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

The Night Agent

Cute 10-part spy-thriller pushed at me by the Netflix algorithm. It was an engaging enough story, provided you were happy to ignore the UTTERLY RIDICULOUS central plot element once it moved into view. Fun and well-put together, provided you’re not

The Flight Attendant – Season 2

No less absurd than the first season, but whatever you think of this show you CERTAINLY couldn’t say it was formulaic or clicheed.  Multi-faceted espionage caper constantly upended by the completely underequipped Cassie Bowden, with a concluding sequence that was

The White Lotus – Season 2

Basically, if you go on holiday and Jennifer Coolidge turns up in your hotel – GO HOME NOW. I’m really impressed at how this show manages to take an almost entirely new cast, and a new location, and weave a

Mare of Easttown

So many column inches of reviews on this already.  GREAT story, and so compellingly put together. Not only a torturous journey through the mundane, but it’s foolish not to note that it was Kate Winslet utterly refusing the glamour bit. 

The Flight Attendant

I kinda went into this one without much idea what I was signing up for – but it turned into quite an engaging murder-mystery following an alcoholic flight attendant as she tried to get to the bottom of the murder
