"Epic vs Apple" has finally arrived, and as Tim Sweeney now famously said, we're in for some "fireworks"!

Like a reunion special for a beloved TV series, Epic v Apple takes a victory lap "replete" with cameos, inside jokes, references to the series heyday and more.

It. Was. Inevitable...in Virtual Legality.
