  • Gokul G in from New Zealand writes in "Hello Peter and the crew of the daily /Film pod :)  A question for all you review writers. When you are writing a review do you prefer to do it in silence or do you have music/the tv running in the background.   I write movie reviews for fun on my blog and I find that I can't really concentrate if there is any music or sound in the background.   PS loving Chris' advice corner and the theme song is just a sweet sweet bonus.   Regards"
