Good Idea Badly Done

If the phony dialogue between parties along with the horrible phony accents were eliminated these would be OK. As they are I can’t listen to them anymore. The creator of the series doesn’t seem to realize that his audience is sophisticated enough to accept a podcast that deals with the subject matter in a straight forward manner unadorned with imagined dialogue.

Corny but interesting

Love the details behind each H2H battle. They unearth some interesting facts. Most of the recreated conversations come off as cheeseball, though.

Out of ideas

Was great until it started running out of ideas, and then when they decided to reair the whole Netflix/blockbuster series INSTEAD of just an episode with the “updated” information
