Holy shit you guys where on fire this week, I had just taken a hit when Wombat said "Based on his accent he's never met a jew..." I don't think I've coughed harder in my life. One for the books.

Oh boy. Who’s gonna make the Prime Video essentials list for Ship. I think he needs a TV Guide just for the services he has, and clearly has no idea what they offer.

Love the show! I just wanted to say how much I prefer the name change to "Watch this Bois".  

 

Also, regarding the Trans Inclusive option for the Harry Potter Game, you are correct that it isn't anything too new, but I think the worry was that it would be regressive in the way it handles pronouns.  It wasn't starting from the same "neutral place" that many games are, but from a negative.  It has lots of negative baggage because of Rowling.  I hope that makes sense, I'm not great at articulating.

Hey CAG Team! Question!

 

Do you all ever experience situations where games or other media portray something you're intimately familiar with incorrectly and it takes you out of the experience? Think hackers watching swordfish, or someone who's into firearms who can't help but count how many shots the bad guy takes between reloads.  For me, it's like when you guys talk about cars! Lest anyone get any ideas from these guys, no the Ford EcoSport is not a truck. Calling an EcoSport a truck is like saying the treatment of republicans is akin to Jews during the holocaust. Sure, it's a think you can say, but it's also very dumb, and very wrong. (It's a lifted Ford Fiesta, for those wondering)

 

Love the show!

I will never stop calling it a truck now, never, ever, never.

100% correct on Tom & Jerry. I paused it at one point for my kid to go to the bathroom thinking it was close to ending, and it was only half over. It really drags its way through to the end.
