Episode 45: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

In the Tatumverse, Channing plays at least two characters named Duke: first in She's the Man, and also in this week's movie, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, a movie we're surprised has a sequel. In this episode, Wesleigh shares her Groundhog Day Marathon experience and fan theory, our friend Bob calls in to talk action figures and what they meant to him, we wonder why no girls' toys have made it into blockbuster franchises, and lament that JGL is completely wasted in this role.
