    Flash Gordon

    2018 became so problematic that this podcast seemed superfluous for a while. Who can save humanity? Only the king of the impossible, or rather the Queen. Following the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, David McCreath returns to re-record the lost Flash Gordon episode and revisit the gloriously unselfconscious satin-packed finale of the 70s, before a new era of more cynical excess begins.

    Steamy teen sex in a steel mill town over an amazing new wave soundtrack. Kio Stark brings this hidden gem of the early mid-80s to our attention. Aidan Quinn makes his screen debut as a rebel on a motorcycle who catches the eye of good-girl cheerleader Tracey. Mild violence and sexual situations ensure. You'll never think about career day the same again.

    What's the opposite of friends with benefits? Kristina Halvorson revisits her feelings for the worst people in the world, but mostly for Andrew McCarthy. Nothing about this is OK.
