Episode 6: Sacrifice

Pete: X2: X-Men United (movie)
Martha: Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Beginnings (movie)

It’s here! It’s here! Martha takes a victory lap when Pete admits that one of these items is his most favoritest homework he’s been assigned yet (which one may surprise you), we argue intent of story versus intent of character, Calee feels skeptical about deconstructed magical girls, and we once again forget to talk about Logan even though it’s apparently relevant to absolutely everything we’re doing anymore.
