A fun start!
Was a little skeptical at first, but the first episode was actually enjoyable and informative! Looking forward to the next one!
Evolving into a great show
At first it was slightly awkward at times without much direction and some awkward moments but with every episode they keep improving and becoming more and more solid. Excited to see it only keep getting better!
You don't wanna miss this!
For a podcast that seemingly just started, it's a really great time. Having a girl as one of the hosts is also very refreshing for me, and the two guys are pretty funny, too. Start with maybe episode 7 or 8 if you're unsure since that's when the audio quality really improves. Now it sounds great, and I can't wait for the next episode. Give it a try, you won't be sorry if you're looking for a fun discussion about movies. I've learned a lot as well, so there's plenty to like with this one!
