‘Doctor Who: 8×04 – Listen’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Looking at Doctor Who episodes written by Steven Moffat you can see that he understands how to scare viewers, especially the younger ones.  Listen taps into the fear of the unknown and very much like Blink and The Empty Child creates something that really does show an understanding of what is definitely creepy.  Not everything […]

‘WWE Money in the Bank 2014′ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

One of the more interesting of WWE’s annual b-shows, Money in the Bank is the night of the year where a younger talent has the chance to grab the contract that sets them up for a built-in storyline and eventual chance at winning the WWE World Title. Here, there are two ladder matches, one for […]

‘Doctor Who: 8×03 – Robot of Sherwood’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When writing reviews I like to go on my initial thoughts and work from there.  Lately there has been a lot of criticism about the direction the show is going and I’ll admit that there are issues that fans (including me) have a right to complain about.  What this can’t get in the way of […]

‘Supernatural – The Complete Ninth Season’ Blu-ray Review

by Nathan Smith

I personally loved season nine of Supernatural. I felt like it was a return to form for a show that had some dips and dives in its series run. It isn’t easy for anyone to keep someone’s attention over 173 episodes, but the writers, actors, and all crew involved have managed to keep audiences entertained […]

‘WWE Brothers of Destruction’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

As a horror fan I’ve always liked the wrestlers with the darker sides.  The Undertaker and Kane are two wrestlers who have had a certain mystique and managed to get away with the more silly story lines featuring the supernatural.  For the most part though their destructive force has been more of an importance to […]

‘Doctor Who: 8×02 – Into the Dalek’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Trust the Daleks to give Doctor Who a wakeup call, and for me to be torn on whether I liked Into the Dalek or not. Last week I noticed little attempts to rewrite the history of the Doctor, and while it bugged me I let it go, but it happened again this week and this […]

‘Cuckoo: Complete Series 1′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Andy Samberg, Greg Davies, Helen Baxendale, Tyger Drew-Honey | Created by Robin French, Kieron Quirke A cuckoo is a bird that lays its eggs in other bird’s nests, so in human form it’s easy to assume that the Cuckoo is another man moving into a family’s home and encroaching on the territory of the parents.  In […]

‘WWE: OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

After getting past the fact that WWE: OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History is a title that is confusing (should this not be 51-100 maybe?), looking back at the best and worst of WCW is always fun.  There are moments that I’m sure some wrestlers would love to forget but others that […]

‘Doctor Who: 8×01 – Deep Breath’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Finally we have a new episode of Doctor Who and it’s directed by Ben Wheatley, you would think that the BBC were trying to create something special with Deep Breath for Peter Capaldi’s first full episode as the Doctor and I’d say you are right. A little darker than usual with references to past episodes […]

‘Sons of Anarchy 7×01-7×03′ Review

by Nathan Smith

Here’s the thing about the final season of Sons of Anarchy. It’s simultaneously everything I love about the show and everything I hate about the show encapsulated in the first three episodes that were sent out to critics. It’s like this: You know something is bad for you, but despite all protestations, you still hope […]

‘Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fourth Season’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Looking at Boardwalk Empire, especially before I started to watch it I thought it was Sopranos in the probation era, but in truth it’s much more.  Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fourth Season reaches a time when organised crime was growing and the government was slowly taking notice.  The rise of Al Capone was taking form, […]

‘WWE Payback 2014′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

It may be a little boring to say this, but I find that I like WWE more when they get down to the business of actual wrestling.  I’d argue that this is what should be happening on a pay-per-view anyway and yes the storyline has to be present of course but the actual fighting in […]

‘WWE: Ladies and Gentlemen, My Name is Paul Heyman’ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

Now, I have been a “Paul Heyman Guy” or rather a “Paul Heyman Fan” since the nineties when I first discovered Extreme Championship Wrestling and discovered that the man who had previously worked as a manager in WCW, Paul E. Dangerously, was now booking for ECW and later, the owner. I was excited when I […]

WWE Network – Five Months In, let’s take a look.

by Chris Cummings

The WWE launched its much-spoken of, much-publicized and much-advertised by its announcers on television every single week, Network at the end of February and now we are just over five months on from the launch, so I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the Network now that the issues have been […]

The WWE Main Roster Report: Part 4 – The Divas

by Chris Cummings

The WWE main roster is always changing, some wrestlers leave for whatever reason happens to cause their departure, some wrestlers move up the card because management wants to give them a push and some wrestlers move downwards, or stay still, sometimes merely because the creative team has a lack of ideas for their television character.
