The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up - 'Superman IV - The Quest for Peace'

And so!

Here we are, finally at the end of our Christopher Reeve journey! We've had good films, we've had bad films, we've had Dick Donner, we've had Dickhead Lester (allegedly) - but now, we reach the end, with what some might term the jewel in the Superman crown!

It's a film notorious, but does 'Quest for Peace' deserve its negative reputation? Is there, like Darth Vader, good within it? There's only one way to be sure and that's to tune in to the newest entry in the Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up!

Audio on SHIELD #8 - 'The Well'

Well, well, well!

Delayed once again due to some spicy Doctor Who action this weekend, we finally manage to slide under the falling door to deliver our review of episode eight of 'Agents of SHIELD', entitled 'The Well'.

But what delights shall we find down there? Will it be superpowered activists? Mentally unravelling clone men?! An unexpected and unexpectedly natural booty call? Perhaps all this AND more - in this week's 'Audio on SHIELD'!

'The Well' Review

WARNING - This episode may be the straw that breaks the camel's back

Twelve Months of Terror - 'ThanksKilling' review

It's the time of year where, regardless of what country you're from, your nationality, your race, we all get together to contemplate what we're thankful for. Is it your health? Is it your collection of Victorian pornography? Is it for films such as ThanksKilling? No. No, it's not. Join us for this month's 'Twelve Months of Terror' as we sit ourselves down and encounter a low budget comedy horror that will leave us utterly devastated...and not in a good way.

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up: 'Superman III'

Hallo there, mash-up friends! It can't have escaped your attention that it's November, which clearly makes it the second half of our Christopher Reeve extravaganza - this time the focus being on the decidedly...mixed 'Superman III'. This entry sees our 'old friend' and alleged dickhead Richard Lester taking the franchise reigns with undeserved confidence and delivering a film which is enough to cow even the most stout hearted of cinematic warriors. So, buckle up, turn off the gas and unfurl your pipes - it's time to get serious. 'Superman III' WARNING: This film may rank alongside such hits as 'The Terminator' and 'The Matrix' when it comes to cinema causing viewers to tremble in fear at the thought of the inevitable and brutal mechanical revolution that awaits us all.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #116 - 'The End'


This is it. We are finally here. After more than two years of analysis, laughter, criticism, surrealism, love, hate and all the other things, we find ourselves at the end of the Lost Rewatch Podcast.

It has been one hell of a journey, one that we embarked upon with optimistic naivety and one which we pulled ourselves through with sheer grit, determination and, of course, an overriding love for Lost, in both sickness AND in health!

So, join us for our final episode in which we get to the bottom of the island, the Man in Black, the destiny of our fateful group of castaways and, most controversially, the take away from the show that lead many to forsake the prior six years of drama that they had watched - the flash sideways. Listen in as we deliver our closing arguments on a show which has been fantastic, has been terrible, that has made our blood boil - but that had always made us care enough about it to get angry in the first place. Will our final assessment be damning? Celebratory? Defensive? Scathing?

There's only one way to find out and that's to hit play on this motherhubbard of a podcast!

'The End' Commentary

All that's left to say is that both of us are beyond grateful for all of those who have stuck with us through this crazy, misguided, fun as hell journey. It's been an incredible experience for us and one that's changed our views on TV, podcasts and hell, so much more! Extra special thanks go out to those lovely listeners who've engaged with us on twitter, patiently correcting us when we got something wrong and laughing with us when some of our verbal diarrhea came out funny.

Thank you so very much for joining us, we hope you've enjoyed the experience half as much as we have, because when everything's said and done, we've had the time of our lives

After a week's hiatus, 'Audio on SHELIA' is BACK, coincidentally at the same time as the show 'Agents of SHIELD' returns to our airwaves. Imagine! This week we're getting up close and personal with our good friends Fitz and Simmons and trying to work out whether they've got anything hidden up their sleeves aside from bags and bags of comedy.

Will Simmons survive her cold? Will Coulson realise he's a hologram? Will Fitz make Skye a mix-tape? Tune in to find out!

Twelve Months of Terror - 'Pumpkinhead' review

It's that time of the year when we all like to wallow in terror, in unbridled, unrelenting horror of the highest order. Of hunting witches, burning werewolves and decapitating pixies.

But for those of us taking part in @rjbayley 's gore-tastic 'TWELVE MONTHS OF TERROR' project, it's ALWAYS that time of year! So, prepare to once again head into the wilderness with a bunch of 25 year old teenagers (when SHALL they learn?!?) as we sit down to review the tale of a man, his boy, their dog and, of course, their giant, malicious revenge monster!

'Pumpkinhead' Review

WARNING - This Halloween special may provide thrills, chills and automobiles (well, Bikes).
