This week, the cast is light due to holiday festivities and illness, so Brant and Chris chat for a while.

First, they talk about Thanksgiving, and some random chit-chat.

Then, it’s on to the news, talking the Jurassic World and Star Wars VII trailers, sequel news, Convergence week 3, and more.

For Topic Time, they discuss a list of the Top 15 Lamest Superheroes in Comics (aka Biggest Turkeys), which they have some issues with.

To close out the show, they go to announcements before sidetracking into some wrestling discussion as the show comes to an end.
