The Orville – Season 1 0

The Orville – Season 1

Intriguing, this one – I had a look at the first one of these ages ago because of the concept (space/scifi comedy, helmed by Seth McFarlane), and found the whole thing a bit desperate....

Rick and Morty – Season 5 0

Rick and Morty – Season 5

Dammit, this show just keeps getting better & better – and Season 5 genuinely gave the idea that Roiland & Harmon genuinely don’t care, and are putting in EXACTLY what they want to.  More...

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

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”,...

Humans – Season 3 0

Humans – Season 3

Tricky bridging season with a bunch of half-sucked plotlines, which I’m relieved they managed to resolve all of.  At least it was a relief to see a story concluded before turning into more post-Sopranos...

The Mandalorian – Season 2 0

The Mandalorian – Season 2

It’s weird, isn’t it? As a kid you see a character in a film and think “I’d like to know more about them”. Then – years later – someone puts together a series that...

Humans – Season 1 & 2 0

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...

Rick and Morty 0

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...
