High quality show!
Show has been around for a long time! Educational show, cast member have great chemistry!
I love the fact that this podcast is intelligent but not condescending. Unlike other podcasts, I don't feel like I'm being talked down to. I feel like I'm in the room, intelligently discussing the newest films from angles I had not previously thought of.
