For the first show of 2012 Conor claimed the lateness of the date in January was to avoid wishing anyone a Happy New Year. He and Luke went on a rambling journey from Mildred Pierce to Skyfall to Netflix to some concerns about a Steve McQueen impostor and finally to another Movie Express Hypothetical Movie Pitch. (For those curious, it involves The Hellfire Club and has an extremely catchy title but we really can’t say more here. Listen to find out more)

Stoke that fire, curl up with a beverage and enjoy your yuletide ride on the Movie Express.  Season’s best to all our listeners! Be safe and look after one another.
