    Are there any spoilers in the podcast? Or should I wait until I see the film in order to listen to it?

    Omg i thought you guys only posted on YouTube and there are so many episodes here. I’ve been binge watching so many episodes! I wish I could be in a podcast like that one day 🙂

    • YEAH! Glad you found them.

      We recently stopped doing the show on YouTube because we were having too many technical difficulties with the live streams. Also this way allows us to edit the episodes so that we can put the best product out there for you guys. I’m glad you like them so much. Which episodes have been your favorite?

  • Sigh… for me Dispicable Me 3 was another dismally disappointing entry in this disappointing series.

    The villain was funny and I enjoyed the overall design of his character and lair.

    Other than that, this movie feels like several 5 minute shorts that were stitched together in order to try and form a coherent thought. There’s barely any depth to the characters or their struggles and triumphs. The stakes as usual seem incredibly low, which leaves me uninvested.

    It says a lot about your franchise when the side kick characters, the Minions, are your biggest selling point. Which is sad, because despite some truly funny moments by these little guys, their every other joke is laced with sexual or potty humor. They’re also unashamedly rotten, setting a bad example for kids.

    Anyway. Rant over. I should no better by now than to watch these. They always leave me wanting so much more.
