CP Episode 57: Um...Actually...


This week we talked about the passing of Nelsan Ellis who played the part of Lafayette Reynolds on HBO's True Blood. We also discuss the release of Castlevania on Netflix and the future of the Wonder Woman and Fast & Furious franchises.

We also play an epic game of Um...Actually. This is a relatively new game that has really taken off online thanks to the guys over at College Humor. In this game a statement is made that has a piece of false information. You get a point if you can correct the statement. And you have to do it by beginning with the annoyingly nerdy "Um...actually..."
