It's raining DATS and dogs! Marcus punches things, Yoshino and Thomas try to do things but get upstaged by Marcus, and then Marcus and Thomas resolve their differences by mercilessly hunting and exterminating a harmless Digimon.

In this episode, we discuss our first impressions of the cast and debut the new Game Show Gattai segment, Jeff discusses the (promising and troubling) Digimon-Human societal dynamics of this season, Ashley is disappointed about Yoshino, and we put Marcus on trial.

Thanks for listening!
