‘Apple Tree Yard’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

The BBC seem to be doing well with dramas featuring big stars. Bringing in the likes of Tom Hiddleston these names attract a lot of attention, and very good performances. Apple Tree Yard is the latest, featuring one of the bests British actors in the form of Emily Watson. The question is does it make […]

‘Humans 2.0′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While I’ve known of Humans and how well the show was received, to my shame I never really watched it. When I got the chance to watch Humans 2.0 though, I decided to dive in and take it from the starting point of the second series. Through the catch-up I was able to pick-up on […]

‘The Bureau: Complete Season One’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

The fictional world of espionage is normally presented to us in the form of people like James Bond where it’s all about action and seducing beautiful women. The Bureau: Complete Season One though gives us a more realistic and deadly interpretation based on real accounts from the French Intelligence Service. When intelligence officer Guillaume Debailly […]

‘The Missing: Series 2′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

‘Modus: Complete Season One’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Part of my love of Nordic Noir is the dark style and tone of a lot of the shows. Modus is my latest for review, and is a beautifully dark tale pitting killer against psychologist. Almost pitch black in its style, the fact it reminded me of Hannibal in many ways is a very good […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×10′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Let me get this out of the way first: I have to admit that the finale of the first season of Ash vs Evil Dead worried me. There was a certain feel to it that made the show appear to be going in more generic direction. However the second season took away those worries and […]

When it comes to my taste in television, I think my reviews give away my liking for Nordic Noir and European shows that look to the darker side of society. One that I’ve always managed to miss has been Braquo, but now I’ve managed to change this. Is Braquo: The Complete Season Four release a […]

‘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. […]
