Thandrenn ,

Informative and interesting.

JR's been around for a while and knows his stuff. You can learn a lot from these. The only downside is JR's occasional old-man gripes about "Today's generations" and his frequent tirades and arguments with himself. He'll often just go off having imaginary arguments with himself and people on Twitter or whatever. He also tends to frame stuff in an effort to make himself look guiltless. Still enjoy the show though.

Oneraidernation ,

JR is a whiner.

Good content for the most part but JRs bitterness towards seemingly everybody gets a bit tiresome after a while.

Yuhness ,

Good content but

Way to many ads.
