Top Episodes from New Shows: Week of 11/4/13

1. Thank God It's Thorsday

Guess what everybody? A movie based on a comic book character is coming out this week! A movie like this comes out but 7 or 8 times a year, so to pay tribute, Tim and Tom discuss the new Thor movie and its relation to the TV show Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We also discuss the best 3D movies we've seen and Tim tries to rally everyone to support non-comic book movies. [NO SPOILERS, except for a reference to the end of The Sixth Sense] Then at 21:40, we try to discuss all the latest in Kanye news, including a discussion of how much one should be willing to pay to see him in concert, but it mostly devolves into an argument about the merits of Kim Kardashian as a person.
