The gang is back together (briefly) to pay tribute to the late Bill Paxton, as Paul, Daniel and Lee relate their memories of his career on film. Before they bid Paul farwell, what they've watched as of late is also chatted about. Then Lee and Daniel get into the meat of the episode by talking about the thriller/neo-noir "A Simple Plan", from 1998, directed by Sam Rami of all people.

As usual with these intermission episodes, the original plans fell through for an official episode, so here's a small fix for those who expect an episode every week. This time out friend of the show Kit Power has come through like a superstar to give you all a verbal beat-down of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016), and then he has much more positive things to say about "The LEGO Batman Movie" (2017). Lee is also on this saying some things of less importance.
