Episode Notes

It’s a loose, fun, freewheelin’ grab-bag style episode on the show this week, as we talk about a whole host of recent movies, games, and TV shows. Jonathan reviews Ava DuVernay’s very good (and very undervalued) A Wrinkle in Time and the mostly disappointing Tomb Raider adaptation, which leads to a great discussion about the 25-year-history of video game adaptations failing spectacularly in Hollywood. Sean reviews the new season of The X-Files after its recent finale and talks about the outstanding final run of Dragon Ball Super. And finally, we review several recent video games, including Sean’s thoughts on Burnout Paradise Remastered and Jonathan’s first impressions of Detective Pikachu and overall thoughts on Kirby Star Allies. It’s a jam-packed episode full of fun topics that was a blast to record, and we think you’ll feel the same.
