We're less than a week out from the craziest Presidential election of anyone's lifetime.  One candidate thinks global warming is a hoax, while the other doesn't.  I guess if you don't mind your grandchildren growing old in a fiery hellscape then the decision should be fairly easy.  We touch on the crazy election, breakdown our West World theories, including the multiple timeline one.  We hit on Dr. Strange, the benefit (or not) of origin stories.  We also touch on Starship Troopers reboot, Channel Zero Candy Cove, Johnny Depp cast in Fantastic Beasts, plus the weekends box office.  The song at the end is Curtains "As we Proceed" from his "Killer" mixtape.

This is a more political heavy discussion.  The Republican National Convention is looking like a straight up circus or ish show.  Donald Trump continues to sell nothing but fear, fear, fear.  The Box office continues to tumble.  Stranger Things comes highly recommended by both Pundits.  Ted Cruz showed some balls.  Bernie?  Hmm.  Wikileaks droped some DNC e-mails that showed they were in favor of HRC...and Mark isn't happy at all!  We dig into this and a little more on this (shortened) episode of the Pop Pundits!

NON SPOILER REVIEW....Captain America Civil War is here, and both of the Pundits saw it on opening night.  So how does it stack up to other super hero fare?  We'll dive into our thoughts on this, and we steer clear of any major spoilers.  We also discuss how it relates, or compares to BVS since contextually these films share more than you might think.  After that Mark has to leave early so Cody's wife Peggy sits in to chat Civil War, Valentine's Day the movie, Robert Downy Jr's career, and the appeal of quirky romantic comedies.
