‘Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Doctor Who is going through a change, with a new companion and of course the end of the Moffat era. Right now though this is Christmas day, and we have Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio. Can Doctor Who do a super hero story that isn’t drowned in pure cheese? Doctor Who (Peter Capaldi) […]

‘The Missing: Series 2′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Fans of The Missing will remember the show for its well spun web of mystery that kept us guessing. Now that The Missing: Series 2 has been released, the question surrounding it is, can it top the story that the show had already told? The simple answer is yes, and it is all thanks to […]

‘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 […]

‘Braquo: The Complete Season Four’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

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 […]

After a week’s break Ash vs Evil Dead is back, and Bruce Campbell’s iconic character is showing how idiotic he can be once more by going ‘Home Again’. With plenty of homages hidden in this one, Ash and our other heroes are going back to the cabin where it all started, and giving Ted Raimi […]

‘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. […]

Things get more serious this week on Ash vs Evil Dead as the aftershocks of Ash’s therapy have to be dealt with. Thankfully this doesn’t mean that we’ve seen the last of the puppet that was such a hit last week. This time, we see Kelly have to lend a hand in ending the naughty […]

‘Billy Connolly: High Horse Tour Live’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

There are many comedians that spring to mind when you try to decide who are the funniest, but one of the most constant names to turn up on lists has to be Billy Connolly. We don’t tend to see much of his stand-up routines anymore, so when Billy Connolly: High Horse Tour Live was announced […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×07′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a Buffy fan you’ll remember the episode Normal Again. This episode featured Buffy drifting from two realities, one where she is in a mental asylum, the other the usual Buffy world we expect. This episode was haunting and left us wondering what the character’s reality truly was. Now Ash vs Evil Dead […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×06′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

It would take a lot to beat the second episode of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2, featuring one of the best slapstick scenes of the series. We now have that episode, featuring a family reunion of sorts. This reunion is not only in story terms but also a returning actor from the very first […]

‘The Code: Series 2′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Oh, the evil Internet, full of evil hackers looking at the best way to steal your money or sell you to the highest bidder. It seems to be the popular tool for modern television series to create something that stands out. Does The Code: Series 2 stand out as something special though, or just another […]

‘The Fall: Series 3′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

In some ways, it is surprising that the third series of The Fall was made, especially with Jamie Dornan filming the 50 Shades of Grey movies. The second series ended in such a way that it could have been a good way to end, but that would have missed out on a much darker way to […]

‘The Night Of’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

In a perfect world, we would like the judicial system to work with the aim of protecting the innocent, but in this cynical age we know that this doesn’t always happen. The Night Of takes us through a trip through this system, showing just how dark and heartless it can be. When Nasir (Riz Ahmed) […]

‘Luke Cage: Complete First Season’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Based in Harlem, Luke Cage, Netflix’s latest Marvel show, has a different feel to Daredevil and Jessica Jones but lives in the same universe as the two. Does he have enough strength to not only save Harlem though but to stand out in his own show? After the events of Jessica Jones, we find Cage […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×04′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Dealing with the fallout from last week’s Ash vs Evil Dead, episode four leaps straight into the action. What it also does though is fall into the trap of being an episode about progression. A stop-gap between a major plot point, and hopefully one to come in the next episode. With the Delta still possessed and […]

If the rise of Nordic Noir has managed to achieve anything, it is to provide viewers with a whole new world of refreshing shows that we weren’t yet aware of. One of these shows is Beck, and with Beck the Series: Volume 2 we are not let down when it comes to quality. Based on […]

‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×02′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

With the strong start of Ash vs Evil Dead, attention now turns to the second episode to see if it delivers. With most of the action taking place in a morgue, Bruce Campbell is given the chance to show he still has it when it comes to slapstick comedy. Ruby is back (Lucy Lawless) and […]
