Thank you for your most recent statement.

I appreciate you putting this out to other fans.

Excusable ,

Do you like the show or not?

I started this podcast under the assumption that it was going to be an in depth read of a show that I love done by two fans. In depth..yes! Analysis..yes!

Fans…? I seriously doubt it.

You spend more time complaining about your ‘favorite show’ than you do anything else. I’d rather hear your coffee choices than hear you rip into everything they did.

I don’t expect you to just pretend the show is perfect but I beg you to remember that you do like the show or you wouldn’t have started a podcast in the first place. Remember it’s the 80s, drop the politics and realize that a period piece will be period accurate. If you’re going to spend the whole time ripping apart one of the greatest shows ever produced by Netflix at least advertise it that way, your social media clips are vastly one sided compared to the actual content you put out.
