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 The Defenders from 2017, and Tim’s appearing as the guest, talking to musician Garreth Hirons about Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Daredevil protecting some dragon bones by punching buildings really bloody hard. What will they find to say about how far Daredevil is motivated by ‘pants’, why there is always one more Defender than you think, and whether downing eight bottles of whiskey and spending seven hours listening to Nine Inch Nails makes you better than Captain America or not, and what does any of this have to do with Mandrake The Magician? Get listening and find out!

You can find much more ab out 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. Though whatever you do, don’t give me Trish’s coffee instead of Jessica’s by mistake.
