Episode 76: Terminator 2! (with guest host Lizzy Unpronounceable!)

This week we finely-tuned future people travel back to the turbulent nineties where we set our sights on the novelization of robo-Arnie blockbuster Terminator 2! Joining me through time is adorable guest host Lizzy Unpronounceable who you may remember helped me battle the sickening forces of Shaun Hutson's explicit sex-fuelled adaption of the original Terminator. Now, this book isn't quite so sexy... and yet we still found it to be relatively sexy. Hasta la vista! Whatever that means!

The Book Was Better Podcast Episode 75: Labyrinth! (with guest hosts Laura and Hannah!)

This week we keep it all in the family as my two sisters - Laura and Hannah - and I journey to the very heart of the labyrinth! That's right - we're reading the super rare novelization of Jim Henson, George Lucas, David Bowie and Terry Jone's crazy eighties goblin-filled acid trip: Labyrinth. So if you're ready for some dance magic, jump magic, then stick it in your ears like it's David Bowie's codpiece!

Episode 74: Flash Gordon! (with guest host Jacinta!)

FLASH! AH-AHH! This week we rocket to the gaudy 1980 to read the novelization of meathead-with-his-own-name-on-his-T-shirt science fiction epic Flash Gordon! Joining me this week is fellow space traveller Jacinta, as we delve into this absolutely crazy deviation from the film, filled with crazy sexual deviation! Wait... How did this PG film become so unabashedly twisted and sexy? Listen and find out!

Episode 73 - Man of Steel! (with guest host Courtney Coulson!)

 The Book Was Better podcast makes it's triumphant return for 2014 as we read and discuss the slapped together novelization of Zack Snyder's pumped up, city-destroying, screamfest, Man of Steel! And by my side this week is plucky boy (but actually a girl) reporter, Courtney Coulson, as we try desperately to make sense of a movie that we loved being adapted into a book we didn't like. We're back! And we are metaphorically firing lasers out of our eyes! LET'S DO THIS!
