On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat out of chronological order.

Your favorite podcasting duo were forced to take a break because of an exceptionally hectic week, but they're back and have brought Robyn along with them for her expert opinions on all things nerdy. They start things off with a live unboxing of the latest DC Legion of Collectors box from Funko, themed after the upcoming Wonder Woman movie. Then Brandon chooses this week's subject for the ABC's of Geekdom segment and goes with a guy who thinks he's some kind of Jedi. Then they launch into some corrections, including Dragon Ball Z, tesseract, the human brain, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Spongebob Squarepants, Young Justice, Magik, Contra, Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo, James Bond, and Slurms Mackenzie.

After the break and picking up yet another special guest, they come back to talk about some trailers, including Valerian and the City of 1,000 Planets, The Mummy, War for the Planet of Apes, Cars 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Batman and Harley Quinn, Game of Thrones season 7, and Black Lightning. Then they discuss some news, including a musical based on King of Kong, a musical based on King Kong, the announcement of Top Gun 2, Doug Liman no longer directing Justice League Dark, Tom Holland cast as Young Nathan Drake for the upcoming Uncharted movie, a reboot of the Resident Evil movie franchise, Arrested Development season 5, the passing of Powers Boothe and Sir Roger Moore, Joss Whedon to direct the rest of the Justice League movie, and Tom Hardy playing Venom in Sony's Spider-Man universe. Then they go around the table and talk about some Hot Takes, including Love and Other Drugs, Split, Pokemon Sun and Moon, the Arms Global Test Punch, Alien Covenant, The Great British Bake Off, and Master of None.  With all of that out of the way, the group has a lengthy discussion about the film Memento (spoilers from around (1:46:06-2:11:12), which is hopefully slightly less confusing than the movie itself. Last but not least, they square off in an all-new Fan Fic Fights, this time arguing over who is the most proficient pedagogue.
