Minhdzuy & Omar try to leave immediately, but Havana manages to get them to stay by telling them about all the very beautiful and nice people. They stay! Omar flirts with Havana and tells a story about J. Montgomery, some person who built a plane before the Wright Brothers. Minhdzuy builds a fan and talks about that time when they issued a bunch of new quarters. Havana tries to add her own story but can’t think of anything.

33 - A Murder In Riverdale? Omar & Minhdzuy, Detectives Worthy Of The CW
Minhdzuy and Omar find themselves in another library, but despite its similar appearance to the other libraries, they soon discover that it’s a non-shush library on a high school campus. They start to plan their entry into the Hollywood Fringe Festival once they make it back to their universe, but soon get distracted by Regina Spektor’s cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps in Kubo and the Two Strings. Omar brutally attacks Minhdzuy for always singing Let It Be at karaoke. Outside, their Damien Chazelle call doesn’t work, but they observe that the high school looks very nice, unlike Minhdzuy’s alma mater, Wilson High School. Omar points out that it looks like Riverdale, with which Minhdzuy is completely unfamiliar. He confuses it both with UC Riverside, and Buffy’s Sunnydale, infuriating Omar, who finally explains the universe of Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead. Plus, they get into the rebooted universe of Home Alone 4, featuring French Stewart, and a McAlister divorce. The duo begins to notice how beautiful everyone looks, and Omar accidentally catcalls some highschool girls. When a mysterious murder is discovered, they take it upon themselves to solve it. It ends up being incredibly easy to solve, even though they got distracted and started talking about X-Men, Ultron, and Apocalypse. They spend a few minutes forgetting about Marvel’s The Annihilators. They’re really good at solving mysteries.

32 - And The Winner Is… La La Land? With Special Guest Damien Chazelle!
Minhdzuy and Omar wake up in another giant library, but something seems amiss. After naming all six human senses and all twenty-five human emotions, they realize that the library is almost exactly the same as the library they’d just seen. For some reason, this prompts them to criticize David Ayers’ direction in Suicide Squad, as well as Jared Leto’s performance as the Joker. That leads them to wonder why Peter Jackson shot an extra movie while shooting The Hobbit. Why was it so long? Why was GI Joe so underrated? And how does French Stewart keep making his way into movie sequels? Plus, are Minhdzuy and Omar related? His Grandma is Annie Oakley and Minhdzuy’s Grandpa is Tyler Oakley! After going outside, they interview one of the local people, who happens to be holding an Oscar, and it’s 2017’s Best Director, Damien Chazelle! But it doesn’t stop there! It turns out that Minhdzuy and Omar are in a universe where La La Land won the Oscar for Best Picture after a snafu with some envelopes led Suicide Squad to have been temporarily named Best Picture! And Minhdzuy makes a plea for people to stop needlessly hating Anne Hathaway. Omar reminds everyone of Natalie Portman’s stellar acting in Star Wars Episode 1, and then quickly plugs This American Life’s app, Shortcut. Also a heptapod from Arrival shows up and Minhdzuy speaks to it. And then Ryan Reynolds talks to them too. There are a bunch of celebrities in this episode.

31 - The Language Of Exploration! Have We Stumbled Upon The Berenstein Universe?
After touching the Jerry Bruckheimer wheel, Minhdzuy and Omar wake up in a giant library and discover a magical, psychic mural that responds to thoughts. Using the language of exploration, Omar and Minhdzuy ask it basic questions to help them figure out where they are, but soon realize that true adventure lies outside. Our two explorers find a perfectly preserved version of the Acropolis, leading them to believe that they’re in Nashville, Tennessee. However, Omar comes to the starchy conclusion that since no humans are around, they’ve both traveled to an alternative universe where humanity has been completely wiped out. Not only is this an alternate universe, but it’s the oft-discussed Berenstein universe that much of humanity came from before slipping in to the Berenstain universe! It’s the same universe that contains Sinbad’s Shazam movie! With the full power of the Mandela Effect in their hands, Minhdzuy & Omar can now jump between universes in order to solve some great new mysteries!

Minhdzuy & Omar have been living on the Fry’s Electronics Spaceship for far too long now and come to the realization that perhaps, they are really, truly stuck on the ship. As they live their new lives on the ship, they lament the decorative Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean 3) pirate ship steering wheel that doesn’t seem to do anything other than mock their inability to move anywhere. Now that they’ve accepted their new home, they decide to fire up the podcast machine once again and try watching the final 3 episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. Sailor Saturn, the soldier of destruction, makes her debut and Minhdzuy and Omar LOVE her. After an epic battle, they find out that Crystal ends on a cliffhanger! When does the final season begin? They’re not sure. Minhdzuy and Omar reflect on the season and wonder what an alternate universe might be like. Their pondering leads them to wonder if maybe their fourth season might become possible if they try to puncture universes and cross over somewhere else.
