IIAB Season 13 Episode 02 – Hitman’s Bodyguard, Star Trek: Discovery, The Deuce

After a month’s break the gang finally drag themselves to the Is It A Bicycle Complex to record a bumper episode of TV and Film reviews. We talk about dicks, again, this time for American Vandal. Confession Tapes from Netflix has nothing to do with Mike’s weekend. The length of the Deuce has Mark lamenting and fractions, strangely, are hotly debated as we discuss Strike: Cuckoo’s Calling One Third. Hitman’s Bodyguard and The Dark Tower is the closest we get to a Blockbuster, but Netflix puts up cinematic competition with What Happened to Monday? Mark declares it unofficial Star Trek week as we discuss the franchise’s return to tv and the Star Trek inspired comedy The Orville

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

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.

Season 11 Episode 03 Cell, The Get Down, Marcella

Shona returns, contempt dripping from her lips, after Mike’s literary efforts in last week’s blurb. Steve is lost in a fashion vortex where Marines are a bit too hirsute for his liking. Mark spends undue time trying to figure out the plural for penis and then berates the world for missing Marcella, the best “cop series without a partner of the opposite sex with unusual skills” this year. The Seventies proves once again it just won’t die in Get Down, the story of New York inventing modern popular culture. You weren’t there man….Given the appalling new mainstream offerings this week, we put our faith in Lawrence Letter Jackson and John Cusack to come in from the blind-side with VOD fast zombie reboot, Cell.

Season 11 Episode 02 Suicide Squad, Last Chance U

An Ode to Margot Robbie’s Ass

Oh Margot Robbie’s Ass,

I see you tempting my purple helmet,

no R rating will you endure.

Oh Margot Robbie’s Ass,

Thank you for stealing

every shot

of this movie, a thigh gap to the end.

Oh Margot Robbie’s Ass, we know if you didn’t take the gig another would have done it.
