Amazing!

You guys are FANTASTIC! This podcast is so entertaining and is so enjoyable to listen to. After finding this podcast I have been binging all day for the last 3 days. THANK YOU

hey yo joe ,

Fun pod covering a great time for movies...

Pros:
1) Great movie era, strong library of episodes/movies already recorded and available for listening.
2) A wonderful self exercise you can do with a spouse, friends & even solo and rate along.
3) Fun/funny side convos between some of the hosts that are relatable.
4) Movies seem fairly rated.

The only detractors for this podcast are:
1) some of the hosts aren’t entirely entertaining and come off a bit dry.
2) The “mix” has been off lately. Very much a “groupthink” vibe going on that bleeds into the review and enjoyment. See next point.
3)A little on the “woke patrol” side of things, but that’s very “of the times.” Everyone’s got a soapbox I suppose. Often times I think the era and social norms of the 80/90’s are lost on a few of the hosts.

I started with Rog and “Big D,” loved the chemistry and friendship between them. Since this became a popular pod some personalities have been added, some for good, some for bad. Rog’s ugly divorce has certainly left a mark and void. That all said, there should be a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy.

Overall I’d recommend this to anyone who likes the 80/90’s. They do a lovely job with their TV coverage as well. But similar gripes exist there.
