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 Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse from 2018, and joining Tim to talk about how many Peter Parkers it’s possible to get in the same place at the same time (especially if some of them are women) is quiz expert David Smith. What will they find to say about ‘Peter Parker Fatigue’, Prowler and Plunderer’s tailor cutting corners and whether hotdogs should have a backstory, and what does any of this have to do with Weird Al Yankovic being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame? Get listening and find out!
