I Miss Vic
I’ve been listening for several years and the entire balance of the show is off without Vic. I’ll still listen and I’m still rating five stars for all the past joy the show has given me but it’s definitely less a fun listen now.
I enjoy their banter to an extent however at least fifty percent of every episode is a recap of the three host’s personal weekly goings-on. When (if) they reach a point when they’re discussing the film review it’s highly entertaining and provides a great deal of unique insight and perspective. The show lost something when Vic left. There was something about his gout/alcohol binge tales and general disdain for the source material that made the forty-five minutes worth it. Lately I find myself pushing the 30 second skip far more often.
Mike is fine…
… but Sonny and JVL are already straight men. Three straight men doesn’t make for compelling audio.
