WandaVision Review

The much anticipated MCU show focusing on the bizarre sitcom antics of Wanda and Vision finally aired over the last two months, and it didn’t disappoint. While slow to start the mystery of just what the hell was going on built up perfectly, whipping myself and many others into a frenzy of online discussion and theories in the days after each episode aired. Did the series stick the landing? Let’s find out!

24: Day 1 – 12:00am to 1:00pm Review

I’ve been wanting to finally re-watch 24 for many years now but when I put my old DVDs in a few years ago the picture, particularly around the trademark digital clock, was terrible and so I decided to wait for the “inevitable Blu-Ray release”… that never came. Then when I finally gave in it vanished off UK streaming sites altogether! Thankfully it’s now available in its up-rez, recreated clock graphics glory on Disney +’s new STAR category here in the UK, so I thought I’d finally have a good watch through from the beginning. Handily each Season is normally split in two halves with a greater threat looming over both, so it made decision on how to cover the series easier too. So, without any further ado, let’s take a look at the first chunk of episodes, shall we?

Agents of SHIELD – Season 7 Overall Review

Although Season 5 still feels like the actual final season, Season 7 of Agents of SHIELD is at least a marked improvement over 6 and does a good job of basically taking a bunch of characters that have been developed to their natural end and just having a bit of a laugh with them. That’s not to say the series didn’t have its moments of more seriousness, but this did feel like the writers, cast and crew were all just having fun because they found themselves with a seventh season they weren’t really expecting… With that all said, let’s take a look!

Transformers: War for Cybertron – Earthrise Review

I really enjoyed War for Cybertron – Siege last year and so, to my surprise, I was looking forward to this next six episode series, and it not only kept the momentum going but it actually surpassed it with an even more darker tone, layered characters and, most importantly in my eyes, lots of Transformers: The (animated 80s) Movie references! Let’s take a look…

My Top 10 TV Series/Seasons of 2020

Another year, another set of three Top 10s! This year saw a lot of films and a few TV series get delayed due to a certain global pandemic, but thankfully (for this list, it matters little compared to the death of over a million people, for the record…) there was enough that I can create another Top 10! Much like every year I’d like to point out that this is the Top 10 of the series I’ve watched, I don’t claim to have watched everything, or even a lot really… Still, fun to do, so let’s get on it!

The Mandalorian – Season 2 Review

The Mandalorian’s second season had a LOT to live up to, thanks to its top class first season, and somehow it managed to meet it. The stakes were raised, characters from all over Star Wars appeared and most of all our lead duo both got some character development, never getting lost in the flood of new content. So let’s spend several paragraphs gushing over it, shall we?

The Boys – Season 2 Review

Although it’s only been a couple of months since I reviewed the first season, here we are with Season 2! The Boys are … no, I’m not going to say “back in town”, far too obvious… Erm, let’s just stick with “are back”. Once again underneath the dark humour, the at-times-unrelenting gore and the explicit sex scenes is a series that was genuinely entertaining and well written. Let’s take a look!

Transformers: War for Cybertron – Siege Review

What is it with Netflix and forcing me to watch CG shows? Admittedly using the Transformers franchise at least makes sense as it, currently, lacks any human characters, and seeing giant robots in CG is a lot easier to take, but still! If I’m honest I had no intention of watching a new Transformers cartoon, but then I heard more about it, that it uses designs closer to the classic 80s cartoon I loved growing up and has references to, and features, death and “killing”, making it closer in tone to the Transformers animated movie than the squeaky clean TV show, I was interested, and it was only six 20-ish minute episodes, so… Why not? Was I disappointed or did it live up to these expectations? Let’s find out!

The Walking Dead – Season 10 Part 2 Review

Well, after a long wait the season finale of Season 10 aired… except now it isn’t the Season 10 finale, instead there will be a third batch of Season 10 episodes before what has been revealed as the final season… so I guess I’ll call that “Season 10 Part 3” whenever they end up airing… Anyway! Let’s review what was, at the time at least, planned to be the second and final half of the 10th season, shall we?
