    I enjoyed the show and Stephen was the best. Your ego never got in the way of the points you wanted to convey, and the opportunity to skewer a movie…like A Single Man…were not gratuitous as it sounded with others.

    Frankly, most reviewers need to learn that we don’t care whetehr they ‘liked’ a movie. They want to hear observations about what they THOUGHT about the movie and it’s parts/ its whole. The othe guy sounded too often like an apparel saleperson I knew who only sold things that were colors she liked…and if it was a color she did NOT like, ignored. I pointed out that the customer does not care whether she liked or hates green. Whether the garment was quality, fit, flattering, useful…that is what mattered. It’s a thin line with reviewers but most of the time I despise ‘reviews’ because the reviewers get in the way and are so busy trying to be clever that they become small. Not Becker. I enjoyed your contribution.

    PS/FYI: The reason Krys Boyd is so good at what she does is that she does not EVER get in the way. She is a conduit. That’s what I mean. She enables you to learn from her guests rather than ever competing with them. It can be a thin line in reviews, but I always know when it’s been stepped over.
