Good stuff

No idea what they’re on about with 75% of these films but each episode’s been good for a laugh nonetheless.

The Predator episode brought me back to all those 80’s action films my dad and brothers would spend hours watching when I was a kid in the 90s. Would love a bit if Van Damme in Babylon.

Hooked

The Empire Strikes Back special got me hooked and I’ve been listening since.

It’s great to hear the camaraderie between Bruce and Sam, another cracking podcast.

Give it a listen.

I was in stitches

Brilliant. I love a proper 80’s film. The way they dissect the film is very funny. Keep them coming! Trading places , Great out doors etc would be great
