  • Just listened today while running reports at work – I appreciate the kind words about my blog and Eclipse series, thanks guys! Excellent discussion too, I was wondering how you were going to handle two films in one episode. Now I wonder how you'll handle the big epics like Fanny & Alexander, Human Condition or Berlin Alexanderplatz?!?! Multi-part episodes? Dare I even suggest, cliff-hanger endings that compel us to listen next week?
