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: Civil War from 2016, and joining Tim to talk about Earth’s Mightiest Heroes having a bit of a shoving match in an airport car park is comedian and musician Mitch Benn. What will they find to say about Scarlet Witch throwing a building at Donald Trump, the parts of the comic they couldn’t do in a blockbuster movie and Spider-Man finally gaining the inability to shut up, and what does any of this have to do with ‘Spider-Dad’? 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. If it’s expanded with one of Ant-Man’s giant-size disc things then all the better frankly.
Mitch has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar, talking about Nobody’s House, Don’t Stand So Close To Me ’86 by The Police, Cyborg and Muton, Orion, Two Stage Self-Assembly Ice Cream Cones and Get Stuffed here; 54321, Logan’s Run The Series, Matchbox Zoomy Balloonies, Action Man’s Atomic Man and Bullet Man, King Swamp, and fifties nostalgia in the seventies here; and Monday Morning 5.19 by Rialto, The Laughing Prisoner, Oh Baby by Rhianna, Pocketeers, O.T.T. and the original pre-Geoffrey incarnation of Rainbow here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
