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 Winter Soldier from 2014, and joining Tim to talk about Black Widow adopting the cunning disguise of ‘a hoodie’ to fight an old computer is writer Stephen O’Brien. What will they find to say about The Robert Redford Seal Of Approval, the warning signs of a potential kick-off in a lift and whether the late seventies Captain America films were preferable to a blank screen, and what does any of this have to do with realising Alan Dale’s in a film before Alan Dale does? 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. You could even do Black Widow’s ‘vending machine’ escape manoeuvre while you’re at it.
Stephen has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about The Office (the Steven Moffat one), LM magazine, You Can Do The Cube, Brilliant (the band), The Beachcombers and other last-minute ITV emergency schedule replacement standbys, and The Morecambe And Wise Board Game, which you can find here and about what it was like to watch The Box Of Delights on its initial broadcast here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
