And we’re back once again with an all-new episode of The Flickcast. Five weeks in a row! It’s a Christmas miracle!
On this week’s episode Chris and Joe discuss a bunch of new and recurring topics. Some of these include Justin Lin taking over the Star Trek movie franchise, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Idris Elba as James Bond (maybe), their favorite Christmas movies and TV shows and a whole lot more.
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of the movie American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper and directed by Clint Eastwood and Joe’s pick of the movie Predestination starring Ethan Hawke, based on Robert A. Heinlein’s story All You Zombies.
As always, if you have comments, questions, critiques, offers of sponsorship, or whatever, feel free to hit us up in the comments, on Twitter, at Facebook, Google+ or via email.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

You have to like the way CBS takes care of business. They don’t give out info about what series they are renewing in little bits, they just pretty much let it all out at once. That’s good, especially for those of us who don’t like to wait.
So, with that in mind, the network announced renewals for most of its current series for next season, with two big exceptions: Criminal Minds and Vegas. Criminal Minds is in the middle of cast negotiations so nothing on that yet and Vegas hasn’t done that well in the ratings so CBS is going to try it out on Friday nights later this year.
However, lots of other shows got the green light for a new season. Among the list are Elementary, The Good Wife, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, NCIS: LA, Person Of Interest, The Mentalist, Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods. The shows join the list of others already renewed including The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, NCIS and CSI.
Also picked up for next season are shows we care less about such as The Amazing Race, Survivor and Undercover Boss, 60 Minutes and 48 Hours. So yeah, that’s a lot of shows.
Glad to see Elementary will be back for another season. That show is starting to grow on us, as are guilty pleasures Hawaii Five-0, NCIS and yes, even 2 Broke Girls — but mostly for Kat Dennings. Hey, can you blame us?
