‘The Walking Dead 8×07: Time for After’ Review

In the last season of The Walking Dead, Eugene (Josh McDermitt) became one of the Saviours, to pretty much protect himself and to stay alive. There was that hope though that he would still have some connection to his friends. This week, The Walking Dead looks at Eugene now, and just what he is willing […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×11: Great Again’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

So, the final episode of American Horror Story: Cult has arrived, and it feels like it has been quite a journey. Will it end in the way we expect, or will there be some random twist that makes everything make sense? When Kai’s (Evan Peters) world comes crashing down around him, Ally (Sarah Paulson) becomes […]

‘The Walking Dead 8×04: Some Guy’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While there has been so much happening in The Walking Dead at the start of season 8, one thing that has been glaringly obvious to horror fans, the King was heading towards a downfall. Last week we saw the start of that, but that wasn’t the end of the cost of Ezekiel’s (Khary Payton) over […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×10: Charles (Manson) in Charge’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Charles Manson is a cult leader that is arguably the most entrenched in pop culture than the others. This is why American Horror Story: Cult probably saved him as the most influential on Kai (Evan Peters). The problem with this of course is that when Manson’s crimes are so well-known, American Horror Story struggles to […]

‘The Gifted 1×06: Got Your siX’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

The Gifted is a show that maybe about mutants and their powers, but it is more than just another X-Men themed show. It is about family, and this week we see how the Strucker parents have to adapt to the fact their children are different. For those looking for more mutant action, we also see […]

‘Channel Zero – Season One: Candle Cove’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of scary stories you’ll already be aware of Creepypastas on the Internet, even if you didn’t know that was what you are reading. Channel Zero is a show that is born out of these made up but disturbing stories, with the first season based on Candle Cove… When child psychologist […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×08: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

In the first episode of Star Trek: Discovery, one thing that the Klingons made clear is the fact the Federation may say they come in peace, but many times they don’t. This week that peacefulness is put to the test on a new planet. When U.S.S. Discovery takes a high priority mission to a planet […]

‘The Gifted 1×05: boXed In’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Since The Gifted began we’ve learnt little bits about Jace Turner (Cody Bell) but his actions have overshadowed his own personal story. This week though not only do we get to see what caused his vendetta against the mutants, but also see the impossible happen. He may actually be turning into a character we actually […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×09: Drink the Kool-Aid’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Last week American Horror Story: Cult managed to become a parody of itself, and became more the American Comedy Story. This week something needed to change, to get it back on track. Thankfully, with the season heading towards the end game, things began moving in the right direction…sort of. In an act of faith Kai […]

‘The Walking Dead 8×02: The Damned’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When The Walking Dead focuses on action, it can feel strange. We’re somewhat used to an episode full of talking, then some action at the end. In The Damned though we are shown the repercussions of going to war with a view of taking no prisoners. With the plans of the Alexandrians, Kingdommers, and Hilltoppers […]

‘The Gifted 1×04: eXit Strategy’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of The Gifted, then you’ll probably feel the same way as me when I think it is time Stephen Moyer’s character was out of jail. Thankfully it appears the mutants have an eXit Strategy to get not only Reed (Moyer’s character) but Polaris (Emma Dumont) too. Plans are put into […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×08: Winter of Our Discontent’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Watching American Horror Story: Cult it has been obvious that the show is, already, running out of steam. With a good set-up, the season had potential, and probably still has. If Winter of Our Discontent shows anything though, it is that it is starting to become a parody of its own self. If anything, this […]

Just what is it that makes us human? That is the question that is asked in this episode of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. With Bryan Cranston starring in this episode, a lot of expectation had built up around it. Does it live up to the hype that the Breaking Bad actor brings? When Silas Herrick […]
