It’s Good, Except It Sucks is a movie by movie – and television series by television series – hurtle through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hosted by Tim Worthington with a series of superpowered guests.
This time it’s The Incredible Hulk from 2008, and joining Tim to talk about Bruce Banner’s struggle to control the raging beast that lives inside us all is writer Gary Bainbridge. What will they find to say about Edward Norton favouring Jim Wilson over Rick Jones, the reasons behind crediting a cast member as ‘Computer Nerd’, and the ridiculously complicated conceit of making a film in which the title character does not want to appear as the title character, and what does any of this have to do with Omar from The Wire‘s place in Marvel continuity? Get listening and find out!

You can find much more about my love of the less critically lauded corners of cinema, from Michael Caine and Elvis Presley movies to creaky old sci-fi and ‘Video Nasties’, in my book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
Gary has also appeared on Tim’s other podcast Looks Unfamiliar; you can hear the full show, including a section on bizarre seventies superhero movie Supersonic Man, here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
