Uncoupled

Comedic-but-tackling-the-real-life-issues series with protagonist Neil Patrick Harris being left by his long-term boyfriend unexpectedly, and the completely relatable stories that unfold for someone who’s a high-end property agent, existing in the New York gay...

Young Rock – Season 2 0

Young Rock – Season 2

The quasi-biopic of Presedential Candidate Dwayne Johnson continues – bringing in a little adversity and a few lessons but maintaining the ludicrous tone and cartoonish charm. What a way to mythologise a backstory! I...

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...

Upload – Season 2

Season 1 of this really, really grabbed me – so it’s a bit of a shame that this followup instalment seemed to wander a bit. I don’t know if there was an element of...

Rick and Morty – Season 5

Dammit, this show just keeps getting better & better – and Season 5 genuinely gave the idea that Roiland & Harmon genuinely don’t care, and are putting in EXACTLY what they want to.  More...

The White Lotus

High-production-value piece about a few groups of protagonists who go to an island resort for their own various reasons, and the subsequent interplay and revelations they have whilst there. It’s got a bit of...

On Becoming a God in Central Florida

This caught me TOTALLY off-guard. I was quite excited to see the series kick off with Alexander Skarsgard playing “Florida Man” in an Amway-but-OBVIOUSLY-IT’S-NOT-AMWAY cult/multilevel marketing cult… and then, well, let’s say Episode 1...
