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 Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power 0

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

Such a rich setting. And ambitious in scale.  Incredible detail.  Really struggles in the way that prequels with known source material do though in that we know this is a story that needs to...

The Sandman 0

The Sandman

Having never read the GRAPHIC NOVELS but heard loads about them over the years I was very keen to watch this, and mostly enjoyed the British emo/stoner vibing lead character. Took me a minute...

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...

Obi-Wan Kenobi

I really think Ewan McGregor was giving this all he had, but it’s not possible to overcome the laziness of the Star Wars franchise and its 21st Century architects.  A patronising parade of fan-appeasing...

Diriliş: Ertuğrul – Season 2

We didn’t make it all the way through season 2 – merely 66 episodes through the 103 that make it up – but it’s such a big part of my TV enjoying experience that...

The Handmaid’s Tale – Season 4 0

The Handmaid’s Tale – Season 4

Torture Porn epic The Handmaid’s Tale continues – with this season feeling a bit more focused and balancing more towards storyline rather than seeming like a university psychology experiment. There were still plenty of...

The Nevers 0

The Nevers

In summary, “WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!”. Seemingly a Victorian Superhero piece, transforming into unintelligible scifi bollards at the last minute. A review I read prior to getting started described it as “a mess”,...
