Then it is on to our epic 2013 year in review featuring our best and worst picks of the past year.

Other movies making the good list include Despicable Me 2, World War Z, End of the World, Frozen, and World's End. Our worst of the year include the Lone Ranger, Man of Steel, Star Trek 2 and Iron Man 3. 

Then we turn our sophisticated gaze towards the television and Matt chose Sleepy Hollow as his pick of the year while Patrick chose Game of Thrones. Other good shows include American Horror Story, Broadchurch, Toy Hunter, Blacklist, Orange is the New Black, Under the Dome and Key and Peele. Our dogs of the year on the tube include Agents of Shield, High School USA, and Family Guy.

We finish with a look back at the world of comic books. Our mutual Comic of the Year (ongoing) was Superior Spider-Man from Marvel.

Other books that made the best of list include Masks, No Tomorrow, Imagine Agents, It Came from Beyond!, Death Sentence, Saga, Skyward, Black Beetle, Sex Crimals, Injustice, and Afterlife With Archie.

If that was not enough the boys play comic book trivia from the board game Comic Crusades throughout the program.
