In this month's episode, Charlie and George are joined by fellow Sean Connery enthusiast (and returning guest), Andy Hughes to discuss fantasy cult classic, Highlander!

As per usual, they delve into the production history including the film's controversial casting of the world's most famous Scotsman as err, an Egyptian, and an aspiring French/Swiss actor as.... a Scotsman. There's also talk of the iconic Queen score, music video visuals, and dubious stunt doubles.

Also present are regular features like alternative casting in Coulda Woulda Shoulda, Suspicious spin-offs (of which there are many), and Listeners Comments.
