Where we start with Jason's recounting of his comedy trip to NCCAF '16 in N.C. and the beginnings of FINGER EYES. After that he tells us that "Deadpool" is, on a scale from "One To Amazing" is totally Amazing and as kick ass as you want it to be. Then we see/hear a couple of fan girl entries from Tom Julian and fellow network show "Teddy and the Bassman"!!!!

Evan bitches about inconsequential things (namely numbers in movie titles) and we talk about the wonder (mimic?) that is L.A. Hugh Hefner, then we close the show with our new torturous QUIZ Do You Want to Play a Game!! P.S.-kids if you listen... Finger Eyes...nuff said.
