Storyline

Following the classic format from the original PBS days of Sneak Previews (1975), this new PBS show has Christy Lemire and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky reviewing the latest films and argue their opinions. In addition, the renowned film critic who helped create this TV show genre, Roger Ebert, contributes his own reviews in his own section. Considering his health problems have robbed him the ability to speak, Ebert's written reviews are read by guest speakers ready to give him a hand. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

On the way to becoming a great show
5 August 2011 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

The show consists of three regular critics, Roger Ebert, Christy Lemire, and Ignatiy Vishnevetsk. Ebert, of course, is always superb, providing the just right mix of information, background, and personal opinion on every show he reviews. Unfortunately, we don't get to see as much of him as we would wish. Unfortunate, but not catastrophic.

The other two critics who host the show are unique and superb in their own right. They only lack one small ingredient that Siskel and Ebert brought together naturally. Somehow, they were able to give voice to just about every person who might want to go to a movie: Ebert, representing the mainstream moviegoer; and, Siskel the esoteric highbrows. I believe that Christy and Ignaty have a little of both in each of them. Unfortunately, sometimes they both sound like hoi polloi and sometimes they both sound like aristocrats. Somehow, they need to make sure that every review speaks to everyone. Siskel and Ebert accomplished this organically, but it needs to happen regardless of how.
