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 Jessica Jones, first seen on Netflix in 2015, and joining Tim to talk about Jessica swapping a life of costumed superheroics for drunkenly pulling cars out of tow zones is academic Miriam Kent. What will they find to say about David Tennant’s bits of purple clothing, where Peter Parker falls on the Nerd Scale, and whether a back alley punchup is more realistic than Iron Man punching another Iron Man in the sky, and what does any of this have to do with Netflix’s other unbreakable heroine? 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. Just don’t give the one with whiskey in to Trish by mistake.
It’s Good, Except It Sucks goes deeper into the dark world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s street-level characters with Daredevil here, Luke Cage here, Iron Fist here, The Punisher here and The Defenders here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
