SLC Fanboys Adam Thomas, Andy Farnsworth and Tysen Webb are all ready for the summer movie season of 2017, which kicks off with GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2 on May 5th.

Which one are you most looking forward to?

They rundown the list of sure-to-be-blockbusters, like GUARDIANS, WONDER WOMAN, TRANSFORMERS, DESPICABLE ME 3, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING; and all the rest like KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD, the latest PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movie, CARS 3, ALIEN: COVENANT, BAYWATCH, THE MUMMY, DUNKIRK, THE DARK TOWER and even THE EMOJI MOVIE (where you'll never guess which emoji Sir Patrick Stewart is going to voice!)

KSL NewsRadio's Jay McFarland joins Andy Farnsworth, Tysen Webb and Adam Thomas to talk about his new serialized mystery podcast "HOSTS OF EDEN"--available now on the KSL Newsradio smartphone app as well as through iTunes and Google Play Music.

The podcast will be a total of 11 chapters and tells the fictional story of Jonny, a schizophrenic patient in a mental health hospital and one of whose personalities claims to be the President of the United States.  To say much more would spoil the story, which is full of surprises, suspense and sci-fi.

Jay, who not only wrote but also performs the spoken word on the podcast, talks about where this story comes from, why he did it, explains why it's narrative style is different than you're used to hearing and even why you shouldn't ignore the cover art!

Jay can be heard daily from 12:30-3pm on the "JayMac News Show" on KSL NewsRadio 102.7FM & 1160AM in Salt Lake City.

Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 gave us pretty much everything we wanted: A poster, pictures and eventually a new trailer for The Last Jedi, all kinds of information on season 4 of Rebels, a tribute to Carrie Fisher, the first information about "Forces of Destiny", a new animated series that will feature the women of the Star Wars Universe. We also found out more about the video game Battlefront II, new books, and a huge panel celebrating 40 YEARS OF STAR WARS including the maker himself, George Lucas, the first appearance at a celebration by Harrison Ford, and a live performance from John Williams.

This episode, we re-live many of the big moments from SWCO, especially the panel for THE LAST JEDI, and hear some of the best lines, dissect the morsels of information we were given from Daisy Ridley, Rian Johnson, BB8 and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.

The official Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser is FINALLY here! We've waited months ever since the official poster came out and now we get what we've been waiting for, or do we?

Adam Thomas, Andy Farnsworth and Tysen Webb all come together to go over what is shown, what is not shown and how the teaser left us feeling afterwards. Including, what does it mean the Jedi are set to end? How 'The Force Awakens' is a significant clue into 'The Last Jedi' and why is there red debris coming up from the Salt Flats?!

With a majority of the cast coming back from 'The Force Awakens', we can clearly see that Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Luke (Mark Hamill) are all going to join us on what is looking like one of the darkest Star Wars films yet.

Andy Farnsworth and Tysen Webb are joined once again by guest Fanboy host Aaron Zundel to give a SPOILER-FREE review of THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, the latest entry into the multi-billion dollar Universal movie franchise.

What a film series! It's managed to successfully go from some street racing thieves jacking DVD players to an almost superhuman team of spies/secret agents/Impossible Mission Force over the course of 8 movies and 15+ years.

Andy is a latecomer to the Fast and Furious party, only having watched the previous 4 FF movies for the first time in the days leading up to Fast 8, but they hooked him hard.  Aaron liked F8 even more than Furious 7.

This time, why has Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) joined forces with the mysterious Cipher (Charlize Theron)?  How can his family/team of Letty Ortiz, Roman Pearce, Tej, Ramsey, Mr. Nobody and Luke Hobbs (Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell and Dwayne The Rock Johnson) possibly go up against, let alone STOP, their leader and friend?  Will they have to turn to their former enemy, Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) for help?

WARNING: Podcast contains SPOILERS for Season 7 of THE WALKING DEAD

Tysen Webb and Andy Farnsworth are joined by KSL co-workers and guest Fangirls Sandy Collins and Sheryl Worsley to talk about Season 7 of THE WALKING DEAD--a frustrating one for them that struggled to keep their interest (and apparently other people's as well--based on the show's ratings).

Farewell Sasha (off to Star Trek!)  What was the most surprising moment of the season?  Why is Negan still alive? How should he meet his final end? Has Rick finally returned to his old self?  What is with the collective?  Will we get to see the war in Season 8?

Apr 7, 2017

The SLC Fanboys are talking today about the recent casting news for Star Trek Discovery: Namely that Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha from The Walking Dead) will play First Officer and lead character Michael Burnham on the U.S.S. Discovery; and that we'll get to see TOS character Harry Mudd played by none other than The Office's Rainn Wilson. Plus "30 Rock" sidekick Jonathan (Maulik Pancholy) will be the ship's doctor.

They also revisit Rogue One - A Star Wars Story now that the movie is available on disc and digital.  Do their positive impressions still hold up after time and multiple viewings?  Adam wants to know why doesn't Admiral Raddus have his own movie announced yet?  Plus, what if you found Darth Vader's body on the floor of the ILM Creature Shop?
