John opens with some follow-up questions, and Merlin realizes it's going to be one of those episodes. John calls out Merlin's racism against his people. Both your hosts are now living the arms-free lifestyle.
Merlin has follow-up on his ongoing Siri and Apple TV experiment, and, improbably, this leads to further discussion of Cupertino's frustrating quality slide. Voice dinguses are reviewed, and IMDB is bad.
John has some water issues, and Merlin's lizard apparently has an unconventional face. Then, more with the Apple complaints. Messages is making Merlin look insane.
John has some harsh words about Merlin's Star Wars spoilers, and he doesn't even like those movies anyway. Getting tickets to the movie requires some detailed instructions, but then it ended up being unnecessary. Sometimes, it's just easier to do stuff yourself.
Avoiding spoilers is difficult, because, as stipulated, pretty much everything is a spoiler. Watchmen is lightly discussed. John's level of commitment to media he doesn't actually like is remarkable and weirdly admirable.
And, finally, John has questions about Merlin's bizarre obsession with the House of Commons' Brexit proceedings. To be clear, John is not telling the joke, he's communicating the joke.
