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 Luke Cage, first seen in 2016, and joining Tim to talk about the only superhero with his own official app is writer Jim Sangster. What will they find to say about how to tell whether a shirt is ‘fly’ or ‘superfly’, the relative merits of The Low End Theory by A Tribe Called Quest and the long-term cultural influence of Redhead Kingpin And The F.B.I., and what does any of this have to do with Bobby Farrell out of Boney M? 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.
