EXCELSIOR!

Well, two posts in pretty quick succession, but we finally got this too upload properly. Youtube was being a real brat.

We went to see Avengers 2 yesterday! We quite enjoyed it and, after letting everything settle and thinking it over a bit more, we went over it one more time. What did we like? What didn’t we like? Did the themes work? Was Ultron a good villain?

All off this and more we talked about in the podcast, so go give it a listen!
