Vik is Pure Poetry

I love the episodes with cast and crew interviews. I LOVE the more recent episodes in which Vik goes through the episodes by himself. His passion is unmatched, and none of his cohorts were up to his level. Every podcast doesn’t have to be a speculative conversation. A concise monologue is just fine with me.

Foregrt about it

Absolutely brilliant a true lover of the show, Vik your passion takes along for the ride makes feel like we are part of the cast bravo keep up the great work.

SFG_Fan ,

So so

I really liked these guys for the first few episodes. The College ep really blew it for me. They missed the mark so many times. Peters not killing Tony; not understanding the connection between the busts. Come on, guys.
