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 Avengers Assemble from 2012, and joining Tim to chat about Iron Man, The Hulk, Black Widow, Thor, Hawkeye and Captain America teaming up to order some shawarma is writer Mark Griffiths. What will they find to say about The Hulk’s repertoire of ‘zingers’, the Studio 54 Avengers, and a big spreadsheet linking Ant-Man and some chips, and what does any of this have to do with Raymond Burr acting as a translator for Godzilla? 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. They probably do coffee at Shawarma Palace. Possibly. Depending on what shawarma actually is.
Mark has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar, talking about Five Minutes by Mainframe, The Bloke Who Pulled His Pants Down On Kilroy, Disneyland by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Charles Hawtrey as a vampire on Runaround, BBC Records And Tapes’ Off Beat Sound Effects, and missing the first episode of a new series of Doctor Who because you were at the Doctor Who exhibition in Blackpool; 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.
