This one is a Barn Burner folks. get enthralled on who is a better crooner: Crosby, Como, or Sinatra, and whether Barbara Streisand belongs in that group. Enjoy as the boys Discuss Love Story and Saturday night Fever. Is Funny Girl a Movie that Transcends Sexual Orientation. If you don’t listen you will never know the true answers. Kick ass is spoken about in earnest now that two members of the show have seen it, and the deficiencies of Mark Millar as a writer are proven again and again. The Preacher Vs. The Boys (and how many times can TJ destroy his own argument by mistakenly calling Preacher The Boys). TJ has put on his Catholic school girl skirt and his hair in pig tails as he gets more into the world of Manga, this time with Deathnote Vol. 1. Mike and Kevin decide which run of Power Girl is better and the almost come to blows (well not really it is actually very cordial and dare i say delightful).
