,GET THE LATEST EPISODE AND A FULL ARCHIVE AT SHOWS.PAULANDSPIKE.COM-------
A familiar third voice creeps back into the show thanks to the third most unpleasant waste product to come out of Iceland, after Bjork and "Lazytown".
0:00:00 - Do we hate Iceland? Sure, its volcanic output may have paralysed airspace over most of northern Europe leaving people stranded and unable to get home... but it did give Spike's dad Old Spike an extra eight days vacation and one more appearance on the show.
0:06:07 - Former militant political animal Old Spike wonders if he's missing coverage of the UK general election and that election day buzz, or if "old age, inertia and meh-ness" has made it less interesting.
0:16:35 - Pickin' and Gri... wait, what?
0:17:01 - This Week In Stuff. Paul has been enjoying a mini Dennis Potter film festival, including the darkly odd "Blue Remembered Hills" and the first episode of Old Spike's favourite, "The Singing Detective". Sighs from the peanut gallery as Paul crosses another movie off the infamous Ebert list; "Last Year At Marienbad" and then some fluff, courtesy of "Planet 51".
0:31:05 - Thanks to the presence of Spike's kids, Old Spike has lost a hundred and three minutes of his life to Ponyo. Another few chapters of the terrifying "American Theocracy" which leads to a discussion about the presence of religion in American politics, and the lack of it in British politics.
0:44:05 - Spike's fragmented week includes "lots of bits of stuff" thanks to his signing up to Netflix and has been streaming Dr Who through the website... but does that make him a pirate?
0:59:15 - This week's question: let's say you had a loan of the Tardis for a couple of hours. What point in history would you visit? And why?
