In this episode:
Spurred mainly by our massive enjoyment of Wet Hot American Summer and its sequel Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, we chat about sequels and prequels that we enjoyed and what sequels we hope to see. In roundup: Aaron reviews The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Volume 1 and provides first impressions of La Granja; Evan talks about Chainmail Bikini, Super Sonico The Animation and Rocket League with Adam; Adam makes us sad with a proposed alternate ending to Friends.
