    A View To A Kill - Extended episode

    A View To A Kill - Extended episode

    "Then I'm about to make the same mistake twice..."


    Originally recorded in 2019, I've decided to release the full version of the episode on A View To A Kill, with an extra 50 minutes of Marty from Thunderballs and I talking about Roger Moore, Christopher Walken and various other gushing.


    This episode has lived on Patreon but with the imminent farewell of Daniel Craig as Bond, let's reminisce for Roger's 1985 exit.


    If Orlebar Brown are listening, we'd still like the jackets please.


    Thunderballs is launching a new radio show in October 2021, with some very special guests talking about the music of James Bond along with some other insightful questions.

    Flash Gordon

    Flash Gordon

    "Flash! Flash, I love you! But we only have fourteen hours to save the Earth!"


    Here we are people, I did promise - the latest episode of Betamax has taken me a month to edit (so much for deadlines) but I hope you'll agree that it's worth it. Marty from Thunderballs.org crashes his rocket into my podcast and brings a bevy of Bond links, Queen chat, Timothy Dalton swooning and plenty more.

    Three Men And A Baby

    Three Men And A Baby

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!


    Steve Guttenberg makes his long overdue Betamax debut in the Leonard Nimoy-directed opus Three Men And A Baby. Guttenberg is joined by Tom Selleck and Ted Danson as three New York bachelors who become guardians of a baby left on their doorstep.


    There is also a plot about heroin dealers which I really didn't notice when I was a kid...


    Joining me to judge everyone involved is Jenny Morrill.

    Purple Rain

    Purple Rain

    "This stage is no place for your personal shit, man!"


    Another first-time watch for me, I'm joined by who else but Prince superfan Catrin Lowe to watch a movie made of equal parts amazing and ludicrous... Don't forget to purify yourself in a local lake after you've heard this. And if you know Darling Nikki's phone number, drop me a line.

    Night Shift

    Night Shift

    "Pimps is an ugly word. We could call ourselves love brokers."


    Welcome to the Night Shift, where Simon Smith and I will guide you through the finer points of working in a morgue, organising prostitution and hosting frat parties. At the same time...


    For those who haven't seen it, here is a link to the movie on YouTube https://youtu.be/7kKzH0hczGo. I hadn't seen it before (recurring theme of recent episodes) and without spoiling it, I thought it was great.


    Now can you tell me who sent him to Pimp Heaven?
