Really appreciate all the work Mike puts in
I love the show - very much looking forward to new episodes this holiday season. It feels amazing to know that I'm not the only one who remembers some of these off-the-wall holiday specials. And I appreciate Mike's willingess to weave through some of the sometimes-awful programming to find themes and meaning that explain why the holidays are so special to many of us.
I love the analytical and insider information that is given on the show. It is clear that a quick Wikipedia review isn’t the backbone of each episode. I must admit that i have only listened to the episodes for shows and movies that I have seen, but am diligently working to fill in the gaps. Great job
Love listening to Mike and his guests talk about different shows. Love all the different takes on them. And it looks like his guests miss the icy patch every time!
