The Running Man is up in the dock this week. A sprint finish or should it jog on?

Gav manages to discuss the great action and prescient sci-fi themes in the film as well as his enduring love and respect for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Dave argues that Arnie spoils the story, taking away some of the threat in the plot by being too strong and not having the acting chops this story needs.

All this with an impression of the big man himself and a quiz all about game shows in films.
