In which our heroes go completely off script to talk about Nier Automata, Thor Ragnarok and Star Wars… which wasn’t what we meant to talk about at all.
In which our heroes look at the wealth of movie trailers coming out before remembering there was something they wanted to talk about.
Iron Fist, and how it’s shit.
In which our heroes look over the first two years of Rick and Morty. Re-experience all the laughs and trauma with us.
(If parts of the discussion, especially towards the end, give the impression that this episode is coming out really, really late? Blame Mass Effect Andromeda and Nier Automata)
In which our heroes discuss the realm of fan created works, kind of forgetting that the podcast itself is one. Learn about the hosts’ shady fan-fiction writing pasts.
In which our heroes, tired and weary, manage to pull their less-prepared-than-usual selves together to discuss some things they’ve been watching and playing before diving a little deeper into Nintendo’s latest.
In which our heroes talk, at length, about a mysterious wizard who travels in time and space.
In which our heroes talk about streaming TV. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, CBS, Hulu, et al.

Luke Cage looking amazing:
Ralph McQuarrie’s Enterprise:
Star Trek Discovery’s Ship Design:
