This episode: Bryn marvels at Inhumans. We're stoked for Awesome Mix Vol. 2. Rob Liefeld can't draw. Marshall revisits Deadpool. Josh sat through Zoolander 2. We like Tom Cruise (and Tom Crooze). There's more JJ mystery in 10 Cloverfield Lane. Everyone but Josh spoils the hell out of Firewatch from 59:48 to 1:21:00.
