Inside Man 0

Inside Man

David Tennant’s vicar and Stanley Tucci’s death-row-not-at-all-like-Hannibal-Lecter psychologist are the tentpoles for this 4-part crime drama where the mild-mannered vicar just keeps on making the wrong decision, culminating in a VERY bizarre final episode....

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...

Borgen – Power & Glory

Holy crap, having been massive fans of Borgen since day 1 and finding Birgitte Nyborg’s floundering around in latter seasons a bit less satisfying, we were delighted that this instalment was a blistering return...

Pieces of Her

So, I find it *really* hard watching things with Toni Collette in (and this is TOTALLY my issue) because I keep getting distracted about whether it was her that I really disliked in that...

Billions – Season 6

The fortunes of this show were always going to be interesting following the plot developments closing out the 5th season, however the show weathered that change quite well – and in fact strongly.  Props...
