Lonesome Dove

Such a rare treat to hear a novel like Lonesome Dove to get such a spotlight today, really enjoyed the analysis! The rest of the series next? Maybe McCarthy’s border trilogy?

Sramsram ,

Always worth a listen

These two are enthusiasts who really know their stuff. A great way to find out what to watch and catch up on industry news. Even when my tastes diverge, it’s time well spent. Quibbles: Chris, the yelled impersonations are awful (but thankfully rare) and note to both of you: the Disney Ploos joke? Get over it.... Still, I do like this show a lot.

Dumeisterjp ,

Worth an occasional listen but a lot of waffle

It’s interesting ; the hosts are erudite , amusing and informative when talking about actual content they’ve watched
But , there is a good deal of filling in with ‘light hearted banter ‘ it loses momentum . Frustrating that actual reviews take so long to be discussed and raked over. That’s the good part .
Some tighter editing and it could be a winner ..
