Happy Pride Month! In honor of our friends in the LGBTQ+ community, we (and guest Orville Mendoza) watched Spa Night. Spa Night is the directorial debut of Andrew Ahn, and was featured at Sundance in 2016. This indie flick is more than a coming out story. It's about family, immigrants, class, and more.
This week, we talk in depth about Asian American Poverty in Power Rangers, as well as just how fun and silly this franchise can be.
