Failed Critics Podcast: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Only a week and a half late this time, it’s our Kingsman: The Golden Circle podcast! Entering into the fool’s golden circle that is the Failed Critics Podcast this week is Steve Norman, Owen Hughes, Tony Black and Brian Plank.

The quiz was cut from the final audio due to being incredibly shit. Sorry. Maybe doing anagrams on the radio is not a great idea. But if you want to play along, you can find the questions that Steve et al struggled through at the bottom of this bumf.

Elsewhere on the show: Steve reviewed BBC’s dark comedy series Stag which has just been added to Netflix; Tony gets to grips with the new Star Trek Discovery episodes as well as sports drama Borg McEnroe; Brian watches the “very strange” Mr Biffo’s Found Footage; and Owen is back on Shudder once again to watch the remastered 70’s cult classic Phantasm.

We’ll be back next week (hopefully) with another podcast of some description. Probably about Blade Runner.
