21Mar

We here at Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast pride ourselves on sharing our honest opinions, but things may get a little too honest in this episode.  After our spoiler-free review of "Kong: Skull Island," we dip into the latest entertainment news, get emotional over some heart-tugging television and debate the value of movie theaters in this post-Netflix world.  And stick around until the end to learn what all the well-dressed Jesses will be wearing this season!

Early impressions of the critically-divisive "Iron Fist," Netflix ratings changing from stars to thumbs as they try and de-emphasize the theater-going experience, second seasons for "Love" and "Master of None," identifying with "I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore," trying to figure out Savitar's endgame on "The Flash," Teri Hatcher joins cast of "Supergirl," "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" among a glut of time travel shows and the return of the "Amazing Stories" anthology.
