The Fly
Episode Studies
     Like us on Facebook, where you'll see notifications every time a new study or review is posted on PopApostle!

This is the home of PopApostle's studies of The Fly, the 1986 classic science-fiction horror film, its sequel and comic book continuation by IDW Publishing. I will be presenting my studies relating to each, such as commentary on the science described, sound bits of memorable dialog, screen grabs and my own musings. I'll be presenting them in the chronological order in which each story takes place in-universe.


Although there are no television "episodes" in the Fly canon, I am continuing to use the term "episode" as I have elsewhere on PopApostle, as a separable piece in the continuous narrative of a larger story.
