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 Black Widow from 2021, and joining Tim for a chat about Natasha and Yelena arguing over whether having pockets is ‘sissy’ is quiz expert David Smith. What will they find to say about how to go undercover as the drummer from Pink Floyd, football chants about Moon Knight and Sonic The Hedgehog’s victory over the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what does any of this have to do with Paul McCartney coming round to your house to press ‘play’ on Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends? 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.
David also joined me on It’s Good, Except It Sucks for a suitably epic three-part chat about Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.; you can find part one here, part two here and part three here. David also appeared on It’s Good, Except It Sucks to chat about Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, which you can find here.
David has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar – talking about Earthworm Jim, Torin’s Passage, Bandslam, City Bomber, Little Clowns Of Happytown, Sonic Mountain Quest and Real Robots – which you can find here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
