Show Notes

Alex and I are back with a look into Food in Films, going over some of the most delicious films to ever grace the big screen, as well as some of the most obscure TV shows that you should definately binge! From Cult favourite Chef, to Disney magic, Ratatouille and everything else in between (and Good Burger...) we look at how food in films translates to the audience and what are the underlying messages from the films. We discuss the types of cuisines found in the films and what they create in terms of a full frontal attack to those who have a passion for cooking, or those who want to learn due to films (man in food truck...) We also discuss how Masterchef UK is far far far inferior to MasterChef Australia and why the UK version is so flat in comparison. And not forgetting the Meme hub that is Hells Kitchen staring Mr Sweary, Gordon Ramsey. Shout outs to the UK's version of the awesome Adam Richmond (forgetting the fact he is a Spurs fan...) Kate Ovens, as well as some epic news for local Comic Con fans.... For all you foodies out there, this is for you...

Build Your Own "Suicide Squad"

Andrew and Alex join me as we battle it out with our own "Suicide Squads". Each of us has a team of 5 characters from any movie ever made; although there are certain rules that we explain in the show, and we must argue the case for each member of our team as to why they would win in a fight, or lose, and then as we each reveal our team, argue how each team would fair against the rest. Once we have fought over our teams, we fight over a "Combined FTVShow Suicide Squad" and pick 1 person per role from our teams to make the super team. All mixed in with some truly awesome music, we all have such fun debating and arguing and generally having a laugh. Have a listen and tell us, who would be in your "Suicide Squad?" #NotJeffGoldblum ...

Pokemon

Alex & I are joined by Jaz, who is a "Pokemaniac" and they both enlighten me in the arts, and love, of Pokemon, from it's inception right up to now. We discuss the games, anime, movies and merch as well as me testing them both to name as many Pokemon as they can! As someone who has never been into Pokemon, it was eye opening and interesting to learn all about the worldwide phenomenon. I even owned up to playing Pokemon Go when it was the "in thing"! ...

Marvel & DC

I am joined by Andrew, my actual next door neighbour, and MASSIVE DC fan as we discuss and dissect our favourite parts about each Studio; Film & TV, and TRY to decide which is better. We touch on those turkeys that dog both studios but also add a bit of history to some of our favourite superheroes. As always, the music is on point, but this time it is ALL about these Studios..... some speakers were damaged during the making of this show..... ...
