IC 27: Real World Memes

There’s a statue in the middle of London of a shirtless Jeff Goldblum, and of course someone’s complaining about it online. Do memes belong in the real world, or should they stay on the Internet? The DC Cinematic Universe keeps trying without much success. In What We’re Playing/Watching This Week, Randolf’s spent hours on a quirky JRPG, while Michael has gotten around to finishing Stranger Things. GIBI features even more trailers (for good things this time), and some cool webcomics.
