The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are looking backwards and forwards by remaking sci-fi action film franchises from the 1970s and 80s, much like the new big-budget rendition in the realm of "Mad Max," a franchise last seen 30 years ago. In the game this week, a quick rendition of Movies Against Humanity. The guys take some strange detours, as usual, with topics like Spider-Man's natural ability to make webbing, whether Lucifer would work for the police or be a defense attourney, American Gladiator rip-offs, and Ben defend the insanity that is "Zardoz."
