THIS WEEK: With the Historians back in fighting shape, they cover the third and final movie for this series, as they witness Ambassador Hell’s growing competence. In addition, Sven’s frustration with Kamen Rider’s teleporting antics reaches new heights; we discuss the merits of free mind control; Van does not condone the cool cool crime of bootleg merchandise; we see the return of 600 IQ Hongo Takeshi; Shocker’s sales pitches are garbage; and much like Metang and our hosts, the Riders have two brains, but are no smarter for it.
