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 Captain America: The First Avenger from 2011, and joining Tim for a chat about Steve Rogers winning the Second World War by himself on his own of his own accord is film historian Melanie Williams. What will they find to say about the Things Buried In Ice Cinematic Universe, a half-dressed Robert Downey Jr. confiscating phones and which of them gets to go on a date with Hayley Atwell, and what does any of this have to do with an ‘Embuffening Machine’? 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.
Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. I wouldn’t advise using The Tesseract to heat it though.
You can find the edition of It’s Good, Except It Sucks with Hanna Flint on Agent Carter here. You can also hear Stephen O’Brien on Captain America: The Winter Soldier here and Mitch Benn on Captain America: Civil War here.
Melanie has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about Kelly Monteith, Aubrey, Kellogg’s Rise And Shine, Patty’s World, Mustard Mind, The Man Who Juggled Blocks On Variety Shows and Rimmel Coffee Shimmer; you can find it here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
