I need to say that I voted this show a 10 because there is no measure of comparison to a show of this nature, not even on the Sundance channel. Read on, for my letter to AZN TV executive Scott Wheeler: After giving it a shot, I now TiVO Eugene Lee's Popcorn Zen. His "everyman" Generation Y commentary is sometimes a bit corny, but he balances well with his director interviews. The content of the show is (please forgive the ubiquitous cross-cultural reference) like ordering the combination sushi plate at one of the better restaurants in the area. While I may not enjoy an individual segment, I know that Eugene and the show's creators will round out the hour with features that will make me think, make me sad, make me angry, or make me confused. These are emotions that Hollywood does not often evoke in me, as American film (with some exceptions) has become, over the years, pedantic, formulaic, and predictable. When I watch Popcorn Zen, I don't know what I'm going to see. I give this show very high marks, and I hope it continues to be successful. I am a dedicated viewer.
