Episode 178: Basic Instinct (with guest host Lizzy!)


This week things take a dark turn when we read the thigh-opening crime thriller novelization of Basic Instinct. Listen as guest host Lizzy and I shudder with horror at Detective Nick Curran, one of the most disgusting crapbag characters ever created, and his deplorable downward spiralling antics. Trigger warnings apply!

The Book Was Better returns from hiatus with a brand new episode thanks to the labours of far-more-motivated-than-I-am co-host Courtney Coulson! We review the overwritten novelization of the much-maligned Star Trek Nemesis which confirms for me how much I dislike TNG - but can I pull Courtney across tot he dark side?

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).
