Squid Game – Season 1 Review

Is this bandwagon jumping? Well, no, if that were the case I would’ve marathoned the series and got a review up much quicker, but I will say the show wouldn’t have been on my radar at all had its popularity not exploded. In fact I love the fact that a Korean live action drama series has become so popular worldwide given a lot of people often stick their noses up at subtitles or live action dubs. With that all being said, what did I think of the show? Funny you should ask, though the answer probably won’t surprise you…

The Walking Dead – Season 11 Part 1 Review

It’s time for the final Part 1 review of a season of The Walking Dead, well that’s currently airing anyway (I will go back to do the older seasons on this blog at some point…) Much to my surprise these eight episodes have had a really high hit rate, with some standout episodes reaching a real pre-Rick’s-death high. Sadly the parts of these episodes I didn’t like are the parts that are setting up the next and final story arc, so that doesn’t bode well for the other two thirds, but hey-ho… Let’s look at Part 1, shall we?

What If…? – Season 1 Review

What If…? was always a great concept for a comic series and unsurprisingly it makes for a great TV series too, especially given so many Hollywood stars actually returned to voice their MCU roles. Obviously with any anthology series some were better than others but in general I had a fun time watching every week. Let’s take a closer look…

Red Dwarf – Series II Review

Back with more Red Dwarf and the second series already starts to move into more sci-fi territories, introducing small craft, moon surfaces and an android (or “mechanoid”) though only for a single episode (for now!) At the end of the day though the series is still focused on Lister and Rimmer as they try and meek out some sort of existence on the massive but empty Red Dwarf…

Red Dwarf – Series I Review

I went back and forth on whether I could review Red Dwarf for the site. On the one hand I’m doing a first ever watch through from Series I to the Dave revival series so it was the optimal time but on the other hand it’s a comedy series and therefore it’s very subjective. Sure the sci-fi setting makes it fit more naturally on this blog than a sitcom in a flat or something, but it’s going to be something new to me and especially with the first six series it will be hard to separate nostalgia and look at them objectively. Oh well! Let’s give it a go, shall we?

The Walking Dead – Season 10 Part 3 Review

My reviews of the first two parts of the Season can be found HERE and HERE.

As the final season of The Walking Dead kicks off I suddenly remembered that I never got round to watching the six “bonus” episodes of the previous season, mostly due to cancelling my regular TV subscription before they aired but thanks to Disney + having the entire Walking Dead uploaded I was able to catch up! … Man, with the exception of one, these were not worth it. Oh well, let’s take a look anyway!

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 1 Review

The Bad Batch came out of nowhere when it was announced last year, taking the team of enhanced clones introduced in the final Clone Wars season and giving them the spotlight. That being said the true highlight of the series to me at least is the setting: immediately after Episode III so we see just how quick and frankly short-sighted the formation of the Empire was in the wake of Order 66. Throw in some classic Dave Filoni call-backs and great character moments and you have a hit! Let’s take a look…

Loki – Season 1 Review

A little later than usual for the big MCU series (for let’s just say the most valid of reasons…) it’s time to take a look at Loki’s first season, a six episode run through multiple timelines that really came into its own as it progressed and ends on a really great episode despite it containing mostly one man giving exposition. Want to know more? Read on!

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Review

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is a new four-part CG series set in the video game canon, much like the three CG movies released over the last decade and a bit. In fact given the four episodes run about an hour and a half total and were all released at the same time means this is in reality just a fourth CG movie… Is it good though? Well, within the confines of being a Resident Evil property? Let’s find out!
