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.
Tom takes Morgan through the mind of Jim Henson and two of his greatest fantasy movies.
Tom takes Morgan back to the 1980s – when fantasy movies were everywhere and full of animatronics and puppets instead of CGI and green screens.
This episode delves into the brilliant mind of the late, great Jim Henson, and two of his non-Muppet movies: The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. Movies that were not huge successes at the time, but have grown to become cult favourites.
We discuss everything from David Bowie’s bulge, scary bird things and whether pretending you were the baby in Labyrinth wins you any friends at uni.
Ho ho horror. Tackling the Christmas vs Halloween genre, from Silent Night Deadly Night to Jack Frost.
Ho ho HORROR. As we missed the deadline for our own Halloween special, we’ve combined it with Christmas for a collection of the best and worst of a very particular kind of horror film: the Christmas horror.
Morgan and Tom teach each other about: Silent Night Deadly Night, Jack Frost, Black Christmas and Treevenge – and discover that the Christmas horror genre is anything but festive. Garbage Day!
Our third mini episode comes after we’ve seen the latest MCU blockbuster – Captain America: Civil War. We bang on about how we hate Bucky, why we love Spider-Man and Black Panther and how spoiled we all our nowadays.
