Chris and Tristan talk pop culture, films and literally nothing else.

Episodes

Episode 3

When is a sequel a prequel? Is a soft reboot a sequel? What the hell is the Godfather part 2?

Tristan & Chris tackle these questions head on and arrive at some conclusions. Or do they?...

Tristan also reminds Chris that Chris’s favourite sequel is Spider-Man 2. Which Chris had forgotten.

As sequels go, episode 2 was probably better than this one.
