Mando!!!

These guys always make me laugh, and even though I might not watch or read everything they talk about, I’m always entertained and like to hear what they think. I always hear Chris Ryan shouting this review title when I watch the Mandalorian, and I like their jokes and how they play off each other, you can tell they’re good friends. Justice for Mindhunter!

Blue chip podcast, I’ll never unsubscribe

Been listening to these guys since “Hollywood Prospectus.” Come for the smart takes on the industry and cultural criticism, stay for the long-running bits and their lived-in, real relationship. This is a show that rewards steady listening, and even if I don’t care about the specific show being discussed, I always get something out of it.

Chris Ryan remove

Chris Ryan has an obnoxious voice. And anytime he is on the Rewatchables it’s almost unbearable to listen to it. I think both of these men are intelligent. I’ve been listening to them since Hollywood perspective but Ryan is the weak link. He’s just too Beta simp.
