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

With Wayne refusing to even try and order his 100 favourite films of all time, Paul decided to recruit other independent podcasters to work through his Fave 100 Films, ten entries at a time. And first up is a long-time friend and supporter of the show, who is also a fabulous podcaster in his own right, Julio from The Contrarians podcast!
 
Julio and Paul's tastes are not exactly similar so enjoy the two VERY different lists here as the show begins its (hopefully very) slow journey toward the end of the line, as The Countdown continues ...
 
Please thank Julio by checking out his great show with co-host Alex at http://www.wearethecontrarians.com/

In this slightly-different from the norm Episode - with thanks to listener Troy from the Great Mates podcast for the idea - Paul and Wayne pick their favourite film from each year of the 90s and argue until they're blue in the face about why their choice is better. Or something like that. It's actually a mostly very good-natured discussion, except when Paul starts hearing Shakespeare in Love being touted as superior film to Saving Private Ryan. Or when Wayne suggests T2 is not the best film of 1991 ...
 
Just how many 90s classics will the guys miss as they espouse their love for some of their absolute favourite films? Find out as the Countdown continues with the first ever Decade Deathmatch ...

Cats review

WARNING: There are SPOILERS throughout this review. If you can possibly spoil a film that has virtually no plot, characterisation, or anything remotely resembling a three act structure.
 
WARNING #2: This films is beyond terrible. It is not so bad, it's good. It may well be the least talked about eighth sign. Under no circumstances should you watch it.
 
But do listen in as Wayne and Paul attempt to give adequately describe this abomination that Tom Hooper and Universal Studios would have you believe is a musical fantasy film.
 
How large is this abomination? And is this the worst film ever covered on the podcast?

Top 10 TV Villains

This week the guys are talking the very best TV Villains - well, Paul is; Wayne is farting about talking about who is the baldest and most touch-feely of all TV Villains. Which, of course, makes for some biting banter and plenty of good-natured laughs.
 
Among the topics covered: Is Walter White a villain or anti-hero? Is walking round your hose drinking water a cool thing to do? Who is the best villain among all those showcased on Game of Thrones? And does being bad for a season or two before turning good still qualify you as a villain?
 
Learn the answers to all these questions and more as The Countdown continues ...
