Great idea for a show

OMG what a great idea for a show. I love watching movies with my friends and that is exactly what it feel like. These guys have so much to say about the movies they are watching and if they don't, their tangents are hilarious.

Awesome Concept

I spent the greater part of my 20’s sitting on couches and watching movies while cracking wise with friends. Congrats on figuring out a way to keep on doing this and make it entertaining. Hilarious, witty, and highly recommended!!

Jlanders ASPodcast ,

These two are hilarious!

This is one hell of a movie companion podcast. Joe and Todd have great chemistry and the little shots they take at each other flow smoothly with a judo-like style leaving my sides splitting. Keep up the good work guys.
