This week, after still having no idea what the hell was up with 1987 after our last episode, Dave and Meg flew back this week to give the year another shot by watching the movie we assume would make all the money today: The Superhero one.  So we watched Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.  We go over Lex Luthor's useless nephew, A Love square that winds up in a sitcom, and the mechanics of hucking things into the sun.
