On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about who is Groot.

Alex and Brandon actually managed to record two episodes two weeks in a row, somehow. After a bad nickname and a rocky start, things pick up when Brandon chooses this week's subject for the ABC's of Geekdom segment, this week focusing on ye olde educational computer game. Next, they cover some corrections, including Syracuse, Garrus, Funko, Naboo, the Force Unleashed, West World, Wonder Twins, Iron Fist, Jurassic Park, Prometheus, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Alien vs. Predator, and the difference between watching and listening.

Upon returning from the break, the boys discuss some trailers from the past week, including Dunkirk, The Dark Tower, Defenders, and Injustice 2 DLC character reveals. Then they cover some news, including the cancellation of Alien 5 and the new inductees to the National Video Game Hall of Fame. After that, Alex and Brandon both give some hot takes about what they've been watching, including Archer, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Lucifer, Legion, X-Men: Apocalypse, King of Kong: a Fistful of Quarters, Justice League Dark, How to be a Latin Lover, and a full-on review of Teen Titans: the Judas Contract (spoilers from around 1:50:36-1:58:43). Then comes the main event; Alex and Brandon give their thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (spoilers from around 1:58:43-2:57:45). The first one was good, but did they like the sequel better? The only way to find out is to listen! Then, as is custom, they wrap up the show with a 2 v. 2 round of Fan Fic Fights between two pairs of loveable space criminals.

Last but not least, Alex announces his choice for the next community movie discussion and decided on Memento. This movie is trippy, so strap in for a crazy ride and then let us know what you thought before we talk about it in two weeks.
