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 taking another look at Avengers Assemble from 2012, and joining Tim for a chat about Loki’s complete failure to understand what Doc Brown was actually up to at the Clock Tower is book reviewer Joanne Sheppard. What will they find to say about The Hipsters’ Avenger, how to fight off an alien army with a red petticoat and why cinema needs more pirates with mechanical hands, and what does any of this have to do with an organised tour of the S.H.I.E.L.D. canteen? 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. Let’s see if Tony Stark unconvincingly pretends he’s never tried coffee too.
You can hear Joanne’s thoughts on Blade II here and Blade: Trinity here. You can find an earlier It’s Good, Except It Sucks chat with Mark Griffiths on Avengers Assemble here, as well as Garreth Hirons on Avengers: Age Of Ultron here, Martin Ruddock on Avengers: Infinity War here and here, and Ben Baker on Avengers: Endgame here.
Joanne has also appeared on Tim’s nostalgia podcast Looks Unfamiliar talking about The December Rose, Colorado Beetle panic, Brontosaurus, Will You Wait For Me? by David Bellamy, Timbuctoo, KP Wickers, The Enchanted Castle, Major Morgan The Electronic Organ and Wilderness Road here, and The Bump by MC Mallett, Horror Chews, The Strange Affair Of Adelaide Harris, Matchbox Fighting Furies, Mouthtrap, Connoisseur, World Magazine, All Aboard! and The Guinness Book Of Pet Records here.
Some Unspoken Thing is a huge feature on the sheer brilliance of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; you can find it here.
