The Only Fancast
About the Show
Every Tuesday, husband-and-wife duo Kat & Kyle Morck give the fancast treatment to a different television show. A television show that they've never seen before, and know nothing about. Shondaland? Campy sci-fi? K-drama? Wings? As long as we haven't seen it before, we'll fancast the hell out of it. It's like when you turn on a mid-season episode of a show you know nothing about and just revel in your own bafflement.

September 7th, 2017 | 41 mins 20 secs
Kat thought it would be good to title this week's episode "Quality Over Quantico," but Kyle's episode title - a reference to a 1998 made-for-TV movie - won out instead. Sometimes there's just no right answer! Sometimes we are all of us losers! Welcome to Quantico!

Episode 20: Teens: Do They Read? Can They Read? An Investigation - The Only Teen Literature Fancast
August 3rd, 2017 | 59 mins
This week, we were initiated into the divine secrets of the YA YA sisterhood. Get it? Because YA stands for young adult, and we read part of a young adult novel, but then also what I said up there is the name of a movie. You get it. Anyway, we read some chapters from Apprentice: Book 2 of the Black Mage series. Podcasts about books are coming into vogue and we really wanted to get in there and chomp that flavor. I think we did A PRETTY GOOD JOB.

Episode 16: Early Edition, Hot and Fresh Out the Kitchen - The Only Early Edition Fancast
June 22nd, 2017 | 42 mins 33 secs
In an age of digital media, it's important to remember the role that serious journalism plays in a free society. Print is dying, and with it, the bastions of creditable reporting are slowly decaying into obscurity. The influence of an ethical Fourth Estate provides essential checks and balances against an increasingly authoritarian government. As funding dries up and unscrupulous internet reporting flourishes, these institutions diminish in power. It's one of the great crises of our age. Anyway, this show is about Kyle Chandler getting newspapers from a magical cat!

June 15th, 2017 | 57 mins 38 secs
Teen Wolf can't be tied down by your rules. Teen Wolf doesn't need to listen to teachers or parents because he's a rebel. Teen Wolf is gonna smoke weed under a bridge with his pack, Mom, and there's nothing you can do to stop him. The olds just don't get it, but we here at The Only Fancast do. Teens just wanna make dank memes, get followers on snapchat, and fight ancient demonic evils that threaten to engulf their home towns and jeopardize their lacrosse scholarships. We see you, Teen Wolf. And we understand.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is here to heal America. It's Ballers.
Episode 13: Jughead, Shoulders, Knees & Toes (Knees & Toes) - The Only Riverdale Fancast
June 1st, 2017 | 1 hr 1 min
There's a new show on the CW, and wouldn't you know it, it's based on the adventures of everyone's favorite redheaded teen scamp, Archie Andrews! That's right, this icon of wholesome American teenhood is finally hitting the small screen. And don't we all need a dose of that innocent, hygienic optimism that Archie Comics is famous for? It's such a relief to know, in these troubled times, that not everything has to be all joyless and morbid. Sometimes a show can just be pure. Guileless. It's bubblegum and baseball games. Cherry-red Chevrolets. Drive-in movies. Nuclear families. We will all stay young forever and we'll never, ever die. Come with us down to the chock'lit shop, because it's time for Riverdale.
