Smersh Side Special: Highlander with Greg Jenner

HIGHLANDER! Ahh-ah! He’ll save every one of us!” Sorry, wrong theme tune. It’s the film about the immortal Scottish swordsman battling the last of his immortal opponents, with help from Sean Connery as the chief metallurgist to King Charles V of Spain (or is it Egypt?) It’s a grand epic so rich in pseudo-historical nonsense that only an ACTUAL HISTORIAN could do it justice. So joining John to cut off your head is Greg Jenner, who can be found on Twitter as @greg_jenner.

Smersh Side Special: Sextette with Julia Raeside

John is joined by Guardian TV writer Julia Raeside to watch Timothy “Bond James Bond” Dalton gamely feign desire for 1,000,000 year old Mae West in the “saucy” “musical” “comedy” Sextette. “Why don’t you come up and see it some time?” Why? Because it’s batshit insane.

23. Skyfall with Robin Ince

This time it’s personal, again, as Daniel Craig’s grumpy spy takes on the bloke from No Country For Old Men, using only an Aston Martin he absolutely definitely shouldn’t own and an old DVD of Home Alone (for survival tips). John Rain is joined by Robin Ince (The Infinite Monkey Cage) – who can be found on Twitter as @robinince – to discuss the 23rd Bond, and possibly duet on Adele’s biggest hit about apple crumble.

Smersh Side Special: Taffin with Adam Buxton

“Then maybe you shouldn’t be living heeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrre!” John Rain tackles the 1988 film starring Bronhom – the man who would be Bond (and then was Bond, so don’t cry) – with the man who gave Taffin a second chance at life. It’s Dr Buckles himself, the Emperor of Podland Adam Buxton, who can be found on Twitter as @AdamBuxton.
