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.

Extraction (2020) Review

Netflix has a chequered past when it comes to their ‘original’ programming. For every standout like ‘Okja’, ‘Dolemite is my Name’, or ‘The Irishman’, there’s a bucket load of terrible films like ‘The Ridiculous 6’ or ‘The Outsider’ or ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’.

‘Extraction’ falls somewhere in the middle in terms of quality – but in terms of enjoyment it’s one of the best film’s Netflix currently has.

The Expanse – Season 1 Review

Going into The Expanse, I knew very little about it. I knew it was based on the book series by James S. A. Corey (the pen name of co-authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) and I knew it was very well received by critics and fans alike.

The thing that grabbed me most about it, however, was the love people seemed to have for the show, even bringing it back from the brink of cancellation when SYFY decided to prematurely end the show’s run. Having now binged the first season in a couple of days I can safely say I am all in on The Expanse too.
