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 Falcon And The Winter Soldier, first seen in 2021, and joining Tim to talk about Baron Zemo saying it before and saying it again dance while the record spins is writer, Stephen O’Brien. What will they find to say about the art of ‘Zemoesque’, John Walker’s Super Soldier sandwich preparation skills and what Matt and Luke Goss were up to while all this was happening, and what does any of this have to do with Max Branning The Flag-Smasher? 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 us a coffee here. It will not be shared with the Flag-Smashers.
Stephen has also appeared on It’s Good, Except It Sucks talking about Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which you can find here.
Stephen has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about The Office (the Steven Moffat one), LM magazine, You Can Do The Cube, Brilliant (the band), The Beachcombers and other last-minute ITV emergency schedule replacement standbys, and The Morecambe And Wise Board Game, which you can find here.
