THIS WEEK: After a rocky start to season 2, Cyborg Soldier finally finds its feet. In addition, the historians tackle the differences between their least-favorite writers, 009 is so very done with his cyborg uncles; 004 is the least okay he’s ever been in his life; Van should not be trusted with shapeshifting powers; Joe Shimamura has an extended visit to the Speed Force and does not like it; Sven will not tolerate slander about 1999’s The Mummy; 003 gets her short time in the action spotlight; and if you’re being written by Toshiki Inoue, blink twice!

The animorphs podcast Van mentions in this episode is Morph Club, hosted by Megan Brennan and Carey Pietsch (@morphclubcast on Twitter). Check it out!
