Merry New Year podcast listeners.

Isn’t it incredible to think that this beautiful planet of ours is a whopping 2014 years old this year?

To celebrate this amazing scientifically-accurate occasion, the team make no changes at all and do what they’ve been doing every other week – review the latest Irish cinema releases.

This week, resident office fancy dan Adrian Collins, Sue ‘Baby Hands’ Murphy and token Northern lackey Eoghan Doherty discuss the following releases:

Steve McQueen’s (not that one) incredible new film 12 Years A Slave; Robert Redford’s All Is Lost AKA Life Of Pi For Real Men; Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom starring Idris ‘face it, I’m much cooler than you’ll ever be’ Elba; and the hot mess that is American Hustle… if you’re in to that kind of hot messy thing.

There’s also a look back at the unashamed binging that took place over the festive period – binging of the delicious viewing kind that is, not the delicious eating kind – as the team discuss the TV shows that seasonally satisfied them the most including the brilliant triple-whammy of Parks And Rec, House Of Cards and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Oh, and Netflix may be mentioned. A lot.

But wait! There’s more! For additional awesome suggestions of other excellent, binge-worthy television shows to check out, just click here for JOE’s ‘Bingewatch’ article, featuring a lovely picture of the Hoff.
