Lovecraft Country – ‘Sundown’ Review

Based on the 2016 novel by Matt Ruff, Lovecraft Country is the new show from HBO, with some very talented people behind the scenes. And they have spared no expense. Coming at possibly the best time for a story like this, Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman as he travels across Jim Crow-era America to locate his father, who has mysteriously disappeared. Anyone familiar with the book will know that this is only the beginning, and things get very strange, very quickly.

Marvel Frontier Comics – Marvel’s Forgotten Foray into Mature Comics

In the latter half of the 1980’s, it became clear that comics weren’t just for kids. Thanks in huge part to the extraordinary mainstream success of Alan Moore’s Watchmen, publishers were more aware than ever of the vast potential of comics for older readers. The big two both had their own homes for these more mature comics, Epic at Marvel and DC’s Vertigo.

The Leftovers – Series Review

Pretty much no one watched The Leftovers when it first aired, despite it’s critical acclaim. It has since gone on to be considered one of the (if not the) greatest TV show of all time, with most critics citing it as their number one. Learning from his mistakes from the tail-end of Lost, showrunner Damon Lindelof dives once more into the mystery here. But more so than the mistakes and unanswered questions, Lindelof builds on the things that made that previous show so great; the big questions, theological debates, the wackiness, the thrilling science-fiction madness of it all. With an outstanding all-star cast, A+ production values, and more depth than any other show I’ve seen, The Leftovers just might be the best TV show of all time.

Westworld Season 3 Review

Westworld is back! And it’s bringing with it a slightly reduced run of episodes, but a more streamlined story. There are still mysteries – this is Westworld after all – but not as many.

This season has split opinion in the fanbase, more so than even the divisive second season. But despite a change of location and some swanky cyberpunk visuals, this is the same show we fell in love with way back in 2016.
