Twin Peaks: Is The Return Ushering In A New Age

In the very first episode of Twin Peaks: The Return, there comes a single moment that effectively outlines the intentions of the revival while simultaneously functioning as a wake-up call to misty-eyed fans hoping to find some form of answers to the numerous questions that the original show posed. It comes as we witness a […]Read More

Film Review: War Machine

Having watched the trailer for this new Netflix original some time ago, I was incredibly excited to watch the entire thing, going on the initial clips I had seen, but it turns out it wasn’t at all what I was expecting, due entirely to the misleading promise of the trailer that looked to be both […]Read More

TV Review // Marvel’s Luke Cage

With Marvel Studios currently decimating the Superhero movie scene at the moment, after the huge success of Captain America: Civil War, and the critical failure of DC’s Extended Universe, with Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad taking a beating from critics and fans (for which I hold Zack Snyder personally responsible), it’s easy to forget that Marvel Studios are doing some […]Read More

‘Stranger Things’ – How Winona Got Her Groove Back

  ‘Winona Forever’ goes the slogan. Immortalised by a generation raised on the Gothic glamour of Beetlejuice, it was also the phrase that was, ironically, temporarily etched onto the arm of eccentric movie alternahunk Johnny Depp. Even more ironically, such a statement – delivered in honour of Winona Ryder – hasn’t exactly rang true, for […]Read More

10 Reasons To Be Excited About The ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival

You could […]Read More

Louis Theroux: Britain’s Newest National Treasure?

After gracing our screens for over 17 years with fantastical broadcasting magic, covering a wide range of topics from the world of porn, to investigating those facing impending death, it is fair to say we can now crown Louis Theroux as the king of documentaries (if such title were to exist, of course). With three […]Read More

Netflix and Marvel are set to continue their unrivalled conquest of superhero television after announcing a full season of Marvel’s The Punisher.

TV: Master of None and Hollywood’s Race Issues

The first season of Aziz Ansari’s new show, Master of None premiered earlier this month on Netflix to universal acclaim. The show is simultaneously smart, funny, thought-provoking, and covers a wide range of topics beautifully in only ten episodes. Once I started watching it, I absolutely could not stop watching it and found myself ready […]Read More

TV: How Netflix Gave Us The X-Files and Twin Peaks

I got the best birthday gift I could have possibly asked for this year (and even a day early), when on March 24th, 2015 FOX confirmed rumors that The X-Files will be returning as a six episode miniseries in early 2016. I really can’t explain how excited this news made me (I have a copy […]Read More

Netflix’s latest phenomenon that is set to sweep the world by storm, Sense8 has become the necessary viewing to engage in conversations in both the real world, as well as our online social spheres.
