This week we kick ass and take names with a frank and heartfelt discussion of the life, times and films of Jean-Claude Van Damme.  Laura is the latest entry in our film noir season and Table Time sees our first videogame discussion with a quick look at Final Fantasy XIII. Conor also has a word or two to say about the classic television thriller The Prisoner.  Rounding off the latest episode is our usual question and answer section, this week featuring our first ever comment!
