In this week’s show, Soul’s gone to Disney Plus, Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Top Gun: Maverick aren’t going anywhere for a while, The Batman is filming in Liverpool, Mark’s annoyed he can’t see Fargo on telly, and we don’t know anything about Coming 2 America. Features references to Brookside and lots of sighing.

Date Night: 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

October 11, 2020

We’ve had our first major podcasting fail and lost the Date Night episode that *should* have come out this weekend. However… to cheer ourselves up, we decided to record another! Take a trip to Padua as we tackle Mark’s favourite film of the 90s (and Top 5 film of all time, no less!).

‘3 Of A Kind’: The Third Day, Ladhood, Little Mix The Search, Rocks (2020)

October 5, 2020

This week, we muse over the first part of Jude Law drama The Third Day (2:41). Mark has binged the box-set of BBC Three’s Ladhood (13:00) and thinks you should too (but act quickly!).  And Elaine realises just how far reality TV has come in BBC One’s Little Mix The Search (18:02).  Meanwhile, Mark’s been waiting months to see UK film Rocks (28:25) and now can’t wait to tell everyone how much he loves it.

Also, find out which early 2000s songs Elaine hates, and why Mark has been singing them.

After Work Drinks: Cinematic delays (feat. West Side Story, Peter Rabbit 2, Soul, No Time To Die), The Witches, WandaVision

After Work Drinks: Cinematic delays (feat. West Side Story, Peter Rabbit 2, Soul, No Time To Die), The Witches, WandaVision

October 4, 2020

In this week’s show, we continue to lament further delays to a number of films, including the news that No Time To Die has moved to Easter 2021. Elaine is not a fan of The Witches remake. Mark questions Elaine’s definition of a “cult classic”. And we are both excited about the WandaVision trailer.

Date Night – Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

Date Night – Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

September 30, 2020

It’s Judgment Day as we check out the latest film in the Terminator franchise.

Expect timey-winey confusion, surprising references to long forgotten X-Factor contestants and overly-excessive analysis of James Cameron’s marriages. Oh, and arguing.

“A bust of Rick Witter”: Only Connect, The Great British Bake Off, Schitt’s Creek, Enola Holmes

“A bust of Rick Witter”: Only Connect, The Great British Bake Off, Schitt’s Creek, Enola Holmes

September 28, 2020

This week, we celebrate the return of devilishly difficult quiz show Only Connect (2:06) and treasured amateur baking competition The Great British Bake Off (9:12). After it swept the board at the Emmys, Mark’s been testing out Schitt’s Creek (18:48). And Mark also found himself charmed by the new sleuth on the block, Netflix’s Enola Holmes (24:14). Keep an ear open for the part where Elaine gets Sherlock Holmes’ incredibly famous home address wrong.

The show also unexpectedly features more Blink 182 references than we could ever have anticipated. Something for everyone!

Enjoy yourselves!

“Incoming Spam Detected”: Des, The Third Day, Strike, Bill and Ted Face the Music

“Incoming Spam Detected”: Des, The Third Day, Strike, Bill and Ted Face the Music

September 20, 2020

We’re subject to local restrictions in the North East of England, so Elaine’s been to buy cake…

This week, Elaine’s being ‘enjoying’ ITV’s serial killer drama Des (4:15), we’re intrigued by experimental Sky Atlantic/HBO mini-series The Third Day (14:45), and Elaine is way too invested in the will-they-won’t-they romance in BBC’s Strike (24:26).

We’ve also been back to the cinema. This time, we saw Bill and Ted Face the Music (30:14). Safe to say, we are *not* on the same page with this one. Bogus!

In this week’s show, we discuss Tenet’s box office takings and lament the delays to Wonder Woman 1984 and (possibly) Black Widow. Elaine is confused about Dune. Mark is excited about Willy Fog. We have things to say about the recently announced Madonna biopic. And Mark gets a shock during our chat about Scream 5.
