House of the Dragon – Season 1

OK, so I was ALWAYS gonna be watching this, and will watch it to completion unless it gets really dire.  The world’s too rich not to. However, it’s worth registering at this point: they’re pretty...

The Boys – Season 3 0

The Boys – Season 3

This show.  My god, this show.  I found myself describing in breathlessly to a workmate and realised that I absolutely love it.  Flawed characters… flawed SUPERHEROES… and the set pieces – even after 2...

Diriliş: Ertuğrul – Season 2 (completion)

We started this season in around Feb/March last year. They’re just so damn epic in scale! Season 2 was quite the journey, with LOTS of key character deaths and huge changes in the political...

Reacher

I’m not one of the legion of fans who devoured the Lee Childs books – my only exposure to Reacher really has been the Tom Cruise film.  Seasoned by the mouth-agape review of my...

Homeland – Season 8

The final chapter in Carrie Matheson’s Crazy Adventures, in which Claire Danes has buried the image of the impish smile from Romeo+Juliet & replaced it with a kind of gorilla-like gurning… but then, I...

Diriliş: Ertuğrul – Season 1

So… TECHNICALLY I shouldn’t put this in a roundup, because we haven’t finished watching it.  However it really rates a mention, owing to the fact that in its original broadcast form I believe each...

The Mandalorian – Season 2

It’s weird, isn’t it? As a kid you see a character in a film and think “I’d like to know more about them”. Then – years later – someone puts together a series that...

The Boys – Season 2 0

The Boys – Season 2

The high-octane dark underbelly of the Superhero business continues in this gripping second season, and while the plot seemed to split out into many threads to follow, it remained unmissable due to the sheer...
