WFTM Podcast Episode 19.2: How Many Zombies Can We Fit In This Scene?

It’s been a busy week, so not much television was watched, but our fearless heroes take a trip to the sun with Sunshine (dude, it’s old, you don’t get spoiler warnings) and face the most zombies ever with The Walking Dead season 6. But first there is a lot of news to cover, including new webisodes of DC Superhero Girls, television adaptations of comics, some Star Wars stuff and more.
