The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are back with a lot of news and some significant May movies to review and discuss. The guys have Batman news, Game of Thrones finales, and more dead celebrities to improperly mourn. This week's pitch is in honor of "Detective Pikachu" and bringing video game characters into the real world or telling stories within those video game worlds. Afterwards the guys summarize the episode in grand Gene Shalit blurb-style with America's favorite game "So Shalit Be."
