On this episode we review hit series Brooklyn Nine-Nine starring Andy Samberg and collected comic series S.H.I.E.L.D.. by Jim Steranko. We also talk with Mark Cheng and G.I. Joe legend Larry Hama about their recent Kickstarter project Ghost Source Zero.
The new season of HBO’s The Newsroom is up and running, and the second episode, "The Genoa Tip," is principally spent maneuvering us towards the season’s larger ongoing stories.
