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 second part of our look at Avengers: Infinity War from 2018, and joining Tim to talk about Thanos giving The Avengers the ultimate half price concession is writer Martin Ruddock. What will they find to say about whether it’s appropriate to describe Eitri The Dwarf as a ‘broken man’, Doctor Strange re-enacting the Ebeneezer Goode video and the answer to that all-important question ‘Whither Dominic Fortune?’, and what does any of this have to do with the Argos Catalogue? Get listening and find out!
