After a week off for the 4th of July holiday, we’re back with a brand new episode of The Flickcast. And you thought we’d forgotten about you. Not likely.
On this week’s show Chris and Joe talk about a lot of different things, as usual. Some of these “things” include the recent Emmy nominations and the worst snubs, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the latest on Doctor Who, more on Guardians of the Galaxy and a bunch of other stuff.
Chris and Joe even make a bet on the opening weekend box office for Guardians. What did they think? Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out. Saw that coming, didn’t you?
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of director John Hillcoat’s Lawless and Joe’s pick of the wonderful, and sadly soon to be extinct, 35mm film.

As we did with ABC’s new shows earlier today and NBC’s show’s yesterday, we’ve got a preview of some of the new Fox shows for you as well. This time around the shows are more drama heavy but also feature a comedy and an animated show.
First up is the new drama Lonestar which features Jon Voight in a show described as “a modern-day Dallas” and “a sophisticated and provocative drama set against the sprawling backdrop of big Texas oil.” Mmm, could be interesting.
Next up is the new cop show Ride-Along from Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield. This drama follows the exploits of a veteran cop (Jason Clarke of Brotherhood) doing whatever he can to keep the streets clean. It also stars Jennifer Beals.
Moving along to the next show we’ve got a preview for the new comedy Running Wild which features Wil Arnett as a rich guy who’s wife, played by Kerri Russell, tries to keep him in line and do some good along the way. It was created by Arrested Development’s Mitchell Hurwitz so it’s definitely got a comedy pedigree.
Finally, the last preview for today is the new animated show Bob’s Burgers from the guy who brought you Dr. Katz. It focuses on a struggling family-run burger joint that seems to violate a great deal of health codes. Of all of these shows I think I’m most interested in Ride-Along.
Shawn Ryan created one of the best cop shows of all time with The Shield and he knows this world and the people in it. I expect great things from Ride-Along. The others? I guess we’ll see.
Check out all the previews after the jump.
