder Joe Crowe and RevCast co-host Gary Mitchel are in charge of the American Sci-Fi Classics track at DragonCon?  As part of this, they run a panel called Stump the Geeks. This panel involves ridiculous questions, questionable prizes and assaults with Hulk perfume. And Joe taped the 2013 edition and has provided it here for your listening pleasure. There is a Greatest American Hero signalong, speculation about Mansquito vs the taser and Jabba sings theme songs. You don't know what you are missing!

This part reveals why women watched action movies in the 80s and Deanna freaks Gary out.
