It’s Good, Except It Sucks: Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) - hear Tim Worthington and Melanie Williams talking about it in It's Good, Except It Sucks.

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 to talk 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!
