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 Runaways, first seen between 2017 and 2019, and joining Tim to talk about Karolina and company swiping right on a dinosaur is academic Miriam Kent. What will they find to say about Elizabeth Hurley’s neckline having its own acting ability, whether prehistoric lizards are more cost-effective than regular household pets and how to avoid being best known as Summer Bay’s Ben Lucini, and what does any of this have to do with Tiger from Here Come The Double Deckers!? 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. Yes, Old Lace can have some of it.
Ben Baker joined Tim for a chat about Cloak And Dagger – who featured in a crossover with Runaways – here and Vikki Gregorich took at look at the ‘lost’ Hulu Marvel series Helstrom here. Gary Bainbridge took a look at another staggering interpretation of Morgan Le Fay in the 1978 Dr. Strange television pilot here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
