Show X - Episode 250 - Ken's Movie of Warcraft Review  

Show X's 250th episode. Wayne is fresh back from his trip to Canada and Ken is recovering from a drunken Tankfest celebration. Tankfest consisted of live bands, lots of meat, and a knock off of terrible liqour. He even managed to only annoy neighbors over a block away from the party.
