"So, ya know, um..."
I got through 14:30 of one episode. That was absolute torture. I could tell during the introduction this might be a bad podcast but gave the creators a chance to hit some kind of groove. This project might be just for fun, but the creators Should do a public service and consider someone might actually listen. Try taking notes, make your point, and move to your next topic.
I like this podcast very much. It's simple and fun. Just like sitting with two of your friends and talking movies. I've enjoyed listening to the reviews of movies I love, and it has made me want to see movies new to me as well! Great job!
I have been listening to almost the first 50 movies, with the side trip to the Oscars in 2012. I am old enough to be your mom, so it is interesting to me to hear your perspectives on movies I have know all my life. Sometimes I am amused by something that you obviously don't have the same historical view, since you weren't around at the time, for example when you went on about the racism of a character in "In the Heat of the Night" because she referred to Mr. Tibbs as "Negro". I was around then and that was just how people spoke when they were trying to be PC. Racists would have used the other "N" word. There was no other term. This isn't a complaint, just an observation.
My complaint is that I would appreciate Mike using other adjectives besides the "F" word. I am sure he is an educated young man and has a fabulous vocabulary, but doesn't consider that the substantial use of an offensive word could be off-putting. I like the show enough to continue, but sometimes I wonder if I really want to.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.
