TheTragicAnders ,

Tremendous range from 2 brilliant film critics

These guys are two of the hardest working and most prolific podcasters on film and movies. From their main show which reviews the recent film releases, background series on the film history that leads to certain film franchises (eg Star Wars) to retrospectives on cancelled TV shows, their quality and quantity is outstanding. Friendly and open, moving effortless from the highbrow to the decidedly low brow, Bibbs and Witney are the best.

definitely not dan ,
