"Upside Fans"

They're your Glass Half Full type of fanboys who aim to always look on the Upside! Even when they dabble in the Dark Side, they pride themselves on staying in the light. But mostly...they just talk about geeky stuff they love. Movies, Comics, Games, TV and a bunch of stuff that's not Football, its all here! They also host a segment called "The Fandom Menace," where they take a not so loved property (mostly movies) and find the good in them. As you can imagine...some weeks are harder than others. It's a weekly "geekly" conversation galore that they hope you get a kick out of!

This newest entry into the MCU introduces audiences (and some eager hardcore fans) to a true cinematic iteration of the Sorcerer Supreme. Does another Marvel gamble pay off? Will they make us believe in magic? Do we accept Benedict Cumberbatch's American accent?
