Gen V

Superhero High – a predictable trope. But, from the makers & universe of The Boys? Strap in. More of the unexpectedly creative violence amid a bleak, exploitative storyline and chemical hijinks from Voight Corporation. Great spinoff; makes me even more

Jack Ryan – Season 4

Shortened but engaging finale season for this show – thankfully the streamer allowed the conclusion in a short 6-episode season rather than the 3-season cancellation that’s become so commonplace in the content wars. Season 4 introduces Tom Clancy’s equivalent of

Jack Ryan – Season 3

This one was a do-over – we started it back when The Child was born but after about 4 episodes realised that neither of us had the brain power to follow wtf was happening or who all those people were.

The Mandalorian – Season 3

More Star Wars universe IP-mining. I don’t see why everyone’s so into this. I mean, he looks cool – but probably the most interesting thing about the show is the amount of analysis and speculation it’s generated about whether Mandalorians

Star Wars: Andor

Holy crap. THIS is good Star Wars Universe content. As my colleague put it, “It doesn’t have space wizards” – what it DOES have is intrigue, politics, characters you give a shit about, and storyline that it’s foregone conclusion EVEN

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 eye-popping seasons, they can *still* pull

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 setup in 13th Century Turkey.  It’s


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 mate Rodney, who just couldn’t get

The Book of Boba Fett

Thanks again, Disney, for force-feeding me more bullshit.  Take one of the best, most ruthless, understated characters from the Star Wars universe, build the fanbase’s expectation & excitement, and then reveal that the bloke underneath is a smug boomer who’s
