The original blurb for this blast from the past!
"In this one the guys look at prog 9 then get up to date with the big jump on issue 1650 and also 1651 and 1652. Listen in to find out why Will Ferrell isn’t funny and why flip-flops don’t cut it if you are trying to look sexy. As ever expect spoilers and language not suitable for the kiddies."
