Unqualified Gamers 100th episode! [3:29]

Agent Carter The Iron Curtain [3:51]
The hosts find themselves on the backside of the Agent Carter special event as things heat up for Agent Carter and we learn to do as Peggy says. As usual Marvel does it best to successfully creep us out by showing us The Red Room and just why Dottie is as fundamentally crazy as she is. For those of us not making the connection at home Marvel pulls back the veiling curtain and tells us flat out that Leviathan is a secret Russian shadow organization. Marvel also tries to make us like Thompson but the hosts just can't totally get there from Thompson still being...well Thompson. And the hosts wonder why Sousa is sitting on his profound discovery and we aren't talking about what he discovered in the SSR changing room either. Plus maybe Chief Dooley isn't that bad of a guy either since he wants what we want - the truth.
