Disappointing

I thought this would be a serious review of costumes in movies, and I was really looking forward to listening, but i have not been able to make it through an episode and I’ve tried 3 so far. The hosts don’t seem to bother to put much effort into researching what they’re talking about, it feels very disorganized and just a lot of sitting around drinking and laughing. I was very disappointed and had to turn it off it was so frustrating. If you’re looking for a serious, interesting and well researched review of movie costumes this is sadly NOT the podcast for you.
