Escape Into Fandom – Episode 90

Escape Into Fandom

With the Election Cycle in the US and a few bouts with being sick we understand that sometimes living in the real world sucks, but luckily for us we live in an age with unprecedented access to other worlds that we can escape into.  These worlds come in the form of Fandoms and tonight we are going to share with you what we do when we want to numb or block out the outside world.  Is it running away?  Probably, but sometimes you just need a great escape.

Random Fandom

This week’s Random Fandom was submitted by Joe Darowski from the Protagonist Podcast.  He brought back to our attention the nostalgia trip that was Disney Afternoon and Saturday Morning cartoons.  Parents used to use them as incentives and siblings would bargain with each other to get to see their favorite shows when they were airing, but Cable TV, Streaming Services, DVD’s and DVR’s has changed all of that and no one has to watch anything live anymore.

If anyone can find any of the Disney Afternoon shows streaming online let us know, until then We may have to buy the DVD’s from Amazon

Young Justice Season 3 is going to happen but all we know now is that Warner Brothers has a newsletter sign up on their website.  Both Jeff and Branden have given their email to the WB and not been spammed by them and so it should be safe to sign up for this too.

Hayao Miyazaki is coming out of retirement to do a final feature length film.  Studio Ghibli has not green lighted the project yet, but Miyazaki has told the press and begun storyboarding for a planned release during the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.  The ball is in your court Ghibli

The CW has added 4 more episodes to Legends of Tomorrow Season 2’s order bringing it up to 17.  This means the studio must be happy about what they are seeing.
