Ocean Murff heads a trio of Krissy Lenz and Pete Wright in what is ultimately an episode heavy with Top Gun: Maverick enthusiasm. They dig into Tom Cruise’s stunt mania, dragging the cast into the cockpits to film the thing, while Krissy cements her position as a Top Gun Flat Earther.

Elsewhere, Margo Robbie is taking the lead on a European Ocean’s Eleven movie set in the 60’s. Kids in the Hall are back on Amazon Prime, Ocean wants more Wonder Twins because he can’t have them, and Pete sings the praises of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds sitting atop Slow Horses.


The crew was presented with an either/or this week in an effort to determine favorite films in which a sequel or remake improved the franchise over the original, or made it worse. At least this round is full of steals.
