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 One-Shots – a series of Blu-ray only short films that accompanied some of the earlier movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and joining Tim to talk about The Consultant, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor’s Hammer, Item 47, Agent Carter and All Hail The King is writer Jim Sangster. What will they find to say about the correct pronunciation of ‘lov-er-ly drugs’, The Coen Brothers kicking men in the bollocks and Matt And Luke Goss’ status in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what does any of this have to do with the Hardcastle And McCormick theme music? Get listening and find out!
