20th Anniversary of ‘Lord of the Rings’ Blindspot + Shazam! & More Cowbell

The Squad! delivers a treat this week with a DOUBLE FEATURE SPECIAL. We erase one third of Bridget’s Lord of the Rings blindspot with a thorough discussion of Fellowship of the Ring. Listen as we traipse through Middle Earth with our LOTR noob dodging ringwraiths, slashing orcs, and getting Sean Astin confused with another Sean.

Just when you think you can’t have any more fun, we jump into a review of the funnest DC film, Shazam! as we await the sequel, Fury of the Gods, with childlike excitement.

In case that’s too much enjoyment for you, we get dark and depressing in the news segment with the passing away of an Indiana Jones crew member, the cancelation of Y: The Last Man, and the on and off beef between Fast and Furious stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
