THIS WEEK: Alexa, Sven, and Van wrap up Kamen Rider V3 (1973). While their opinions are largely positive, the final stretch isn't without its share of last-minute curveballs. Join them as they explore Yuki and Great Leader's dynamic; Van's attempts at logic are met with about the reaction you would expect; we discuss the inherent awfulness of starfish and alternate realities; Shiro Kazami almost definitely failed his semester; and they spoil a poignant moment by pointing out just how shortly it sticks.

Rest in Tahiti, Joji Yuki.
