We Need to Talk About Cosby

Leaving aside the fact this could’ve been edited down a lot tighter (4 hours? Really?) – Yet Another chilling story of abuse of power to facilitate serial sexual assault by a male entertainer in the 60s-90s+. Sickening number of parallels

Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story

I think I got a bit confused here, as there’s been loads of media rhetoric about the Steve Coogan-led dramatisation of the Savile story: and that’s what I was interested in.  It’s probably no coincidence therefore that Netflix have been

The Beatles: Get Back

This documentary-of-the-decade was far too good to bother with my usual collection of sentences here.  So I wrote a whole post, instead. 👍👍👍

Pretend It’s a City

I suspect I wildly missed the point of this. Lauded as “must see” by some ppl in my circles, I gave this a good solid attempt at watching (3 episodes), but ultimately found it impossible to give much of a
