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 Nick Fury – Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D., first seen in 1998, and joining Tim for a chat about the ongoing war of nerves between HYDRA and S.H.I.E.L.D. entering an alarming new ‘admin’ phase is quiz expert David Smith. What will they find to say about the hidden links between HYDRA’s mythology and Mac And Me, Dum Dum Dugan’s side career as a world-weary newspaper editor and who would win out of David Hasselhoff and Jeremy Clarkson, and what does any of this have to do with a cross between Claudia Winkleman and Joan Jett? 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. You are more than welcome to hassle The Hoff for one.
