BOWOB - 03x07 - Goal!: The Dream Begins (2005)
It's a schooner of a lineup this time, as Lorcan and Michael are trying to hold the defences up for lng enough for the full time whistle to blow. It's the start of a new trilogy, as a Mexican-American soccer startlet Santiago Munez takes a trip to tha Toon to try to make it as a professional footballer. Will he suceed? Will the Toon Army see Champions League glory? Will the absence of Thom holding the defensive barrier to stop any bullshit banter cause the whole podcast to fall apart? You'll have to listen to the episode to find out.

BOWOB - 03x06 - Zardoz (1974)
We think we broke Michael with this one...
78 minutes | Jun 16, 2021
BOWOB - 03x05 - The Mother (2003)
A widow has an affair with her son's decorator, who is seeing her daughter behind his wife's back. Because they're all middle class that means this is art instead of an episode of Jeremy Kyle.

BOWOB - 03x04 - Take Me High (1973)
The final chapter in the cinematic career of Cliff Richard sees him play a greedy businessman moving to Birmingham and setting up a burger business whilst trying to broker a deal between the warring political factions. It's a musical that can't decide if it's a musical, but will the BOWOB lads decide if it's worthy of derision or an underrated gem? Or will they just drop in so many obscure Brummie references everyone outside of the WMCA will not have a clue what they're on about?

BOWOB - 03x03.5 - Mike Talks Bench Spotting
Our final episode for a little while now sees Lorcan chat to Michael about one of the main ways he kept himself fresh and mentally healthy during this lockdown period - by starting up an Instagram account (@bench_spotting) that documents and reviews benches found not just nearby, but all around the world. Lorcan also provides an update on what the BOWOB release schedule will be going forward. We'll see you in April. But always remember: the joy is in the spotting, not the sitting.

BOWOB - 03x03 - Mad Cows (1999)
It's another example of the excesses of the Britpop late-90s resulting in a mess of a film. Not even the acting powers of Anna Friel, Joanna Lumley, Greg Wise, and many others, adapted from a hit novel that came to embody the "chick lit" era until Bridget Jones turned up, could salvage this tripe. SATIRE!

BOWOB - 03x02.5 - Mike's Covid Year
Lorcan asks Michael about how his year of Covid has been as a front-line worker. Next week we'll be back to the normal BOWOB with 'Mad Cows'

BOWOB - 03x02 - Holiday on the Buses (1973)
It's the final chapter of the On the Buses BOWOB trilogy, as your regular hosts discuss the inevitable TV-to-movie plot of our characters going on holiday. Due to unfortunate lockdown recording requirements, the original version is forever lost, but we've stitched together a quick summary of the lost first third, and from then on it's high quality laughs with slightly lower quality audio. https://facebook.com/bowobpod https://twitter.com/bowobpod firstname.lastname@example.org

BOWOB - 03x01.5 - Recommendations of 2020 and Lorcan's Best Films of 2010s
Lorcan is here to once again give you an update on how series three is going to differ in a number of ways to the previous two. We'll actually be providing you with more content, but it's going to be a bit more varied, spread out, and, in this episode's instance, a bit more stream-of-consciousnesses. It's fair to say, and unoriginal too, that this has been a year to forget, but Lorcan, Michael, and Thom will take a brief moment (in Mike's case slightly brief, in Thom's VERY!) to offer you some recommendations of films, TV, or online entertainment that have kept them going for the past year. Lorcan then spends the second half running down his top 100 films of the 2010s a full year later than it would have been useful, and offering quick thoughts as he goes along to the films tha the feels like discussing further. https://facebook.com/bowobpod https://twitter.com/bowobpod email@example.com

BOWOB - 03x01 - Love Actually (2003)
In the spirit of Christmas, your BOWOB boys have watched a frequent fixture on the telly during the holiday season. Lorcan, Thom, and Michael are here to chart the many romantic flavours on display in Richard Curtis's divisive directorial debut Love Actually. Will they fall swooning for it like a woman in a lower-status job? Or blubbing with the rage of a thousand scorned Emma Thompsons?

BOWOB - 03s01 - Interview with Nat Luurtsema (BAFTA-nominated writer-director)
Before another series of BOWOB starts next week, we're taking a little detour with the first of what we hope will be a series of special episodes where we chat with someone who has actually done something within the UK film industry! For this episode, Lorcan has had a conversation with BAFTA-nominated writer, actor, comedian, and director Nat Luurtsema to discuss her experiences in producing short films and the hoops she has had to jump to finally reach a point where a number of her feature projects are entering production. facebook.com/bowobpod twitter.com/bowobpod firstname.lastname@example.org

BOWOB - 02x13 - Season Finale
It's the end of another series or season of films for the BOWOB lads to cover, and they have reconvened one last time to put the final kick into those movies that were particularly harrowing to each of them, before setting on a final anti-recommendation list to save everyone else the perils that these three have put themselves in. We'll be back later in the year with a Bond mini-series, followed by a new dozen shortly thereafter, so keep tabs on us to find out when we'll be back! https://twitter.com/bowobpod https://facebook.com/bowobpod email@example.com

BOWOB - 02x11.2 - Ranking the Pop Groups (Bonus Audio)
Still haven't had chance for al the BOWOB boys to reunite and record the final couple of episodes for the season, so here's a little bonus "deleted scene" audio. You can now finally understand the thinking behind the definitivev list of late 80s-to-early 90s pop groups as decided by a group of white men either about to hit their 30s or well deep into it. Therefore, the most knowledgeable and best qualified demographic to make such a list! facebook.com/bowobpod twitter.com/bowobpod email@example.com

BOWOB - 02x11.1 - Announcement
A temporary suspension of services...

BOWOB - 02x11 - Final Score (2018)
It's the sweariest episode of BOWOB to date, but that's a natural consequence of watching a film set in an English football ground. Especially if that ground happens to be that of West Ham United. It's a Die Hard knock-off from start-to-finish as Dave Bautista (the wrestler) finds himself tackling Russian terrorists whilst the Hammers' players try to tackle that European great Dynamo FC. They're only running on 66% capacity, but the lads will continue to provide 110% effort until the final whistle. facebook.com/bowobpod twitter.com/bowobpod firstname.lastname@example.org

BOWOB - 02x10 - Peter Rabbit (2018)
It's time for something for the kiddie-winkles! Unfortunately, that involves human walking winkle James Corden trampling over a beloved childhood literary figure. But could some actually well-written jokes be enough to make this among the more tolerable films for the BOWOB boys? Listen to find out! twitter.com/bowobpod facebook.com/bowobpod email@example.com

BOWOB - 02x09 - Fat Slags (2004)
It's Fat Slags. There's nothing much else to say. But if you want us to chat about the Sky One football soap opera Dream Team... facebook.com/bowobpod twitter.com/bowobpod firstname.lastname@example.org

BOWOB - 02x08 - Dragon Kingdom (2018)
It's sequel time yet again, as the BOWOB team return to the land of Nazroth and the twelve kingdoms to see what the makers of Knights of the Damned did after their lunch break. It turns out they made a whole extra film - with two titles for the price of one! Along the way they encounter blue demons, passage monsters, voodoo zombies, and beligerent TK Maxx staff. One of those they might have made up themselves. You have to do something to keep yourself entertained during these things, you know!... @bowobpod facebook.com/bowobpod email@example.com

BOWOB - 02x07 - Seeing Double (2003)
In perhaps the most contentious episode so far in BOWOB, the hosts round off their popstar trilogy with the cinematic debut of S Club (not 7) in a sci-fi clone comedy where once again the disposability of a band is presented to themselves by the people that are in charge of their careers! Satire, cynicsm, or somewhere in between? Let's find out together! @bowobdpod facebook.com/bowobpod firstname.lastname@example.org bowb
