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 it’s The Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special from 2022, and David Smith is standing in as host for a chat with Tim about Mantis confusing The Twelve Days Of Christmas with Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon. What will they find to say about how many billions of Avatar sequels are in production at any one time, how to measure ‘canon’ using some C3P0 soap on a rope and how many of Peter Quill’s exes can be lost in the corridors of one spaceship, and what does any of this have to do with Drax replacing Joey in Friends? 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. Drax probably has a personal vendetta against Caffè Ritazza so it might be advisable to keep it out of his sight.
David has also joined us on It’s Good, Except It Sucks for a three-part look at Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. here, here and here, as well as Black Widow here, Moon Knight here, X-Men: First Class here, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse here and Nick Fury – Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D. here.
