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 Punisher, released in 1989, and joining Tim for a chat about Frank Castle temporarily sharing a flat with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is academic Miriam Kent. What will they find to say about The Punisher’s views on the hey nonny no men on Twitter, potential line-ups for an official in-universe MCU band and what constitutes an acceptable level of nude praying in sewers, and what does any of this have to do with who would win out of Amanda de Cadenet and Batman? 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.
