The Great Allegiant Experiment

In March of 2016, Byrd and Trev underwent a daring and bold experiment in podcasting... to drop themselves smack dab into the middle of the Divergent film franchise.  They went and saw Allegiant, the latest movie in the series, without seeing the previous films, reading the books, or having even the smallest bit of passing knowledge of the plot.  Listen as they try to figure out what happened in this movie, what happened in the previous films, and what happens in the next and final film.  But be warned, these are the ramblings of madmen.
