There’s no two ways about it (unfortunately for our world famous puns), all of the Spoiler Filled crew fell a little bit in love this week with with the classic 1930’s movie Doctor Jekyll & Mr Hyde. But how can a somewhat-hokey-to-a-modern-audience film elicit such such joy in the somewhat notoriously cynical gang? Tune in now to find out!

This week we set our sights on what is considered one of the best student films ever created….No wait! Come back listeners! This is not your usual student film full of hokey acting, cheap sets and bad special effects….well, not too much of it anyways. Not when the student in question is John Carpenter!Dark Star is the expanded version of Carpenter’s original student film about four men on a deteriorating spaceship in deep space going a bit loopy. Beach-ball aliens, makeshift musical instruments, philosophizing bombs and surfing on space debris are all highlights in this original and off-beat concept.

[Ep. 193, Rec 02/2018]
This week Rich and Abi (occasionally channeling Jamie) are the last peeps standing so decide to talk about the 1998 comedy-drama-history-romance Shakespeare In Love. They talk gender reversals, being a bit mumsie and why Shakespeare is the worst thing in it. Also, bubbies. Sorry, BUBBIES!
(P.S. Abi forgot Mark Williams, Simon Day and Patrick Barlow. If she forgot anyone else, she’s very sorry!)
Oh, the early Nineties! What were you thinking?! Stop trying to be an overblown, louder version of the 80s. That being said, we would never have been left with Freaked to sink our claws into, a film that revels in it’s extreme ugliness, crudeness and stupidity. Can it succeed in giving the the Spoiler Filled Crew a modicum of enjoyment despite that annoying MTV era attitude? Tune in to find out!
