    Not Playing with Lex and Dan June 17, 2021 Top Gun
    7.2 Top Gun

    Come fly the not so friendly skies with Lieutenant Dan “Gambit” Moren and his wingman Lieutenant Lex “Snuggie” Friedman as they watch 1986’s seminal fighter jet treatise, Top Gun.

    Hot topics include surprising comedy, solidly workmanlike craft, and whether or not Tom Cruise will ever sing on film again.
