The Book Was Better Episode 173: The World Is Not Enough (with guest host Courtney!)


This week it's a case of the Bond Was Better when we read our first 007 novelization, The World is Not Enough! Guest host Agent Coulson has done plenty of interesting research, and I do plenty of puerile derailing, in this epic-sized episode where we expose the dirty, dark secrets of James Bond's dossier! Rest assured, we have a license to THRILL! And SPILL (the beans). And KILL (about an hour and a half of your time).

FPcast for July 25 2016: Star Trek Beyond!


This week we go beyond the something or other - a nebula or something? - when we watch and review the third instalment of Star Trek: The Taste of A New Generation: Star Trek Beyond. We also talk about our current TV recommendations, and a whole bunch of other stuff leaking out of the beginning of SDCC. I'm pretty sure it was a nebula.

FPcast for July 18th 2016: Ghostbusters!


This week we finally get to review the all new, all female Ghostbusters putting an end to seemingly endless speculation and a river of nerd tears. Plus we - of course- talk far too much about Pokemon Go, pass judgement on the week's news, and we also watched Kate Beckinsale play a monster in Jane Austen's erroneously named Love and Friendship.

This week we dig to new depths when we burrow into the novelization of ugly-as-all-get-out animated feature Antz! Doing it for the colony is guest host Paris, as we confront a muddy, violent, dystopian tiny nightmare where Woody Allen is even more terrifying than before. Dig in! If you dare!
