MILD SPOILER WARNING: Defenders
We are now part of The ESO Network!
While Chris works on his Joker impersonation, Alex and Dave come to terms with their daughters advancing to college and high school and we make our best efforts to keep the train on the rails. We almost succeed. Almost. NBC seems to think reviving Miami Vice and The Munsters is a good idea. Chris tells the story of Richard Horvitz asking him for directions to the food court, and we discuss a lot things in between.
