    Godzilla Minus One

    Godzilla Minus One

    This week Jim dives deep into streaming watching Baghead, In a Violent Nature and Nightmares & Daydreams all of which sound pretty interesting. Elton on the other hand has a problem with his ball cock, and a little leak. For Darren, old age continues to encroach as his cyatica plays up something rotten as does his Thalassaphobia (look it up) as he returns to playing sci fi underwater nightmare fuel, Subnautica. Lee meanwhile laughs at deep fake Obi Wan youtube videos, Rick & Mortys latest season on Netflix and begins watching Fallout, while trying his damnedest to not over explain everything to Carol as they watch it. 

    After that its on to this weeks film the cheapest mega blockbuster in recent history the epic Godzilla Minus One.

The best podcast around

I love the black dog, it never fails to make me laugh, over the years it has got me through divorce, illness & redundancy (not sure which one off these were the worse) may it never end.
