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!Continue reading
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…Continue reading
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!Continue reading
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?Continue reading
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!Continue reading
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!Continue reading
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?Continue reading
I really enjoyed the first season of Umbrella Academy, but after a disappointing second season for Altered Carbon I was worried about this follow up. Turns out I didn’t need to be because Umbrella Academy Season 2 was great, a perfect follow up that develops its core cast, gives them a new setting and still manages to keep the sense of fun alongside the drama. Let’s take a closer look!
Despite what I said in my review of Witcher’s first season being the last old review catch up, here is a late review of the first season of The Boys, though in this case it’s not an old review I’ve been sitting on, instead it’s a show I only just got round to watching. I just didn’t feel like it right away, and the worst thing to do with a series is watch it when you’re not in the mood. It’s a good thing too, as this series was a really fun watch, with some top-class dark humour and great characters. Let’s have a closer look!
In what is the last of the “catch up reviews from the past six-to-nine months”, the first season of The Witcher was hyped up a lot before and after its release, but I initially held back due to often finding Henry Cavill quite dull in his prior roles, and a general lack of knowledge of the source material (novels and, much to my shame, the games, though if I ever get a spare few months I’d like to tackle Wild Hunt…) But I gave it a go after work colleagues were raving about it and I did enjoy it… a lot, actually! So let’s take a look at Witcher Season 1, and finally stop posting reviews comprised using notes I wrote down half a year ago…
