After a brief vacation that, well, wasn’t really a vacation at all, we’re back. That’s right, it’s time for a brand new episode of The Flickcast.
On this week’s episode Chris and Joe discuss Pokemon Go, The Night Of, the outing of Mr. Sulu and the season finale of Game of Thrones. Plus, the usual more. The boys also debut a brand new segment of the show that has something to do with beer. You’ll just have to listen.
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of the movie Real Genius and Joe’s pick of the Plex media server.
