They talk about the graphic novel, it's adaptation into the movie Atomic Blonde, and the spy genre as a whole.

One batch. Two batch. Penny and dime. Marvel and Netflix are back and once again Scott and Mark Russell are teaming up to talk about the first MCU spinoff. Unless...does Agent Carter count? Anyway, they'll be discussing previous Punisher portrayals, the show's darker themes, and Ben Barnes pretty, pretty face.

It's finally here! DC's long awaited Justice League is out in cinemas. And it's up to Scott and David Molofsky to figure out, was it worth the wait? No. No it was not. From outstandingly bad CGI, rushed/non-existent character development, and a general atmosphere of "meh", it looks like there's not much for them to like. Except for Jason Momoa, they like him. Probably a bit too much.  Subscribe: iTunes | PodBean | Player.FM | RSS | Subscribe on Android Join the conversation in our Facebook Group.
