From there the cast discusses The Witcher on Netflix, the inspirational styling of Netflix animation, the conclusion of DC Comics Doomsday Clock, the upcoming Star Trek series Picard on CBS All AccessSteven Universe Future on Cartoon Network, as well as drag in the form of Moving Parts the Trixie Mattel documentary and the new Netflix series, AJ and the Queen starring RuPaul (and a few word about her new album, You’re A Winner, Baby!).
