The Hopscotch Friday Podcast

Hopscotch Friday is an informed and impassioned pop culture binge. What does that mean? Well, it means we’ll review stuff and give you a good idea of what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s probably worth a cheeky watch anyway. Importantly, we also give you the *why*. Online we mostly focus on movies and DVDs. But we also like music, games, telly, comics…you name it. If you like what you hear, give us a shout at hopfriday@gmail(.com). Join Stevie and Emmet O'Cuana each week for a bit of pop culture pillow talk.

*SPOILERS FOR DEADPOOL 2*

Firstly - Stevie is back! And then we open our review episode of Deadpool 2 by discussing Ireland's Repeal the 8th Amendment referendum. Other points raised include

  • Marvel UK's Knights of Pendragon and Schitt's Creek
  • Deadpool 2
  • Was Shatterstar ever cool?
  • Deadpool as a blend of badass and camp.
  • Did the screenwriters employ the hoary comic book trope of 'fridging?'
  • 'Would that this hoodie were a time hoodie'.
  • Black Tom Cassidy!

Deadpool and friends

Neevon is back - and he comes with reviews of Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty and the Martin Freeman zombie flick Cargo

This episode we:

  • Talk about Avengers Infinity War quickly, without any spoilers
  • What comics you should read to catch up on the events of that film, including Jim Starlin's Warlock
  • I Feel Pretty's theme of body confidence
  • Emmet's simmering resentment that Cargo didn't win Tropfest
  • The use of Indigenous peoples as fantasy figures in genre stories
  • The potential advantage of Cargo landing on streaming for horror in Australian cinema

Till next time, cheers folks.
