It’s our double-centennial episode! And to mark this frankly unnecessary amount of podcasting, we recommend more of our all-time favourites, with Nick bringing popular comic series Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye and Alastair supplying cult movie The Royal Tenenbaums.
But first, Nick’s finally completed his year-long mission to watch all of Justified and 2023 comeback show Justified: City Primeval, while Alastair’s headed out on his annual pilgrimage to London Film Festival where he saw movies like The Zone of Interest, Molli and Max in the Future and many more.
All that dealt with, it’s time to get stuck into Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye (15:08), the one piece of transforming-robot media Nick likes, featuring a group of misfit Transformers on an accident-prone journey across space. Will Alastair be able to tell all the similar-looking mechs apart?
And lastly, we cover The Royal Tenenbaums (32:52), a major work in Alastair’s personal cinematic journey. Will this be the one that finally makes Nick shut up and love Wes Anderson?
