Weird complaints

This pod is decent enough but they always have something to complain about. Seems like everytime something happens different than how they think it should’ve, they always complain about it. They also talk with the pretentiousness of media members who think journalists are the most oppressed group in America

Oof

We get it you get screeners and you don’t like the show. “Im glad it was only 9 episodes because 10 would be too much”. Thanks for sacrificing yourself in reviewing this show. It was an ok show in the beginning now these two act like they are Hollywood insiders and their screeners did I mention they get screeners and the screeners are a day early than we get to see it. Blah blah blah I’m a critic snooze

Occasional4eyes ,

do they even like this show???

These two, particularly David, come across as completely unenlightened and half the time have details wrong about the episode they’re discussing. Seems like they watch an episode one time and think that imbues them with the authority to speak on the shows writing faults and strengths. Total misunderstanding of many of the main characters also, and just generally feels like the hosts don’t enjoy the show or talking about it at all, like it’s a chore. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and I find myself agreeing with them sometimes, but they just feel incredible/like they do not take much care in compiling an episode
