Countdown #339
 
This week, with thanks to Patron extraordinaire David Powell, the boys are counting down their best ten TV Comedy Characters. It's Wayne's wheelhouse, but Paul has come to play, with some quality choices on both sides of the ledger.
 
What beloved sitcom character will both Paul and Wayne have as their number ten? Is a certain HIMYM character higher on Wayne's list than Paul's? And who has the funniest IT Crowd character?
 
It's laughs aplenty this week in an extra long episode, as The Countdown continues ...

What If …? Eps 1-5 review

Marvel is back with its fourth series of the year on Disney+, the experimental animated show, What If ...?
 
So in honour of the first half of the series having aired, the guys decided:
 
- What if they reviewed that first half given there was nothing worthwhile being released to cinemas for the better part of a month? (Thanks again COVID.)
- What if Wayne enthusiastically chirped on about the animation?
- What if Paul loved the zombies episode?
- What if Wayne loved every episode?
- What if Paul banged on with his criticisms?
- What if all of the above statements were true?
- What if they were not?
- What if this joke had played itself out?
 
(It had.)

Top 10 Los Angeles Set Films

Countdown #338
 
Last time a topic like this came up it was all about New York and that was hard enough. But this time around, when it comes to counting down their favourite films set in a particular city, the guys have challenged themselves further: To narrow all the films set in Los Angeles, California, down to just ten films!
 
This one, kind listener, is more difficult than navigating your way out of LAX in a hire car. And it could cost Wayne and Paul more than a day at Disneyland.
 
Find out just how badly the boys regret all the films they had to leave off this killer list, as The Countdown continues ...

Kate review

No, the guys are not reviewing your friend, Kate. That would be gross and inappropriate.  They're reviewing the Netflix movie, Kate. (Though if your friend looks like the Kate in this movie, hit Wayne up. He'd like to know how she's doing.)

Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars in the latest John Wick wannabe, as an assassin who has 24 hours to live and wants to find those responsible. Like, badly. Cue stylish fight scenes, violence, a terrible CGI-fused car chase, and more neon than you've seen - even on the streets of Tokyo - and you have yourself a film. But is it any good? Wayne was over the line as soon as MEW walked on screen, but Paul will take more convincing. Shock, horror.

Find out if Kate is worth your time (I know, she's your friend, of course she is, but are we still playing out that joke?) as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #337

 

This week - for their 500th main feed release! - the boys are gazing into their crystal balls and speculating on what new television shows (or their revivals) they hope will be most excellent. From sci-fi through fantasy to multi-camera comedy, this Ep has it all - including Paul once again getting a little excited and screwing up the episode number by the end of the recording. Wayne, meanwhile, is just a little too keen to see 93 more Star Wars television shows and is far more forgiving of the show that both guys labelled as (previously) having the worst finale EVER!

 

Find out what that show is, get your appetite whetted for a whole bunch of other good looking shows, and stick around for the guys' take on a much loved theme song, as The Countdown continues ...

The MCU is back with it's 25th film and the second from Phase 4, but the guys have VERY different takes on whether this first outing for an Asian superhero hits the mark. Will this review degenerate into a verbal attack with insults and Soundboard aplenty? Or can there be a disagreement without the need for name-calling? It's a line ball call, but maybe the hosts are finally ready to grow up...?
 
Learn the answer to this question - and decide which side of the review you fall on - as The Countdown continues ...

Countdown #336

 

It's a bit of a mix of previous topics on the show this week, as the boys countdown their favourite hand to hand fight scenes.

 

Clearly, Wayne was a bit giddy from making this list as not only did he get to mention his martial arts background twelve times during this Ep, but he also completely forgot which Captain America movie contains one of his all time best fight scenes. Paul, meanwhile, is clearly bucking for the show to get sponsorship in Indonesia, as almost half his list is comprised of films made there.
 

So, come break a choke-hold, get thrown through a plate glass window, or just bend an arm backwards until it snaps with the boys, as The Countdown continues ...

Candyman (2021) review

This week Wayne watches a horror film and - surprise, surprise - doesn't much enjoy himself even though there's much pontificating about art and muses and stuff. Paul, meanwhile, is so caught up in defending the film he totally forgets about one character the Candyman killed in a flashback which somewhat undermines what he likes about the film.
 
So, you know, it's pretty much the usual for a review on this show ...
 
Find out just how usual - and whether the 2021 version of Candyman is worth seeing - as The Countdown continues ...
