My Thoughts: Wow, this is a lot of strong personalities talking, oftentimes over one another, and the topics jump all over the place and it’s hard to keep track of things. Towards the end Eddie and Bryan get into a heated discussion about the CIA, the government, and conspiracies in general. They don’t spend that much time watching fights.
