Episode 51: Choose Your Own Adventure Books

Take two! We first recorded this episode ages ago, but Tom managed to not record it properly, whoops. So here we finally are!

With some tequila and more beer than usual, this may be the drunkest we’ve ever been, which will make for some adventurous storytelling…

Tom takes Morgan through a history of gamebooks, COYA, Find Your Fate and more, and we also test out three books based on past episodes.

Expect plenty of pageturning, regretful alcohol consumption and awful Snarf impressions…

Patreon thank-yous go out to: Sam McCathie, Rob Horrocks and Oli Jeffery.

Episode 50: Tom vs Morgan (Donnie Darko vs Temple of Doom)

For our 50th episode, we’re doing something a little different.

We picked a classic cult icon each that one of us loves but the one hates, in the hopes of convincing them they’re wrong. Considering we usually agree on all things geek, it was a hard task just finding two things in the first place.

In the end, we plumped for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (which Tom hates) and Donnie Darko (which Morgan hates). But… WHO. WILL. WIN?

What’s worse? Willie Scott screaming for two hours or pretentious timey-wimey nonsense?

Hear our pitches as to why the other one is wrong, and find out who came out victorious.

Episode 49: Ranking the Santas

Ho, ho, ho!

For this year’s Christmas special, we’re ranking the greatest screen Saint Nicks of all time.

Our five are: Mel Smith (Father Christmas), Edmund Gwynne (Miracle on 34th Street), Richard Attenborough (Miracle on 34th Street), Tim Allen (The Santa Clause), and David Huddleston (Santa Claus: The Movie). But which order will we pick them?

Plus, plenty of other honourable mentions, and a brief history of Santa as we know him. See, it’s an educational show too!

Merry Christmas!

Episode 48: Quantum Leap

Oh, boy!

In this episode, Morgan takes Tom on a leap of faith back to the 1980s and beyond, as we retrace Sam Beckett (or is it Becket?)’s travels through time.

From its heartwarming moments, its somewhat dubious moments to its cracking theme tune, Ziggy says we have a 100% chance of having one hell of a ride.

Episode 47: Freaky Film Franchises 2

Just like episode 5 way back when, we’ve taken two film franchises each and dissected just how bonkers they have got (and are still going to this day!).

Morgan teaches Tom all about The Marine and Universal Soldier franchises, while Tom takes Morgan through Air Bud and Puppet Master.

Try and keep up, things are about to get thoroughly confusing (and merry).
