A ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Series Retrospective and Vol. 3 Review

The squad blasts through 700 jumps in time and space to reach the end of the James Gunn-directed Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy. Once we get all our organs in the right place again we take a look back at volumes one and two, discussing how well they’ve held up over the years and how they set up this final installment. 

We review volume three in typical The ‘Verse! fashion with a collection of rousing handwritten poems, sharing our favorite scenes, and ranking the film’s top three standout stars. This episode might go down in The ‘Verse! history as one of our least contentious episodes in a long while. Break out the galactic libations and pass around the yaro root! As long as it’s ripe.

If you want more The ‘Verse! coverage of these lovable space misfits, or you’re just in a festive mood, check out episode 77 to hear about the Guardians Holiday Special.
