Fanboy Comics to Launch ‘Quality Time with Family Ties’ Podcast

LOS ANGELES, CA – March 12, 2015 – Fanboy Comics (FBC) is proud to announce the latest addition to its podcast lineup with Quality Time with Family Ties!  

With its first episode scheduled to premiere on Thursday, March 12, 2015, Quality Time with Family Ties (QTWFT) will be a weekly podcast in which three guys watch and review Family Ties – the ‘80s sitcom that made Michael J. Fox a star.  Led by co-hosts Scott Jones, Paul Pakler, and Corey Pepper, each 45-minute podcast will break down a Family Ties episode and its relevance to the period during which it aired, whether the co-hosts were convinced by the political musings of Alex P. Keaton to become a Republican or Democrat, and more.

“I love Michael J. Fox,” says showrunner and co-host Paul Pakler.  “One day, while I was sitting alone in my room on Christmas Day, Scott [Jones] called me and said, ‘Let’s do a podcast reviewing Family Ties.’  I said, ‘Yes.  I will join you in a podcast reviewing Family Ties.  I will now email Corey [Pepper].’  And, I did.  And, he responded with an email that read, ‘Yes.  I hated Family Ties when it was on, and I’ll probably hate it now, but I will join you and Scott in a podcast reviewing Family Ties.’  That’s the power of love, right there.”

The first episode of QTWFT will be released today on the Fanboy Comics website and on iTunes.  Subsequent episodes will air every Thursday.
