There was a time when obtaining a movie to watch was simple.  You went to a video rental store and spent 90 minutes picking out just the right VHS or DVD.  With today’s streaming services like Netfllix, Crackle and Amazon On Demand, the legwork has been done for us…or has it.

In this episode, the PodCats discuss the pros and cons of streaming video and offer some suggestions of their own.

Is it the spicy pizza?  The flu?  Why is it so hot in here?  At first you think it’s just your imagination, but then you slowly realize to your horror… It’s the game.

Many people find certain games and movies difficult to experience, be it because of shaky cameras, left-handedness, or their inability to reconcile the Uncanny Valley of Kevin Spacey’s face in CoD.

In this week’s episode, the PodCats discuss some of their own experiences with these phenomena, and offer a tip or two to the those in need.
