  • I LOVE this site. Great job revamping it. I am officially addicted. Thanks for putting it together. Can we expect more episodes from 1979 or are there any from 1978.

    • There’s at least one more episode from 1979, in which they talked about the best films of the decade. I am still waiting for that to be re-uploaded.

    • Thanks Bryan and Jesse…I am slowly getting there!

  • Why do the categories sections have more videos then the “Years” sections? For example, #Pulblic1979 has a lot more videos than “1979 – Sneak Previews”.

    • Actually, I shouldn’t have put “a lot more videos” but each section has different videos.

      • Hi Jeff, You caught me! I am probably two months behind listing the shows…maybe more. I received a lot of Ebert & Roeper shows, and I still haven’t categorized them by year. Let me see what I can do this month to catch up. My apologies to you and everyone else!

        • Understood. No problem, take your time…this site rules!! Thanks for the quick reply.
