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: Far From Home from 2019, and joining Tim to chat about Peter Parker trying to recreate National Lampoon’s European Vacation while being interrupted by a giant steam monster is writer and novelist Gabby Hutchinson Crouch. What will they find to say about Alien Deepfakes, how often Thor washes his hair and the combined intellectual prowess of eighteen thousand million Donald Trumps, and what does any of this have to do with Amped-Up Daria? 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. Quentin Beck didn’t think to invent a ‘Coffee Monster’, did he. Not as smart as he thinks.
Gabby has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar, talking about Parallel 9, The Llŷn Peninsula Earthquake, The Revenger’s Tragedy, Discworld Noir, Feed The Tree by Belly and Craic; you can find the full show here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
