Failed Critics Podcast: Episode 202 – AND IT’S LIVE!

202 live stream printscreen

Firstly, thanks to everyone who joined in on our live broadcast of episode 202 on our YouTube channel on Monday. We’re considering it a success – whether it was or wasn’t isn’t really up to Steve Norman, Owen Hughes and Andrew Brooker to decide! But people chatted to us during the show, we received messages via Twitter, and the live stream didn’t crash once. Huzzah!

This week’s podcast is pretty much a rip of the YouTube video edited into a more audio-friendly format. Jingles have been edited in, whilst the majority the references to stuff that happened visually that wouldn’t have made sense on an audio only podcast have been edited out.

What has been left in is our chat about this week’s film news, including another new Netflix movie acquisition starring Will Smith, directed by David Ayer, plus a set-top box that could potentially change the way we view cinema releases forever.

We’ve also got our round up of what we’ve been watching. Steve talks us through the generic but decent action film London Has Fallen; Owen discusses the first five episodes of the second season of Daredevil; and Brooker does his homework ahead of Batman v Superman by re-watching Nolan’s trilogy plus Man of Steel. Our new release reviews saw the team take in the safe-for-work porcelain doll horror The Boy, Ben Wheatley’s latest weird class-war narrative High Rise, and the thematic sequel to 2008’s monster movie, 10 Cloverfield Lane.

There’s even room for our regular film quiz and Steve’s reaction to Pudsey the Dog: The Movie, his booby-prize for losing last week’s quiz. Oh, and Owen’s mad rapping skills. Wiki-wiki-wild wild west…

Join us again next week as things return to normal for a review of DC’s newest blockbuster.

202nd Episode Extravaganza (sort of)

Listeners to the podcast may have picked up recently that we have already zoomed past episode number 200 with little to no fanfare.


Shambolic as ever, we intend to do something slightly new and exciting for our 202nd episode. Something… different… to episode 150, with Steve Norman, Owen Hughes, Andrew Brooker and Paul Field, which went on for over five gruelling hours.

We thought we’d spare you (and ourselves) a repeat of that torturous – although admittedly fun to record – night of drinking, triple-triple bills and losing the will to live. Instead, today we are live streaming our 202nd episode via our YouTube channel and we want you to get involved.

Send us questions, shout (well, write) profanities at us or simply watch along without arousing suspicion. The choice is yours! But we kinda hope you’ll choose to ask us stuff. The only thing that will make this worth doing is your interaction.

Follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook to receive a link to the live broadcast shortly before it happens, or subscribe to our YouTube channel.

See you later!
