I agree. I used to watch Siskel and Ebert on PBS in the 70's. I still remember their great reviews of The Deer Hunter, Star Wars, and their famous disagreement over Apocalypse Now. I haven't watched for some time now. It was never the same without Gene.

I assume that Ebert's health problems have something to do with it also:

After seeing that interview, I respected him even more. [Happytears]
