Episode CIII - The Finale (Top 10 Office Episodes)

After 102 episodes, our journey has come to an end. There may still be a couple of "post credits" episodes along the way (looking at you The Rise of Skywalker), but we want to end this podcast by talking about our favorite show, The Office. Over 9 seasons this show made us laugh, cry, cringe, and everything in between so what better way close this podcast than to talk about the show that we quoted and referenced more than any other. Listen in as we talk all things The Office as well as what the best movie theater snack, streaming wars, menschiest of Honorable Mensches, and end as always with our content of the week. Enjoy!

So which one is the newest entry in The Fast & The Furious franchise? Listen in as we review Hobbs & Shaw but before we get to that we talk the Summer Box Office Bet, nominated the 25th Class of Honorable Mensches, and talk a couple of new trailers.

Episode CII - Hobbs & Shaw

Episode CI - The Lion King

Disney's live-action/computer animated remake of The Lion King has all of the right ingredients for a hit: an established and talented director, one of the most amazing voice casts ever put together, and some of the best computer generated imagery ever seen. So why did this film leave a bad taste in our mouths when the credits rolled? Listen in to hear as Jake and Cameron review the 2019 remake as well as talk all things Comic Con 2019.

Listen in as we breakdown the highs and lows of the season as well as the trailers for IT: Chapter 2, Top Gun: Maverick, and Cats. Yes, Cats. Enjoy!

With Spider-man: Far From Home being the final film of Phase 3 of the MCU, it has a lot to deal with between telling its own story while also wrapping up the franchise post Avengers: Endgame. Listen in as Jake and Trevor breakdown whether this film continues the streak of great Spider-man films after both Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse as well as the new trailer for the live action remake of Mulan and how far each are into Stranger Things 3 so far.
