    I do enjoy listening to the podcast every week. This was uploaded pretty fast. I guess the holiday had something to do with it.

    Okay, I don’t agree that this was the best episode, though it was action packed. I liked the whole choice of premium by Fet. However, I’m not sure there were too many other things to like about the episode.Though it seemed “cinematic”, it seemed like a pretty bad movie. And I say this as someone who was really starting to appreciate the last few episodes. It seemed like a B movie. That’s not necessarily all bad, but, yeah, this was kinda bad.

    I have to admit that I thought Sam (Sean Astin) would go out another way, maybe going out and running interference for the rest of them as they made their escape. Fet’s move was a surprise. By the way, I can already see that the Dutch character will be annoying, hopefully not as annoying as Gus. Gus seems like he’s trying to hard to be tough. Anyway, I’m off to bed. I hope next week is better now that most of the Scoobie gang is together.
