Another incredible and informative episode. I love Network - so I was intrigued by this in depth discussion of the film.

 

Can I request another in-depth episode on the Jean Doumanian season is SNL?

Great episode. I haven't seen the movie in a while, and I don't think any pre-existing knowledge of it would be necessary to enjoy this.

Even though it strayed somewhat from the usual format, this was a fantastic ep. When Jake's enthusiasm is matched with a guest equally passionate and knowledgeable, great conversation results. I could have listen to another hour.

I think this was the best episode yet. It was different than the rest of the episodes but I loved the format. A really interesting topic mixed with a lot of data from both parties and clips that added to the trivia. Just a great all around episode. I've never seen NETWORK so I'm heading out to get it and pick up the book. Cheers!

This is why I love the Fogelnest Files. Jake finds ways to make listening to discussions of classic films like 'Network' just as fascinating as discussions on public access TV insanity.
