Great Friends Make a Great Podcast
I enjoy fantasy and science fantasy movies quite a bit, and DragonReel is right up my alley, as it should be. The host, Chris, is someone I’ve known and respected a long time (the other co-hosts Sharon and Pete as well), and everyone who participates in these explorations of the world of fantasy film really knows their stuff. I am glad to have participated in one such ‘cast (It’s Showtime!) and am happy to give this podcast a high recommendation.
I love this podcast. I'm a huge fan of fantasy and films and of course, fantasy films so this is a must for me. An intelligent and fun group who stand by their opinions but always give even the worst films a chance. I can't suggest it enough if you are a fantasy fan. I would have given 5 stars but my sole complaint is that the sound is often a problem as the group uses Skype to record. I completely understand why but it can be an issue. Still amazing show.
