WHINECAST - 'Much Ado About Nothing' review

Sounds like its time for one of those Team Ups, once again! In one corner, it's cult figure Josh Whendy- a rare talent to savour and then, in the other corner, little known playwright Bill Shakesman. Together, these boys are gonna take twelve days out to film the ultimate edition of 'Through the Keyhole'!

Do we like the result? Does this type of Shakesman adaptation work?

Find out within!!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #97 - 'Some Like It Hoth'

I like it Hoth, do YOU?

Lads and ladettes, we are back this week with a little bit of a break from all the gruesome drama of the last few episodes for something a little lighter, a litter airier and, hell, a lot rarer - a genuine Miles centric episode that aims to warm the heart, the cockles and maybe even more. Does it succeed? Find out within!

Punch it, Chewie!

'Some Like It Hoth' Commentary

WARNING- This episode may involve Miles daring Hurley to place a mayo sandwich into a corpses mouth for five seconds and then eat it, which Hurley does because he's susceptible to peer pressure, the poor bastard.

WHINECAST- 'World War Z' review

It's Z day!

Yes, it's true. The much anticipated adaptation of Max Brook's novel is slamming onto cinema screens this weekend and we at WHINECAST couldn't be more excited. Because we're massive fans of the book? Golly, no! It's because it's brought to us by director Marc Forster, responsible for the deeply flawed Bond film 'Quantum of Solace' and writer Damon Lindelof, key scribe on the deeply flawed 'Lost' and the deeply flawed 'Prometheus'.

So, are we in for a deeply flawed experience? There's only one way to find out!

'World War Z' Review

WARNING - This film may feature the best recovery from a serious stomach wound since Noomi Rapace's complicated delivery in 'Prometheus'!

Twelve Months of Terror- 'The Stepfather' Review

We are returning once more to good friend and local legend @rjbayley 's horror themed opus TWELVE MONTHS OF TERROR, this week focusing on the 80s-tastic 'The Stepfather'.

Now, we're always up for a bit of TERROR, but this month's film is extremely close to our hearts, as long term fans will suspect, because it stars a young, virile and talented TERRY-OH-QUINN, the master craftsman who we simply adore due to his portrayal of Johnny Locke in the hit TV show 'Lost'. But even without OH-QUINN, this slice of eighties magicks would be a pure joy.

Lets bring some order to things!

'The Stepfather' Review

WARNING- This film may involve the authorities trying to keep a playa down.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #96 - 'Dead is Dead'

Right Said Fred? No, playas, it's 'Dead is Dead'!

This week's episode sees a welcome return to a Ben centric episode, with us finding out all kind of juicy business about his and Widmore's past together - which naturally involves us focusing on the most important topic - hair and ageing!

'Dead is Dead' Commentary

WARNING- This episode may involve the genesis of Rousseau's conveniently selective memory

WHINECAST - 'Man of Steel' review

Right then! It's time for the other main staple of the DC franchise to see if he can have another crack at a modern telling. We've got the double team of Chris Nolan and David Goyer on board, a sterling cast and the delightfully inconsistent, but always pretty, Zack Snyder.

Will we believe a man can fly? There's only one way to find out!

'Man of Steel' Review

WARNING- This film may give an unrealistic depiction of getting jobs in a poor economy with no references

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #95 'Whatever Happened, Happened

Hey there, cheeky Pootle!

We return this week with another solid episode, which seems to be all about screwing over children! We've got Kate ditching Aaron to go on holiday, we've got Juliet fiddling about with Ben's insides and...well that's about it on the kids front, but trust me, it's a damn solid episode, one that takes us that but closer to the explosive events of the season 5 finale.

Spark up your Dharma leaf and get a-rockin'!

'Whatever Happened, Happened' Commentary

WARNING-This episode sees Richard Alpert take a small boy deep into the jungle to do something to him that means he will never be the same.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #94 'He's Our You'

Aloha, my good friends!

We're back this week with a firmly Sayid centric episode, one that continues the great run that season 5 has been having. We have Sayid and Ben interacting with imprisonment, we have chickens being murdered, we have people eschewing Dharma Leaf for the more potent Dharma Acid - it's all kicking off!

'He's Our You' Commentary

WARNING- This episode may involve Sawyer shitting several bricks

WHINECAST- Doctor Who- The Fall of the Eleventh

Well, all good things just come to an end and that was never truer than tonight when we learnt that the delightful Mattie Smith has decided to depart Doctor Who for fresh pastures, making his departure during the upcoming 2013 Christmas Special.

We were fairly blown away by the news, so we decided we'd kick ourselves if we didn't get down behind the mic and have a good old chinwag about the puns, the fezzes, the jammy dodgers, the bow ties and the missed chances.


The Fall of the Eleventh

WARNING- This episode may involve us mentally breaking as we try to cope with the idea that we are the same age as Smitty when he took on the role.
