Episode 108.  The boys are back and so is Deadpool! In this episode Corwin reveals he has shaved his head to cope with barber shops being closed and then sets a certain eerie song as his alarm tone. Meanwhile Scott talks about Taco Bell’s menu change, and then asks Corwin’s son for hair tips. In a special segment, Scott writes an essay to Rob Liefeld addressing Rob’s recent remarks about Disney and Deadpool. At some point they talk about Deadpool #5 which was released after the comic industry started back up again. In Past-o-Vision they wrap up the Blood of Apocalypse Prequel in Cable & Deadpool #27. In Get in the Review, Neon Genesis Evangelion episode 9 & 10 are reviewed. Re: Zero episodes 26 & 27 are also briefly talked about.
