On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about their bodies being ready.

The weather is heating up for summer, and so is Alex and Brandon's podcast game, which was already straight fire. They take things to the next level by bringing on another surprise guest this week, the often-referenced Armando. After introducing him and talking about their weeks, Alex makes his choice for the ABC's of Geekdom segment, and a most meme-worthy subject at that. After that, they move on to some corrections, including Star Wars, Dragonball Z, Zealand and New Zealand, James Bond, Slurms Mackenzie, Rocky IV, Batman the Animated Series, Top Gun, Uncharted, Iain Glen, Love and Other Drugs, Memento, insulin overdoses, and Arthur.

After the break, they resume the conversation with some trailer talk, including Logan Lucky, Preacher season 2, Star Trek Discovery, The Gifted, Castlevania, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2, and Sonic Forces. Then they keep on trucking by breaking down some news, including a name and director announcement for the Black Cat and Silver Sable movie, Arnold Schwarzenneger returning for the next Terminator movie, a new Netflix series based on the Witcher novels, Angela Basset playing the new CIA director in the next Mission: Impossible movie, several casting announcements for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Jimmy Kimmel hosting the 2018 Oscars, Hailee Steinfeld starring in the Bumblebee movie, Blu Hunt and Charlie Heston cast in the New Mutants movie, Patty Jenkins returning to direct Wonder Woman 2, and plans for an upcoming Sin City tv series. Then they discuss a few Hot Takes, including The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Irreversible, The Heartbreak Kid, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, CinemaSins, Buzzfeed Unsolved, Wonder Woman, and Glee. With all of that covered, the boys look towards the future to contemplate the summer convention season and some of their favorite things about cons. Then they finish the show string with an all-new episode of Fan Fic Fights, this time in a three-way battle of four-armed foes.

Last but not least, Brandon announced his choice for the next community discussion movie and landed on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. We'll be discussing that in extremely lengthy detail in just 2 weeks, so make sure you watch it and let us know what you thought!
