Hello and welcome to the 150th episode of the Failed Critics podcast! It seems almost unbelievable that we’ve made it this far, but somehow we have. Both Steve and Owen would like to extend their thanks to each of you who have ever downloaded our podcast and are eternally grateful for your support.
To celebrate reaching this milestone, we’ve got a new logo, a new theme tune and as a one off treat, we’ve got an extra long triple-triple bill podcast to share with you. And believe me when I say that it’s an extra long episode. Almost five hours long, to be precise.
We kick off the podcast with this fantastic new opening theme tune! It should sound familiar as the exceptionally talented James Yuill (whose albums you should go out and buy right now!) has remixed our old theme – and we’re so excited to share it with you!
We then head into a bumper edition of the quiz that’s as traditionally shambolic as ever, swiftly followed by our Secret Bad Santa section. Which films have Steve, Owen, Paul, Brooker and Matt anonymously sent each other to watch? All will be revealed…
To top it off, we have three triple bills. The first triple bill sees each of the team pick their three favourite films. The second triple bill is based on suggestions we received from you, the listeners! And our final triple bill which we just about managed to stay awake and sober (enough) for sees the team introduce us to their “wild card” triple bill; three films that fit into any personally chosen theme.
We will be back next week with a regular podcast and back down to our normal run time of approximately 60-90 minutes. Until then, this five hour podcast should keep you going… Until then, thanks for listening and hopefully we’ll see you in another 150 podcasts time.
