Man, Death to Smoochy was one of the few podcasts that I listened to that week and then went back and watched the movie. Good stuff, but I really can't remember your assessment of BWM. I'll listen again...

It's an interesting point you bring up about over-saturation of movie trailers, TV spots, and the like, because the internet is absolutely crawling with wrestling taped results that absolutely adore giving away spoilers. I'll never get it either---these guys think they have to beat the other guys to hits to make money, read about what happened, then bitch and moan that wrestling sucks these days. Well, because you fawned over every twist and turn that ruined a showcase of entertainment that heavily relies on the element of surprise.

The worst part is I write for one of these sites that spoils episodes taped episodes of what I cover 4 and 10 days in advance and frequent two other websites, for other podcasting reasons, that spoil the hell out of everything. It's a mine field out there, I tell ya.

Great effort, but I would have loved more than 12 seconds of Rappe rambling about Game of Thrones and gotten her honest, journalistic opinion of the show.
