Happy fifth birthday! It's our birthday, and to celebrate, we're voyaging into beautiful indulgence by recommending each other some classics. First, Nick suggests the first volume of Alan Moore's classic Swamp Thing run (9:47), then Alastair adds Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 movie North by Northwest (27:55).

A week into 2021, it's time to exorcise the ghosts of that dark year, with our 2020 retrospective! But first, some up-to-the-minute content with a quick review of the new Doctor Who special (10:21), before we lunge into our detailed breakdowns of last year in film (19:46) and TV (47:38).

Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas, the season is upon us (to a limited pandemical extent) and we're reviewing the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special (12:19), with some bonus spoilerific chat about that Mandalorian finale and the many recent spin-off announcements (19:45), and Euphoria: Trouble Don't Last Always (37:02), a bonus semi-festive episode of the trou…
 
This fortnight, it's back to work at the Netflix coalface with Enola Holmes (10:28) and Teenage Bounty Hunters (23:50, with mid-way twist spoilers from 36:44 and full-bodied ending ones from 40:15).

This episode, we take our long awaited journey into Netflix loopy scifi show Dark (13:28), starting with some general chat with broad season 1-2 spoilers and then (at around 27:09) veering into hardcore season 3 ending details. You have been warned. And then we top it off with a little look at new Netflix comics-adapted action movie The Old Guard (…
 
This fortnight, Nick and Alastair can't move for action heroes having their grizzled hearts melted by cute kids.

We're back! Nothing happened in our absence, right? Cool. Well, time for our supertopical 2019 review episode! Starting off with a review of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, then moving to our thoughts on the year in TV (11:42) and top 5 favourite shows (27:41), then the same combination for film: a chat (53:25), then a chart (61:05).

This fortnight, we cover the BBC's new His Dark Materials adaptation (10:50), then ask: whatever happened to British sci-fi/fantasy on TV? (27:27) It gets surprisingly bleak. SPOILER NOTE: inevitably, we don't quite make it through our His Dark Materials review without mentioning a couple of events from a bit later in the book series. Fuller showno…
 
ONE CENTURY OF MODERATE FANTASY VIOLENCE! Yes, it's our hundredth episode, and after tipping a hat to the present day by reviewing new Breaking Bad movie El Camino (13:10), we rocket off into the past to recommend each other our teenage favourites. For Alastair, that means Shane Meadows' debut feature A Room For Romeo Brass (20:36), while Nick revi…
 
It's an X-Men X-Travaganza this fortnight, as we take on the last season of our beloved Legion (14:44), with full finale spoilers from about 31:59. And then it's time to talk about Marvel's relaunch of the actual comics with House of X and Powers of X, with a lot of spoilers starting fairly early on, FYI.
