  1. Hey guys,

    Love the show. But…I can’t believe that nobody noticed or brought up the fact that you can quite easily see the “tow line” that was attached to the van that was pulling the bus as it exploded in front of the “Binocular Building” on Main Street. Looks like wire removal was not part of the budget, or maybe nobody cared. Check it out next time you watch that scene, and you will see the cable connected from the van to the bus.

    Also, some of the “undercranking” was a little too Keystone Kops for my taste. Otherwise, great flick.

    Keep up the great podcasts.
