It’s a bit of a slow roll in the world of entertainment this week as we all wait for the momentous arrival of what just might be the biggest movie of all time, Avengers: Endgame, which hits theaters April 26. But that’s actually a good thing, as it gives us a bit of time to catch you up on a whole bunch of crazy stuff likely coming down the pike from Disney’s MCU in the wake of the movie that will wrap up 22 films and 10 years of epic action.
We’ll also be talking about one of the craziest TV shows we’ve ever seen a trailer for coming to Amazon Prime Video — a violent, sexualized superhero send-up starring Karl Urban called The Boys. Based on the popular comic from Preacher co-creator Garth Ennis, this one’s gonna be good — or terrible, we’re not sure. We’ll go into these and much more on today’s show.

Between the Streams
Between the Streams is your weekly streaming guide to all of the hottest, most important, and (of course) dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was and a preview for what is ahead. We tackle the best and brightest movies and TV shows coming your way, including way too many superhero movies — and we love it.
At Between the Streams, we take on the big issues of our times, like whether or not Star Wars is going to go off the rails in the next few years (probably), or why five seasons is the ultimate zenith for any drama that wants to go out on top (thank you, Breaking Bad). We’re just as happy arguing about whether or not Alf was a quintessential ’80s sitcom as we are pondering Hollywood’s increasing penchant for reboots and nostalgia-driven mash-ups like Stranger Things. In short, we’re all about the most awesome, water cooler-worthy entertainment subjects that happen each and every week.
We do the tough part so you don’t have to, digging up all the stories you need to know about each Friday in a fun and succinct weekly chat. So sit back, grab something to drink, and enjoy the ride. It’s all entertainment from here, and let’s face it, we could all use the break.
