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 Ant-Man from 2015, and joining Tim to talk about Scott Lang falling down a procession of plugholes is quizmaster Ben Baker. What will they find to say about Avon Barksdale’s post-The Wire career trajectory, George Clooney’s ant leadership qualities and the hot trending hashtag #Cornish4Duck, and what does any of this have to do with what time the Lost finale was actually on? 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. It’ll be even better value if you throw one of Hank Pym’s enlarger discs at it.
Ben has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about TV Mayhem, The Onion Bag, Fiendish Feet, the early internet craze for misidentifying every comedy song as ‘by’ Weird Al Yankovic, Bingo Brown, and the International Youth Service penpal scheme here, ITV’s daytime nostalgia show Looks Familiar here, Toksvig, The Whizzkid’s Guide, Mysteries Of Old Peking, Mo-Ho-Bish-O-Pi, Go (the 1999 film), and Making Your Own TV Listings Magazines here, Mr T’s Christmas Dream,There’s Something Wrong In Paradise, God In The House, To Hell With The Devil, Highway, The Flint Street Nativity, the 1990 Bullseye Christmas Special, Adam And Joe’s Fourmative Years and TFI 1998 here, the original version of Now – The Christmas Album here, and Bernard And The Genie here.
