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 Iron Fist. first seen in 2017, and joining Tim for a chat about Danny Rand scandalising high society by walking around barefoot is musician Paul Abbott. What will they find to say about whether Iron Man also has an Iron Fist, whether you would prefer to have your hand glow yellow or red (or white) and just how many mystical far-off lands there actually are in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what does any of this have to do with being taught guitar by Donovan at a ‘retreat’? 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. Why not get one from that Bleecker St. deli that was mentioned in an obvious setup for Doctor Strange that didn’t end up going anywhere?
