Abi was watching wrestling (of course) and thought of Al Pacino (obviously!), so this week the Spoiler Filled Crew are watching Serpico, a gritty slice of 70’s cinematic americana based on the life of cop, whistleblower and all-round cool dude Frank Serpico. This time around Abi herself is pressured into whistleblowing, Rich dreams of slapstick crossovers, Jamie keeps reminding us that everybody is dead and everyone marvels at the many, many beards of Al Pacino.

Our humblest apologies, dear listeners but our technical woes have returned and our show will be late again this week. Hopefully we will get to the bottom of it this time and sort it out once and for all. Sorry. Again.
Jamie and Rich get their testosterone on this week talking about cars, punks, aliens, vaporisations, conspiracies and midnight movies as they discuss cult sci-fi comedy film Repo Man. Join them as they wonder what happened to Emilio Estevez, plant love and kisses on Harry Dean Stanton, the punk soundtrack, the ‘wackiness’ of it all and trust them to find the Welsh trash-lady reference.

We never go too long on Spoiler Filled without shoehorning in wrestling somehow and my, does ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper provide the ‘perfect package’ this time round with Hell Comes to Frogtown, a post-apocalyptic, cult B-Movie from the late Eighties. Or should we call it a soft-core porn parody of Mad Max? Well, at least it attempts to be progressive in a movie including: amazonian-esque warrior nurses, governmental chastity devices, all the wrong reasons to not rape someone and the mystery of the Dance of the Three Snakes.
