In what is one of our more bittersweet episodes, we give Alex the send off he deserves. Before the show recorded, we fed him a hearty meal to slow him down and then sat him down to watch the Tommy Wiseau masterpiece, The Room. If you haven’t seen this film, you are probably better for it. That said, go grab a few friends and give it a try. It is legitimately awful but it is definitely an experience. As you can imagine, Alex was very damaged after having watched this film and the subsequent discussion did nothing to alleviate the pain. We send him to SoCal a well broken man!
 
Of course the guys also had their weekly streaming picks. In lieu of streaming, Alex decided to prepare for the wretchedness of The Room by catching The Return of the King in the local theater. Not much to say about this one, other than watching the directors cut of this in the theater means he probably had a catheter in just hours before recording…
 
Pete takes in the not-quite-documentary Wu-Tang: An American Saga on Hulu. He loved it, so that gives you a pretty good idea what level of interest the rest of the group has… In his defense, its sitting at 75% on Rotten Tomatoes so you might be ok checking this one out.
 
This week, Kevin throws the rules in the trash. First, he sort of follows the rules by starting the series The Widow on Amazon Prime. After just one episode, the review is pretty middling, but what can you expect when the fool cant follow directions. His first foray into dumping the rules has him watching the first episode of The I-Land on Netflix. This meets with horrendous reviews, as so many of Kevin’s Sci-Fi reviews do. Finally, he kicks the dumpster fire he’s created over and jumps ship to YouTube, where he takes in Retro Replay with Nolan North and Troy Baker. He finally gives a stellar review, but what kind of idiot has to got that far for fun?
 
Lastly, Opie hits up Netflix for Bill Burr’s latest stand up special, Paper Tigers. With a couple of the guys having seen it, there is a little discussion but the consensus is that this is a quality show and well worth a watch!
 
Rumor has it next week may be an off week, but keep your eyes open for any curveballs we may or may not throw at you!
