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 Silver Surfer, first seen in 1998, and joining Tim for a chat about Norrin Radd gaining the cosmic ability to look a bit sad every couple of seconds is podcaster Al Kennedy. What will they find to say about Adam Warlock’s visit to Kamp Krusty, the Australian Magneto and Galactus’ victory at the Wimbledon’ Ladies Singles Championship, and what does any of this have to do with Thor refusing to appear on a platform with the ‘Corbynites’? 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. Just don’t stare at it wistfully and start going on about your beloved Shalla-Bal.
Al has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about Alias The Jester, Steve Jackson’s Battle Cards, Marblehead Manor, Joe’s Apartment, Channel Hopping, Puddle Lane and Advanced Lawnmower Simulator here and The High Life, Flipsiders, the SAM Coupé, The Golden Cagoule, Explorer 12, Steeleye And The Lost Magic and Genis-Vell here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
