Hard to take seriously

Just recently saw game changers, and trying to look at both sides for evidence, but their ep on it was hard to take seriously. I'm sure there is a lot of good info on other episodes but they really seem to get high of their own supply while innacurately generalizing the movie. So sensative to the other side they have to say words incorrectly. The whole thing was like your mom in a bathing suite. A real turnoff.
