Following on from last episode, where they asked a gaming YouTuber about a film, this time, Nick and Alastair ask two TV/movie podcasters (themselves) about a film based on a game – Pokémon: Detective Pikachu!

And then they sniff out the secrets of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu (9:57). Alastair grew up gotta catching them all, Nick is slightly too old – will this affect their enjoyment? In either direction? Could this be the best video game adaptation?
And further to that, the follow-up question: what about all the others? How do we make better video game movies? (29:03)
