New Episode Among Other Things

We don't tend to update the newsfeed for new episodes. We give you one every Monday without fail. You all know that. That's not news. It's "olds", if anything.

But this week is different because this week, the new episode, is part of our ongoing James Bond retrospective. We know a lot of our listeners are big Bond fans, so this is a big episode. More than that, however, this may just be the best episode of the show to date.

This week's episode is "You Only Live Twice" and it starts out with all the usual film discussion, but we got quite manic towards the end - something that often comes with a late-night record. Not to mention that this week's selection of sequel pitches are particularly good.

So please do go ahead and listen! And tell your friends! And subscribe! And rate and review us on iTunes!

Oh, and if you're here for the listener vote discussed in the episode, then head here to get involved. At the time of writing, Big Momma's House has inexplicably overtaken The Matrix, so anything could happen!


Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator and The Lion King 2 Soundtrack Comparison

We at Diminishing Returns hope to bring you a selection of video pieces moving forward, now that we have this fancy new website where we can show them all off.

The first is a nice, clean listening post, comparing the soundtracks of the films Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Gladiator and The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride. This audio was heard (and discussed) in our latest episode "Review of the Year: Part 1", but now you can listen to it without us talking over the top of it and decide for yourself!

Really? A Diminishing Returns website?

Yes! Fuck you. We deserve a website as much as the next guy.

It's here! It's one-third queer! Get used to it.

From now on, this shall be the central hub for all of your Diminishing Returns needs, with a comprehensive database of each episode, complete with bonus bits like photos, media clips and our tie-in reviews.

In addition to that, Allen now has a proper place to stick his blog posts and long-form reviews and, who knows, Sol and Calvin might join in if it's not just going to be lost in the ether of Facebook any more.

As always: enjoy!
