Big News
This week in one of our most unfocused episodes, we chat about Benihoff and Weiss being off Star Wars and the revelations of how they “ran” Game of Thrones, the new Sonic trailer and how much money went into the redesign, the trailer for Half Life: Alyx, the early season 2 renewals for The Witcher and Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series, and bizarrely, Ian talks about his hatred of mimes and guesses and spoils the plot of Last Christmas.
