BIG news this week, as Paul and Wayne welcome a NEW member of The Countdown, and one they hope will be a mainstay on the show!

More seriously, the guys each present a film for review this week. Wayne takes a look at Life and has some positive things to say about it (beyond insisting the Des'ree song make an appearance in the Ep), while Paul falls short - okay, just short - of going full #Negatron on Power Rangers.

Then drawing on the one common theme between the two films, the boys countdown the best End of the World Films, and though there are a few shaky moments early as parameters are defined (and then discarded, as Jef from Cadaver Cast mocked during the week), it all ends fairly harmoniously and not at all nihilistically.

#moviepodsquad promos played this week are for the great Super Movie Bros show @SuperMoviePod and our brother podcast in the US, the Epic Film Guys at http://epicfilmguys.podbean.com/ and on Twitter @EpicFilmGuys

Nick and Justin aka The Epic Film Guys are back for their third Countdown to this week to assist in a retrospective of the best and worst of film in 1992. It's the year Paul and Wayne graduated high school, while Nick and Justin were barely old enough to understand what film was, and yet an absolute blast was had by all ripping the worst of the year to shreds while celebrating some of the all time greatest films ever made. And, in a Countdown first, Whitney Houston makes more than one appearance as her spirit moves Nick in ways, well, you'll just have to listen to appreciate ...

This week the guys officially become the 203rd millionth podcast to review Logan - the final turn for Hugh Jackman as the much-loved Wolverine - and only the fifth to bother reviewing Kong: Skull island #Negatron

But all that is just an appetiser to the main meal as Paul and Wayne commemorate the recent loss of show favourite actor, Bill Paxton, by dedicating a whole Countdown to him and his best films. Things remain relatively peaceful out of respect for the great man, until Wayne gets hot under the collar over what Paul has ranked his number one ...

This week, to avoid the comedown after Ep 100, the boys get busy counting down the very best sports films of all time! Can they bury the hatchet after all the shenanigans of the last Ep? Or will Wayne's lack of sports knowledge come back to haunt him as Paul flies the flag for harder core classic sports films? For that matter, will ANYone take Wayne's list seriously after he equates cheerleading to golf as a sport?

There's also a new Check it Out and some big promises for Countdown related developments to come ...
