The Garbage Podcast – Series IV Commentaries: Meltdown


In this last edition of our celebration of Series IV’s 25th anniversary, we talk about Meltdown for our latest commentary. It’s an episode that for a long time was considered one of the weakest, but is this due a reassessment? It’s certainly one that has some classic moments, but has a slightly broader tone that perhaps separates it from the rest of the series.

Is this an episode that feels more like Series X than IV? Would it have worked as a season opener as originally intended? And what are the ethics of burning candles in a wax based theme park?

All these waxy fascist based questions and more will be examined as Alex, James and Andrew examine this episode while trying to avoid crossing the boundaries of good taste. First for everything..
