Great stuff!

Been listening since the very first episode and it’s always a fun and informative time! Love the banter between Sol, Allan and the guest hosts, and with some incredibly insightful discussion about film. Highly recommended!

My favourite

Every Monday a popular film or series goes under the academic eye of Allen Turing, it's evaluated and brought into context by Sol Harris, and sometimes Calvin Dyson - whose Bond videos originally brought my attention to this ace podcast - plays the wildcard. Most episodes of Diminishing Returns are themed around the source of an upcoming sequel or remake, but I'm partial to the classic film episodes and I'm sure the podcast is best known for the great series where Calvin lovingly defends each James Bond film against his ambivalent-or-worse co-hosts. Be prepared to hear certain well-loved films vilified before your very ears! However, even the harshest reviews are perfectly sincere and treated with easygoing banter worthy of the Ricky Gervais Show. Always a relaxing listen which could also be very informative for the right people, I strongly recommend Diminishing Returns.

Fantastic!

Keep me a-float when I’m at college and trying to get through some work I’ve procrastinated doing for the past month. Love the banter in the podcasts and they always other a different opinion to a movie that is different to most other people’s. (They also did a request I made for ‘American Beauty’ which I was very happy about!).
