Twenty-fifth podcast – would be a giant-sized special if this were a 90s comic! (Yes, Nick writes these blurbs, how did you guess?) Nick and Alastair are back from the holiday season to talk about things they’ve seen on their travels, such as Revolting Rhymes, The Eagle Huntress and Inside Number Nine!
In our first Steven-Moffat-run TV show of the fortnight, we’re covering the start of Sherlock series 4 (5:02), as we ask: how much crime is enough? Full spoilers here, by the way, and here’s the review of it that Alastair mentions.
Whereas we’re a bit more sparing with the spoils in our talk about The OA (21:36), a strange new Netflix sci-fi mystery – detail-free thoughts for a while, finally plunging into total ending details at 34:31. Here’s the article Nick mentions about whether it really needs a second season.
Then back to Moffatland for the Doctor Who Christmas special (44:15) – fortunately, we’re releasing this on the twelfth day of Christmas so narrowly avoid suffering a curse.
Lastly, back in MFV #23, Nick recommended Alastair the first volume of JLA by Grant Morrison and Howard Porter (55:05) – will this straight action-superhero comic be a step too far?
