Ep. 188: Sex on the Shrimp

Mando Mondays, new Black Series figures, video game consoles, resumes, Giancarlo Esposito, and more! Here's what happens:

  • Who would have ever guessed that Who Got What would be based on cell phone insurance?
  • StarWars.com announces Mando Mondays. I guess they must listen to Steele Wars.
  • There will be some cool new Black Series figures from The Mandalorian. Good bye, money.
  • The next-gen game consoles are opening up for preorder.
  • Timuera Morrison's agent updated his resume. Oh man.
  • Giancarlo Esposito is the best hype man out there right now, for real.
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 is RAD.
  • Watch S01E04 of The Mandalorian, Ch. 4: Sanctuary, with us! Sipping broth has never been so adorable.
  • It probably should have been Shrimp on the Beach instead.
