    Avengers: Endgame (w/ Joel Kim Booster)

    Avengers: Endgame (w/ Joel Kim Booster)

    All good Avengery things must come to an end. Comedian/writer/actor and creator of Fire Island (arguably the best film outside the MCU), Joel Kim Booster joins Nicole and Lauren to wave a teary goodbye to the ensemble-est part of the franchise. They also do some NSFW Marvel-related shopping on Etsy.com, a sentence that none of us ever thought we'd ever write, ever. 

    Next week's movie: WandaVision, Episodes 1-4 (2019)

    Captain Marvel (w/ Emily Gonzalez and Sammy Smart of Too Scary; Didn't Watch)

    Captain Marvel (w/ Emily Gonzalez and Sammy Smart of Too Scary; Didn't Watch)

    The MCU finally serves up a female lead superhero and Nicole and Lauren are... well, less than impressed. Emily Gonzalez and Sammy Smart of new Headgum show Too Scary; Didn't Watch go off-script to watch a non-scary movie with us, as we meet Carol Danvers and discuss the moral ambiguity of Nick Fury doing... that thing... he did... to the skrull. You know the scene we're talking about.

    Avengers: Infinity War (w/ Jon Gabrus)

    Avengers: Infinity War (w/ Jon Gabrus)

    Well, well, well - if it isn't last season's Newcomers host Gabrus, reunited with Lauren and Nicole once again, not unlike the way the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy join forces in this week's MCU installment. We totally planned it that way! Join us, and them, as they fight to protect all the Infinity Stones (not unlike Croc Jibbitz) from the evil grasp of evil Thanos.

    Black Panther (w/ Shaun Diston)

    Black Panther (w/ Shaun Diston)

    Bet you've been wondering when Lauren and Nicole would make it back to Wakanda. Well, they've arrived. And? They love it. True friend-of-the-pod Shaun Diston stops by with his well-worn copy of the Marvel Encyclopedia to teach us a thing or two about the Xhosa language, vibranium mines, and - most importantly - which MCU characters Lauren and Nicole should get to play.

    Thor: Ragnarok (w/ Paul Scheer)

    Thor: Ragnarok (w/ Paul Scheer)

    Everyone said Nicole and Lauren would like this one. Since the start of the season, they all said: "Just wait 'til Thor: Ragnarok." And so we waited, traveling to Xandar and the Quantum Realm and the Avengers' mansion, until it was time for us to reunite with Thor and Loki and Heimdall (but this time, they're funnier).

    Paul Scheer (How Did This Get Made?, The League, Marvel 616) stops by to find out if Nicole and Lauren did, in fact, like this one. Well, did they? You'll have to tune in to find out.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming (w/ Zach Cherry)

    Spider-Man: Homecoming (w/ Zach Cherry)

    Fiiiinallyyyy, Nicole and Lauren get to hang out with Peter Parker for a whole feature. And who better to take us through Spider-man's return to the MCU than actor, comedian, and Marvel's Next Breakout Superhero according to Stephen Colbert: Zach Cherry. And before you ask: yes, we watch Tom Holland's wet-hot performance of Umbrella and, yes, we get a Cam update! Wow, a jam-packed ep.
