In our new episode, we’re watching 1991’s The Guyver starring Mark Hamill. This one’s got it all, folks:
- Bad lighting
- Terrible fight choreography
- A nonsense plot
Hear Chris and Matt talk about all that and more for just $1!
So my goal before the Guardians of the Galaxy movie comes out is to ruin the experience for myself by familiarizing myself with the characters so that part of my reaction to the film will be devoted to detached nerdrage.
One title missing from this list (and from a lot of Marvel Cosmic chronologies, for some reason) is THANOS 7-12, also by Keith Giffen. It sets up a lot of things that turn up in ANNIHILATION, including the introduction of Starlord into the regular Marvel universe, the Kyln and so forth.
IRONJAW #3 -
IronJaw seems to have picked up an array of accents and speech impediments during his travels. We learn the importance of Dad Shaving, meet some guys with better names than Ferd and Budzo, and find out that IronJaw is a Maytagtheist. We may or may not have had some drinks while recording this one. No real way to tell.
THE CAT issue #2!
If your cousin Denny says he can get you a great job, for gods sake ask some follow up questions! This and other life lessons are learned as we read Beware The Claws Of The Cat #2!
Chris and Matt venture into uncharted territory this week by making their first real encounters with the Fist of the North Star franchise the much-maligned live-action adaptation starring Gary Daniels and Costas Mandylor.
Not only is the fighting terrible, so are the costumes, the sets, and everyone’s accent. Are you ready for some bad Michael Caine impressions, even though Michael Caine is not in this movie? This episode’s for you!
By the Great Machine! In this episode we explore IronJaw’s love of similes and his possible connection to Aaron Neville. Plus, he’s still an asshole!
A program from a Nazi meeting held in Brooklyn in 1934 reminds us that Nazi organizations were active in the borough in the 1930s.
'These days, he's known as the writer and creator of the BBC TV series Death in Paradise.
But after leaving Cambridge University, former Rutland schoolboy Robert Thorogood set up a theatre group with his friends from the student Footlights comedy troupe and took a production of Molière’s The Miser on a tour of private schools.
Which is how he came to be back at Uppingham in the mid-1990s.
And which is also how we ended up with a photo of a fresh-faced David Mitchell, Robert Webb and the estimable Olivia Colman in our archive, looking young, sparkly-eyed but slightly worse for wear, fame still ahead of them.’

Look at the bow-tie, it’s important.
David Mitchell mentioned this tour during An Evening with David Mitchell a couple of years ago. He said that he always did the bow-tie up in a different way for each performance and that the other performers would have no idea how the tie would look before he appeared on stage. It became a running joke for the cast, who would attempt to stifle their laughs each time they saw the new-look tie. Regrettably, during one performance Olivia Colman laughed so much at the state of the bow that she lost control of her bladder and ended up urinating on stage. I feel privileged to have at last seen the tie that caused Ms Colman’s catastrophic act of micturation.
