I just discovered these guys and immediately subscribed. They keep it light and don’t seem as jaded or burned out as the guys over on Fanboy. They cover more titles as well. Not too cool for the room!

Content drags too much

An hour show only includes 10 mins of content. The host drags content to make the show longer and it makes it not entertaining.
