COBRA: Rebellion (season 3 of COBRA)

I only finished watching this out of wanting closure – agonising as it was to sit through the performances and scriptwriting of the last half of this. Hard to know whether this became so risible because of the wooden/mechanical scripts,

I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson

Honestly, I don’t remember how I came by this. Or, much of what happened in it. But I *do* remember staring at it open-mouthed trying to work out what I’d just seen an earnestly and urgently messaging half my comedy

Doctor Who – The Five Doctors

This was one of those things we had on VHS which as an adolescent I must’ve seen a good 100 times, and therefore wasn’t very surprised to see how much of it I could quote along with, despite not having

Billions (Season 7)

The last ride of the gang from Billions. Was this credible? Not really. The motivations of the characters seemed to have come so far from where they started, but the unity against the new common enemy figure of Mike Prince

Jack Ryan – Season 4

Shortened but engaging finale season for this show – thankfully the streamer allowed the conclusion in a short 6-episode season rather than the 3-season cancellation that’s become so commonplace in the content wars. Season 4 introduces Tom Clancy’s equivalent of

The Good Wife – all seasons

This one was a big undertaking: but a 7-season journey allowed for some sweeping plot arcs as well as some good episodic TV. Fabulous cast inhabiting some really strong characters in this: I’d actually watched a lot of the spinoff

Avenue 5 (both seasons)

I was drawn to this by Armando Ianucci’s involvement, and intrigued by Hugh Laurie’s presence (plus supporting case – Zach Woods, Rebecca Front, and Josh Gad as a low-rent Jack Black). While the first couple of episodes struggled to figure

Succession (Season 4)

God, they’re all awful, aren’t they? We weren’t doing the weekly-watch and so missed out on the week-by-week popular intrigue (remember back in the past when we used to work in offices and this sort of thing was called “watercooler
