Fixing Fandom

Fixing Fandom


Jeff and Darren have both read Devin Faraci's controversial essay 'Is Fandom Broken?' Jeff and Darren have also both been fans of things – and they've both run afoul of the rage-cage that is internet fandom. On this week's episode, they try to sort through the big questions about how the internet has changed the world of geekery. Have things gotten better? (Yes.) Have they gotten worse? (Also yes.) Please rate us on iTunes and leave us a review! We’d love to hear from you. Thanks for listening, and don’t forget to come back each week for a new episode.

Jeff and Darren talk about AMC's new supernatural existential thriller-horror-comedy 'Preacher' and how it relates to the brilliant (but problematic?) comic book series. Please rate us on iTunes and leave a review! We’d love to hear from you. Thanks for listening, and don’t forget to come back each week for a new episode.

Jeff has seen 'Batman v Superman' and has theories about the DC Extended Universe. Darren has seen 'Batman v Superman' and doesn't know whether to laugh or cry.
Jeff Jensen has seen half of 'Daredevil' season 2! Darren Franich has thoughts on '10 Cloverfield Lane'! What does 'Beneath the Planet of the Apes' have to do with all this? Listen and find out!
Just in time for EW's 'Batman v Superman' cover story, Jeff and Darren look back on their favorite Batman and Superman movies. 'Batman Returns' or 'The Dark Knight'? Goofy Superman or Emo Superman?

We saw Deadpool!


Jeff and Darren talk Ryan Reynolds' anti-superhero movie, with some help from Entertainment Weekly TV reporter Natalie Abrams.

Part one of a two-parter about 'Legends of Tomorrow,' the Berlanti universe, and the whole history of superheroes on television!
Jeff and Darren are back to talk about the return of 'The X-Files.' First, though, let's talk about our favorite episodes from the original run.
Jeff and Darren decide to feel optimistic and talk about how NBC's 2015 'Heroes' reboot might not be the worst idea ever. Then they dive deep into the crazy and wondrous 'True Detective,' putting forward some possible and impossible theories for the HBO anthology-mystery's first season finale.
Jeff and Darren talk about the frustrating conclusion to the latest season of the British series 'Sherlock,' with extended comparisons to last summer's 'Man of Steel.' Then it's time for a look ahead at the movies (like Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar') and TV shows (like Guilermo Del Toro's 'The Strain') that they're excited to see this year.
Darren and guest-host Keith Staskiewicz talk about the new hit Adult Swim show 'Rick and Morty' and the very-well-established hit Cartoon Network show 'Adventure Time.' There is a brief but important tangent into the history of Adult Swim, during which they discuss the best show you've never heard of: 'Moral Orel.'
Jeff and Darren take a look at the surprisingly not-terrible, actually-quite-good Fox show about the Headless Horseman and Ichabod Crane, which just finished its first season. Then it's a deep dive into the rebooted 'Community,' complete with a list of their favorite episodes!
