- Show notes:
- Music for this episode is The Heavy’s “How You Like Me Now?”, from the film’s soundtrack.
- With apologies to Tom Hooper, David Seidler, Colin Firth, and Geoffrey Rush, stick around at the end for a blooper!
- As penance for our shameful blooper, check out the next episode, in which we review Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech.
