So much potential!

Some episodes are excellent; I enjoy the insights into film and TV. That said, I absolutely can’t stand the excessive use of “like” by some hosts. I had to turn off the episode on Last Christmas because it was too distracting and irritating.

Woof

Millennial woman here, who speaks like the hosts of this show. Their manner of speaking isn’t my problem.

It’s that these are people, who get paid to watch and write about movies, who over the course of their conversation miss the point EVERY TIME. I just stopped the Last Christmas episode, which is not a great movie like they said, but they’re discussing the lack of ghost logic in a Christmas movie that isn’t even really about the ghost. Just one example of nitpicking over small details that ultimately have no consequence in the movie itself. The analysis isn’t nuanced, smart, or put-together. Just ramblings of people who should know better who sound like they’re reacting to a movie for the first time. If I wanted to listen to that, I would just ask more of my friends about it. Ugh.

It cannot be said enough

Please read the reviews and curb the use of “like.” You are turning off listeners.
