Like chatting with old friends
When I finished college, I was sad to leave behind a pal or two with whom I loved to stay up and chat about movies. We talked Star Wars, Star Trek, Mission Impossible, Lord of He Rings, Firefly, etc.... Listening to this podcast almost feels like reliving old times. The panels are neither too critical nor too laid back. All of the commentators are engaging, insightful, and fun! I only just discovered the SQPN podcasts, but I’ve already binge-listened to Jimmy Akin’s Mysterious World, and am now on the Secrets of Movies and TV. Definitely give them a try, whether you’re Catholic or not. You won’t regret it!
Although I missed Fr. Roderick’s input, I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion between Jimmy, Dom, and Fr. Cory. Deep thinkers, they all provided a very interesting analysis of a movie I’m still hoping to love.
