Wolverine expert Renata returns to recap the first two (confusingly named) Wolverine movies featuring Hugh Jackman as an appetizer for our spoiler-filled discussion of the new movie Logan.

Also: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was the winner of our episode 57 Bellwether Friends What to Watch Next Bracket Challenge! Thanks to everyone who voted. We will be recording an episode about the show in the near future!

Sometimes when you’re having trouble figuring out how to narrow down your choices, you do a bracket. Well, you do that if you’re Anna. Alene likes to ask everyone she knows what they think. In this episode, we do both.
