Although due to the pandemic of Covid-19, there are many movies that has been delayed, so there might be some movies and shows whose previews are not yet ready.
On the other hand, all the panels in the show will be recorded in advance. As they are pre-recorded, there will be no fan interaction with the panelists in the show.
