The superhero movies just keep on coming, but this one’s pretty special.
For the record, Miles Morales first appeared in comics in 2011 – not 2003 as I mistakenly estimated – so he’s an even newer character than I was thinking.

Sometimes we talk about TV instead of movies. Well, this is the first time we’ve done that, actually.
Broadchurch is a British crime drama series set in a small town in England. After a local boy is killed, a murder investigation tears apart the titular hamlet of Broadchurch.
We cover Series 1 of 3 on this episode of the podcast. The first half of the episode gives our glowing general impressions while the second half descends into spoiler territory. It’s a really, really strong series and it’s well worth watching so we highly recommend not listening to the second half of the podcast if you haven’t watched the entirety of Series 1.
We’ve seen Incredibles 2 and that should be our next episode.
