In The Mailbag: Troy H writes in:
“Hey Peter, Just want to say I am loving the videos on your YouTube channel, and still loving the podcast and listen to every episode without fail. The content about theme parks is valuable as my wife and I are travelling from Australia to visit Orlando and Anaheim in August to visit all the parks so all the insights and tips are gonna help immensely. I have resigned to the fact that I will be spending an insane amount of money in Batuu doing all the stuff in your videos. I have added to my watch lists and watched so many movies and TV shows based on recommendations from your team and value their diverse opinions on all genres. You are absolutely right about Cobra Kai, that show is amazing! Can’t wait for season 3. Some questions for the mailbag: Have you ever watched a movie which on first viewing was terrible, but subsequent viewings showed it to be much better? For me it was Clear and Present Danger, it was a yawnfest in the cinema but loved it when I watched it years later on DVD. Is there a movie that everyone raves about, is critically acclaimed but you personally found it to be boring/average? For me it was Usual Suspects. It was “okay” but not a masterpiece in my opinion. Keep up the great work.”
