#238 The Gallows Pole, White House Plumbers, and Deadloch
On this week's show we’re fixing leaks in the Nixon administration with Justin Theroux and Woody Harrelson in White House Plumbers on Sky, investigating a naked corpse and an aggressive sea mammal in Australian comedy Deadloch on Prime video, and heading back to 18th Century Yorkshire with Shane Meadows for The Gallows Pole on BBC2. Plus the team discuss the (possibly inappropriate) shows they watched as children and James goes full maverick, taking the opportunity to spring all manner of surprises upon a bemused Boyd and Kay.
#237 Poker Face, Maryland, and Platonic. With guests Harriet Dyer and Patrick Brammall
Kay's dream comes true this week when she gets Colin From Accounts star/creators Harriet Dyer and Patrick Brammall in a room (sadly, Colin couldn't make it). Plus we take a look at Apple's Seth Rogen/Rose Byrne relationship comedy Platonic, ITV's Suranne Jones/Eve Best sibling drama Maryland, and Sky's Natasha Lyonne/Assorted Criminals procedural Poker Face, which FINALLY makes its way here to the UK. All that and James confesses to having watched an episode of Naked Attraction, much to Kay's disgust.
#236 Steeltown Murders, No Escape, and High Desert
We have poetry on this week's show (yes, really), plus Kay explains (if explanation were needed) why James is a moron and the team ponder the most memorable TV needle drops in recent years. Elsewhere we get our grim on in true crime drama Steeltown Murders on BBC1, have an eye for Patricia Arquette PI in High Desert on Apple, and see if No Escape floats our boat on Paramount+.
#235 City On Fire, Muppets Mayhem, and Ten Pound Poms. With guest Rebecca Ferguson
Rebecca Ferguson joins us this week to discuss sci-fi, AI and Apple's big-budget adaptation of Hugh Howey's book series, Silo. Plus we experience unfettered carnage with Dr Teeth And The Electric Mayhem in Muppets Mayhem on Disney+, return to Oz in Ten Pound Poms on BBC1, and dip our collective toes into another of Apple's lavish literary adaptations with City On Fire. Plus, James surprises everyone by having watched Colin From Accounts, we find out why Kay's animal form is that of an angry ferret, and in a surprise return of the Massive Privilege Section, the team discuss whether you can really appreciate an unfinished version of a show (which descends into much entitled watermark whingeing, for which all we can do at this point is apologise).
#234 Fatal Attraction, Black Ops, and Queen Charlotte. With guests Lizzy Caplan and Joe Russo
We chat Fatal Attraction with Lizzy Caplan this week, as she jumps into the Glenn Close role for the Paramount+ adaptation of the classic '80s thriller. Plus Joe Russo stops by to talk all things Citadel. Meanwhile, the BBC busts out some comedy coppers in the excellent Black Ops, and Bridgerton's monarch gets a spinoff in Queen Charlotte on Netflix. Plus one of our listeners delivers wine to the office and James reveals the true extent of his sociopathic telly-watching routine.
