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 0

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...

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”,...

Brave New World 0

Brave New World

This forces me to confess I haven’t read the Aldous Huxley book… but SURELY it doesn’t have all that fucking in it. Does it? Hmm. ANYWAY – it sorta teeters on the bullshittish for...

Rick and Morty (last few episodes of S4) 0

Rick and Morty (last few episodes of S4)

This is more a placeholder to mark the date than an insightful comment. However I just can’t believe how it’s taken me so long to fall under the inane spell of Rick & Morty....
