S5E06: The TNT Punch!!! (DYNAMITE!!)

Welcome back, Cromrades! You're just in time to join us on a voyage to South Africa, to witness a story of kindness and conniving. Steve Costigan is a stand up guy, we reckon, and he'd do whatever he could for a friend, and even a countryman who isn't his friend. But there are those who'd take advantage of that kindness. Not to mention the fact that old Steve is a sucker for a pretty face. This here story is a prime example of those qualities of our boy Steve Costigan... it's The TNT Punch!

  1. Take the piss out of cockneys all you want - they're an embarrassment to the rest of the UK, lol

  2. I still maintain you guys should read "how to be a kick ass boxer" by champ thomas. You're getting the hang of how to read these fight scenes and picking up bits of the beautiful art of punching your fellow man in the face but i think you'd all really enjoy the book. Champ has that same braggadoscious attitude that sailor steve seems to have

  3. Should consider posting to YouTube.

  4. I think you discussed this on a Bran Mak Morn episode in response to an S. T. Joshi article that essentially states that the artistic merit of the Howard story in question was worthless due to some anachronisms. You made a good argument for the story just being a great story regardless of its historical accuracy (or lack of) and - in Howard's own words - was one of the author's most proudest literary achievements.
