    BRING BACK THE MOVIE REVIEWS!!!!!

    They are essential listening!! And only ten minutes! You can fit them in! Please bring them back!!!!

    Also, please bring back the overview in the beginning - it gives a better sense of what the stories are about and it's helpful to have a sense if I'll be interested in the whole issue or just a part of it from the outset.
