  • Maria H writes in "Hi, I'm a newer listener but I've been reading your news feed in another podcast's news for about a year.    I listen to the podcast regularly and I'm interested to know if anyone has been watching Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan on Amazon and what their take is on it.  I'll confess that I binged it last night and found it excellent. The story line is very "today" and extremely compelling.  Think Homeland Season 1 (sorry, the rest are trash).    Just was wondering and if I missed a discussion on it, I'd love to have the link.  Thanks!"
  • Jason from Kuwait writes in "Good afternoon Peter.  Really enjoy the /film daily podcast, and the different personalities you and the crew bring to the show.   Hearing you recently discuss topics such as the difference between seeing movies at home or in the theatre, motion blurring, or adding reference modes to new TVs got me thinking that I have never really heard any of you explicitly say what you have for viewing setups at home (just the odd references here or there in general convos).   It might be interesting and give a little context to the above discussion to hear y'all directly address what you and the gang all currently use at home to view the majority of your TVs / Movies.  I am a regular listener, but I can't claim to have heard every show so apologies if you have discussed this before.  Again, enjoy the show. Thanks"
