Big they watched! Big they talked! Big their podcast!
A new episode of Hellbent for Letterbox dropped this week, in which Pax and I discuss the 1958 epic, The Big Country, starring Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, Jean Simmons, Chuck Connors, and Sam the Snowman. Also: Pax talks about the TV shows Gunsmoke, Have Gun Will Travel, and The Wild Wild West, while Michael mentions Tumbleweeds (1925) and Jesse James (1939). Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck may come up as well.
Oh, and hey! Hellbent for Letterbox has a brand-spankin'-new website, too! I'm gonna keep the Tumblr going as a place to celebrate Westerns with all kinds of random stuff, but now we also have a manageable repository to archive all the episodes.
Meanwhile, over at Starmageddon, we're a little behind the Star Wars news cycle, but still plenty enthusiastic about the head-canon of Star Wars Rebels' Dave Filoni. And Ron describes his recent trip to Disneyland and experiencing Season of the Force.
We recorded a new episode this week where we talk about the Rogue One trailer and lots of Star Trek stuff, so that should drop soon. too. I'll let you know.
