After years of thwarted attempts, Trevor has finally succeeded in watching Pacific Rim (2013). Somehow, he also watched Ready Player One by accident. We briefly discuss each of these (no spoilers), as well as a tiny bit of Black Panther followup.
We also discuss what representation means for Hufflepuffs, what Hufflepuff means for the world, and whether Buffy the Vampire Slayer can or should be revived on TV.
Perhaps most importantly, Matthew gets his completely spoiler-free thoughts about Infinity War on the record before we all see the movie. We haven’t even watched the trailers, so we really do mean spoiler free. We have no idea what we’re talking about.
War! huh What is it good for? In Wakanda, rhinos. Yes, we forgot to mention some things about Black Panther. The sun will never set on our Wakandan followup, but this is not a Part 3. In fact, it’s less than 40% of this episode, and we save it for the end.
This episode also covers An American Tail, a land where there are no sasquatches and the streets are paved with snow, and the future of sustainability in construction toys & coffee making. We manage to limit ourselves to two Star Wars-related mini-topics and only one non-Black Panther MCU digression: “Who am Groot?”
We did what we had to do… and kept talking about Black Panther for a second episode. Actually, we just kept talking, and then split it into two episodes later. This half of the conversation goes into characters, plot points, and overarching themes of the movie.
Shuri enough, our discussion of the latest MCU movie went long. This episode covers the first half of our conversation on Black Panther, along with important information about crocodiles, middle names, and Nokia’s product road map.
Are we living in the Darkest Possible Timeline? The signs are everywhere: Jumanji is a runaway box office success. Minions have almost completed their takeover of our dimension. Keurig has purchased Dr Pepper. But there are signs of hope.

Is Frosty who he says he is? Can Levar Burton read? What incredible risk did Matthew take as he rewatches the early MCU movies?
In this episode we discuss mystical creatures such as golems, hevisaurs, Elcor, murder whales, camelcorns, and colonels, followed by space exploration, books & reading, and what’s happening in video games. We wrap it up by revisiting the early MCU movies as we continue to prepare ourselves for Avengers: Infinity War.
