    Adam Chitwood, I’m with you, in that it’s been a tough week. Watched The Fisher King once 20 years ago–just remember it started out awkward, but greatly improved as it went on. Going to find that one again and watch it. Thanks for a good podcast on Robin Williams.

    Another great podcast guys, ditto to ‘thatguy’ – great to hear Perri join the show.

    Given 3 choices it’s almost impossible to choose recommendations based on the body of Robin’s work but I think you nailed it under the circumstances. I only saw World’s Greatest Dad about 6 months ago and was totally fascinated, once again by the swerve-ball he delivers with that performance and the subject matter.

    Shame that none of you had got around to checking Popeye out, I would have been really interested to hear your take on that. I watched it just a week or 2 before his death out of curiosity and despite its shortcomings I was taken aback at the ambition of the film, I didn’t think it was half as bad as it’s made out to be, it’s actually quite bold. in some ways a very unique picture and possibly way ahead of its time.
