Mugatu! DEFCON 2! Psychic Afro Squid!

It's the end of the road for the Watchmen, and we've got the crescendo to beat them all. We've got reviews from the lovers and the haters, we've got a supervillain to rival Zoolander's Mugatu, and we've got some swearing that's really quite restrained in the circumstances. Also featuring Matt's worryingly total recall of late-90's pop smash hits. Dave's loving it; Matt's loved it but wants to go back to the Beano. How about you?

We're spending a bit more time with Lori and Dreiberg in our third instalment of our Watchmen walkthrough. It's time to watch a 40 year old nice guy with a spandex fetish and an uncomfortable way around women trying to put some moves on his sexy young friend. Just like a night out in Barnsley. Also this week - why Lori just can't stop hitting the flamethrower button, killer one liners for scary prison situations and Dr Manhattan's world famous glass-blowing class. Fire up the screechers! It's time for another Shark Liver Oil!

It's time for Shark Liver Oil to delve deeper into the distressing, disturbing and dystopian world that has the Watchmen for its guardians as we recap chapters 4 to 6. 

The purple-suit-and-custom-made-cufflink-wearing Smartest Man in the World gets into a scrap, the hipster's hero of choice gets arrested and it's time to find out just where Mr Big Blue Swingin' Dick himself came from. Quiet at the back there: no sniggering.

It's Watchmen like you've never experienced it before - any questions, comments, points or criticisms for the book or the cast, send 'em in to sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com, or @sharkliveroil on Twitter.

We're back, and it's time for a BEHEMOTH. We're discussing philosophy, kick-ass gadgets, and the parallels between Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' modern classic and the Beano. Which apparently exist.

From big, deep characters to a joke about baked beans that's in the worst possible taste, we don't shrink from talking about the important stuff, and neither should you - get in touch if this is a favourite of yours, or if you don't understand the hype, or if you're amazed it was a comicbook at all (secret tip: if you thought it was only a movie, boy are you in for a treat). We're on Twitter @sharkliveroil, or you can email sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com.
