Anthony and Andrew discuss the story challenges (and failures) of Game of Thrones season five, including the show's story-breaking approach to heroes, the use of violence against women as a narrative device, and whatever the heck happened in Dorne.

Plus! Following on from last episode's look back at the classic Jurassic Park, the chaps follow up with a quick breakdown of Jurassic World. What worked, what didn't work, and what really, really didn't work?

With this weekend's release of Jurassic World, Anthony and Andrew revisit the 1993 classic, looking at the scale and pace of the movie, the character of the dinosaurs, and how special effects play into how movies tell stories. 

Plus, Anthony digs up an old cookbook, and Andrew talks about the disappointment of Sense8.
