Thirty-four episodes clean and counting! Nick and Alastair kick off with talk about brief recent encounters with kid assassin comic Deadly Class, by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, and apt podcast-based crime novel Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski.
Then it’s time to get down to business with Ben Wheatley’s warehouse gun battle movie Free Fire (6:51), followed by a check back with highly acclaimed X-Men-related TV series Legion (20:15). Did it keep that weird quality up for the whole season? If you want to hear our first encounter with Legion, travel back in our mindscape to MFV 28.
Thirdly, it’s the first two issues of The Old Guard (36:31), a new comic about immortal soldiers by Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez.
Lastly, what did Nick think of classic movie Run Lola Run (46:50)? And if he’d seen it at a slightly different time, would his whole opinion change?
