24: Day 2 – 11:00pm to 8:00am Review

(My review of the first half of Day 2 can be found by clicking HERE)

How do you follow up a nuclear bomb exploding in the outskirts of LA? Well you don’t try and top it, instead you go to the other side of the thriller spectrum: espionage and suspense. While Day 2’s second half (well not quite half, but you know what I mean) has a lot of the same faults it does at least bring the season to a satisfying conclusion… only to leave a cliffhanger that ends up getting resolved in a subpar PS2 game. Yay! Let’s take a look…

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Review

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier feels like a new Captain America film but stretched out to six hours. In a lot of ways this is good, the two titular characters have more development here than they ever had in their film appearances, but sometimes it was a little bit too slow for its own good. What ratio from good and slow is it? Let’s find out!

24: Day 1 – 1:00pm to 12:00am Review

(My review of the first half of Day One can be found by clicking HERE)

After a stressful twelve hours it’s safe to say Jack Bauer and his family retire to their home, have a nice cuppa and go to sleep peacefully… What’s that? The show’s called “24”? Oh, in that case, they’re in for second course of twelve hours full of terrorist plots and kidnappings! Let’s take a look at how Day One ends, shall we?

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…
