In which James Leask and Brandon Schatz watch Red
and talk about explosions and other rad things.

comic miniseries about a retired CIA operative (Bruce Willis
) who finds himself targeted for assassination and has to figure out why, with the help of his fellow retired operative friends. And then people start exploding! I’m a fan of this.
