Emergency Fill-In Episode

Hello, and welcome to episode 243.5 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

Due to a sudden hoarseness caused by screaming guest vocals on notable Evanescence songs a little too much, Steve and Andy find themselves hamstrung by the dreaded deadline doom, and have to resort to diving into their Patreon archives, released the first two installments of Steve & Andy vs The Fantastic Four (Cartoons). In this Patreon-only extra podcast, we provide episode commentaries for the various Fantastic Four cartoons. For this episode, it's the first two episodes of the 1967 Fantastic Four series - Menace Of The Mole Men, and Diablo. As well as this, Steve chats about his experiences hosting comics panels at the recent London Film and Comic Con, particularly those featuring future Fantastic Four writer Marv Wolfman.

Hello, and welcome to episode 139 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

It's our final special episode, and to celebrate the imminent release of the new Fantastic Four movie we're taking a look back to the first, unreleased Fantastic Four movie. Made on a shoestring budget and in less time than it took to edit this episode, the Roger Corman-produced Fantastic Four movie is a masterpiece of rights-retaining movie making. Featuring Indiana Jones' father, a pre-teen vampire, the least convincingly-animated Human Torch ever seen, and the most convincing glove acting ever seen.

We're watching the film on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHlBsLQ4BQs) and for extra hilarity, activate the automatic subtitling. We did, and the results are certainly memorable!

NOW It's Time For A Move Commentary!

Greetings from the Olympic Park in Stratford, London! Steve is away helping people with mobility issues to move around the park, sneaking into events, and meeting Oscar Pistorius. Andrew's enjoying the last dregs of his holiday. Between us, we've had minimal editing time, so we thought we'd take a different tack with this week's show. Instead of working through a couple of issues of Fantastic Four and Strange Tales, we thought we'd sit down and watch Fantastic Four (2005), and record a commentary.

Join us as we journey through the team's first (released) cinematic outing and see how we feel about the film seven years after its release. We also take a brief moment to evaluate the upcoming Marvel NOW (not a) reboot of the Fantastic Four titles.

No emails or trailers this time around, but we'll be devoting a bit of time on the next episode to catch up on our mailbag, so do send your comments and thoughts on the show, the comics, or even the film to fantastic4podcast@gmail.com
