    There's no stopping the news and previews here at the Pop Culture Cosmos as Melinda Barkhouse-Ross and Gerald set up your weekend with some MAJOR SPOILERS on the episode fives for both Peacemaker and The Book of Boba Fett. With Boba Fett, a major surprise arrival charts the way for the uber-popular Mandalorian series in their season three coming soon but did it take too much away from the current timeline being shown on Disney+? Plus with Comcast reporting a 1.7 billion dollar loss for Peacock in 2021, could trouble be on the horizon for this streaming outlet? What suggestions do we have that could change their fortunes? All this and Melinda and Gerald weigh in on a possible end date for Star Trek: Picard and what type of Star Wars video games we would create upon hearing the news of EA and Respawn teaming together for three of their own after the success of Jedi Fallen Order. And John Orlando from The PVDCast returns with his thoughts on the squared circle as we preview the WWE's Royal Rumble and who the big winners and surprise entrants might be, and also if Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) can become that next standout wrestling organization.

    Catching you up with the latest in pop culture is what we do and this week's Cosmos has Gerald Glassford and a returning Himanish Goel talking about the latest installment in the Tom Clancy game universe in Rainbow Six Extraction. What's the word on the street about this co-op tactical shooter and will its unusual alien premise turn off Tom Clancy fans? Plus the guys talk about the final video game sales numbers for 2021 from the NPD and go over which games were (and were not) a surprise performer. And with the success of Korean hits such as K-Pop, Parasite, and Squid Game Himanish speculates if the next entertainment juggernaut can come from one of India's famous Bollywood productions. All this and TJ Johnson in part two of our conversation on Microsoft's pending purchase of Activision/Blizzard, Melinda Barkhouse-Ross has tabletop RPG gaming on the mind and Jamie Monroy talks about the upcoming Bob's Burgers movie. Another jam-packed episode concludes with a reminder of the release of the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves bundle (Uncharted 4/Uncharted: Lost Legacy) this week to the Playstation 5 and how this could be a great way to experience the most recent Uncharted releases.
