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 Spider-Man: No Way Home from 2021, and joining Tim for a chat about Peter Parker, Peter Parker and Peter Parker doing whatever three spiders can is writer and author Gabby Hutchinson Crouch. What will they find to say about MASSIVE PEGGY, Piers Morgan’s chances of survival in the Multiverse and what Kraven the Hunter calls The Muppet Show, and what does any of this have to do with Tom Holland’s ‘Special’ Dance? 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. Ask MJ if she’ll throw in some stale doughnuts as well.
