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”, and that’s certainly how it ended – though there was enough in it to keep us …

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 a long way, before tipping right over into it at the end.  Useful that in the …

Humans – Season 1 & 2

Intriguing drama about a present-day world where synthetic humans are engaged as domestic/industrial servants, until some of them develop consciousness. The characters have depth and dimension, and the synth acting is eerily good.  And it explains why Richard Herring’s been banging on about sex robots that look like Gemma Chan …

Rick and Morty

Originally I had the feeling that Rick & Morty was something that had passed me by, and then I watched an episode or 2 and thought nothing of it – so it was only being brought to it through the laughter-teared eyes of my mate Adrian on a holiday that …

The Boys – Season 2

The high-octane dark underbelly of the Superhero business continues in this gripping second season, and while the plot seemed to split out into many threads to follow, it remained unmissable due to the sheer fucking ludicrous awesomeness of spectacle and content – involving many a Facebook post from people saying …

The Mandalorian

The Star Wars story that had everyone talking.  I thought it was fine.  I don’t know why I have such a high expectation of the Star Wars universe for good storytelling, particularly in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary…  but this simultaneously gave screentime to a mysterious figure …

Russian Doll

Quirky as fuck Groundhog Day, led my Natasha Lyonne as a game developer who keeps dying and then respawning back at her own birthday party, leaving her to try to solve what’s going on and unlock the mystery.  Exquisitely shot & quite compelling, yet still leaves simpletons like me wondering …
