Ahhh.. who can ever forget Siskel and Ebert arguing? Some thought it was for the show.. but it was real.
Watch as one calls the other an [censored].




But some of it was more light hearted bantering...

I still remember watching Sneak Previews on PBS as a kid.
We couldn't believe they would air a show about critics watching movies.
My family and I were instantly hooked, and we couldn't wait for the next episode.
From that humble beginning, Siskel & Ebert created an empire.
RIP Mr. Ebert.

I saw a segment on the National News (I think NBC) about Roger. I didn't realize his serious facial deformity after his cancer treatment. That was SO sad ! He didn't look like the Roger we know. Man I feel even worse now about his passing... he was such a great guy who didn't deserve that "C crap" !! frown frown
