- Just in case I don't get a chance to bring this up on a future show... Matty and Jessica both thought my criticism of "Sex and the City's" opening montage was unfair, or at least nitpicky. That's fine, but my point wasn't so much that the montage was offensive (it's not). I just thought it was indicative of my larger problem with the film, which is that Michael Patrick King couldn't find a satisfactory way to really translate the show to the big screen.
- I think I may have referred to Michael York's character in "Logan's Run" as Logan 6. He's actually Logan 5
