SPOILER ALERTS AHEAD —

In this episode, the boys fire off a couple rounds at Joss Whedon. Well… not Joss Whedon really, more Joss Whedon’s work. Well… not ALL of his work, really, because they liked Avengers alright, but in his other stuff they don’t much care for his characters… or his character interactions… or his plots… so, yeah, not a good episode for Joss Whedon. But hey, Whedon is a wealthy Geek God while the boys are just second-rate reviewers on a backwater podcast, so we reckon Joss will walk away from it OK. BUT TAKE CAUTION IF YOU DON’T WISH TO HEAR SPOILERS REGARDING: King Kong (1933, 1976, 2005), Gojira (1954), Almost Human, Dracula, Sleepy Hollow, Thor: The Dark World, or Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
