I'm a huge fan of Killer POV/Shock Waves, and my favorite part of the show is Elric discussing the deep cuts that normally get skipped over. This was a great first episode and I look forward to this weekly! Thanks guys.
I was hoping this would be a two hour conversation on possession but I was delighted by what I received! Can't wait for more episodes! If you love shockwaves/killerPOV you'll love this!!!
