Elementary, dear listener…

For this episode, Tom and Morgan pick three actors who have played Sherlock Holmes, before agreeing on an overall ranking of the very best on-screen Sherlocks of all time.

The actors we focus on are:

  • Basil Rathbone
  • Peter Cushing
  • Robert Downey Jr
  • Robert Stephens
  • Benedict Cumberbatch
  • Jeremy Brett

Episode 42: Mortal Kombat

A history of the Mortal Kombat franchise. Toastie!

Episode 41: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Cowabunga! Tom and Morgan go through the ENTIRE history of TMNT, from 1984 to the present day.

Tom takes Morgan through the ENTIRE history of the TMNT universe – the comics, the TV series, the movies, the merch and more. (In hindsight, maybe we should have just done the 1987 series!).

We discuss which Turtle is best, why Elias Koteas is so cool, whether Tom’s Winter Olympic Turtle was real or not, and just how weird the latest Splinter looks.

So grab a slice of pizza and settle down, it’s going to be an epic ride…

Episode 40: Bruce Lee

Morgan teaches Tom about the history of the too-short life and career of Bruce Lee.

“Be water, my friend”

Time for a history lesson on another movie icon, and this time it’s martial arts legend Bruce Lee, who died 45 years ago this July.

Morgan takes noob Tom for a travel back through Bruce’s life, movie career, and even death…

We tackle everything from mistitled US versions of his films, the dodgy Bruceploitation movies, and bizarre video games based around his image.

Episode 39: Back to the Future

Tom shares why BTTF is his favourite movie series of all time, from the movies and beyond.

Great Scott and all that. In this episode, Tom explains to Morgan just why BTTF is his favourite movie series of all time. They discuss and dissect all three movies, the cartoon series, games and more.

We find out why you can’t just copy someone’s face, how the plot of the second movie is so complicated that Tom can’t speak, and just how many Ted Danson puns we can fit into a minute.

Featuring an exclusive interview snippet with the legend that is Carl Weathers.
