Thank the Lord for small favors. Michael Phillips and Tony Scott (he should ditch the too-formal A.O.--this is about relating to people, folks) have debuted their new At the Movies format. It's fine by me. They are still a tad stilted--they've never worked together before. Phillips has more experience as a co-host than Scott. But they'll loosen up and let the fur fly. It already feels so much better. I hope it works. I like the idea of looking at past classics, too.
