Thundarr and friends travel to San Francisco's Chinatown where they encounter an evil wizard who hires a barbarian warrior to fight Thundarr. Is the showdown everything we hoped it would be? David, Noel, and I talk that out alongside discussions of Chinese stereotypes, the appropriateness of dragons, and the best way to escape a slime pit.

Noel and I are joined by my pal writer Martin Powell (Dark Horse Comics' Jungle Tales of Tarzan, Edgar Rice Burroughs Comic Strips) to discuss the final chapter in MGM's Tarzan series. There's a lot to talk about, including Noel's spotting Elmo Lincoln (the first screen Tarzan) in the cast.

Dave, David, Evan, and I are joined by the one and only Jeff Somogyi (Down the Rabbit Hole, Talkin' Chopp) to talk about time travel, killer robots, and what could possibly connect those things to Samuel L Jackson's torturing Michael Sheen. It's very funny.
