This week – much to Wayne’s delight – the guys get their TV on as they look back at 2016 and count down their favourite FIVE shows of the year. And though there is at least one predictable cross-up, the numero unos may well surprise you … Well, Wayne’s might; Paul, once again, has his finger on the pulse and is maintaining the integrity of the show despite Wayne’s best efforts to destroy it with forgotten shows and late additions. (Editor’s Note: Paul writes these show notes, so take all that with a grain of salt.)

Then the boys get savage on some of the poorer series to have disgraced their screens, with Paul, in particular paying out on two shows for wasting so much of his time through the course of the year. There’s also news shared during the Check It Out segment and a boatload of listener feedback regarding recent controversies and the best of TV in 2016.

The guys need YOUR help. Please consider subscribing, rating and reviewing the show on iTunes @ https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/countdown-movie-tv-reviews/id979577413?mt=2

This week, in an episode sans main review, the guys go dark as they Countdown the best films which dare you to laugh despite what is taking place on screen. That's right, it's the Top 10 dark comedies - and though things are largely pleasant and civilised, it wouldn't be a Countdown without Wayne making a controversial call and Paul calling him to task for it.

Beyond that, there's the return of the Cool for Cast segment as the boys recast a modern day remake of the 1997 action classic, Con Air. They then also play the latest installment of Tag Lines, and there's a bit more feedback for Wayne in reference to his Top 10 War films list a fortnight back.

Were you left hurting, aggrieved, traumatised or betrayed after hearing Wayne's Top 10 War Films list last week? The boys were concerned that might be the case so they sought to apply a salve to those wounds by opting for a much nicer Episode format this week: namely, the Top 10 Last 10 show, as pioneered by the @cinereelists podcast. And as an added bonus, the boys invited previous guest host, Christian, to return and weigh in with his ranking from worst to best of the last 10 films he has seen. Which means, as an added bonus, you'll get to learn just how many of those films a father of a new baby is able to get through in one sitting...

Wayne and Paul also review the new sci-fi drama, Arrival, and opinions (just for a change) differ wildly! While those feeling hurt after last week will get a chance at vengeance with the Recount segment, as Wayne finds himself the target of some very amusing feedback.

Check your weapons, lace up your combat boots, slap your fellow soldier on the shoulder and get ready for this week's Countdown! Since just in time for Remembrance Day, Paul and Wayne are turning their attention to the best War films of all time. Which is to say, those films that best encapsulate the sacrifice and loyalty the brave and women of the armed forces demonstrate when fighting for their countries. Well, that's what Paul does. Wayne, while off with the fairies, counts down a list that defies both description and belief. Meaning you'll just have to listen to learn how far off the rails he has gone this time...

The guys also review Mel Gibson's return to the directorial chair (as he desperately attempts to atone for his past sins) with the impressive Hacksaw Ridge. Wayne has more problems with the film than Paul, but what surprises are in store when the boys give their final scores?

Then there's the usual Recount, Check it Out and listener feedback segments, before a blooper reel of epic length rounds out the show.

For once, Australia scored an early release of a major studio film, and so Paul and Wayne gleefully shot off to see Doctor Strange, the newest Phase 3 film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Opinions are oddly synonymous this week, but is this Doctor worth making an appointment with?

Then after the latest round of the Countdown's ongoing gaming segment, Tag Lines, the guys get down to trying to out-weird one another with their Countdown of the strangest films ever made. And though there may be less arguing than normal, be reassured there are many choices involving inappropriate relations with all manor of non-human things...
