Replace Mary please!

Mary is an annoying, horrible female tv “critic.” She brings nothing to the conversation aside from her vitriol. The male critics (Mark, Glen and Justin) bring so much knowledge and insightfulness. I could listen to them all day. Intelligent and thoughtful criticism on their part. Mary is giving females a bad rap with the drivel that comes out of her mouth. Are there no witty and smart female journalists in Los Angeles available that can replace her? Anne Thompson, Joyce Eng and Perri Nemiroff blow her out of the water with their film analysis. Can they be invited on the podcast instead?

One of my favorites

I enjoy this podcast. The conversation is thoughtful and interesting, and it’s clear the hosts have done their homework.

Without Justin Chang this is garbage

The rest of the folks mostly babble and digress without offering any insights.
