@King Kamala one piece has just short of 1000 episodes and about 15 movies so better get started. MiSu is completely obsessed with it. He appears on podcasts about it all the time and things like that. It is probably one of the best anime of all-time so as always MiSu has imppecable taste.

Not a direct reference but Police Academy 4 was on tv today and the guy who plays Proctor really looks like Greg Gagne.

I was just about to post that in the AEW thread. I don't watch that channel often but happened to catch the right time. Good stuff. I think Orange Cassidy made some new fans in the studio.

Excalibur is the guest on this week's episode of Doughboys. I guess it's not TOO unexpected since Joey Janela and Colt Cabana have previously been guests. Probably surprised there aren't more considering how often wrestlers have to eat at chain restaurants.

Watched season 1 of Hacks this week (highly recommended) and one episode had a main character’s mother talk about ordering the Royal Rumble at his house. His boyfriend then mentioned he was obsessed with the Divas back in the day and mentioned Jacqueline, Ivory, Lita and Trish by name (IIRC).

I was watching The Next Thing You Eat, the new David Chang Hulu docuseries on the future of food production last night. During the beginning of the burgers episode, they had a montage of fast food YouTubers and THE BIG GUY showed up. I got excited for a second before I had to explain to my lady who RYBACK is.
