The Black Dog Podcast 230 – Tea?

Welcome to this weeks episode of the Black Dog podcast.
In this weeks episode we discuss roast dinners, total eclipses, Chappie and how shit Die Antwood are at acting and everyone tries to work out what exactly Lee is working on. We also have an update about how much we earned for charity with our Electric Boogaloo non swear-a-thon and the results of Lee’s donut comedown…

Then after a Gnarly Sh*tty superhero and a weather loving profanasaurus from Jim we move on to this weeks movie, the colossal misfire that is Ralph Fiennes, Uma Thurman and Sean Connery 1998 film The Avengers

Welcome to this special episode of the Black Dog Podcast for Comic Relief

Listen to this special unedited commentary of Breakdance 2: Electric Boogaloo quite possibly one of the worst films in existence!

The Black Dog Podcast 229 – Space Cheese

Welcome to this weeks episode of The Black Dog Podcast simply titled Space Cheese!

This week we are joined by Peter and Anne Marie Organ of the lovely bOrg Cast to discuss Star Trek 6 The Undiscovered Country. But not before hearing Lee’s descent in to sugar rush hell requiring Darren taking control of the helm, hearing Jim’s punishing podcast schedule, Peter taking his life in his hands by sawing up trees before attending the cast, Anne-Marie’s love of beer and bemusement at Romulan ale goblets and Eltons utter bemusement at all things Star Trek.

And don’t forget that we will be recording a special Comic Relief podcast on March 13th as we try not to swear over Breakin2: Electric Boogaloo and if you want to donate to that go to but do not send in feedback for this!

Next week we move away from outer space completely to review possibly one of the worst films of all time but one only Lee and Darren have apparently seen… Uma Thurman, Ralph Finnes and Sean Connery all pick up the conservatory catalogue to star in The Avengers (no not the one with the bloke with the hammer)


The Black Dog Podcast 228 – Anaconda Little Richard

Welcome back to this weeks episode of The Black Dog Podcast.
This week the guys catch up with the previous missing weeks worth of chat, including discussions about cursed sex film It Follows, drinking Absinthe out of a watering can, Eltons new obsession for standing on roofs and littlest hobo impression, Lee’s career advice for taxi drivers and Darren gets a big FU from the film Project Almanac.

Then after a carrot loving sh*tty superhero and a tangent to Bucky O’Hare and a gripping Profanasaurus from Jim we move our Jive Turkey asses over to this weeks film Black Dynamite. Will it be cool brother? Or will it interrupt our Kung Fu?

Next week we return to the final frontier for the final mission of the original USS Enterprise in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

The Black Dog Podcast 227 – Lunar Pop Tarts

Welcome to this weeks episode of The Black Dog Podcast.

This week we catch up with the guys as they discuss sitting around in their joggers watching Jeremy Kyle, wallpapering, how Jupiter Ascending is all mouth no trousers, wangling free holidays, Shaun The Sheep and then a quick mini review of Kingsmen, while Elton (the only host not to see it goes silent).

There’s an update on the Just Giving page for the Black Dog comic relief challenge and the YouTube channel is launched!

Then after a CrossPlay sh*tty superhero and another entry from the profanasaurus by Jim we move off world for the last of our “Fly slowly through space season” reviewing Duncan Jones’ debut Moon

Next week we record on Wednesday 27th Feb and we come very much down to Earth with a bump as we review the parody film Black Dynamite

The Black Dog Podcast – Non Swear A Thon

In a desperate bid to save our eternal souls, myself along with Darren, Jim and Elton will be watching the *ahem* dance classic Break Dance 2: Electric Boogaloo….

We will be recording the whole thing (and maybe more) on Friday 13th March and attempting to not swear throughout the entire film and post film review.

The cast will be released unedited straight after we finish.

Any swearing will result in the offending host putting money in a swear jar that will also be added to the money that we hope you will donate on our JustGiving Page (linked below).

Can we do it? Will you get involved? If so click the link….
And may god have mercy on our souls….

Then after defiantly giving the news section the finger for all time. We move on to a sh*tty superhero that makes Darren genuinely angry and Jim gives us a subtle potted review of this weeks film in his Profanasaurus.

Then its on to the film in question, Danny Boyles space thriller… Sunshine.

Next week sees the final movie in the Sci Fi season aka the Spaceships fly slowly season with Duncan Jones’ Moon.

The Black Dog Shindig 2015 – 12/9/15






After last years excellent turn out at Black Dog Shindig 5 we’re doing it again.

Black Dog Shindig 2015 will take place on 12th September 2015 upstairs at the Retro Bar in Charing Cross in London.
For those of you who have no idea what a Shindig is, basically its a pretty easy going pub meet, where we can all meet up, have a laugh and a chat with fellow “Black Doggers” and the hosts.

The event will officially start at 7pm but usually we meet up at The Imperial beforehand for people who have come from a long way away and are killing time before the event.

As we get nearer the event more details will become available.

In the meantime the event is set up on Facebook so if you’re interested head over there and let us know if you’re coming


The Black Dog Podcast 225 – BABY

Welcome to this weeks episode of The Black Dog Podcast.
This week we are again joined by the inimitable Mr Andy Poulastides as we discuss such weighty topics as X Factor washouts, the importance of choosing fonts wisely, best practices for resigning, new Ghostbusters, Chris Pratt in a fedora and the utterly uninspiring nature of the Fantastic Four trailer.

We also have the usual sh*tty superheroes and profanasaurus from Jim

As well as answering the more weighter topic of “How does Dave Bowman get out of paying for a bill?” and “What constitutes a ‘failed star'” as we review this weeks Hard(ish) SF movie 2010

All of this and an obscure running gag about Soundwave the Transformer

Next week we head in the opposite direction to Jupiter as we head sunward with Danny Boyles movie Sunshine
