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’ epic battle against some falling shoes is musician Paul Abbott. What will they find to say about Christopher Eccleston’s sideline as a master of disguise, Roy from The IT Crowd falling victim to his own catchphrase, and ITV’s main news bulletin 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? 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. We promise not to just throw it into that recursive time loop thing where nobody is quite sure how it actually works.
