    BvS_ttv_logo_newOn this week’s podcast, Episode 291, we discussed some things we did this week. One of those things discussed was that Shaun had finally got around to viewing, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, or as Shaun calls it “Bat-Supe”, nay Bat Soup. It ended up being a really long discussion of the film and the unfolding DC/Warner Bros. franchise, so we decided to release it as a Side Trip.

    We hope you enjoy the discussion.

    And we will return next week with more Doctor Who discussions in Episode 292, so be sure to watch for that.
