Episode 170: Top 10 TV Shows That Should Get the Movie Treatment / Sicario: Day of the Soldado
Most have questioned it; many have doubted it would ever happen. But it is now official: Television is BACK on the Countdown!
This week Paul and Wayne honour the pledge of another Number One Patron and exceptional all round person, Sally Vaughan, in giving their Top 10 TV Shows Which Should Get the Movie Treatment. Be it a sequel or reboot, the guys list their favourite shows which they'd love to see on the big screen and explain how they'd make the transition. Things start our innocuoulsy enough, but it's only a matter of time before choices cause incredulity, inflammatory remarks and temporary insanity - and not just in Paul. Ohhhh!
The lads also find time to squeeze in a review of Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which opened to very little fanfare or buzz this last week. Does it hold up to the original? Or is it a pale imitator?
Hunker down for some snide banter, sputtering objections and utterly needless soundboard drops (Edit: Wayne wrote that bit) as the Countdown Continues!
