S07.E09: Get ‘Em While They’re Young
The last regulation episode of the season is upon us! This week, Scott, Seth, and Diana compete for the last spot in the season seven playoffs in the third elimination match of the Vancouver Rehearsal Tapes division. On the docket this week are games about real life commercial products popping up in pop culture, as well as telling us how to get to Sesame Street with a quiz about the parodies they've employed. All this, plus a lightning round! Our next episode is a special with three special guests from the iFanboy podcast network, and we'll be back two Mondays after that for the season seven playoffs!
