Morgan takes Tom through a history of the Mortal Kombat franchise, from the video games to the (mostly) dodgy movies to the forgotten cartoons.

We discuss the origins of ‘Toastie!’, its weird Dad’s Army connection, and the worst line of dialogue in cinema history.

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 38: Predator

Morgan shares with Tom why Predator is the best movie of all time, let alone the 1980s.

Morgan explains to Tom just why 1987’s Predator is his favourite movie of all time. We chat about all things Arnie, why Alan is a badass name and why AVP was just… no.

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

Episode 36: Ranking the Scrooges (Christmas Special)

Tom and Morgan pick three famous Scrooges each to find out who is the best ever.

Merry Christmas! For this year’s festive special, we’re looking back at some of the most memorable adaptations of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

Tom and Morgan pick three Scrooges each, to decide which one is the very best (not including Scrooge McDuck or efforts by Henry Winkler or Kelsey Grammer, sorry boys).

The episode also features an exclusive interview with Muppet Christmas Carol star Meredith Braun, where Tom chatted with her about the film’s fan favourite song ‘When Love is Gone’ and how great Michael Caine was as Scrooge.

Episode 35: Flash Gordon

Tom and Morgan discuss the history of one of America’s most beloved comic book characters and its 1980 movie.

OK, we may have had an issue with our latest episode (ie, Tom forgot to record it properly), so that lost episode will be re-recorded in a few months time…

BUT, instead, here’s a brand new episode entirely, all about the history of one of America’s most beloved comic book characters, and its 1980 movie, Flash Gordon!

Tom and Morgan chat about the underrated hero that is Buster Crabbe, the best bits of Queen’s Flash soundtrack and why Ming the Merciless’ name is so perfect.
