63. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (S3.11-22)

We’re running. Very Fast. Away.

Just like real life, it is a cavalcade of difficult topics for Joshua and Lani discuss. Slavery, both fictional and otherwise, the misuse of police powers, and more are mixed into the usual, and enjoyable, spy and relationship shenanigans.

Until this exact moment, we thought you were Build-A-Bear

At last! The ending of one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time! Lani and Joshua talk about the end to the Thanos Saga as well as the mixed bag of endings some of our original Avengers received. Joshua also goes back to the DC Universe of the mid 1990s to try and explain the time travel in this movie. (Spoiler: it isn’t really time travel.)

We’re not looking for forgiveness and we’re way past asking permission.

One honey cone for the bear, one dragonfly ripple for the frog. Don’t get ‘em mixed up.
