Living as we do in an age where almost any film or TV show can be found online via a streaming service or similar On-Demand forms, what will happen to the traditional means of culture consumption? The boys attempt to answer that question this week as they look at the different ways in which we can now enjoy the things we enjoy. Along the way, they contemplate the future of the cinematic experience, wonder whether The Lone Ranger could have been saved by day-and-date releasing, and generally muse over the future of cinemas, TV networks and physical formats. Despite being uncommonly focused, there are digressions aplenty, including a disturbing peak inside Joe's campaign to get Mannequin re-released.

Enjoy, you modern ne'er do wells!
