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 Black Panther from 2018, and joining Tim to talk about T’Challa repeatedly being pushed over in some water is theatre critic Shanine Salmon. What will they find to say about Ryan Coogler’s secret James Bond showreel, whether you can make a film by putting a Tim From The Office in it but not having him be a Tim From The Office and whether Blue Afros are a signifier of technological prosperity, and what does any of this have to do with Haddaway? 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.
Shanine has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar, talking about the 1993 EastEnders theme, Kings Of Comedy, Club Class, hard-hitting anti-drug campaigns aimed at schoolchildren, Sack Race and Kept here, and Married For Life, Habbo Hotel, Blouse And Skirt, Renegade, Night And Day and Neopets here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
