This fortnight, Nick and Alastair return to the blasted hellscape of 2020 to cover some leftover cultural scraps: last superhero movie standing The New Mutants and spinoff scifi sitcom Star Trek: Lower Decks.
But first, they mention a few more recent items to make the podcast seem vaguely relevant. Alastair’s watched French heist show Lupin, while Nick’s listened to the new albums by Sleaford Mods and Weezer.
Once that’s over with, time to witness the full horror of The New Mutants (13:52). Is this film an overlooked gem scuppered by the pandemic, or can you safely forget it happened?
Lastly, they’ve also watched the whole first season of Star Trek: Lower Decks (25:04). How much fanwank is too much? Is this a comedy, a drama or… something else? All this and more! (Also, mild spoilers for moments in later episodes, be warned.)
