    Well, I don’t know whose idea it was to tape this show before a live audience but I think it was an awful idea, it takes away the extraordinarily intimate camaraderie Siskel & Ebert shared, made it more of a performance than a conversation. This was the first episode filmed before an audience (I’ve watched them all up to this point), and I hope it’s the last, but I suspect it’s not. Anyway, their insistence that the best movie of 1989 wasn’t even nominated (Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing) certainly holds up 30 years later, and I think Roger’s suggestion that Field of Dreams will be remembered and Gene’s suggestion that Driving Miss Daisy will not, has come to pass.
