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 Thor: The Dark World from 2013, and joining Tim to talk about the Asgardians’ battle against some falling shoes is musician and podcaster Paul Abbott. What will they find to say about Christopher Eccleston’s mastery of disguise, Roy from The IT Crowd falling victim to his own catchphrase, and ITV News being presented by the cast of My Two Dads, and what does any of this have to do with Phil Coulson’s career options as a rubber-faced funnyman?

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.
Paul has been a guest on Tim’s other podcast Looks Unfamiliar – talking about The Compleat Beatles, Zeeb And The Martians, Crab E. Crab, Rock Lords: Narlies, the Commodore Plus/4 and The Late Night Funster Show – which you can find here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
