Looks Unfamiliar: Mic Wright – Film Noir But It’s Fish

Clarissa Explains It All (Nickelodeon, 1991-94) - listen to Mic Wright and Tim Worthington talking about it in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.

Joining Tim this time is journalist Mic Wright, who’s pushing, filing, stamping, indexing, briefing, debriefing and numbering his recollections of I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape by The Times, Clarissa Explains It All2000 AD strip Nikolai DanteSharky And George, Steve Aylett’s biographies of non-existent writer Jeff Lint, and psychological puzzle sensation The Game. Along the way we’ll be debating whether Tony Soprano would still come top of all of those critics’ lists if he had a pet alligator, playing Paranoid Mornington Crescent, trying to figure out the logic behind posting on the Internet to say there’s nothing on the Internet about Sharky And George, and placing bets on whether anyone can beat Margaret Thatcher at The Game.
