There’s also talk of awkward movie screenings, and the boys find out which Knights of the Roundtable they’d be.

Andrew is tired of crying when the good guy dies in a film. If people are going to perish on screen, he wants to be spared the devastation. This week Dylan and Simon have the particularly tough job of finding a film where death is integral to the plot, but it doesn’t spoil the movie… or your day. There’s talk of whoopee cushions, school plays, Scooby-Doo and Power Rangers – but is any of it enough to sway Andrew?

Dylan and Simon both love musicals, but Andrew has his limits, and only wants to watch a film with restricted spontaneous singing. Can Andrew choose between two comedy giants like Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig, can Dylan win a round by roasting the crowd, and can Simon pull off a lounge cover of his favourite Shania Twain song? Find out all this and more in this week’s episode.

We’re back, and this season Andrew is being a bit more specific with the films he wants to watch. First up, he wants the spectacle and thrill of a natural disaster movie. Can Simon win him over to his corner with tales of beaches and bidets, or will Dylan be able to persuade him that he needs more Bill Paxton in his life? Or was it Bill Pullman?
