‘WWE: Macho Man – The Randy Savage Story’ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

When I first began watching professional wrestling, some 22 years ago in 1992, the one wrestler who made me sit up and take notice was “Macho Man” Randy Savage. My first wrestling event I ever saw features Savage and Ric Flair wrestling for the WWF Championship in Indiana at WrestleMania 8. Randy Savage has been […]

In the final season of The Killing, everything comes full circle and the past comes back to haunt Linden (Mireille Enos) who seemed to have finally escaped from the life of the homicide detective. Dragged back to the case that started her obsession, this is the one to make Linden question if her instincts were […]

‘Gomorrah: The Complete Season One’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When you look at the fictional world of the crime families, especially those of the Mafia it’s about tradition and respect.  Gomorrah is a drama that looks at what happens when respect is not given and tradition is attacked. The falling of a family empire is rarely a peaceful death, it calls for blood and it […]

‘Doctor Who: 8×10 – In the Forest of the Night’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Writing this I know that I have to point out that I love Doctor Who, I doubt anything would make me stop watching it…but I have to be honest.  In the Forest of the Night is placed before the final two episodes that make up the finale, and we all know what that means, this […]

‘WWE: Night of Champions 2014′ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

Night of Champions is a pay per view concept that should, really, make it one of the biggest WWE shows of the year. A show where, on paper, every WWE championship is defended, is something that should be promoted as a huge deal, but sadly this didn’t feel so big. The lead up to the […]

‘Summerslam 2014′ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

It has been a trying time for WWE recently. Since the launch of the WWE Network a lot has happened. Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Title, got injured and was forced to forfeit the belt. Cena won the belt soon afterwards. The Shield split up, Roman Reigns began his ascension to the top of […]

‘Adventure Time: Season 2′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Adventure Time is very easy to love, it’s like bite sized doses of pop culture candy with an extra coating of sugar just to keep you on an energy high.  Now that Adventure Time: Season 2 is coming out in the UK we can almost overdose on the tales of Finn and Jake. This season […]

‘Doctor Who: 8×09 – Flatline’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When Doctor Who is at its best it can be imaginative and scary, especially for a younger audience.  There is always a fine balance though between the scientific jargon that can be used before the show loses its audience, or they just close off their brains while the Time Lord spews out big words.  Flatline […]

by Phil Wheat

Stars: J.G Quintel, William Salyers, Sam Marin, Mark Hamill, Roger Craig Smith, Janie Haddad Tompkins | Created by J.G Quintel In my review of The Amazing World of Gumball: Season 1 I spoke about how, as a kid I adored two cartoons in particular – Beavis and Butthead and Ren & Stimpy.

‘Doctor Who: 8×08 – Mummy on the Orient Express’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Oh Doctor you are a complicated Time Lord, just when I was worried about the direction of the show you pull me back in.  I’m not convinced that this is some kind of miraculous fix, but I admit this week I was hooked, though at first just a little worried.  With the subject matter there […]

‘WWE: The Best of Sting’ Blu-ray Review

by Phil Wheat

It’s been quite a while since I’ve personally reviewed a WWE Home Video release – we have some great guys here on Nerdly that are more knowledgeable and are certainly bigger fans of wrestling than I. But when said home video release involves one of my all-time favourite wrestlers, Sting, there was no way I […]

‘Doctor Who: 8×07 – Kill The Moon’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Oh Doctor Who, using big words and gibberish to make us believe we have been entertained and what we are seeing is not silly at all.  With an episode titled Kill the Moon, I did wonder where the imagination had gone from naming episodes, but that won’t stop me from watching it.  Perhaps the most […]

‘WWE Battleground 2014′ DVD Review

by Nicky Johnson

As one of WWE’s B pay per views, you can’t really set expectations too high. Fortunately, Battleground delivered a mostly okay PPV, with some pretty awesome high points and equally disappointing lost points and bad booking. We start the main card with the Usos successfully defending their titles in a pretty good 2 out of […]

‘Doctor Who: 8×06 – The Caretaker’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

I am a Doctor Who fan, I want to like every episode I watch but sometimes this just isn’t the case.  Last week when I watched the teaser for The Caretaker I was worried, and having now watched it I was right to be, but also wrong because in truth it wasn’t that bad.  My […]

‘Doctor Who: 8×05 – Time Heist’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

There always has to be those throw away episodes in a television show, where the episode has no real importance to the overall continuity but just works as a filler.  Time Heist arguably signposted that it would be one of these episodes and to be fair has done little to dissuade me from changing my […]

‘Hannibal: The Complete Season Two’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller What is it about the character of Hannibal Lecter that draws us in? Gaspard Ulliel’s version in Hannibal Rising may not have had the same success as Anthony Hopkins or Mads Mikkelsen but Lecter is adored by the fans, even as one […]
