Hello! It’s time for a brand new episode of The Flickcast. We’re excited. Super excited. We hope you are too.
On this week’s show Chris and Joe pretty much devote the entire episode to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Do they like it? Do they hate it? Is it amazing or the biggest POS since Affleck played Daredevil? Does anyone care at this point? Listen and find out . . . if you dare!
Picks this week are a secret but you can probably guess if you try really, really hard.
As always, if you have comments, questions, critiques, offers of sponsorship, or whatever, feel free to hit us up in the comments, on Twitter, at Facebook, Google+ or via email.
