Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Superman 2. The rebellious Kryptonians Zod (Terence Stamp), Non (Jack O'Halloran), and Ursa (Sarah Douglas) have broken free from the Phantom Zone to cause chaos on Earth. Can Superman (Christopher Reeve) stop them in time? Featuring more action than the original, Superman 2 is a fan favorite of the series. To complicate things, there are multiple cuts since director Richard Donner was replaced by Richard Lester part way through production. Superman 2 lacks the heart of the original, but has a great deal more spectacle.
Thrasher enjoyed the documentary Too Funny To Fail about the all too brief Dana Carvey Show. He also caught up with Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, which improves in its second half.
Mat finished the single player campaign and DLC for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and found it to be kind of tedious with a lot of uninspiring missions involving guarding characters from a horde of enemies. He also watched Kingsman: The Golden Circle and found it amusing yet not as funny as the original.
