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 Deadpool from 2016, and joining Tim to talk about Wade Wilson running up the biggest taxi fare in superhero history is journalist Emma Burnell. What will they find to say about the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s secret origins in a pizza-themed Friends ripoff, how to distinguish a guy in a suit from a guy in a suit and the long-forgotten legal requirement for all eighties movies to have Yello on the soundtrack, and what does any of this have to do with The Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Nuns On The Run Cinematic Universe? Get listening and find out!
