Yey!
This episode features The Gang Secretary sketch, written by Ben, Liam and featuring Roman, and the track This Town Is Too Big.
When asked, Holly was most surprised by Bioshock - a franchise which Liam & Laura have enjoyed in-depth, a few times over. Bioshock is a lore-rich franchise, taking place in an under-water dystopian ruin. We highly recommend Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite.
Liam & Ben did, in the end, get round to playing some Hydro Thunder on PSOne. You can watch the entire thing unfold below, in all it's pixelated glory!
