Mr. M88 ,

Thoughtful Stuff

Discovered this looking for Black Mirror recaps, and have enjoyed the handful of eps I’ve heard. I’m also a Twilight Zone fan as it turns out, so looking forward to listening Matt’s TZ rundowns after I finish with the Black Mirror bonus eps.

Jake986050 ,

Love this

Great podcast, Matt does an excellent job!

Bwayjay ,

Wonderful! And inspiring too!

I think Matt and this podcast are terrific. I love the added trivia, the perspective of a first time viewer and the connections drawn between episodes and culture at large. I am totally inspired to watch all the other shows and movies included here as bonuses. Keep it up, Matt! You have a big fan here!
