New to Failed Critics? Try our ‘Best of 2016’ compilation episode!

It’s just gone midnight on Christmas Eve, which means those of you who have managed stay up past your bedtime and wait for Father Christmas can officially open one of your presents early! I’ve got the perfect one for you, right here…

This brand new episode is a three and a half hour long ‘best of’ the Failed Critics Podcast from the past 12 months, all cobbled together into some kind of Christmas TV type compilation episode. There’s all of our favourite bits, including Paul’s famous quizzes, reviews of Mob Handed and Killer Bitch, every single booby-prize that Owen and Steve put each other through, all of our pre-titles and post-credit stingers, and loads more.

It’s not gift wrapped. It’s not store-bought. There’s no receipt so you can’t go and exchange it for any other podcast during the Boxing Day sales. But hopefully it’ll keep you company should you be enduring any agonisingly long car journeys over this festive period.

Merry Christmas all and a happy new year from everyone here at Failed Critics!

Failed Critics Quizcast: Walk Right In

quizcast-logo

You may have noticed that no podcast was published last week. Well, consider this week’s special Quizcast episode our apology. An episode was recorded, but there was no time to edit it between then and this week’s episode – hence why it’s just gone 4.09am and here I am trying to publish in time for people’s commutes on Tuesday!

In our second quizcast of the year, we’re rejoined by the FUTstock podcast’s (previously FUThead) Matt Aguilera and Matt Lambourne after April’s triumph. Making their debuts on the quizcast special are Ben Challoner and Daryl Bar from Sudden Double Deep, the triple bill title podcast.

In a strange turn of events, we actually let Paul Field onto an episode that’s entirely a quiz, despite his wretched run…. But not to worry, we’ve made him host so that Owen Hughes and Steve Norman can compete together as a team – we presume Steve was not aware of Owen’s dismal losing streak in our previous attempts to win this thing.

We’ll be back as normal next week.

Failed Critics Quizcast: Return of the Matt

quizcast logo

Hey listeners, the episode title is a nice little 90’s earworm for you as we party like it’s 1999. It’s our birthday! We’re going to party like it’s our birthday – because, as I mentioned, it is actually our birthday. Today, in fact! The Failed Critics Podcast has hit yet another milestone and reached our fourth birthday. Hip hip…

Usually, it’d be up to the guests (i.e. you) to get the birthday-boys (i.e. us) presents, but it’s cool. We know it’s been a tough year for you and, you know, who really cares about presents at our age, right? I mean, we’re not mad. Sure, a little disappointed but that’s society’s fault. No, really, don’t feel bad. Forget I even mentioned it. Here, we’ve got you something instead.

The first ever (and given the amount of time and effort, the only ever) issue of the Failed Critics Magazine – in a handy to download and read pdf format: FailedCriticsMagIssue001.

There’s articles on Brooker’s favourite films of the year so far; Steve has finally put finger to keyboard on his oft heralded Die Hard concept; and Owen has written a fairly lengthy history on how Failed Critics came to be. It’s only 10 pages long and hopefully will find somebody out there interested in reading it.

We also celebrate on the podcast with a brand new Quizcast! Steve Norman retains his comfortable seat as quizmaster, meaning Carole Petts joins team Failed Critics alongside Owen Hughes. Both Tony Black and Matt Latham return to represent reigning champions Black Hole Media. In a shock twist, Matt Lambourne has switched sides; once a representative of Failed Critics, he now joins his partner in crime, Matt Aguilera, of the Futhead Podcast.

We’ll return to our regular podcast next week, but until then, happy birthday everyone! Thanks for either downloading the podcast or visiting the website over the past four years. We love you all ok bye.
