Episode 64: 'Kung Fury', Etc.

Welcome back, to a thing! Shorter episode this week, due to some minor scheduling conflicts. But that just means the guys get to talk about whatever the <ba-ding!> they want! While Jon mumbles about the state of comic books, Joel reviews two rather exciting films: Matthew Vaughn's 'Kingsman: The Secret Service', and the Kickstarter-funded, Internet-only, eighties-throwback, 'Kung Fury'. Action! Living passion!

Arcade bars? Action figures? Dickens? Petitions? Addiction? Sports news?! Enjoy this episode of 'Talk and Trivia' with ABSOLUTELY NO ADS.

Oh happy day.
