Flopcast episode 594! Okay, let’s wrap up our coverage of Dragon Con 2023! (Because come on, if this recap goes on much longer, we’ll have to include Dragon Con 2024…) Kevin and the Mayor of Chickentown (reporting from Maine in the middle of a hurricane) are here to run through

Flopcast 593: Dragon Con Review Part 2 – Stay Away From Aquaman

Flopcast episode 593! Our Dragon Con recap continues, and this time we’re just covering Saturday. While everyone else in Atlanta was out on the street for the big Dragon Con parade, Kevin was hiding in the American Sci-Fi Classics Track room for the ESO Network’s celebration of the 50th anniversary

Flopcast 592: Dragon Con Review Part 1 – The Duck Is Fine

Flopcast episode 592! We have apparently survived Dragon Con 2023, and it’s gonna take THREE episodes to review everything that happened at our favorite annual gathering of 70,000 nerds and/or geeks. This week we’re just covering Wednesday through Friday, including: The amazing costumes of Brandon the Shapeshifter, the muscovy ducks

Flopcast 591: Dragon Con Schedule Fun – Good Job, Everybody

Flopcast episode 591! It’s Dragon Con week! Alas, Kornflake cannot join us at Dragon Con, but let’s just pretend that she can! Kevin has prepared a hypothetical weekend of silly events for Kornflake, based on the actual Dragon Con schedule. Including: robot battles, coloring books and coffee, burlesque, the old

Flopcast 590: Everybody’s on Strike – Our Dragon Con Preview

Flopcast episode 590! It’s time for Dragon Con, so round up all your local weirdos and stick them on a bus to Atlanta! Kevin and the Mayor of Chickentown will be there, and we’re sharing our whole schedule with you. Come see the Mayor talk about Rocky Horror, Schmigadoon, and Barbie! (Did

Flopcast 589: Nightmare on 1989 Street

Flopcast episode 589! As we frantically prepare for Dragon Con 2023, we’re wrapping up our 10-episode look back at the 1980s with a visit to Dragon Con 1989! We weren’t actually there (probably too busy watching Batman for the nineteenth time), but we did scrape up some information about the third ever

Flopcast 588: 1988 Could Never Tear Us Apart

Flopcast episode 588! The vacationing Kornflake is flopped on a hammock somewhere, but the Mayor of Chickentown is here to celebrate the year 1988. After a quick look at some of the year’s least popular movies (Kevin and the Mayor each saw just one of them), we turn to music.

Flopcast 587: The Sad Robot French Fries of 1987

Flopcast episode 587! Go away, soft weak humans! It’s time for our annual robot-themed Top 4 ½ List! And it’s also time for our 1987-themed show! So once again we’ve turned to our pal Chris from Sci-Fi Explosion, because we knew Chris could come up with a magnificent list of

Flopcast 586: Pour Yourself an Icy Glass of 1986

Flopcast episode 586! Welcome back to 1986! (We need you for Hands Across America. Please go stand in the middle of Iowa for nine hours.) Kornflake has a goofy 1986 commercial in which the voice of God screams at you about drain cleaners. Then Kevin has a concert report on

Flopcast 585: 1985 – There’s a New Goonie in Town

Flopcast episode 585! As we cross the halfway point in our ten-part exploration of the 1980s, we’re randomly recasting the movies of 1985, and hopefully making them weirder. We might extract Chevy Chase from Fletch, for example, and drop him into the Kelly LeBrock role in Weird Science. That would free up

Flopcast 584: 1984 – No Others, Just Yothers

Flopcast episode 584! Our ten-episode trip through the 1980s continues, and we’re looking at some very short-lived sitcoms from 1984. Including: The Duck Factory (starring Jim Carrey and Dippy Duck), Dreams (with John Stamos, Jami Gertz, and breakdancing), E/R (not the medical drama with George Clooney, but the medical sitcom with George Clooney), It’s Your Move (with Jason

Flopcast 583: Never Tell an Angel That It’s 1983

Flopcast episode 583! This week we’re back in 1983! Kornflake shares a goofy 1983 commercial for Dial soap, while Kevin takes an absurdly quick look at the pop music of 1983. It was the year new wave conquered the Top 40, and we approved. (For more complete coverage of 1983
