Advertisements Wow, I saw the first episode and I couldn't believe how bad it was. That young guy was a complete joke. Count how many times in the first episode alone that he calmly said "I disagree completely", and then nothing. Zzzzzz. Probably about 20 times. In the days of Siskel/Ebert, Gene would have finally given up and made some playful attacks at Roger to at least keep things entertaining. Heck, even Roeper, would have finally said, "Ok, now you're just off your rocker"...something! The two reviewers they selected are honestly worse than ANY of the previous incarnations, and there were plenty. The entire show didn't connect with anything really. The flow didn't work, the banter was stale, they insert a review of The Third Man...why? It's the very first episode and you'd think they can at least cover more about Roger, etc. (I was fully expecting to at least see Roger or hear his advanced computerized voice that he's his real voice, but it never happened. Again, why?) Seems like such a simple show to screw up, and wow, did they ever.
