This fortnight, Nick and Alastair are very much in motion, with two different but very enjoyable action movies: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 and Polite Society.

But first, Nick’s read cosmic space-horror comic Brink while Alastair’s watched Amazon’s TV adaptation of The Underground Railroad.
And then it’s off into the stars for one last ride with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (13:52). Has it been too long or will the lovable space-losers pick up right where they left off?

Finally, a more earthbound series of fights in Polite Society (28:18), a new British action movie which deserves your attention. Seriously, watch this, it’s really good.

Lastly, and also very important and worthwhile, it’s StoneCop, the new comic Kickstarter from our very own Nick Bryan, artist Phil Appley and letterer DC Hopkins, a story of one rocky lawman and his battle against marauding trolls and the secrets of his own creation. Check out the campaign here and back if you like the look of it – good monster crunching fun all the way down.

This fortnight, Nick and Alastair cover the new season of The Mandalorian, followed by All Against All, a new comic written by Alex Paknadel and drawn by Caspar Wijngaard. (If that Mando/Paknadel combo sounds familiar, it has come up before.)

But first, Alastair’s feeding his Dark withdrawal with new French scifi series Parallels, while Nick is back in the past again with urban fantasy comic Fallen Angel.

After all that, time to don your massive helmet and venture into the cave with The Mandalorian season 3 (12:18). Should you listen to any internet concerns you might’ve heard about this run? (Not really, no.)

Lastly, Nick and Alastair voyage into even more dangerous territory with All Against All (27:50), a new scifi miniseries from Image by Alex Paknadel, Caspar Wijngaard and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, about an alien race encountering the most dangerous species of all: yes, it’s human beings.

Nick and Alastair enter a world of imagination this fortnight, with two separate game-based movies: Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves and, yes, Tetris.

But first, Nick’s gone even further into comfy escapism with Superman & Lois, while Alastair’s retreated into the past yet again with Neon Genesis Evangelion.

After which, they sit down around the table, roll some dice and prepare to not appear on-screen in Dungeons & Dragons (14:23).

And if that was too intense, Nick and Alastair finish up by sitting down for a nice game of Tetris (28:01).

A journey into two different dark corners of the human psyche this fortnight, as Nick and Alastair tackle The Last Of Us and Alan Partridge: Stratagem.

To steel themselves, Alastair’s enjoyed some uplifting romance with Rye Lane, while Nick’s retreated into his childhood with Sonic The Comic The Podcast.

But the fun can only last so long – it’s time to trudge into the video game adapted apocalypse with The Last Of Us (14:06). Includes discussion of deep sadness.

And then Alan awaits, as Nick and Alastair discover the faded TV star’s latest failure in Alan Partridge: Stratagem (28:01).

This fortnight, Nick and Alastair cover a popular character from much smaller screens, trying to make their way into the movies – yes, it’s Cocaine Bear. They also saw the new Luther film.

But first, Nick’s listened to new Sleaford Mods album UK GRIM, while Alastair’s attempting his regular annual Oscar predictions, underneath which Nick has added his regular annual buzzing noises.

After all that, it’s off to the woods to huff some Cocaine Bear (14:29) and find out whether it’s worth watching the whole film in addition to the trailer.

Lastly, forever-staring cop Luther returns in Luther: The Fallen Sun (24:07) on Netflix. Will glossy cinema budgets blunt Idris Elba’s edge?

This fortnight, Nick and Alastair don their capes and take flight in this all-superpowers episode, featuring Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania and Extraordinary.

But first, Alastair’s voyaged to an even more distant sector of the universe with the Halo TV show, while Nick’s staying somewhat grounded with Borgen: Power & Glory.

And then it’s time to once again get sucked into the fuzzy world of the MCU with Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania (11:12), a movie taking Paul Rudd’s shrinking hero to his lowest level yet.

Last of all, our heroes get wrecked and talk about urine with fun new Disney+ superpower sitcom Extraordinary (27:24).

It’s the episode of Alastair’s dreams this fortnight, as our heroes finally discuss two Oscar Best Picture nominees back to back – The Banshees of Inisherin, followed by Triangle of Sadness.

But first up, in less prestigious territory, Nick’s caught up with the final season of the BBC’s His Dark Materials adaptation, while Alastair’s starting up on Wednesday, the mega-hit goth teen show on Netflix.

And then they finally get their glad rags on and head to the ceremony, starting up with The Banshees of Inisherin (13:01), a movie about two men not talking to each other. Sadly, despite Nick’s best efforts, this review did not end up just being ten minutes of silence.

And last of all, Triangle of Sadness (23:52), a movie about awkwardness, the desolate life of the rich, and vomiting. A lot of vomiting.

As ever, apologies to the cast and crew of both these films if being featured on this podcast proves to be the kiss of awards death.

Nick and Alastair continue scouring the remainder of 2022 for all the best outstanding media, this fortnight covering Our Flag Means Death and Newburn.

But first, Alastair’s seen Oscar contending movie Tar (and stops for a chat about the broader nominations too), while Nick’s caught up with the Reckless series of pulp noir graphic novels by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.

And then it’s time to hit the high seas with Our Flag Means Death (11:19), the wildly popular-online pirate romcom series, now finally available to watch in the UK without resorting to, well, piracy.

Lastly, they also try the first volume of Newburn (23:44), a new procedural crime comic by Chip Zdarsky and Jacob Phillips. The latter also coloured the earlier-mentioned Reckless books, so the snake’s really eating its own tail here.

Nick and Alastair start 2023 the same way they do most years – with leftover culture from the previous one, specifically Slow Horses season 2 and Netflix movie White Noise.

But first, Nick’s watched the US version of Ghosts and is ready to compare and contrast, while Alastair’s seen videogame-based anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, but hasn’t played the source material.

After which, they go undercover into the world of Slow Horses (15:30), ready to provide high quality Spooks nostalgia and thoughts on the specifics of season 2.

And lastly, they’ve also seen White Noise (29:17), a movie which is very definitely based on a literary novel.

A mere month or so after everyone else posted their Best Of 2022 content, Nick and Alastair finally roll up to the party!

But first, Alastair’s started on the second season of Alice in Borderland, while Nick’s slumped on the sofa with Prince Andrew: The Musical.

And then it’s time to get down to business, with a summary of the year in film (11:07) followed by a countdown of their favourite releases this year (23:35), followed by the same treatment for TV – chat (44:02), followed by chart (53:32).

If you want a more readable version of this material, you can also find Nick’s Top Ten TV Shows and Alastair’s Year In Film article right on this very website.
