Krypton – Season 1 Overall Review

krypton season 1

When Krypton was announced I thought to myself “sounds boring, but I’ll probably give it a watch at some point”, and it seems I was right in that I’d eventually give it a go, but turns out it wasn’t that boring! … Eventually. Sort of. Don’t get me wrong, the series has some serious flaws, but it’s not without charm, and has some good moments towards the end. Let’s take a closer look, anyway!

UFO – Episodes 1 – 8 Review

ufo p1

It’s been a while since I’ve put up some classic Sci-Fi TV reviews up, but there has been a lot of new TV in recent months to get on with… That being said, let’s start a run through of UFO, the first live action Gerry Anderson TV show. I’ve been wanting to watch it (and its spiritual successor Space:1999) for a while now, the Blu-rays of all three series just waiting for me on my shelf, but I didn’t want to rush it (or watch four episodes in August and then another four in December, which would have made this review rather tricky.) I’ve enjoyed it so far, though the series isn’t without faults, both due to age and otherwise. Let’s have a look!

Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episodes 1 – 8 Review

LoT S4 P1

Legends of Tomorrow was, in my opinion, the best of the four Arrowverse seasons from last year, being as funny as it was entertaining and occasionally dramatic, and while they definitely leaned in too hard on the humour so far, Season 4 still offers up a fun mix of time travel antics and fun character interactions. Let’s have a closer look!

My Top 10 TV Series/Seasons of 2018

Top 10 TV 2018

2018 was another year where the majority of TV I watched were second or third series / seasons of something I was already watching (with a couple of exceptions), but that being said a lot of series were of a very high quality indeed, with a couple of good seasons actually having to be cut, which makes a change compared to the Games list… Or the movies list, which was so small it isn’t going to be appearing for the second year in a row… Anyway, let’s look at my Top 10 TV Series / Seasons of 2018!

Elseworlds Review

Elseworlds

The 2018 Arrowverse crossover was a different kind of beast than the previous two, being less focused on all-out action between teams of people, and more interested in doing three things: explore the psyche of Barry and Oliver, create a backdoor pilot for a Batwoman series, and set things up for 2019’s big crossover. It does all these things well, but it also makes for a less interesting crossover, especially as I’ve had my fill of “evil” versions of the established cast…Let’s take a look, anyway!

Arrow – Season 7 Episodes 1 – 8 Review

Arrow S7 P1

Arrow’s seventh season starts off in familiar fashion to previous Arrowverse storylines, though unlike when Flash put their lead behind bars at the start of the year, this time it actually felt like it matters (and it was for more than two episodes…) It created a more unique atmosphere, when combined with an interesting flashforward rather than the usual flashback, it makes this season at least get off to a more interesting start than a lot of previous efforts…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episodes 1 – 8 Review

Supergirl S4 P1

Supergirl Season 4 kicks off with a rather on-the-nose look at racism and nationalism in our current society by transplanting aliens as the new foreign menace that are stealing people’s jobs and can’t be trusted etc. It’s all rather dull, and in my case (and hopefully yours too!), it’s preaching to the choir and taking a lot of the reality-escaping fun away from the show… So, yeah. Let’s take a closer look!

The Flash – Season 5 Episodes 1 – 8 Review

Flash S5 P1

It must be getting close to Christmas, as it’s time to start looking at the first third of the new Arrowverse seasons! First up, oddly as it’s the last to air, is The Flash Season 5, which has so far been good. Nothing ground breaking just yet, the idea of Barry and Iris’ daughter from the future arriving is at least a new one, and the current lead villain is a bit different, if not on the extremely cheesy side… Let’s take a look!

The Walking Dead Season 9 – Part 1 Review

The Walking Dead S9 P1

Now I normally split Walking Dead seasons into pre-Christmas and post-Christmas, but given the well-publicised (and therefore fair game to talk about in the pre-spoiler section) exit of Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes in Episode 5, and how much of a shift will come from it from Episode 6 onwards, I thought it would make far more sense to split the series here. So with that being said, how was the exit of the series’ main character? Well…

DW: The Tsuranga Conundrum Review

DW The Tsuranga Conundrum

The Tsuranga Conundrum was a step up after last week’s effort, not that it was particularly hard to do that, but it does seem to highlight a quirk of the Thirteenth Doctor’s run so far: a focus on the companions and their relationships at the expense of the villain of the story. Let’s take a look at this most recent example and see how that affected the story this time round…
