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 Cloak And Dagger from 2018, and joining Tim to talk about Tandy and Ty healing the streets of New Orleans by shoplifting some Dr. Pepper is quizmaster Ben Baker. What will they find to say about the current licensee of the And Dagger Pub, the dramatic tension of Iron Fist doing his accounts and what Alf Garnett would think of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what does any of this have to do with repeats of All Clued Up? 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.
Cloak And Dagger also showed up in Runaways, which you can hear Miriam Kent talking about in It’s Good, Except It Sucks here.
Ben has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about TV Mayhem, The Onion Bag, Fiendish Feet, the early internet craze for misidentifying every comedy song as ‘by’ Weird Al Yankovic, Bingo Brown, and the International Youth Service penpal scheme here, ITV’s daytime nostalgia show Looks Familiar here, Toksvig, The Whizzkid’s Guide, Mysteries Of Old Peking, Mo-Ho-Bish-O-Pi, Go (the 1999 film), and Making Your Own TV Listings Magazines here, the original version of Now – The Christmas Album here, and Bernard And The Genie here.
