We're in the Endgame now! Rachel and Melissa talk Endgame while Alex is on vacation. We have so many thoughts. Namely, should we even be talking about this movie?

This month, we're covering a few movies, all of which left us wanting something a little more. Happy Death Day 2 (04:28) fell back into nerdy Asian Stereotypes, Battle Angel: Alita (13:30) whitewashed some of it's main characters, and Captain Marvel (25:10) covered Gemma Chan in green paint.

This month, we're discussing the Oscar-nominated documentary Minding the Gap. Directed by Bing Liu, Minding the Gap uses 12 years worth of footage that feature Bing and some of his skate boarding community in Rockford, IL. TW: this film and episode discuss domestic abuse.

We have a bonus for you! You might recognize actress Olivia Cheng from Marco Polo on Netflix, but she's making waves for her role in Syfy's Deadly Class and for the upcoming Cinemax show Warrior (based of the writings of Bruce Lee.) Olivia was kind enough to call us for an interview. 

Deadly Class is airing now on Syfy, and Warrior drops on April 5th. You can follow Olivia at @thatoliviacheng on Instagram and Twitter.

We're taking a turn this week to discuss TV. It's awards season, and with all the success of Killing Eve, and The Assassination of Gianni Versace, we wanted to celebrate our favorite TV shows with AAPI actors. In this episode we talk about Killing Eve, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and The Good Place.

We've waited so long for a Hapa Hero! Jason Momoa stormed into our hearts as Aquaman, a shirtless, wet, halfbreed superhero. Do we spend a lot of time talking about how hot he is? Yes! Do we also discuss how Aquaman is Hapa AF? YES! 

Also, happy Season 4!
