SOTSM x DITB: Sword of the Stranger


Niall joins Brian and Anthony over on Dynamite In The Brain for a little chat all about one of his favourite films, the sort of rollicking action adventure that doesn't get made often enough these days, along with a quiz about some strange swords. Listen up!

Let’s Go! Episode 5 – TOTTY!


In the absence of Anthony it's finally safe the broach the topic of DD Fist of the North Star and its companion segment Strawberry Flavoured! All that plus the usual siblings, superheroes and sixties nostalgia.

Show #109: Black Dynamite Season 2


You best shut the fuck up when grown folks is talking, especially about Black Dynamite Season 2!

Click Here To Download (Right Click, Save As)

Based on the film of the same name and continuing on from it's last season we follow the ongoing adventures of Black Dynamite and his crew taking down threats to the Black Community and skewering prominent figures alike in their relentlessly irreverent fashion. A much more patchy affair than their last outing, the series occasionally loses focus of where its best humour lies and strays into overly crude territory or often over-recycles some of the best known gags from the film. At it's best though the show offers great if bizarre insight into the pressing societal issues of past and present, because even in our modern age of civil discourse sometimes you just gotta stand up and give your problems a figurative or perhaps literal ass kicking.

THE SHORT VERSION

Social commentary

Prescient parodies

Bad ass mo'fos

Show #108: Fish Police


Dredged up from the deep after being fed to the sharks many years ago, we investigate the strange case of Fish Police.

Click Here To Download (Right Click, Save As)

A pretender to the 90s prime time cartoon throne (held in that era in an iron grip by The Simpsons) Fish Police sounds good on paper, an adaptation of Steve Moncuse's bizarre comic with a prestigious cast including John Ritter, Buddy Hackett and Megan Mulally. The execution is sorely lacking though; too dumb for an older audience with lame humour and stale plotlines and grossly unsuitable for younger viewers, laced with sexual innuendo and other mature content. In attempting to be for everybody it was a show for nobody, only notable now for being a fascinating artifact of animation from the time.

THE SHORT VERSION

Hard-bitten carps

Fish fatales

An all shar(k) cast! (Forgive me...)
