‘The Simpsons’: A Case for Cancellation

The Simpsons is one of the most beloved comedies of all time. Recipient of over 34 Emmys, it has run for over thirty years, and frequently makes the ‘Best TV Ever’ lists. However most of these lists come with a clause: ‘The Simpsons, Seasons 1-12’. Indeed, many would like to see it cancelled, due to […]Read More

TV Review: ‘Search Party’ Season 4 – The Moment of

Following a group of narcissistic Brooklyn hipsters who seem all too familiar to any liberal arts college grad, Search Party follows a similar sequence of events every season: someone goes missing and our four protagonists deal with it, either by searching for the missing person or covering up a disappearance they caused.

TV Review: ‘Ghosts’ Series 2 Is A Delightful Tonic

BBC’s Ghosts first premiered in spring 2019, receiving rave reviews, and the second series has been no different.

Comedy Review: These Folk // The Yes Queens

The modern setting of the newly built Boulevard Theatre in Soho is host to this rather wonderful, folk-inspired, improvised musical by The Yes Queens.

Theatre Review: Pater Noster // Francesca Caruso

Pater Noster (which translates to the Lord’s Prayer) asks for strength during the coming day, and for forgiveness of sin and temptation. This is a sentiment seemingly absent from Francesca Caruso’s production of the absurdist, yet touchingly reflective, play Pater Noster.
