Reel Reviews' first podcast published on October 17, 2004 - yes, podcasting in 2004!
After 10 years of no new episodes, AOL finally pulled the epsiodes from their servers.
Most links to the podcasts are now dead.
I keep this here as a record of one of the original podcasts.

    Those morons.
    I think it’s more to do with people not getting what Podcasting is about. I was going to help out by boycotting Netflix, but it’s not available in the UK.
    If I can, I’d like to ask here if there are any UK listeners who can recommend an online DVD service here.
    And Michael, what about Amazon. They do a DVD rental scheme. Maybe they will hook you up?

    Why not try Blockbuster’s program?

    I switched from NetFlix last summer and have been just as pleased with Blockbuster despite their slightly less selection of obscure films. They might be a bit hungrier for affiliates, as well.

    It’s because of your site (and Netflix Freak shareware) that I’ve signed up with Netflix.

    I’ve specifically put movies in my Queue because of your reviews.

    same here. Well, I’ve been with NetFlix for a couple of years. But my queue’s doubled in size since I started listening to Reel Reviews. Surprising they don’t see a connecton.

    A reply for Charlie (post 1). I have been using ScreenSelect in the UK for four months now. I think they are the biggest in the UK, and the deal seems as good as any (much better than Amazon in the UK). They have a huge list of obscure movies and actually supply them, rather than just listing them. As a fan of Japanese movies I can’t fault them. They are not great at supplying new release mainstream DVDs, but new foreign films come pretty quickly. I have not used any other online rental system, so cannot compare.

    Forget Netflix. Greencine is much better. They actually seem to care about movies, host screenings of rare films in SF, and have a great blog.

    Hey, thanks for the tip Scott. I had not heard of Greencine. Looking now.
