Flight Through Entirety: A Doctor Who Podcast

A wise man once said, “You can do loads in twelve minutes. Suck a mint, buy a sledge, have a fast bath.” Tonight, Brendan, Nathan, James and canonical friend-of-the-podcast Conrad Westmaas find out just what Paul McGann can do in just seven minutes and nine seconds. Turns out, quite a lot. It's The Night of the Doctor. Watch the story! The Night of the Doctor was originally released on BBC iPlayer on 14 November 2013. It is included as a special feature on the DVD and Blu-ray releases of The Day of the Doctor, which means you probably have it on a shelf somewhere. Failing that, it is also available on YouTube. Notes and links The second, completely unmemorable prequel to The Day of the Doctor is called The Last Day, and can also be found on YouTube. It's included here merely for the sake of completeness: you don't have to go and watch it or anything. There will be a lot of talk this week about Steven Moffat's novelisation of The Day of the Doctor (2018), so let's start by admitting that Nathan gives the wrong chronological order here. From our point of view, it goes Tennant, Smith, Hurt, but from the Doctor's point of view it goes Hurt, Tennant, Smith. Which is just the sort of nonsense that you either love/hate about Moffat. For Conrad — and for the rest of us too, really — this episode is the sequel to The Brain of Morbius, which we discussed way back in Episode 41: Philip Madoc in Fishnets. For fans of a certain age, Paul McGann will always be I in Withnail & I (1987), alongside titular Doctor Who villain Richard E Grant. Every weekend was very much like that film in the late 80s and early 90s, apparently. River Song snogs Colin Baker's Doctor (spoilers!) in a Big Finish story called World Enough and Time, part of The Diary of River Song, Series 2. Brendan says that it's proper romantic. And finally, Conrad sent us this photo of Ohila's costume alongside the Eighth Doctor's costume for this episode. The hat that forms part of Ohila's costume is just the sort of magnificent nonsense an accomplished actress might refuse to wear on set. Follow us Nathan is on Twitter as @nathanbottomley, Brendan is @brandybongos, James is @ohjamessellwood and Conrad is @HairoftheHound_. The Flight Through Entirety theme was arranged by Cameron Lam.

Flight Through Entirety: A Doctor Who Podcast

This week, we're spending a relaxing afternoon on sunny Trenzalore, chatting with friends, visiting people we've lost, solving a mystery, bringing up an age-old question, and generally getting everything neatly squared away before the fireworks start this November. It's The Name of the Doctor. Notes and links Nathan's rant about giving the Doctor unnecessary backstory in The War Games Part 10 can be heard on the Jodie into Terror episode on The Timeless Children. Earlier this year, Nathan appeared on a podcast called Pull to Open, with Pete Pachal and Chris Taylor, and in every episode they theorise about where you might find Clara in this Doctor Who story. You can hear Nathan's theory about Clara's role in The Claws of Axos here. Here's El Sandifer's essay on The Name of the Doctor, and this is how she describes Richard E Grant as the Great Intelligence: “But Grant is putting no effort into the part, playing him as a cliched bit of leering smugness. Which is, of course, exactly what the part calls for – a big name actor basically phoning it in.” And finally: Nathan has a habit of making fun of Chris Chibnall's minimalist approach to publicising Doctor Who by repeatedly posting a screencap of Art Malik from the exciting trailer at the end of The Woman Who Fell to Earth. You can see him in action here. Follow us Nathan is on Twitter as @nathanbottomley, Brendan is @brandybongos, Todd is @toddbeilby and Simon is @simonmoore72.

When others share their grief, it gives us permission to feel it ourselves. That's what Richard E Grant has learnt over the last year as he's shared every part of his own grieving process online. His wife Joan died in 2021, but before she did she told Richard he must try to find a ‘pocketful of happiness' in each day. In this chat with Fearne, he explains why being given permission to be happy was so powerful. They also talk about how to set boundaries with family members, especially during difficult times, and how a trauma can show who your friends really are. Richard's memoir, A Pocketful of Happiness, is out now. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Damn! Late with an episode AGAIN! Hi, friend. Yes, It's me, Marc Hershon, your every-other-weekly-co-host for Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. And double damn if I'm not dropping this Episode 324 a day late and a dollar short. To be honest, me and your co-host Tyson Saner are WAY more than a dollar short. Just a reminder that we're basically producing this show for the love of the Art that is Soundcasting. We still have no real sponsors, just that freeloading Henderson's Pants outfit. Which means we're putting our time with no recompense, and I'm shelling out dough-dee-oh-dough out of my pocket for the production costs. That's 11+ years of taking on the chin for this medium! We used to have a Donate button but I'm not sure what happened to it. We are technically Amazon Associates but I don't know where those links that brought in our pittance went, either. Maybe we should do the Patreon thing? I don't know. You guys just want to Venmo us some money? Hey. THAT could work. Let's give it a try. Open up your Venmo app and send along what you want. A buck? FIVE bucks? A ten-spot? TWENTY Dollars?! Just Venmo it me – my handle is @Hershco. That's the @ sign and H-E-R-S-H-C-O. Shoot along a little message and we'll give you muchos gracias on the show! Has any soundcast even attempted this before? Let's make history!!! Speaking of history, last week in this very same feed you could catch the aforementioned Tyson Saner holding court for Epi323, and he had a cavalcade of comedy soundcast clippage for you. Well, three clips. Is that enough to, technically, be a cavalcade? I'm not sure. Let's look it up… Hmm. “Cavalcade. Noun. Definition 1: A procession of riders or ships. Definition 2: A dramatic sequence or procession: SERIES.” So there. Last week's show was definitely a cavalcade. Way to go, Tyson! You can still catch that show, “The Autumn Triple Play”, which included snippets from On The Rocks: Where Celebrities & Cocktails Mix, Gutting the Sacred Cow, and Chatabix. The episode still resides on Apple and Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, Amazon Music, iHeart Radio, Audible.com, Soundcloud, Podchaser, Podbay, and wherever finer soundcasts are streamed and/or download. That includes our own homesite, SuccotashShow.com, which contains the entire treasure trove of installments dating back to 2011. For this week's late-to-the-party-pal mess, which I'm calling “Debate, Argument, Brits & Smut”, you're in for some clips from If I Were You, The Legal Geeks, Off Menu, and Pornomedy. Henderson's Pants is once again riding our coattails with a freebie spot for their classic BauTrau Pants – classic because the references in the commercial are so damn old. CLIPS If I Were YouOur first clip comes from a show that has just passed the 560 episode mark! It's If I Were You, from HeadGum, and featuring hosts Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld. Both these guys are all over HeadGum because they've been there since it started. This show, If I Were You, drops every Monday and features the host-ages offering advice in realms that they both are and are not qualified to speak on. They invite listeners to send in their own “sticky situations” as they put, and they will try to help find a solution.Our clip comes from their milestone Epi560, entitled Mile High Club, and their listener query gets them talking about UFOs and ghosts. The Legal GeeksThis next clip is from not only a show I mentioned I was going to be on, namely The Legal Geeks, but it's from the show I WAS on and, in fact, features me along with show host Joshua Gilliland and some other attorneys. He co-hosts the show with Jessica Mederson but she was traveling the week I was asked to be an “expert witness” along with a bunch of other legal eagles, including Gregory Pang and a cast of their regulars. The show's entitled “Review of The She-Hulk: Attorney-at-Law – Episode 5” and, because my day job finds me in the world of branding, trademarks, and other such intellectual property, or “IP”, Josh invited me along to ring on some of the trademark issues that the Jessica Walters character (played by Tatiana Maslany) has to tangle with in that episode. Namely, She-Hulk gets sued for trademark infringement over the use of the She-Hulk name by one of her enemies. Backstory on The Legal Geeks soundcast: These real lawyers, headed up by Josh and Jessica, sound off on legal issues faced by fictional characters – everything from the MCU to the Star Wars Universe. Not just on the soundcast, but they show up to places like ComicCon in San Diego and run mock trials based on situations that crop up in these TV shows, movies, comic books, and so forth. Definitely check ‘em out! Off MenuThis next soundcast is where the “Brits” part of this week's title comes from. It's Off Menu, featuring a pair of British comedians, Ed Gamble and James Acaster. Each episode, they invite a guest into what they term their “magical restaurant” to choose their favorite starter (that's an appetizer to us Yanks), main course, side dish, dessert, and drink. It's all just a glorious excuse to deep dive into heady – and sometimes silly – convo with their guests. A recent episode featured the fantastic, amazing, and England's national treasure Richard E. Grant. This clip goes form the silly to the sublime, as Richard slides into how his late wife's last wish fueled his recently released memoir, A Pocketful of Happiness. PornomedyLast show off the bench today is only so because of alphabetization. It's a new soundcast, just a few episodes in, entitled Pornomedy. It's hosted by a good friend of Succotash, Monica Hamburg, who has not only had a couple of soundcasts over the past bunch of years that we've been on, but was our special guest co-host WAY back on Episode 64 in July of 2013, almost 10 years ago. She sent in this clip of Pornomedy, along with a note from which I quote the following: “Hi Marc: I hope you are doing well! So... I started a new podcast recently. "Pornomedy" which explores the weird world of free porn sites: Absurd porn comments (as though any aren't!), terrible titles, baffling tags - and more. This time, hilarious Baltimore comedian Mike Moran joins me. We speak of "The Chair" (i.e. It-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named) - as well as a porn commenter with maximum game, the right time to rent a truck for your porn film - and much more! This is only the 3rd episode of this new podcast (though it's on the feed with all the other shows I've done) but I like it. I hope you will too! (Of course, as always, no pressure if it's not right for the show ,etc.) Not right for the show – pfft! Oh, Monica, you DO go on! Okay, friend. That's about enough of that. And by “that” I mean this Episode 324 of Succotash. If you want more, there are always the archives OR pour some fresh Succotash into your ears next week when Tyson Saner brings you episode 325, which is sure to delight. I'm out of here but not before reminding you that if you're even wandering down a dark, lonely street in the middle of the night, and a shimmering figure emerges from the darkness and floats a few inches off the payment towards you to ask, “Have you heard anything good lately?”, won't you please pass the Succotash? — Marc Hershon

Steve Martin apparently worked on the script for L.A. STORY for seven years before he and director Mick Jackson brought this romantic fantasy comedy to the big screen in 1991. Martin plays Harris K. Telemacher, a depressed weather presenter, trapped in an unfulfilling relationship with his socialite girlfriend and disheartened by the superficiality of the Los Angeles scene. After being dumped by his girlfriend and receiving cryptic relationship advice from a freeway sign he begins to fall for Sara, an English journalist - from London of course - writing an article about Los Angeles for the London Times. With that relationship complicated by Sara's pledge to reconcile with her ex-husband (Richard E Grant), Telemacher begins dating SanDeE* (Sarah Jessica Parker), a ditzy clothing store assistant and only an improbable weather based emergency will ensure the smooth running of the course of true love.Witty and full of eccentricity, time has not been kind to some of the romantic elements of the story but the sharp, fast-paced comedy still remains entertaining and amusing.

On this episode of Death By DVD we've gone on holiday by mistake. The 1987 British black comedy WITHNAIL & I is discussed at length! Possibly the quintessential British movie, join THE Linus Fitness-Centre & Harry-Scott as they pour a shot of lighter fluid and get into the politics of WITHNAIL & I. Two out-of-work actors -- the anxious, luckless Marwood (Paul McGann) and his acerbic, alcoholic friend, Withnail (Richard E. Grant) -- spend their days drifting between their squalid flat, the unemployment office and the pub. When they take a holiday "by mistake" at the country house of Withnail's flamboyantly gay uncle, Monty (Richard Griffiths), they encounter the unpleasant side of the English countryside: tedium, terrifying locals and torrential rain.This is an episode you DON'T wanna miss!

This week on Fabulous Film & Friends it's round four of the seemingly endless Coppola v. Scorsese Film Battle, where we shift gears downward with two problematic, others might say misunderstood, passion projects in both maestros' respective canons, as we compare Martin Scorsese's 1988 semi-Biblical epic  The Last Temptation of Christ, starring Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Barbara Hershey, Barry Miller,  Andre Gregory, Irvin Kershner and David Bowie to Francis Ford Coppola's take on Bram Stoker's Dracula, released in 1992 and starring Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu Reeves, Cary Elwes, Richard E. Grant, Bill Campbell and Tom Waits. Joining me in this epic clash of blood, life, death and resurrection are my sister Roseanne Caputi, actor, photographer, and erstwhile cycle-jockey, Gordon Alex Robertson and celebrated author, producer and everyone's favorite gadfly George Young who has just announced that his Vampire-themed novel DracuLAND is due to hit the store shelves Halloween of 2022.  With so much ground to cover here are two brief synopses:The Last Temptation of Christ reimagines the life and impact of Jesus Christ through the lens of an unwilling, doubtful, mood swinging, weakling who has less sense of purpose than your average over-priced New York Plumber. And with all the Brooklyn accents in the film, you'd think the plumbers' union delegation took a wrong turn at Poughkeepsi and ended up in The Holy Land.  Meanwhile Bram Stoker's Dracula breaks up the legendary novel about the infamous  Blood-sucking Count Dracula  into three distinct, competing and non-complimentary films: 1) a not so erotic tale of swooning eroticism and temptation, 2) a keystone cops movie starring four bland and bumbling supporting actors who look and act exactly alike, save the one who sounds like he stepped off of a surfer turned bank robbers film and  3) a glib action movie starring an entertaining, beef-eating German vampire hunter)  Are these misunderstood gems or just flat out turkeys?Find out!  

Flight Through Entirety: A Doctor Who Podcast

Christmas, 1892: The Doctor has retired from saving the universe after a disastrous mid-series finale earlier in the year. He is cheered up somewhat by his encounter with a feisty young barmaid, who is intrigued enough to follow the Doctor home, only to learn a valuable and ultimately fatal lesson about the importance of railings. Richard E Grant is here too, as usual, delivering his lines through heroically clenched teeth. It's The Snowmen. Notes and Links We refer to Clara several times as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl — a quirky female character whose main purpose in the narrative is to pull the male hero out of an emotional funk. The phrase itself was coined by a critic called Nathan Rabin, who has since said that he regretted ever coming up with the term. Saul Metzstein, who directed this episode and several other successful Doctor Who episodes in Series 7, would go on to work as second unit director on the disastrous 2017 flop The Snowman, now best known for its terrible marketing campaign and for the fact that its protagonist was a character called Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender). By 2013, Richard E Grant had twice played non-canon Doctors: He was the Ninth Doctor of Paul Cornell's animated webcast Scream of the Shalka, which launched a whole new version of Doctor Who in 2003 in a parallel universe nearly adjacent to this one. He also played the Tenth Doctor (aka the Quite Handsome Doctor) in Steven Moffat's first ever Doctor Who story The Curse of Fatal Death, broadcast as part of Red Nose Day in 1999. You can watch it here, and you should. And our last trope for the day is fridging, which means killing a female character solely for the effect it has on the male hero. I can't think how this one came up. Follow us Nathan is on Twitter as @nathanbottomley, Simon is @simonmoore72, and Todd is @ToddBeilby. The Flight Through Entirety theme was arranged by Cameron Lam.

[School of Movies 2022] A cult British classic made in 1987, set in 1969 and an utter failure at the box office. With the advent of affordable videos in the 1990s this one later became very popular with students who warmed to its story of two out of work actors living in ridiculous squalor. It's insanely quotable and darkly funny if you have the corresponding frequency of humour (I think I'm going to use this term in future. It's not a binary thing and that misconception is used all too often as a limp shield for crappy comedian behaviour). Richard E. Grant plays Withnail, a persistently drunken, excessively verbose drama queen. Paul McGann play's "I" (whose uncredited name is Marlowe) a mousy, skittish neurotic afraid of being attacked by a hostile world of beefy, aggressive men.  Together the pair of them borrow Withnail's Uncle Monty's cottage in Penrith and have an impromptu holiday to escape their troubles, only to find they have brought them along too. They are pitiful wretches and we should loathe them, but it's easy to feel sympathy and empathy all the same. This one deals with some confused issues of unexplored homosexuality and predatory behaviour (fuelled by the writer/director's own unfortunate experiences as a young man), so you may have to bear with it until the full context is unfolded. But it would be entirely understandable if you want to put a pin in this for later.

I'm Rowan Ellis and welcome to one of a couple of brand new types of episodes that we'll be releasing between our usual queer Movie Club episodes. This is hot takes, where I'll be joined by a guest who's come ready to go with three Queer Movie hot takes that they'll need to persuade me of in three arguments or less. I'm very excited to have my friend and shameless Marvel fanboy Corry as our first ever guest of the show. Hi, Corry. CORRY:  Hello, Rowan. And hello everyone listening. Wow. ROWAN:  What an intro. CORRY:  I love that your intro for me now is always Marvel, despite the fact that I'm not always talking about Marvel. I feel like I should have bought a Marvel thing today. ROWAN:  Here's the thing, if you send me 1000 voice memos about every Marvel show that's ever come out. That's going to be my go to introduction for you, you need to send me voice notes about whatever you want to be known for. In order for me to now change your introduction. CORRY:  You're you're already getting yourself in to so--you're you're, you're not going to enjoy all the voices I'm going to be sending you after this then unfiltered-- ROWAN:  No I love a good voice mate. So you are our very, very first guest on this new show. And you have not told me your hot takes in advance which I'm very excited to find out and and hear all of your reasonings and your ar--and your arguments and all that stuff. So I have no idea if I'm going to be fully in support of what you're saying. Or utterly outraged at everything you have to bring to the table today. So would you like to hit me with hot take number one? CORRY:  Okay. I think hot take number one is an easier one. Hot take number one, all love triangles would be improved, if the characters were bi, every single one. ROWAN:  I am obsessed with this already. Okay, so take take me through this. Give me Give me your argument. CORRY:  Okay. So, before I do little argument number one, I'll just give a little bit of an explanation. ROWAN:  Oh, yeah. Give me the explanation. CORRY:  When I say love triangle, I mean any love polygon. So any any number of shapes you want for people to be in love would be improved by all of the characters, not just some, all of the characters being by I'm saying this out loud. I'm realizing how ridiculous this sounds ROWAN:  No commit commit to the bit, Corry. CORRY:  Argument number one, is that it is more interesting, because there are more interactions, all right. You've got a normal love triangle. Okay, let's use Twilight as an example. Something that I haven't even I haven't even watched all the Twilight movies. Twilight, you've got Bella, you've got Edward and you've got Jacob, right? And Jacob and Edward both like Bella, but they can't like each other because they're straight boys. You know, it doesn't work. ROWAN:  Hmm. CORRY:  You've just got Bella is this intersection. But if Edward and Jacob were to like each other, boom. What if Edward and Jacob got together? That's another interaction there. It's a perfect way to sort of have some more. There's there's more going on there more character interactions. You don't have just people, "Oh, I hate you because you want the same girl that I want". It's a case of what if I want you too? ROWAN:  Ooh. CORRY:  More interactions, means more better. ROWAN:  Okay, so already, I have a a potential comment on the example that you've chosen to use, which is that and I think that because you haven't finished all of the Twilight movies or books. This might have passed you by and that's why you've chosen this particular example. But are you aware that this loved supposed love triangle is in fact a love square? And the fourth corner of the square is Bella and Edward's infant child. CORRY:  I'm look I'm well aware of Renesmee and I detest her name. I detest almost everything that happens is to do with that character. And I like to just pretend that she doesn't exist, because then we have to get into the conversation of does imprinting, did that come into love triangles? Is it not a love triangle and then an imprinting square if you add that in? I don't know. ROWAN:  So I think your hot take is your hot take is love polygons would be improved if everyone was bisexual, and there was no imprinting like in brackets asterisk, like also no imprinting. CORRY:  Oh, absolutely. I think also no Imprinting is it's just an addendum to my life at this point. That's how that's how much impact these films that I haven't fully watched have had on me, yes. ROWAN:  Did, yeah, just assume every hot take from now on both Corry's and you know what everyone who comes to the show has an asterisk, that's also also no imprinting. And I fully support that I've got no arguments here. CORRY:  Fantastic precedent to set. ROWAN:  So okay, hi--hi hit me with your second argument, cuz you're making a strong one so far, this does seem like it would add add to the drama add to the connections. CORRY:  Okay, good, I'm glad. I've built this one, just I I've actually structured this one, I think quite well. So the first argument is more interactions, but more interactions means more outcomes, okay. So if there's more outcomes, then you you're left guessing like, what's going to happen? Is Edward going to end up with Jacob? Is Bella going to end up with Edward or Ja--? Who knows? We don't know. There are more outcomes. And so you don't you know, usually when you're watching a film, you're like, Oh, well, this character is obviously gonna end up with that character. But if there's a love square, gosh, you've got so many different interactions and people can people can end up with each other. Also also, you can have the coveted polycule. You can have a little get a little thruple going on there as well. So many things happening. You left guessing you don't know films just become far, far better. Because there's so many more options to choose from. You don't have to go with just like, you know, the first boyfriend or the other one the bad boy that comes in. In the second film. Again, I'm talking about Twilight. I hope that I'm being accurate because I haven't seen it. Well, maybe the Hunger Games. What if Gale and Peeta ended up together huh? ROWAN:  Hmm. CORRY:  That'd be interesting. What if Katniss just left because she doesn't care about either of them. That would make more sense. ROWAN:  You're not wrong it would, it in fact would. My favorite part of, I can't remember if it's in the films, but in the books when she's trying to decide between them. She functionally is like, Okay, well, this one bakes bread. But this one hunts, but I can hunt. But I can't bake bread, I guess it's Peeta. And yeah, I feel like that would be maybe improved if the boys had had other options. And just waiting to see whether  she needed someone who could bake bread or hunt more. CORRY:  We--this is because I think this is a really a really good example as well. I'm glad you brought this up, because I'm pretty sure that well, he bakes bread and he hunts is in the book, because there's not really a huge love triangle in the book. It's more focused on, you know, the PTSD of having to kill numerous children. ROWAN:  Mmm mmm, Of course, of course. CORRY:  Yeah. Which the film interestingly chose to set aside in favor of which hot boy do I want. Now if the film chose to set that aside in favor of which hot boy do I want? But also, do the hot boys want each other? Perfect. It it's so much better because which hot boy do I want would absolutely take over your life in place of that PTSD from-- ROWAN:  From the Hunger Games. CORRY:  --getting rid all of those kids. Yeah. ROWAN:  This is very much reminding me of you know those puzzles where there's a shape and then in the shape, there are triangles. And it's like how many triangles in this shape? And at first-- CORRY:  Yeah. ROWAN:  --I think there's just one triangle and then there's so many more. I feel like this is like there's so many combinations you could go to because we're only talking right now about Edward, Bella and Jacob or Katniss, Gale and Peeta. But you could have Katniss, Gale, Peeta, Edward, Bella and Jacob. CORRY:  That's I've got I've got one I've got I've got one who like all the stops. ROWAN:  Okay, take me-- CORRY:  A Midsummer Night's Dream. ROWAN:  Huh. CORRY:  Boom. Every single person falling in love with every single other person across gender lines. ROWAN:  Incredible. CORRY:  And then ending up together in the end. Wow. Perfect. Even get Bottom in there. Amazing. ROWAN:  He, yeah, obviously. I doubt there was no question that the that Bottom was going to be part of his equation. But Bottom human or or Bottom donkey? CORRY:  I think the top was donkey, the bottom was human. ROWAN:  There we go. It's all-- CORRY:  Right? ROWAN:  --all of the above. This, this is making a lot of sense to me. To be honest, I kind of wanted to find some kind of hole in your argument. But ultimately, it's just making sense to me. And I think that as well, because you you added in there polyamory I feel like that adds another level to it. Which I only appreciate more. You know what I mean? Like this is all this is all making sense. Okay, I guess here's a counter argument. Are we tired of love triangles all together? Is there a hotter take where we just take love triangles off the table? CORRY:  I thought this, I'm glad that you've said this. Because I've got argument number three. ROWAN:  Hit me. CORRY:  Which is, I think a direct answer to this. The reason that love triangles are boring. We don't want love triangles anymore. It's because there's no stakes. It's which pretty boy will you choose? Which pretty girl will you choose? Non-binary people don't come into this because non-binary people aren't in films. But if if we have every character in a love triangle be bisexual, there are more stakes. Because of the two things I've said already. The more interactions and more outcomes. There's more at stake here. There's more to lose, there's more to gain. It's way more interesting. It's way more exciting. The only reason love triangles are boring though is because we've got to see which which straight couple is going to be straight. But if they could all end up together, perfect resolution, everyone's happy and no one sad. It's so much better. ROWAN:  Have you seen this particular hot taken action before? Do you have any examples of love triangles that you've seen? Where we you know, this is a theory right now, you're a science boy, from what I remember of science when I did to do it as a child, you got a hypothesis and you've got to test it. Do we have any examples currently or is this new waters that we're entering with this concept? CORRY:  I'm going to go out on a limb and I'm going to say the first Scooby Doo film is an example of this. I choose to believe that the Mystery Gang they are not they are not simply four friends. They are a polycule. They're they're a little group of polyamorous pals hanging out together solving mysteries. ROWAN:  So, far be it for me to question. The additional hot take you've added on to this one with the theory that the Scooby gang are in fact a polyamorous like quadrant and dog. What evidence Have you bought to me to to say that this is happening? And this is this is working as a relationship as a love square. CORRY:  I'm going to be honest, Rowan it's just vibes. It's just it's pure vibes. ROWAN:  And you know what that is the heart of Queer Cinema. To be honest, Corry, vibes is what we had for a very long time. We've only really had solid evidence for a short few decades. And so in in this court of Queer Cinema, vibes do count as evidence. CORRY:  Fantastic. I'm so glad, have I have I convinced you? Do I win? Have I have I won? ROWAN:  I wish I had some kind of sound effects to like a bell or something that could be like ding, ding, you've won. Yes, I fully already was on board. As soon as you said it. I I also think that this would be much more interesting. And I feel like this is a an immediate sell for me. If if someone was to come up to me and say, "Hey, read this book. It's got a love triangle. But it's a proper triangle". It's not just like an angle. CORRY:  Exactly. ROWAN:  Without a third line joining the the last two points. It is a full triangle. I'm there. I don't have to know anything else about the book like I'm intrigued. So yeah you already had me and and giving me those arguments giving those examples hinging it on Twilight, a bold move, but I think it paid off in the end because it is such a classic love triangle that I think could only be improved by the bold decision to not have one of them be in love with a fetus. So that that-- CORRY:  Good Lord. ROWAN:  -- completely convinced. Ding ding ding. Would you like to bring me hot take number two? If on the hot on the hottakeometer. Is this spicier? Is this hotter? CORRY:  Yeah, I think this is, you know, I think it's increasing in levels of spice, you know-- ROWAN:  Love that. CORRY:  It definitely in levels of my own personal spice. We're going to we're going to be getting very heated towards the end. This this-- ROWAN:  I'm excited. CORRY:  --little one. I think it's a little bit hotter. In fact, I'm I'm so bold that I've included only a single single argument because I am so confident with this one. ROWAN:  Oh, wow. So listeners at home when I sent Corry the sort of instructions for preparing for this episode. I did say that he could try and convince me in three arguments or less. Now I was kind of thinking that he was going to prepare the three arguments. And then I might just be like, Nope, we only needed that one. It was good enough. But he everyone is so confident in this next hot take. It's only going to take one argument to persuade me and assumably you at home as well. Corry, take it away. CORRY:  Call Me By Your Name, the tentpole groundbreaking gay film of the summer, is not a gay film. ROWAN:  Huh. Everyone, pause for a moment to absorb that when me and Jazza conceived of this format. Truly, we could not have predicted the wild sentences that we're about to come our way from our first guest. Okay, you know what? I've I've absorbed it. I'm I'm I'm ruminating, my brain is going. Hit me with your one and only argument. CORRY:  The characters are not gay. ROWAN:  Okay, so, Corry. CORRY:  Let me elaborate. ROWAN:  For those for those at home who haven't seen this movie or or you know, somehow aren't familiar with it. Can you take us through the plot? Like what is what is this movie about? That might make people assume that these were gay characters? CORRY:  Well, for one thing, there is an awful lot of gay kissing, and sex. But I I I I still maintain that these characters are not gay. So let's use the actor's names because it's much easier for everyone to picture. So Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet are two men, two bros. Timothée Chalamet, he lives with his parents. They've gone to Italy for the summer. And Armie Hammer comes to you know, work with his dad, I think, I assume. And then they hit it off, there's there's a few sparks of love. And they start getting together, and it's a lovely time. And by the end, Armie Hammer has to go back home to America and ends up ending his relationship with Timothée Chalamet. And we find out at the end, that Armie Hammer has a wife that he's going to get married to. Very interesting. ROWAN:  Mmm. CORRY:  And also in the beginning Timothée Chalamet, he has a girlfriend. ROWAN:  Okay, so we have the background info. Give us the reasoning. CORRY:  So the reasoning here is, I think fairly simple. Everyone's called it, "Oh, it's the it's the gay film". Because the main sort of relationship of the film is two men. And so saying that that is a homosexual relationship is, it's kind of true. But also, everyone is very ready to invalidate the fact that at least one of the main characters seems somewhat enthusiastically attracted to women. ROWAN:  Hmm. CORRY:  Right? So Timothée Chalamet, his character, has a girlfriend at at the beginning and has sex with her. And not in a sense of like, "Oh, gosh, I hope no one finds out my secret. I hope no one knows that I'm that I'm a big old gay". He seems happy enough with it, he seems good to go. I don't think there's any reason to assume that he is not attracted to women, just because he's attracted to a man. And, you know, obviously Armie Hammer's character at the end spoilers, I'm sorry. Those end up with a woman. Now. I think that's maybe a little bit more reluctant. But still, there is nothing sort of, as far as I'm aware explicitly in the film to suggest that these characters are both entirely gay men. And so I think saying that it's a gay film. It's not true, it's not true. And also, I really feel like the experiences are far more bisexual than they are anything else. Boom. ROWAN:  You know what? You you came out very controversially. CORRY:  I did. ROWAN:  You did a little twist in there. Because for a second, I was like, How is this boy going to convince me that that peach scene was straight? But you didn't do that at all-- CORRY:  Well we all know what a peach emoji it's supposed to represent, right? ROWAN:  True Love and romance only. Yeah. You you this is this is. So confession time, everyone. And I can't believe I must do this on a podcast literally called the Queer Movie Podcast. I have not seen Call Me By Your Name. CORRY:  Wow, I-- ROWAN:  Yeah. CORRY:  --didn't know that you hated bisexual men so much. ROWAN:  Yeah, it's it's it's been a real struggle for me. And I'm really coming to terms with it now live on the air. Yeah, I just there was just something about Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, age gap romance that just wasn't calling me by any name. And I, so I haven't, I haven't done it. And there was part of me
