‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×06: Mid-Western Assassin’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

What exactly is horror? There seems to be a lot of discussion on that at the moment. This week’s American Horror Story: Cult is an interesting look at a show that built up a fan-base based on horror themes. With all fear removed from the “cult” for the audience though, where is the horror in […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×05 – Choose Your Pain’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Star Trek: Discovery is a show that may be connected to a long legacy, but it also has to pave way for its own future. With Choose Your Pain, we see a harsher side of the Federation and the crew of Discovery that at moments had me thinking “Not my Star Trek”. When Captain Lorca […]

‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams 1×05: Real Life’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When will Virtual Reality go too far, becoming a little too comfortable for us to want to leave it? That is the question raised in Real Life, the latest installment in Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. Sarah (Anna Paquin) is a policewoman who shares so-called “headspace” with George (Terrence Howard) a brilliant game designer. Both […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×10: The Rickchurian Mortydate’ Review

by Steven Riley

After the incredible end to season two, Rick and Morty had a huge act to follow with the culmination of their third entry. Despite hinting that Evil Morty could become the antagonist as season three draws to a close, the last episode seemed to take a different tact by making Beth finding herself and the […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×04 – The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If Star Trek: Discovery is going to have one problem it is that fans expect a certain continuity in the show. It was built-in the original series and continue to Next Generation and beyond. With a teasing of a darker Star Trek, is Discovery testing the limits of what is Star Trek, or aiming for […]

‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams 1×04: Crazy Diamond’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams are a set of weird stories that ask you to look deeper into what each episode is telling you. This week Crazy Diamond is an episode that really does feel like a dream, or to be more exact, a world where dreams are not meant to be, and everything is […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×05: Holes’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Everything is fake news, it is all a lie. What else could we expect from a show that is based around the election of somebody like Donald Trump? This week’s episode of American Horror Story: Cult is called Holes, and while Trypophobia may play a part, this week is more about revealing everything. Ally (Sarah […]

Stars: Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White | Executive Producer Matt Nix It should come as no surprise that Fox are fully utilising the X-Men world to dip into television. Marvel have been using other characters in their universe well, it […]

‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams 1×03: The Commuter’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

With the episodes of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams we’ve seen so far there is a certain message being given to the audience, and they have to interpret it and understand what they are seeing. This week’s episode The Commuter makes an interesting of seemingly being set in modern-day times, but of course with a […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×03 – Context is for Kings’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Now that the first two episodes are out-of-the-way, Star Trek: Discovery can get down to business with the real story.  Feeling much more like the traditional “first episode after a pilot”, Context is for Kings feels like this is the real start of Star Trek: Discovery. Finding herself on the U.S.S. Discovery Michael Burnham (Sonequa […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×09: The ABC’s of Beth’ Review

by Steven Riley

Whether or not season three of Rick and Morty is considered the best one so far or not, it’s difficult to argue it has been the most varied. From the incredible opening episode that resulted in the destruction of the intergalactic governments, Council of Ricks and Beth and Jerry’s manage, the majority of the episodes […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×04: 11/9′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there has been one thing about American Horror Story: Cult, it is the mystery of just how the “clowns” came together. This week we see a flashback that provides that answer, and also reveals a few surprises that make us re-evaluate a few characters. More importantly, we get to take a glimpse into just […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×01 & 1×02′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there was one thing that has worried fans about Star Trek: Discovery, it is if we would finally get the new show we felt we deserve. After all the expected debate on the choice of a female captain (ugh, why is that still an issue?) now we get down to the important thing, watching […]

‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams 1×02: Impossible Planet’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After last week’s episode of Electric Dreams hooked us, the job of this week’s episode is to show it wasn’t a fluke. This week’s Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is Impossible Planet, which will test how much of a hopeless romantic you are. When Brian and Ed (Jack Reynor and Benedict Wong), two space tourism […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×08: Morty’s Mind Blowers’ Review

by Steven Riley

After a heavy episode last week, Rick and Morty changed up the pace again with a more self-contained, ‘clip show’-style adventure. As Rick himself alludes to at the start, episode eight, ‘Morty’s Mind Blowers’ is the equivalent of the Inter-Dimensional cable from the seasons prior. While the prior two episodes have had some memorable bits, […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×03: Neighbours from Hell’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If I was to write that American Horror Story: Cult is a brave show to air on television, I’m sure many would say “no, it just sucks.” The thing is with this year’s choice of subject, which has a focus more on the psychological, it is going to divide viewers. This is a year that […]

‘Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

It feels like recently I’ve been reviewing way too many superhero series. I’ve gone from the dorky style of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, to the slightly more serious The Flash. Now it is time to look at Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season, which takes things even more seriously. In Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season Oliver […]

‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams 1×01: The Hood Maker’ Review

When the ads for Electric Dreams started to appear on television, the similarities with Black Mirror caught my attention straight away. Then it was revealed that the show was Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, and that made it a must watch. Now the first episode, The Hood Maker has launched, does the show live up […]

by Paul Metcalf

After last episodes introduction to the main characters, this week’s American Horror Story: Cult takes the task of fleshing out the characters, and introducing new ones. It also gets busy with reminding us that fear is this year’s theme, and that scary clowns are just a small part of it. After the events of last […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×07: The Ricklantis Mixup’ Review

by Steven Riley

SPOILER ALERT: This review contains spoilers for season 3, episode 7 of Rick and Morty. If you have yet to see ‘The Ricklantis Mixup’ we advise you to do so. Now, if possible. Rick and Morty seems to work best when the shows take an ambitious (or ridiculous idea) and just roll with it. Pickle […]
