Episode 63: Armageddon

Now, we didn’t plan this, but our next episode is all about a movie that delves into the end of the world. Whoops.

Yep, it’s time for Tom to teach Morgan all about 1998 Michael Bay/Bruce Willis disaster movie explosion fest Armageddon! AKA the highest grossing movie of 1998.

In the episode, we discuss the film’s frankly amazing cast, Ben Affleck’s hilarious disparaging DVD commentary, and we hear Morgan’s Donald Trump impression. What more could you want?

We recorded this episode before the whole coronavirus pandemic became a thing, but we reckon it’s strangely apt to be discussing something so… end of the world-y. So, at least whatever’s happening in your life right now, at least the fate of the world isn’t in the hands of Bruce Willis and his oil drilling pals.

Podcasts can be a great comfort or distraction in times like these, so while we’re sure everyone has bigger concerns, we hope we can provide some small feeling of comfort and a bit of a giggle.

All the best from both of us, stay safe.

Episode 61: Live and Kicking

For our first episode of 2020, Tom takes Morgan back to the 1990s once again, as the boys discuss the nostalgia rush that is Live and Kicking.

We go through a brief history of Saturday morning kids’ TV from Tiswas to SMTV, debate the Andi Peters/Emma Forbes vs Zoe Ball/Jamie Theakston eras, try to remember which one was Trevor or Simon, recall John Barrowman’s involvement and phone-in jingles, and what signalled the demise of a TV institution.

Episode 59: The Animals of Farthing Wood

For this episode, Tom takes Morgan back to their 1990s childhoods, by reliving the trauma suffered by watching animated TV series The Animals of Farthing Wood, based on the novels by Colin Dann.

We look back at the various horrendous deaths suffered by the woodland critters that makes Game of Thrones seem tame, how the suffering of a cute badger lost him some serious street cred, and both boys genuinely start tearing up in the most emotional episode yet.

Tissues at the ready, gang!

Episode 52: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

We travel back to the late ’90s and one of the greatest teen sci-fi shows of all time. Morgan reminds Tom just why Buffy and the Scooby Gang were so great.

We remember its kickass theme tune, our several man crushes and when Anthony Head made Tom feel very stupid.

Episode 45: Jurassic Park

OK, it may have been a month or so since Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came out, but here’s our Jurassic Park episode!

Here, Tom welcomes Morgan to the world of the Jurassic Park series, from the original book by Michael Crichton, to all five movies, video games, toys and more.

We also discover the dodgy Carnosaur franchise, the cancelled TV series that Spielberg couldn’t be bothered to look at, and what Tim and Lex Murphy did next.

Hold onto your butts, this is one epic ride..

Tom helps Morgan refresh his memory of the good old days of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and try not to have our childhoods ruined by shoddy production, racist undertones and dodgy spandex suits. We also discuss the ‘classic’ movie, its many TV spinoffs and the future film.

Beer choice: Doom Bar (reference – Rita Repulsa’s impending doom. Yeah, we know.)
