TV Review: Game of Thrones S8E6 – ‘The Iron Throne’

‘Do not be sad that it is over. Be happy that it happened.’ I can’t help but apply this term to the end of Game of Thrones: one of the most popular, influential and ground-breaking television shows of all time. Yes, I know, we’re all sad and angry (some more than others considering the petition […]Read More

TV Review: Game of Thrones S8E2 – ‘A Knight of

The second episode of Game of Thrones’ final season was titled ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,’ or – more aptly – The One Where Jaime Lannister Gave Fleabag’s Hot Priest A Run For His Money in the Contest For the Sexiest Delivery Of The Word “Kneel.” Booze, sex, tears and tenderness – surprisingly, we […]Read More

TV Review: Girls Incarcerated

New to Netflix, Girls Incarcerated takes viewers inside Indiana’s Madison Correctional Facility, e.g. a jail for girls under the age of 18. Throughout the 8 episodes, you see the inmates, or ‘students’ as the staff refer to them, work to get their lives back on track. An insightful and interesting look into the US Justice […]Read More

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

Review: The Grand Tour

Tall, rotund, mousy haired, ape-like, inept, racist, ridiculous, and on the ragged edge of being acceptable. These are but a few descriptions that have befallen the figure of Jeremy Clarkson –  the famed 56-year-old broadcaster, originally from Doncaster, who is now a popular household name – whether spoken with humorous smiles, or with hateful exasperation. […]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

Mr Robot is written and directed by Sam Esmail, and stars Emmy award winning Rami Malekas the lead character, and actor who previously starred in Night of the museum.

TV Review: Atlanta

When Donald Glover dropped Because the Internet in 2013, its’ perverseness and brutal description of consumption and how the internet transformed the dynamics of modern society (for better and for worst.) It also featured a screenplay and a short film further exploring the aforementioned which showcased his prowess in acting and screenwriting. Shortly after the […]Read More

TV Review: Bojack Horseman Season 3

Bojack Horseman isn’t the easiest show to recommend to people. After all, we’re talking about an animated dramedy that follows a talking horse (Will Arnett in the performance of his career) who used to be on a Full House-esque sitcom and is now struggling to move past his former glory and find happiness. You could […]Read More

TV Review: Game of Thrones Season 6

Battles have been staged, storylines have become intertwined and *R+L=J HAS BEEN CONFIRMED*; in short, the sixth season of Game of Thrones could easily be its best to date. Between the devastating reason why ‘Hodor’ says ‘Hodor’, immense spectacle in episodes nine and ten, and Daenerys finally setting sail to Westeros… there is much to […]Read More

TV Review: Game of Thrones // Battle of the Bastards

There are no words to describe my feelings after watching this week’s highly anticipated Battle of the Bastards. I was genuinely left awe-struck by this week’s episode. It was a total masterpiece. Granted, we only saw the story-lines in Mereen and at Winterfell, but I swear by the Old Gods and the New that it has […]Read More

TV Review: The Flash Season 2

Given how incredible the first season of CW’s The Flash was, and the CW’s writing seemed to be going downhill with Arrow Season 4 and Legends of Tomorrow, I won’t lie; I didn’t think that Season 2 was going to live up to the very high bar that had been set by its predecessor. Now […]Read More

TV Review: The Hollow Crown – Wars of the Roses

It is often bemoaned that the first time people experience most Shakespeare plays, they’re reading straight out of a bound copy and not watching the action take place on stage. Admittedly, a television adaptation doesn’t give quite the same sense of immediacy as a live drama production does, but it is generally the next best […]Read More
