Following on from our 'Nuts in May' episode, this week Jev and I discuss Mike Leigh's follow-up, 'Abigail's Party'.
In this brief episode I look at three Woody Allen films - Bananas, Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex and Play It Again Sam- in terms of how much they held up on a 2019 rewatch. So in what ways are they dated, are they still funny and how do the allegations made against Allen affect a viewing of these films.
In this episode Jake and I return to the disaster genre with an episode on 'The Towering Inferno', the classic Steve McQueen and Paul Newman vs a big fire film. And thankfully our conversation is shorter than the film.
Continuing our look at the Seven Up documentary series, Kieran and I discuss '21 Up'.
In this short, solo midweek episode I discuss (generally without spoilers) the films 'Marathon Man' (by John Schlesinger) and 'The Night Porter' (by Liliana Cavani).
We watched it so you don't have to: the Star Wars Holiday Special.
In this episode, Kieran and I conclude our 1970s Disney coverage with a fun conversation on the film 'The Aristocats'.
Another return visit to our sister-podcast the SpielbergPod with a discussion from 2015 on Steven Spielberg's epic film, 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'.
And if you wonder why we don't mention the film 'Arrival' (which would've made a dynamite Companion Piece) it wasn't out at the point of Kieran and I recording this episode. Bloody good film though.
In this episode Paul and I discuss the beautiful and terrifying horror classic by Tobe Hooper, 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre'.
In this mid-week solo episode I discuss two animated films- 'The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' and 'Watership Down'.
Grab your popcorn as Kieran and I debate the Mel Brooks comedy 'Young Frankenstein'.
We also try and find a good post-millennium Tim Burton, we discuss the most recent 'Ghostbusters' film and much more.
In this episode Paul and I discuss the British classic 'The Wicker Man' in a conversation filled with singing, punwork and questionable statements about cannibalism.
[Apologies if the sound quality isn't quite as good as usual. There were technical issues with this recording]
In this NSFW solo mini-episode I discuss two genuinely shocking films from John Waters, 'Pink Flamingos' and 'Female Trouble'. You have been warned!

This week I was delighted to be joined by Rich from the 80s film podcast Betamax Video Club to discuss the Roger Moore 007 classic 'The Spy Who Loved Me'.
In this episode we discuss everyone's favourites, The Muppets, as we discuss their first film 'The Muppet Movie'.
Along the way we discuss the films of Steve Martin,the passing of Burt Reynolds and much more.
Dressed in spray-painted masks of Riker and Captain Janeway (no, not really), Kieran and I discuss the horror classic, 'Halloween' by director John Carpenter. But does it hold up after 40 years?
To celebrate our 50th 1970s episode, Kieran and I discuss a stone-cold classic, Francis Ford Coppola's 'The Godfather'.
And if you want to hear more Godfather discussion go to www.patreon.com/ERRP where supporters of the show can download an exclusive chat on the idea of whether 'The Godfather' could work as a TV show (amongst many other exclusives).
Smile you son of a bitch.... because this week we're talking about the Spielberg classic, 'Jaws'.
Reissuing an episode from our sister show, the SpielbergPod, from a 2015 conversation about the Amity set classic, Paul and I talk about splitting the film into two parts, the notion of a shark terrorising the Isle of Wight, 'Jurassic Park' comparisons, the TV show 'The Affair', the idea of making Brody gay and much, much more.
And to make this a bigger boat we've accompanied this old recording with some new recordings, as me and several of my co-hosts do some 2018 masterclass sessions, doing several dramatic readings of scenes from Jaws. Set sail for a good time people!
In this mid-week solo sesh, I discuss the films 'Dark Star' and 'Assault on Precinct 13' by director John Carpenter.
Finally returning to our coverage of the James Bond films, Kieran and I discuss 'Diamonds Are Forever'.
We also discuss one of the best episodes of The Simpsons, gay henchmen, 'Armageddon' and I give one of the worst recasts you'll hear in a while.
Ship to shore, do you read me anymore? Join Jake and I as we set sail aboard disaster classic, 'The Poseiden Adventure'.
In this episode Paul, Kieran and I boldly go where... probably lots of podcasts have been before as we talk about Star Trek. Specifically, the first Trek film 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' but also touching on all the films and the various TV shows (as well as debating which is better, Double Deckers or Toffee Crisps).
In this episode Kieran and I talk about a multitude of topics as we discuss the film 'Network' by Sidney Lumet.

Oh, and Kieran has a dynamite anecdote about watching 'Catchphrase'.
