This week your heroic hosts' frail forms have failed us all and we couldn't record an episode, so we went to the vault and brought out Episode 4 from when our mortal husks were not so dry and mouldy!

 

This episode we pedal the time machine into the morass of disco and flags that is 1976 and its Big Gross Movie: Rocky. With our special guest Alex Wood we talk the Turkey maneuvre, Mick and the Chicken-leg scourge and the emotional dams that are hats.

This week we crank up the time machine and head back to 1955 to have a look around and watch its second highest grossing movie: Oklahoma! We go over the tale of a French guy with awful busted up legs who caused a riot somehow and then go over the truly boring and terrible Oklahoma! Cowboys! Farmers! An entire plot based around a decision that is very, very clear from start!

This week we're back to take a trip back to 2008 to have a look around and watch its second highest-grossing movie: Kung Fu Panda with special guest Vance Banzo!  We talk about Iraq and the hero who emerged from there in 2008 and then recap a movie that is what is says it is and nothing more!

This week we dusted off one of our finest episodes because we went on vacation and couldn't be bothered to record an episode so we dress up the time machine in Gold and head to 1963 to look around and watch its big gross movie: Cleopatra.  We talk about the Birmingham campaign, Kennedy things, and then talk about the four hour money fire that is Cleopatra.  With special guest Ted Morris.

This week we carry on with the Summer Special series with a trip back to 1991 to catch Sylvester Stallone make a mistake called Oscar! We try to figure out what went wrong and come up Sly, featuring worst actor lady, Tim Curry the elocution robot, Spartacus SlapDaddy and Marisa Thomei for some reason.
