Ep. 48 – Giving Reboots the Boot

Did you miss us?

The Happy Xen Podcast returns after Summer break, diving head first into pop culture controversy with the dreaded REBOOT! In this episode we go over what is good,  bad, and just plain unneeded with reboots. Plus we get into the differences (and which we prefer) between a reboot, a remake and the long after sequel. Will you agree with Adam or Matt? Or are they both completely off the mark? We also pay tribute to the late great Chadwick Boseman, fill you in on what we’ve been up to over these past couple of months, and what’s been happening in the world of geek and pop culture! So listen in once more as we continue to fill your ears with our Xennial point of view on The Happy Xen Podcast!

    Defending the new Robocop is a bold choice. Adam stands alone on that one.
