IIAB Season 13 Episode 9 – Marvel’s Runaways, Godless, 6 Days

The best thing about being a bicycler or bicyclette is that its Christmas every Friday! In this episode Mark spins a tale of Winter woe as we delve into all of Mike’s TV and Film debasement. If Pretty Little Liars had superpowers you’d get Marvel’s Runaways, we decide if that is a good thing. Steve breaks the golden rule by adding miniseries Godless to the list and Mark continues to shock everyone in his willingness to learn about world events with 6 Days, a recounting of the Iranian Embassy siege from 1980.
