‘Tim Vine Live: Tim Timinee Tim Timinee Tim Tim To You’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to stand-up comedy I tend to like the comedians that tell a story and build up to a joke. There are some though that prefer the quick-fire one-liners style like Tim Vine… What I find with Tim Vine though is that he has a style that is inoffensive and easy to handle. […]

by Paul Metcalf

There are many comedians that spring to mind when you try to decide who are the funniest, but one of the most constant names to turn up on lists has to be Billy Connolly. We don’t tend to see much of his stand-up routines anymore, so when Billy Connolly: High Horse Tour Live was announced […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×07′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a Buffy fan you’ll remember the episode Normal Again. This episode featured Buffy drifting from two realities, one where she is in a mental asylum, the other the usual Buffy world we expect. This episode was haunting and left us wondering what the character’s reality truly was. Now Ash vs Evil Dead […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×06′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

It would take a lot to beat the second episode of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2, featuring one of the best slapstick scenes of the series. We now have that episode, featuring a family reunion of sorts. This reunion is not only in story terms but also a returning actor from the very first […]

‘The Code: Series 2′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Oh, the evil Internet, full of evil hackers looking at the best way to steal your money or sell you to the highest bidder. It seems to be the popular tool for modern television series to create something that stands out. Does The Code: Series 2 stand out as something special though, or just another […]

‘The Fall: Series 3′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

In some ways, it is surprising that the third series of The Fall was made, especially with Jamie Dornan filming the 50 Shades of Grey movies. The second series ended in such a way that it could have been a good way to end, but that would have missed out on a much darker way to […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×05′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

‘The Night Of’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

In a perfect world, we would like the judicial system to work with the aim of protecting the innocent, but in this cynical age we know that this doesn’t always happen. The Night Of takes us through a trip through this system, showing just how dark and heartless it can be. When Nasir (Riz Ahmed) […]

‘Luke Cage: Complete First Season’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Based in Harlem, Luke Cage, Netflix’s latest Marvel show, has a different feel to Daredevil and Jessica Jones but lives in the same universe as the two. Does he have enough strength to not only save Harlem though but to stand out in his own show? After the events of Jessica Jones, we find Cage […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×04′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Dealing with the fallout from last week’s Ash vs Evil Dead, episode four leaps straight into the action. What it also does though is fall into the trap of being an episode about progression. A stop-gap between a major plot point, and hopefully one to come in the next episode. With the Delta still possessed and […]

‘Luke Cage 1×03: Who’s Gonna Take the Weight?’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Bring da motherfuckin’ ruckus.” This show has a fucking soundtrack. Sixteen Marvel movies hit theaters every year and I’d be shocked if you could find someone on the street who remembered a single bar of original music used in any of them. Three episodes into Luke Cage and not only have we heard Charles Bradley, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Nirvana, Isaac […]

‘Westworld 1×01: The Original’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

O, reason not the need: our basest beggars Are in the poorest thing superfluous: Allow not nature more than nature needs, Man’s life’s as cheap as beast’s: thou art a lady; If only to go warm were gorgeous, Why, nature needs not what thou gorgeous wear’st, Which scarcely keeps thee warm. But, for true need, […]
