Add Back the Science

I feel like this show has gotten progressively less science-y as it’s gone on. Many recent episodes seem to spend almost no time actually talking about the science of the movie in question — just talking about it, recapping, and patting their own backs.

Ads are too loud

Great show. Why are the ads triple the volume of the show? Very annoying and ineffective.

Intro turned into the whole show

There used to be a lot more and diverse content in each episode. Now I feel that they spend too much time talking about what the guest has studied and specialized in more than the movies. By the time any part of the movie is discussed, you’re already 2/3 of the way through the episode. Coupled with the lack of diverse topics talked about in each movie, it’s turned more into a guest talk show. I come away knowing a bit about one small part of a movie.
