Fix - yes please ,

Macbeth

I love every episode, but someone busted out Gargamel. I could not stop laughing.

Great Dune deep dive

I really enjoy the Dune discussion, I’ve seen the movie and currently reading the book. I found this episode very thought provoking. Can’t wait for more.

Invite someone who liked the movie pls

Some interesting discussion about Dune in the first episode, but as a fan of the book and movie it would have been nice to have someone who actually liked the film in the discussion. As is, this first episode came across like a laundry list of complaints, some I agree with but A LOT of nit-picks. I have heard from plenty of people who find plenty to be excited about in the movie. I hope future episodes have more for the fans of the adaptations.
