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 Hawkeye, first seen in 2021, and joining Tim for a chat about Clint and Kate helping Santa out with his naughty list during a busy period is board game expert Vikki Gregorich. What will they find to say about the the wisdom of putting ‘Henchman’ on your CV, whether The Bucky Show could potentially constitute a five star Broadway smash and who to put your money on if Linda Cardellini and Adrianne Palicki start smacking each other, and what does any of this have to do with Toast Of London Of That Building In New York That Everyone Skates Outside? 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 me a coffee here. If you can fire some gingerbread syrup into it using a trick arrow I will be seriously impressed.
Vikki has appeared on It’s Good, Except It Sucks talking about Thor – featuring Hawkeye’s first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – here and Helstrom here. You can find out more about Hawkeye’s further adventures – only occasionally featuring his family – with Mark Griffiths on Avengers Assemble here, Garreth Hirons on Avengers: Age Of Ultron here, Mitch Benn on Captain America: Civil War here and Ben Baker on Avengers: Endgame here. There’s more about Yelena Belova in Black Widow with David Smith here and Wilson Fisk in Daredevil with Gary Bainbridge here.
Vikki has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about Animalympics, Conrad’s War, Paul Biegel novels, Deathworld, The Last American and The Secret Cabaret 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.
