Fills a very important hold in the podcast film discussion field

I love the pace of this show and the guests they feature. They are really given the opportunity to share their life's work and the people who influenced them. As the viewer, you're really able to marinate in their stories.

Jessie can be a bit much for me and doesn't seem to fit as naturally into to the overall tone of the show.

Great Show That Needs Some Tweaking

Leonard is a great and expierenced interviewer who lets the guest speak. His young and immature daughter does not. We tune in for the guest, not so much the host. Also stop fawning over the people you interview and saying how great they are and how everything is your favorite all time yada yada The reference to things not being "real" or cartoon is offensive too. Maybe her dad is trying to help her carry on the family business, but she needs to read these reviews.

Would be 10 stars if it was solely Leonard

If you read through the bulk of these reviews, they all say the same thing- Jesse maltin’s gotta go. Unfortunately she is Leonard’s daughter (the fruit, it appears, falls a couple miles away from the tree) so she probably isn’t going anywhere. Here’s my plea to the editor- please, please edit her out so we can actually hear the guests and the wonderful Leonard Maltin. My god, they might as well rename this podcast “THE JESSE MALTIN STORY: ALL ABOUT ME”
