Two middle-aged dudes talk 50 Shades and it’s sequel.

Allen and Chris get sexy in this post Valentine's special by watching the smash-hit film adaptations of EL James’ 2 err...smash-hit books. It started off as Twilight fan fiction before being reshaped into the non-supernatural tale of a virgin and a kinky billionaire.  As the third film, Fifty Shades Freed, is released- the Fifty Shades series is undoubtedly a cultural juggernaut, but are they good films?

No, obviously. But we watched the first two instalments anyway.

In this episode:

Flu remedies

Anastasia’s educational prowess

Christian Grey is good at two things

Kim Basinger’s previous work in the field

Research!

Lots of giggling about sex stuff

And what Sci-Fi series really gets Christian off…..

Remind yourself of the films here
