THIS WEEK: Ambassador Hell is so very desperate to jump the gun and announce that his underlings have killed Kamen Rider. He’s wrong every time. Also, Sven wants you to know headscissor takedowns are NOT hurricanranas. We contemplate the similarities between Showa Riders and Geralt of Rivia and discuss the evolution of the show; Rider nearly falls prey to his greatest weakness once again; Dr. A. Cula comes back to sabotage his replacement; Hayato might be slacking on the job offscreen; Sven hates X-Ray plots; and don’t forget to sign the Shocker yearbook!!
