The One About…New Fall TV, Suicide Squad, & Star Wars or Florida

We know what you're thinking..."Isn't it Wednesday? Where's the intro? No music?" Well none of that matters because this episode will make your ears tingle and you feel things emotionally that you haven't felt in years. It's the FIRST EVER Pop_Not Soda episode without Brett! We know, you're welcome!

Brian and Dan are at the helm and they don't waste a minute. They dive right into Dan's empty apartment, rank all of the new fall TV shows (on a scale from Party of Five to 90210), Brian reviews DC's hot mess Suicide Squad (and of course Dan is sympathetic to it) and then the guys phone a contest to compete in the first ever round of 'Star Wars or Florida!' (thank you Rotten Tomatoes for the idea).

It's a once in a lifetime episode that you will not want to miss!
