We attempted this one before, but our robot overlords tried to quash our efforts (i.e. our recording broke). However, we’re back and we’re more venomous than ever for 1984’s Electric Dreams, which is essentially an extended music video montage about a douche-bag who accidentally creates A.I. and abuses it into romancing his neighbour for him. Ant originally chose this ‘curiosity’, as he describes it, but perhaps has grown to regret it as he comes to learn to never judge a film by its DVD cover. So join him, Rich, Abi and Jamie talk about the awfulness of our leading man, romantic dates on Alcatraz, cello-playing as a personality trait, whether the computer is the most inanimate character in the film and so, SO much more in this 80’s explosion of insanity.
