    • Chelsea Robson

      Yay Milan! You have been a great fan over the years! We have always appreciated your comments!

      • Well, thank you! I have thoroughly enjoyed the 100+ podcasts over the past few years!

    Megamind. The much better version of Despicable Me.

  • Bob Smith

    Already over half a decade since this movie’s release? I’m feeling old.

    Also, the B-movie mentioned is Robot Monster.

    • Mason Smith

      Robot Monster! That’s it!

  • Rachel Wagner

    I’m tough on Dreamworks comedies but I like this. I think better than Despicable Me. Great podcast

  • Regarding motivation to stay fit: I will run 20 miles if Mason agrees to do another 100 cartoon impressions or read the entire script from “A New Hope” in the character voices. Morgan and Chelsea can decide who wants to do Princess Leia.

    Finally, they did a podcast on Mega-mind. I originally requested it almost 5 years ago when it first came out. This is probably Dreamworks best animation next to How to Train Your Dragon and Shrek. I wish they made a sequel.

    this is a very good episode! Mr. Schleifer should be a regular guest for the show. He is so fun!
