Terrible people are brought together to work as a team… but enough about the hosts of this podcast.

With the upcoming release of Wonder Woman we look at an earlier DC Extended Universe film, Suicide Squad.

DC had just released the dour Batman V Superman: Yawn Of Justice, which was heavily criticised for it's dark tone, while it’s great rival Marvel had success with Guardians Of The Galaxy, a super quippy ensemble film featuring reluctant heroes. Reluctant, third-tier, not famous heroes….

What was DC to do with their own not famous reluctant hero ensemble flick?

In this episode:

Deadshot is a sexist

The shoddy treatment of academia in the DCEU

The Batman! The Joker! The Flash! None of them deserve exclamation points!

Sentimental criminals

The Enchantress is not a good hang

And we find out the safest mode of transport!

We know you may be sick of hearing about Trump’s first 100 days in office so take your mind off current affairs as we discuss the ‘Escape From….’ series , set in a dystopian future where authoritarian demagogue presidents wall off undesirables. *Allen and Chris look to camera*

In this episode we discuss:

Kurt Russell’s hair

The aristocracy

Great casting

Wonderfully named characters we never see

John Carpenter’s great films

Was Escape From LA ahead of it’s time?

And Snake Plissken’s view on trans rights!

Remind yourself of the films here:
