More Bluey Content

Listen, I’ve been a fan since the beginning. You guys are great. But I was only compelled to write this review because I was so excited to hear you talk about Bluey TWO EPISODES IN A ROW. It’s basically the best crossover event since the Jetsons met the Flintstones. Anyway, keep it up, excited for the midterms, and looking forward to hearing your take on Muffin.
