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 Dr. Strange, first seen in 1978, and joining Tim for a chat about Stephen Strange’s little-acknowledged stint as Office Lothario Supreme is writer Gary Bainbridge. What will they find to say about Bobby Ball’s mastery of the mystic arts, Jessica Walter’s Post Office Queue Face Acting and why Andrew Collins was such a big fan of Marvel’s Three Men Sitting On A Bucket, and what does any of this have to do with who would ‘win’ out of a pipe with some glowing eyes stuck on and Stouffer? 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. I will not particularly object if you send Morgan Le Fay round with it.
