Hello everyone and Happy New Year! Welcome to a brand new year of the Epic Film Guys podcast as we roll into our third year on the show. We are one-hundred twenty-five episodes in and it is all thanks to the amazing support of our fans and listeners. You guys are amazing and we love you!
This was one of the craziest recordings we've ever had- so much so that Patrons have access to an extra HOUR of content from this week's episode! Fire alarms, Justin's illness, and all sorts of random things tried to derail our recording of the Best Films of 2017, but it could not be derailed! We're here to count down our personal top tens for the year, as well as talking about our most disappointing films of last year.
Also this week, we're giving away stickers to the listeners who took part in Broncember, as well as all of our fans who got back to us with their most disappointing flicks of 2017. We also officially announce Livestream for the Cure 2.0 which is coming later in May, and the giveaway of the biggest-ever EFG swag bag once we hit 100 iTunes reviews! This year it's all about giving back to YOU, our amazing fans, and we love you all so much for all of your support. Thank you for listening! We'll see you at the movies!

Friends of the Show
We'd like to give a huge shout-out for a lot of the shows we're proud to call friends, and that we're proud to call ourselves fans of. We especially have to thank our brothers in Perth, Paul & Wayne of The Countdown Movie & TV reviews, who have opened us up to a huge audience halfway across the world. Particular thanks to Paul who has been an amazing friend and has been infinitely helpful in terms of getting honest feedback on the evolution of the show. A huge thank you to Emily from The Story Behind podcast, whose support and friendship have kept this show alive through some of its darkest days. A huge thank you to some of our biggest podcasting friends, from Mr. X at the Angry Old Man, Shane from Now That I'm Older, David from The Unwritable Rant, Adam from Everyone Has a Podcast, Ro from the World of Ro, the entire crew at Afterburn 739, Mat at the One Word, Go! show, Justin from So I Married a Movie Geek, and Deana from the Twisted Philly podcast. We're probably forgetting someone, so thank you to ALL of you! We truly do love and appreciate your support.
We also have to give a huge shout out to #PodernFamily for helping to increase our exposure, and safe to say without it we wouldn't have met a lot of the podcasters and fans we're proud to call friends. We also want to give a huge shout out to the #MoviePodSquad, a group of movie podcasters in the #PodernFamily who have come together for our mutual love of film.
