TV & Film

A weekly comedic podcast in which two massive film buffs countdown a topic from 10-1 while throwing shade at the other’s list.

Episodes

This week Dan and Caleb from Netflix N Swill join forces to compare their list of the very best Netflix Original programs - be they television shows or films - against a list of the same compiled by Paul and Wayne. That's right, the Shows Vs Show format is back, and once again, the guests have the advantage with a topic which is very much suited to them. Has Wayne watched enough TV to make a list? How angry will the Countdown's first choice make Caleb? And which Netflix N Swill pick causes the longest anguished cry of "loooowwww!" ever before heard on the show?

But wait! There's more! Including an explosively divisive review of the new Transformers prequel, Bumblebee, AND some big news for the future of the show going into 2019 (Spoiler: this is the last Episode in the current format!)

All this amid the usual veiled sexual innuendo, Wayne's foul mouthed disbelief, and Paul's Soundboard retorts, as The Countdown continues ...

In this week's episode, the lads go hardcore positive as they Countdown the ten films which have proven to be cinematic GAME-CHANGERS! Which is to say they're celebrating the trend-setters through the history of cinema, that films afterwards have tended to respect, emulate, homage, or flat out steal from as they search for similar success. Fear not, though, because there's still plenty of scope for sniping to take place between the hosts with Wayne in particular proving to be a bit of an ass (Editor's Note: We've talked about this, Paul. Stop picking on your host in the show-notes.)
 
Things are far nicer during this week's review though, as the guys are generally astounded by the greatness that is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Even if it must be acknowledged that this positivity and good will does not extend to the latest edition of Seagal Watch, with Steven once again proving, in multiple ways, that he is worse than the piece of doggie doo-doo you recently trod on and tracked unknowingly through the house.
 
And as a special BONUS: Make sure you listen out for an all new addition to the Soundboard which includes the world premiere of "The Wayne Song", created by patron Billy from the We Watched a Thing podcast (based on an idea by Julio from The Contrarians podcast).

This week's episode comes courtesy of top-level Patron, Cy Wezow, who wanted a focus on two action stars of the late 80s and beyond: Jean Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal. So in true Countdown style, Paul and Wayne opted to pit these two contrasting larger-than-life characters against one another to determine, once and for all, who is the superior star/martial artist/all round person.
 
Of course, regular listeners will know the boys don't think much of Steven Seagal, with Wayne once publicly proclaiming he could beat the man in a fight. Well, all that comes back into play as the lads sweat over whether they will somehow crown Seagal over JCVD - in direct contrast to the vast bulk of the listener feedback.
 
Whatever happens, along the way, you can be sure there's time for an impromptu Seagal Watch as well as much laughter and disbelief at how bad some of these supposedly good films from 20-30 years ago are.
 
The guys keep the testosterone flowing with a review of the newly released Creed II. Does lightning strike twice for Michael B Jordan and Sly Stallone? Or does it suffer from the common affliction known as Sequelitis?
 
Find out the answers to all this and more as The Countdown continues ...
