This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart talk Turnabout Intruder. We talk about how it fits as a final episode, what we might have liked to see instead as a series finale, and overall ideas and concepts of the story.

Does Turnabout Intruder work as a series finale? Is it really as awful as its reputation? What positives can we take from this traditionally maligned episode? All this and more in this week’s discussion, boldly listen!
