Episode 51: Choose Your Own Adventure Books

Our drunkest episode ever sees Tom and Morgan discuss the history of Choose Your Own Adventure books, including testing out three such 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)

The boys try and convince each other they are wrong for hating two classic cult films: Temple of Doom and Donnie Darko. Who will win?

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

The boys feel all festive by ranking the greatest screen Saint Nicks ever.

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 47: Freaky Film Franchises 2

Tom and Morgan go back to their roots and dissect four downright bonkers film series.

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).

Episode 46: Mission Impossible

Morgan takes Tom through a history of the M:I franchise, from its TV series, to the movies and beyond.

Finger on the pulse yet again, a mere month and a bit since Fallout is released, we’re back with a brand new episode.

Morgan takes Tom through a history of the M:I franchise, from its TV series, to the movies and beyond.

We discuss at length how underrated Tom Cruise is, why we love a Limp Bizkit soundtrack and what Bond could learn from Ethan Hunt.

Episode 45: Jurassic Park

Tom welcomes Morgan to the ongoing world of the Jurassic Park series.

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..
