Be with us on the floor as we run into strangers, get over stimulated, see old friends and new, and then reflect on it all from the safety of their home.

We didn't even get to the topic last time, so we thought we should bring Jordan Morris back for an in-depth discussion of the trends that started in this console cycle, the trends that died in this console life cycle, plus Kumail saw The Breakfast Club for the first time and comic books and GTAV talk and more!

Today, actor Zach Cregger (Whitest Kids U Know) joins Emily and Kumail to rapturously gush about the wonder that is GTAV. We talk about its success, improvements the series has made along the way, story, what it's like to live in the city the game is based on, and much much more. Plus some talk about squirmy moments, Breaking Bad talk, Twitter game and more!

Some mild spoilers in this episode, so we recommend that you play through meeting Trevor, the third main character, before listening.

There is also a Breaking Bad spoiler from about two seasons ago, but we drop in a warning about that too.
