Sarah and Nathan saw Mary Stuart at the Theatre Royal in Bath, and Nathan saw a lot of films on a plane - some of which were good, some of which were not terrible, and some of which were made by Ridley Scott. Plus, Age of Answers!

Rank #3: Episode 52: Ready Player Bum

Podcast cover
Read more

Don't say we didn't warn you. Ready Player One is really, really bad, so it sucks to be Sarah who only got to see that this week. Better times for Nath who also saw Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark with live soundtrack, meaning that we can delve into the mysteries of good Spielberg vs poor Spielberg. There's no Age of Answers this week because there were, shockingly, NO QUESTIONS - make us happy and send us some!

We're back from Seattle, and here we are with the aural equivalent of your neighbours coming over with the slides from their holiday.

Rank #6: Episode 49: All Good Examples

Podcast cover

We went to see Flight of the Conchords! It was great! We listened to loads of Britpop on the way! It was... variable! We watched Murder on the Orient Express! It was exactly what we hoped for! And Nathan has been playing Burnout Paradise Remastered! It has been consuming! Plus, we answer a long overdue question in the Age of Answers. No Mispronounced Item next as we're on holiday, so see you when we get back.

Rank #7: Episode 48: Dog-Related Content

Podcast cover

Apologies for being a day late on this due to Nath being ill. Still, we're here now with thoughts on Black Panther (MANY SPOILERS, you have been warned) and You Were Never Really Here (about which we try to say as little as humanly possible, leading to a pretty weird section TBH where we talk about Britpop for ages for some reason), plus The Age of Answers which is of course the best bit.

Rank #8: Episode 47: Better With Bean

Podcast cover
Read more

We watched Mute. We thought it couldn't be as bad as people said, but it is if anything much, much worse. So bad that Sarah argues it should have been more like Mr Bean, and actually has a point. Maximum spoilers here so avoid if you want to watch Mute (but you don't want to watch Mute). Plus a quick rattle through a novel inspired by the life of surrealist artist Leonora Carrington, and Nathan getting excited about The Swapper. Age of Answers includes some career advice and thoughts on Chuck Palahniuk, with special bonus atmospheric noises supplied by our newly adopted dog, Jessie.

Rank #9: Episode 46: Hold On to Your Hot Take Horses

Podcast cover

Here's the Great Lost Episode from last year! And by "Great" we mean "Really Quite Long", but for EXCELLENT REASONS, mostly relating to the brilliance of Get Out, here discussed extensively (and with spoilers all the way). We originally recorded this in March 2017, but it's OK because we were right about basically everything. Some links:

"It's the intellectual equivalent of separate beds!" says Nathan, meaning he's watched a film that Sarah hasn't and Sarah has read a book he hasn't this week. Cloverfield, Shirley Jackson, and dietary advice for dogs, let's go.
