In 1999 a slightly disturbing young man declared we are "Soldiers of Hell". We are neither soldiers, nor from hell. But we have been recruiting pop culture icons to join our fictional ranks for over 20 years.

    Intergalactic dream team

    Intergalactic dream team

    In the Netflix movie The Babysitter, the two main characters Bee (Samara Weaving) and Cole discuss their Intergalactic Dream Teams; 5 fictional characters from disparate franchises, thrust together to put an end to a space war with a big bad. Well if we're not mistaken that sounds rather like the Soldiers of Hell; a pop-culture military force to be reckoned with.

    Join us for a special episode where Andy and Spence agree their nominees for the only crew that save humanity from an alien invasion.

    If you enjoy this episode, why not drop us a voice message on Anchor telling us which fictional character you'd like to join our ranks.

    Cooking with Angel

    Cooking with Angel

    In what seems to be an almost annual event now, one of the Soldiers of Hell cooks whilst the other finds a way to distract them with questions about pop culture old and new. This time topics include Let Loose (old), the Masked Singer (new), the Batfleck/Keaton/Flash team up (new), continuity (old), and Fox (Mulder) and Angel (very old).  Listen as Andy cooks up a storm. You don't get chat like this on Sunday Brunch!

    We also get our very first guest Soldier of Hell submission from Al from the Separate the Elite from the Chav podcast in the form of Michael Knight of Knightrider and chest-wig fame.  If you've got a pop culture icon you'd like to nominate to join our ranks then drop us a message on Anchor.

    Eurovision: The Story of Fire Saga

    Eurovision: The Story of Fire Saga

    The last time we could get together pre-lockdown we recorded our Eurovision Bond Contest episode. So what better way to celebrate a relaxing of restrictions by getting together for a ramble round a country park with an assessment of the new Eurovision movie on Netflix starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams.
    Has it knocked our film Transatlantic Smash off its perch as the number 1 musical comedy inspired by the Eurovision Song Contest? There's only one way to find out...

    Free Binder with Part One

    Free Binder with Part One

    With shops now re-opening it's time to discuss what has kept us entertained during lockdown with Geeky Guys' Dave: Tiger King and Red Dwarf, baking with eggs and wasting eggs by kicking them. We also reminiscence about one of our highlights: last month's Zardoz viewing which subscribers may be suffering from PSTD of. In this episode we also show what shops might be like now - especially if they offer a free binder with part one to boost the economy.

    Zardoz

    Zardoz

    There is no doubt that these are strange times. But when you succumb to watching Zardoz for entertainment - possibly the weirdest mainstream movie of all time - you can be excused of thinking that very soon you'll wake up and discover Bobby Ewing in the shower.

    Zardoz. The 1974 Sean Connery movie. The movie that the Soldiers of Hell have been threatening to watch for years. Well they've finally achieved it. And here are the podcasting results.  In this lesson you will learn:

    - What its all about. (Sounds easy to dissect. It's not.)

    - Why this film has resulted in one of our longest ever podcast episodes. (Don't expect Cliff notes on this one.)

    - Most importantly, whether Connery get his willy out or not

In this episode Andy competes against Dave from the Geeky Guys podcast to see who is better at telling the difference between Sean Connery and Dutch people. It's not as easy as it sounds, especially when it's Spence reading out the clues in a hybrid accent.
