Grimey and the gang put us through the wringer for this tense and dramatic start to the new season.
Homeland without Brody is a strange, new place. One that could develop into something quite suspenseful and intriguing.
The first season of a new show based on a film could go one of two ways… obviously. In that it could sink like a soggy souffle or it could surprise and delight both fans of the original film – directed by the Coen brothers – and bring in new fans alike. Largely this show… Continue reading Fargo: first season review
And so the three-eyed crow said unto Brandon of House Stark, ‘Let there be spoilers in this review’, and behold there were. Having almost revealed something about the penultimate episode of the recent season to my housemate I thought I’d begin with a warning. If you’ve not watched this season yet – or indeed read… Continue reading Games of Thrones: Season 4 review
Modern TV shows, they have to begin with a bang these days. Well, to be fair, old ones did too, yet new ones tend to come with an A-list cast of actors, as well as an acclaimed director and screenwriter. Penny Dreadful is no exception.

So… it seems The Following is back. A bit of a surprise hit when it aired last year so no big shock that it’s got another season. If you missed it first time round, the show largely focuses on two characters: wounded (physically and emotionally), brooding former FBI guy Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and the… Continue reading The Following season two: Bacon and Purefoy back with a slice and a stab
Like all good seductions, the buildup is slow. Starting a new TV show in this day and age is hard – partly because the bar has been raised so high. We’re living in a golden age of TV and, as viewers, our demands are great. And so, what new show Masters of Sex has done… Continue reading Masters of Sex: season one review
I’m slowly but surely losing interest in Misfits. There I’ve said it. It’s just not the same without Robert Sheehan. I mean, Jo Gilgun does his best, but I’m not sure it’s enough. And as for the rest of them? Well Karla Crome is lovely to look at, but the others may as well not… Continue reading Misfits series 5: the power of love
