Devin & Amy clash lightsabers in the first ever versus episode where they will decide which Star Wars movie belongs in the canon. The prequels don't even deserve to be in the running.

My first show and Devin, you are just a weenie in this. So aggressive and reaching to make Revenge of the Nerds to most insensitive movie of all time. There is heart in Revenge of the Nerds, there is a shared empathy for feeling cast aside. I am three years late on this episode but I had to say that.
