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 we’re heading into the Multiverse for a look at The Amazing Spider-Man, broadcast by CBS between 1977 and 1979, and joining Tim to talk about Peter Parker fighting a procession of sixty five year old men in suits is writer Gary Bainbridge. What will they find to say about ‘Bowie-Sense’, how to avoid making someone in a costume look like someone in a costume at a school fair and the legal validity of arranging a DVD release for ‘Spider-Programme’, and what does any of this have to do with The Sex Pistols’ Free Trade Hall gig relocating to a medium-sized independent cinema? 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.
Gary has also appeared on Tim’s other podcast Looks Unfamiliar, talking about Coast To Coast, Deadly Boring, Supersonic Man, Audisee’s The War Of The Worlds, Limp-Along Leslie, That Look In Your Eye by Ali Campbell featuring Pamela Starks, Ace Reports Annual 1981 and Unbranded Soluble Cola Tablets; you can hear 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.
