IIAB Season 12 Episode 22 - Swedish Dicks, Comrade Detective, Icarus

This week Steve tries to battle bad broadband and loses, leaving Mark and Shona to steer the ship and try not to break anything.
Mark tells us about Swedish Dicks (it’s not what you think); these dicks are private investigators who aren’t even a mixed gender duo. And Comrade Detective makes us wonder about how you can make a tv show about bad overdubbing. For our film we look at Icarus, the Netflix documentary on doping, with a twist of testosterone injections and a side of international conspiracy. Of course the conversation takes a nose dive into what we all really want to know… how doping causes man boobs.

IIAB Season 12 Episode 21 – Room 104, Somewhere Between, The Founder

Apologies for the sound gremlins this week folks. No apologies from ABC however for Somewhere Between, a murder-thriller cross between Groundhog Day and a hernia. Having blown their budget on Game of Thrones, HBO hits the low rent district in Room 104, an anthology of shorts set in a motel room. Michael Keaton tells us the sometimes brutal history of the Big Mac in The Founder.

IIAB Season 12 Episode 20 Midnight Texas, Ozark

This week, we take a look at new Netflix offering -Ozark- and debate whether Jason Bateman can pull off a serious face, and how credible his boredom is given all the drug-related shenanigans going on around him. In Midnight Texas, the crew bet Mark would be disappointed by all the lack-lustre vampires who are scraping a 7 and keep busy not being sexy. Doing overtime this week Mike also explains Dunkirk to those of us who know nothing about history or One Direction.

IIAB Season 12 Episode 19, War Machine, Salvation, Friends From College

What happens when Netflix decide to go Blockbuster on the politics of war? The team discusses War Machine and who Brad Pitt may or may not be playing. Armageddon gets reimagined for the small screen in Salvation and we try to decide if it is worthy of the comparison. Friends from College is added quietly by Shona who then disappears without ever having to watch it, genius or folly? On top of that the team spend more time discussing the now defunct preview segment than they would have spent previewing.
