Well produced podcast

I liked the style of this podcast. The way it entwined the original incident with the movie was cool. There were some parts that were a bit sketchy i.e Robert shaw finding his dad dead seemed to be shoehorned in to the story and then forgotten about. Also the relationship between shaw and Richard Dreyfus could have been more in depth rather than ending on the drink slapping. Still, I enjoyed the series

15 minutes in, and I'm done

Blimey charlie get to the story, padding and adverts, which are inserted into the narrative, a lot. So 15 minutes and that's a listener lost! Did I mention the adverts!!!!

its not really jaws is it..

i was excited to come across this as jaws is one of my all time favourite films "BUT" i think the adverts are too much and too long and felt i haven’t learned anything new about jaws.
it should be called " steven spielberg and adverts"
I’ve decided not to listen to the rest as i'm sure i'd find it annoying.
