I am totally using that.

This is so great! I hope to see more comic reviews of shows!

Love this piece Matt!  Please do more like this!


PS - It was great to finally meet you last week.

This piece is not only very cool in it's own right, but also very inspiring to the possibilities of different ways to report news! Great job!

 I love this!

Thanks for the great review!  I agree ... more comic reviews. 

I didn't see the flirting, tho.
