Guest Programmer(s) in General Discussions Posted March 18, 2014 Never have cared for guest programmers or The Essentials guests. Just show me the movie. Learned a long time ago that just because someone is a good actor or director, it does not mean they are good at anything else, such as picking out or describing classic movies. Also, seems the guest programmers frequently pick the same movies that are already being shown over and over and over. Same for The Essentials.
