Today's Pop A La Carte is one of our last All-Marvel all-the-time editions, this time featuring Valerie and Tatiana's in-depth discussions of Doctor Strange (1:00) and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (26:23). We talk the strength of Steven's origin story versus the mediocrity of his characterization, and delve a little bit into the whitewashing debacle as well. And as much as we love all things Guardians, we dissect the unnecessary amount of gross-out humor when compared to the beautiful themes of love and family.
