As I wrote last week, the COVID restrictions placed on TV and film production have had a noticeable affect on certain productions. From storyline changes in TV shows to films having release dates pushed back multiple times, the industry has almost universally suffered. The Walking Dead on the other hand, has found the positive in the situation more than most.Read More The Walking Dead – ‘Find Me’ Review
The reaction to the recent adaptation of The Stand has been mixed. On one hand, I understand the critics who said they found the show uneven, in terms of both tone and performances. But on the other, as a huge fan of the show, I’m left to wonder; what did anyone expect?
The show is bizarre and awkward at times, but so was the book. As an adaptation of one of the weirdest books of all time, The Stand does a damn good job capturing that “Stephen King feeling” that so many other adaptations fail at.Read More The Stand (2020) Review
The Walking Dead is back! And in a strange turn of events, this isn’t the beginning of a new season – or the return after a mid-season break. No, this is the return of TWD for a bonus set of episodes, added on to the 16 episode run season 10 had, despite the fact that the season 10 ‘finale’ aired months ago. This unprecedented course of action is due to the unprecedented times we live in and the show runners do a great job of bringing us the zombie stories we love in the time of a pandemic. These episodes hopefully won’t feel tacked on; if this first episode is anything to go by then they certainly won’t.Read More The Walking Dead – ‘Home Sweet Home’ Review
Series 3 of Doctor Who had a tough act to follow. Series 2 was on another level in terms of what we’d seen on television at the time, and this series had to step up its game. With a new companion in the fantastic Freema Agyeman, and plenty of new places to explore, the series definitely succeeds.Read More Doctor Who – Series 3 Rewatch and Review
This series marks the first proper appearance of David Tennant’s incarnation of The Doctor.
For fans of a certain age, Tennant will always be the best and most recognisable actor in the role. Eccleston perhaps didn’t stick around long enough, and for many, Matt Smith just wasn’t the same. David Tennant is The Doctor. And after watching this, his first series, you can see why he became the fan favourite.Read More Doctor Who – Series 2 Rewatch and Review
With the recent airing of Revolution of the Daleks, I found myself genuinely excited, in a way that I haven’t for a long time in regards to Doctor Who. Even though the episode had its faults, it did hark back to a simpler era of the show.
Maybe it was the return of John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, but I had an urge to go back and experience it all again.Read More Doctor Who – Series 1 Rewatch and Review
“Everyone is a monster to someone. Since you are so convinced that I am yours. I will be it.” When Black Sails first aired back in 2014, comparisons were immediately made to Game of Thrones. And on the face of it, that comparison is fair – especially in the fact that both shows are overflowing with sex, violence, […]Read More Black Sails – Season 1 and 2 Review

The real-life 1921 massacre in Tulsa took centre stage in this week’s episode.

The Walking Dead is back! Finally! Unfortunately, once this episode ends it’s taken away from us for another long stretch. This episode isn’t the start of a new season as one might expect at this time of year, instead it’s the long delayed season 10 finale – 6 months later than planned.Read More The Walking Dead – ‘A Certain Doom’ Review
