Welcome back once again, Squadmates!

I bring to you our amazing... Episode 24 : The Two Year Anniversary – The Nightshade Odyssey

At about one hour and fifty six minutes in, I play the final Suicide Squad trailer and give my thoughts on it....

And as I mentioned, here is the link for the Suicide Squad trailer, with the little mini-bios of the Squad members:

After I uploaded the episode, one thing I thought of I forgot to cover was the music.

In short, I love the music of the trailer.  For the rest of my thoughts, listen in....

Finally I wrap things up with Suicide Notes.

Thank you for listening to this episode of Task Force X.
