It’s Friday again and if you’re not out trying to score a new big screen TV or some other deal fro Black Friday, we’ve got something for you: a new episode of The Flickcast! The best part? It’s absolutely free and you don’t have to wait in line or get into a fistfight just to hear it. You’re welcome.
On this week’s show Chris and Joe spend quite a bit of time discussing the new Jessica Jones series on Netflix. They also cover the upcoming Lost in Space reboot (also on Netflix), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (coming soon to the CW), the current status of Glenn on The Walking Dead and Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, Supergirl, Misery on Broadway and a whole lot more.
Picks this week are unanimous in that both of your hosts picked Jessica Jones. Not a surprise, however, ’cause it’s a really good show. You should check it out.
