    Great puzzle - I love the FINDINGNEMO
    30A FINDINGNEMOAcademy Award-winning 2003 film - and what you could be doing to the * answers in this puzzle
    theme 🐠! I got stuck on POLANER
    12A POLANERJam b(r)and (EDITED: added an R because otherwise this clue is waaay off).

    but had a great time trying.
    FYI some have suggested avoiding the various forms of ODSON
    19D ODSONBinge-watches, perhaps
    or finding ways to clue them more sensitively - the way you clued it is pretty common but just a thought

      Thank you and I never want to be insensitive. Try the alternative now.
      • Mike D 4:04 · 4 months ago
        Nice - I didn’t mean to call you out just thought you might appreciate knowing!
      • hbxwords constructor · 4 months ago
        I'll modify that a bit - thanks!

          Thaaaaaaanks!

          No, this is exactly what we need to know; if I could edit the grid post-publication I'd change that to ORSON / TOKER.
