    Rebecca got Natalie to watch Freaks and Geeks for the first time and she loved it! Now we're both equally mad that it ended.

Fun and entertaining

If you watch and love older TV shows, these are fun to listen to. They talk about the cast, favorite or dramatic moments, themes, etc. One of my first choice podcasts. Thanks!!

Entertaining and Knowledgeable

They're funny, smart and really love TV. I learn a lot when I listen. Really appreciate hearing about these shows from people who really care about the subject matter. Please do The Cosby Show (you can skip all things Bill!)
