  1. Listening to it right now and looking forward to what is said about 4K TV discussion! Will comment more after I heard the new format.

  2. Great episode! It didn’t Hertz me at all! Keep it up! New format is fresh!

  3. Glad to hear Aaron is coming to his senses on The Force Awakens!
    Your schedule up until know has been very ambitious. I’m perfectly content giving up a 1-1/2 hour discussion of Lady Snowblood 2 as long as you put more into the deeper/important films.

    • *until now

      • Thanks! Yeah so far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s actually a bit of a relief. 🙂 We’ll have some deep shows and some light shows, and we’ll try to figure out ways to let people know what movies are on our radar.

  4. So who won the extra Hertzfeld bluray?
