Love Firefly! Love the deep dive into the episodes. So much great information and great personalities but unfortunately one of the voices gives me a headache after a few minutes.
They missed the point
I was pretty desperate to hear content on one of my favorite shows, and sludged through as many of these podcasts just to learn some new tidbits of trivia (thanks Vinton). The female podcasters are … really painful to listen to and don’t provide anything worthwhile to the episode recap. I give all of them credit for making the podcasts but other than Vinton, the other hosts and their occasional guest kept missing the mark with their interpretation of scenes. And often they were really petty about the writing or character development on Firefly. I wish there was a way to remove all the other podcasters commentary except for Vinton. And yes, like other reviewers have mentioned, there’s a lot of annoying laughter and very loud screaming into the mike by the hosts. You’ve been warned.
Imagine being in a book club
There’s too much overanalysis from the podcasters that it felt like I was back in 9th grade English class trying to critique a Shakespearean play. Seemed like if they weren’t spoon fed the story or characters, they missed out on appreciating the great writing or storytelling. If not for Vinton and his behind-the-scenes trivia/ commentary, I would have given this podcast 1 star for the constant guffawing.
