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.
Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy us a coffee here. We promise not to spend it on one of those – ptchah – American coffees Yelena hates so much.
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.
