Episode 744 – CNI’s Best of 2016!

It’s our Best of 2016! And just like last year, Jimmy sits down with The Beat’s Heidi MacDonald and good pal Jon Hoche to go over their 2016 favorites in comic books, TV and film. They didn’t read or watch everything released that year, so it’s just the Best of what they did read/watch. Fun discussions on great comics, their creators, TV shows, films, actors and more.

Jimmy has to fly solo this week since everyone is still away for Christmas! But he got the December co-host Jon Hoche and frequent co-host Emmy Potter to send in some audio reviews.

Many friends/listeners sent in their tributes/thoughts on it all. Thanks to Carrie, Kerri, Rachel, Emily, Emmy, Adam/Comfort, Rebecca, Qui, Shena, Erica, Katelan, Sina, Vera and Marta! I know many others wanted to as well and I thank you. Carrie Fisher was a legend and we all miss her. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
