Buckle Baby Groot into his seatbelt, because we’re about to board the Milano with our favorite merry band of intergalactic A-holes on this week’s episode of the Geek League Of America LeagueCast! Join Jeff, Adam, and Shawn as they review (with full-on SPOILERS) the most anticipated movie of the summer – Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2! The League discusses how James Gunn was allowed to to further develop the relationships and the dysfunctional family aspects of the characters and craft a loose plot that services the characters, rather than plop them in an intricate, plot-based movie that would only serve to set up Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. In addition, every relationship is analyzed, from Star-Lord reuniting with his estranged cosmic god of a father, Ego, to the deadly sibling rivalry between Nebula and Gamora. The gang also shares their thoughts on how the songs of Awesome Mixtape Vol. 2 stack up, whether or not there was too much Baby Groot cuteness, the action sequences, the special effects, and of course, the touching paternal message in the movie and the family dynamics within the Guardians! Plus, headlines with Shawn, and a major announcement about the future of the show!
