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 Punisher from 2017, and joining Tim to talk about Frank Castle taking out the corrupt in authority and society and knocking over a few bins along the way is journalist Mic Wright. What will they find to say about ‘Grumpy Q’, how good Hawkeye is at tidying up after himself and which came first out of office politics and bottle episodes, and what does any of this have to do with how long it takes Nile Rodgers to write a chorus? 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 drop the cup on the floor or Frank might not be very happy.
You can find It’s Good, Except It Sucks with Gary Bainbridge on Daredevil – featuring further appearances by The Punisher – here. Miriam Kent joined me for a chat about the somewhat less successful 1989 big screen version of The Punisher here. You can also find Miriam on Jessica Jones here, Jim Sangster on Luke Cage here, Paul Abbott on Iron Fist here and Tim Worthington on The Defenders here.
Mic has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about The Adventures Of Pete And Pete, Army And Navy Sweets, Emergency by 999, Rock On by David Essex, Thunderbirds comic, and the murky origins of a certain unsavoury playground rumour here and I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape by The Times, Clarissa Explains It All, 2000 AD strip Nikolai Dante, Sharky And George, Jeff Lint and The Game here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
