A few of the questions have been focus on the movie blogging world, like how to get into movie blogging, the press screening, etc..So I thought I'd add one more.  You always hear about the many set visits you guys attend, and was curious how that works, meaning, how do the studios set them up, does the cost come out of your pocket, do the studios pay for it, do you get to interview the cast one on one, or is it a press pool, type thing where questions are thrown out.”

In The Mailbag: Kolin Singh writes in “Hey Peter and the gang,  My question this week is about press screenings. I was curious about how they work. - How do you hear about them? - Who gets invited? - Are you allowed to bring anyone? - How early do you have to be? - How often does the theater get completely full? - Are there ever any Q&As with cast and/or crew? - Lastly, are they worth going to? I'm sure they're free and that's a big plus, but is it worth it considering you'll probably have to get there super early for good seats and sitting with so many people could cause problems with Phones, chatting, etc.  Love the show and keep up the great work everyone!”
