‘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

by Paul Metcalf

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 […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×02: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ Review

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 […]

‘The Flash: The Complete Third Season’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Over the last few weeks I’ve managed to review quite a few of the DC television shows. The Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl have been fun to watch, but one thing that has been missing are the crossover episodes that connect the shows with The Flash. Now I’m reviewing The Flash: The Complete Third Season I’m […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×01: Election Night’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

American Horror Story likes to take tropes we see in popular horror and add its own spin. This has proven to be a success, but also a failure for fans. American Horror Story: Cult now looks at fear itself, and looks at how it is affecting the world around us…oh and yes, it also features […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×17 & 3×18′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

What do you expect from David Lynch? That is something that you should ask before you watch the end of Twin Peaks. Many wanted some form of closure, to understand what Twin Peaks was trying to tell us, and of course to witness something special. What we were given was a fitting end to the […]

‘Gotham: The Complete Third Season’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Gotham is a show that has a lot to live up to. We all know Batman, but to take the focus and push it onto James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) instead, and make Bruce Wayne a lesser character is a brave move. Looking at Gotham: The Complete Third Season, we now have a show that is […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×06: Rest and Ricklaxation’ Review

by Steven Riley

As Rick and Morty season three reaches it’s halfway point, we have had already seen the different directions the show can go in… With ‘Pickle Rick’ and ‘Vindicators 3’ we had the more classic Rick and Morty adventures as the writers set up ridiculous yet riotous premises and followed them through with sharp writing and […]

‘Supergirl: The Complete Second Season’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

To many, Supergirl is an important superhero show. Not only is it a successful example of a DC show, but it also flies the flag for female superheroes. With the release of Supergirl: The Complete Second Season, things are bigger and on an even greater scale, but does that make it a success? With Kara […]

‘Game of Thrones 7×07: The Dragon & The Wolf’ Review

by Steven Riley

In it’s early seasons, Game of Thrones gained itself a reputation for it’s climactic and gripping penultimate episodes. Whether it’s Ned Stark’s shocking death in season one, the epic Battle of the Blackwater from season two or the nerve-wrangling massacre of the Red Wedding (I still have flashbacks to this day), the show seemed to […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×16′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

In David Lynch, we trust. That should be what all Twin Peaks fans are thinking right now. What he and Mark Frost have given us in the 16th episode in this return is nothing short of perfect, and is sum of all of the parts that have come before it. Now next week, we have […]

‘Rick and Morty 3×05: The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy’ Review

by Steven Riley

While season three of Rick and Morty has undoubtedly got off to a rollicking start since returning a few weeks ago, it has felt like it’s been missing one thing that made earlier seasons so great – Jerry. While ‘Rickmancing the Stone’ had a few snippets of Morty’s father – the best parts of the episode in […]

‘The Defenders: Season One’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing we know about The Defenders, it is that expectations were high. In a perfect world, this would be The Avengers of the TV world. With Iron Fist not being received well though, does the character weaken the group? When The Hand threaten New York City, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Luke […]

In this week’s Twin Peaks, we were given a journey through different emotions. Through happiness, love, sadness and despair, this was an episode to give any Twin Peaks fans major feels.
