Great show once again guys. Although I disagree with Mike about the Watchmen ending. Judge Brett Cullum explained why it works a few months ago :

I say the squid versus what hit the screen is apple and orange. Back in the Cold War the squid made sense since it was the only threat that could stop the escalation - a common enemy from space. But with today's modern sensibilities it makes more sense to have a weapon of "mass destruction" like Dr. Manhattan be a scapegoat. We like it because it fits the current era that much better, but back in 1989 or 90 I doubt it would resonate as well. I get why each one did what they did with the ending. Jury Room topic
