It's time for another one of Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast's patented movie review episodes, featuring one of the most highly anticipated superhero films in years: "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2."  We break down what we loved most about the latest feather in Marvel's cinematic cap, so spoilers abound.  Before that, though, there's "Riverdale" craziness, a couple of great documentaries, some dystopian futures, and a bunch of recently-canceled television shows we weren't watching to chat about.  This episode may be a tad unfettered, but it's pretty beautiful.  (On the inside.)

A SPOILER-filled review and discussion of Marvel's new blockbuster.  We declared the first film the best comic book movie of the modern age, so can the sequel possibly hope to live up to that standard?  Or is it... even BETTER?
