Hosted exclusively by Hey U Guys, every episode of NO SERIOUSLY ITS AWESOME invites a guest to pick a film that they love that either a) everyone else hates, or b) no one else has even heard of, and then discuss the potential merits of said film. It’s about celebrating the unloved children of pop culture, the weird bastard offspring that clutter late night TV schedules and the £3 bins in HMV.
The sixth episode sees Wil Jones speak to Georgie Hobbs, Film PR extraordinaire, occasional journalist and Wil’s direct line manager at work.
Georgie film of choice is Young Sherlock Holmes – a film that lives on a pub trivia question for being the first narrative feature to ever feature CGI effects. Despite coming from the minds of Steven Spielberg, Chris Columbus and Barry Levison, it bombed on its initial release, and it now mostly just filler on the Film4 Saturday afternoon schedule. But the film had a deep influence on Georgie, affecting her early love life and early life choices. Listen in sense shattering mono as we discuss her bizarre predilection for pubescent boy detectives (including the VHS insanity of Just Ask For Diamond), the more demented Sherlock Holmes adaptations and talking cakes.
