The Walking Dead – Season 9 Part 2 Review

TWD S9 P2

How does The Walking Dead function without Rick Grimes? Well, not too badly, as it turns out. While the series certainly feels like its missing a central character to focus on, there are enough interesting characters and plot left that when combined with an interesting new enemy to face, it’s led to a good few episodes of TV. Not perfect by any means, but good. Let’s take a closer look.

The Umbrella Academy – Season 1 Overall Review

Umbrella Academy S1

Another day, another Netflix show that I didn’t immediately jump on but ended up enjoying immensely. Umbrella Academy is at its heart a superhero show about a dysfunctional group of heroes getting together to stop a threat, but it doesn’t take itself seriously, its cast is a mishmash of troubled souls quite unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and it’s just generally bonkers. At only 10 episodes it doesn’t overstay its welcome either! Let’s take deeper look, anyway…

The Expanse – Season 3 Overall Review

Expanse S3

As Amazon Prime gets ready to bring us Season 4, we here in the UK have only just got access to The Expanse’s Third Season, and boy… it was worth the wait! Once again the first few episodes end the adaptation of a book that started in the previous season, but this time the third novel is adapted fully by the end of the series, and it makes for a crazy ride! Let’s take a closer look…

UFO – Episodes 9 -18 Review

UFO P2

It’s been a little while, but let’s get back to UFO for the second third of the series. Once again its a mix of really good episodes, including more Straker family drama, and episodes that are just flat-out boring. Thankfully there are far more of the former than the latter, and some episodes were really ahead of their time. Let’s take a deeper look.

Titans – Season 1 Overall Review

Titans S1

Titans, shown over here in the UK on Netflix, reminded me a lot of Krypton, not by tone of story or focusing on any kind of specific origin, but in that after the first two or three episodes I was considering turning it off, but now I’m happy enough that I stuck with it. It’s not an amazing show, but the last two-thirds of the season was a fun watch nonetheless. Let’s take a closer look…

The Punisher – Season 2 Overall Review

punisher s2

The Punisher’s second season was less focused than the first, and told a less compelling story, but it has to be said that it was still fun to watch. Ben Barnes’ Billy Russo was believably crazy and The Punisher is still an interestingly broken character himself. Let’s take a closer look at the series overall, then…

The Punisher – Season 2 Episodes 5 – 9 Review

punisher s2 p2

The Punisher’s second season continues onward with two plotlines starting to merge together.  It’s got some brutal action and some uncomfortably great acting from our lead duo of Frank Castle and Billy Russo. While it’s not quite up to the first season, which had a more interesting plot by now, but still good TV. Let’s take a closer look…

The Punisher – Season 2 Episodes 1 – 4 Review

punisher s2 p1

The Punisher’s first season took me by surprise, as I was expecting the usual over-the-top action and violence that you get with the character, but I also got a reserved, broken version of Frank Castle and a really interesting and well-written look as PTSD. Season 2 so far has started to fall back into line with what I originally expected from the show, but the MCU version of Jigsaw is looking to be very interesting indeed…

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!
