Good show, but a bit unorganized
After listening to the first five episodes, (and it could be because it's still early in the show and Kumail is learning his format), but the show just seems a bit too unorganized. The host and his guest don't talk about the episodes themselves in much depth and instead focus around ideas and themes the episode brought up. I belive covereing the episodes in greater depth and having a more set format for different segments would lead to a better flow. Currently it feels more like he's just recording conversations rather than making a show, if that's what he's going for then obviously he's nailed it. But unfortunatley it leads to my mind wandering and losing focus on what they're talking about. Kumails enthusiasm for the series is evident in his voice. My favorite part of the shows is when he uses his wealth of knowledge to poke holes in the show and lampoon on the scenarios that would later become cliches in later seasons. Many Podcasts that review episodes of older series have been popular latley as dedicated fans are willing to listen to others rave about their favorite show (Go Bayside!, Whose Afraid of the Podcast?) and Kumails is no different. I don't think it's the best I've heard, but Kumail is a talented comedian and good enough host, with some fixes to the orginization this could be easily become one of my favorite podcasts.
