Episode 55: Stop Acting Like It’s the End of the World

About This Episode

The Screeners are down a host for this episode—Josh mentioned something about packing all his earthly belongings, but we’re honestly a bit worried that’s just a euphemism. Please do come back someday, Josh; we miss the lack of substance you bring to the show.

Anyway, in honor of this episode’s main event, the remaining Screeners start out the show by talking about their top three third installments in a trilogy.. See, Apocalypse is either the third movie since the last X-Men reboot, or the third third X-Men movie (yes, that’s nine in all for those of you playing along at home...how many more can they make?). Either way, Chad promised us this would make sense, and we’re just going to take him at his word. That usually works out.

Back to the Backstories

OK, main event time. Like we said, there have been a lot of X-Men movies, but you know what there are even more of? X-Men characters. X-Men: Apocalypse alone must introduce 20 of them...we lost count somewhere after the guy with the tail. We can’t say any more than that, because once we start making jokes about how the cast has all the makings of a fantastic Blue Man Group tribute band, we’re liable to spoil something. You’ll just have to listen to find out whether Melody and Daniel loved this movie as much as you’d expect them to.

And that’s one more superhero movie episode in the books! As always, join us over on Facebook to let us know what you thought and what you’d like to hear more about next time.
