Season 2 of Battlecast is over... Comic-Con is over... equally miserable facts of life... BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! The second penta-annual Futurama Space-TWO-cuLRRR is here with all four of us sclum-bags battling for our right to remind everyone about having won for a few weeks. Dust off your brain-slug and fasten your Finglongers, it's gonna be a wild ride.

We're not going to lie and say that this is a good episode. We will, however, lie and say that it's a decent episode.

 

Dan, Andy, and Dave tool around Comic Con forcing cosplayers to fight each other. Also a guy playing drums on a streetlight gave Dan a few shots of the Fireball in his pants. Also we saw Donal Logue. Also Andy can't speak English.

 

Thanks to Jeff Rector, San Diego's Zombee, and The Pod Brother for chatting with us.

 

Warning: We know this episode is meandering and unlistenable... but you never know when a certain Futurama Space-TWO-cuLRRR may come out. This week. Ok, you do know.

Warning: Space AIDS. You know, Space Age AIDS.

 

Record after last episode... James 2-4, Andy 4-2, Dan 3-3.
