Welcome again to another episode of NT&V! This week, it's Vol #5 of our Superhero movie discussion series "We Are Groot", and it's time to open the continuity-can-of-worms that is the X-MEN series, starting with the 60's throwback, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS!! This thing is so swingin' it's basically an Austin Powers film, and we have a blast talking casting choices, action sequences, cameos and the X-MEN franchise on the whole (any other Apocalypse defenders out there???... No???... it's just Tys then...)

PLUS! We discuss two directors that are polarising in their own very distinctive ways in Talkin' Trailers, Tys jumps into the world of DC animation in What Did You Watch This Week?, and Nic recommends a sequel that may very well be better than the original in this week's Crossing The Streams segment.
