‘Twin Peaks 3×07′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Twin Peaks so far has been moving at a steady pace, welcoming us back to the world of Twin Peaks, and keeping us questioning when things would really get moving.

‘Doctor Who 10×10: The Eaters of Light’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Knowing what is coming up in Doctor Who may have stolen some of the limelight off The Eaters of Light, but that doesn’t mean that it is a bad episode. If anything, this episode is about teaching The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) that he can’t always be the hero, sometimes he has to take a step […]

‘House of Cards: Season 5, Episodes 7-13′ Review

by Catherina Gioino

There comes a certain point while watching a reality TV show that you start to wonder just how real the show is. Then comes the frightening opposite of it, when watching a dramatically licensed TV show based on daily life causes you to timidly question how real it truly has become. Unfortunately, the more we delve into […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×06′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is still stuck in Dougie, that doesn’t mean that Twin Peaks can’t push a few buttons for fans. This week has a definite feel of Fire Walk with Me as well as a very interesting introduction to a returning, but until now unseen character that fans have been dying to […]

‘Doctor Who 10×09: Empress of Mars’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Doctor Who has been on quite a roll this season, and there was bound to be an episode that came along that was a bit of a filler. Empress of Mars feels to be that filler episode, and what we are given is a story that is simple, okay. After seeing an unexpected message on […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×05′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While it is so good to have Twin Peaks back, it is even better to have a weekly dose of David Lynch directed goodness. This week’s episode may test people’s patience if they are looking for answers, but for those who want a good old slice of Twin Peaks, this is exactly what they get. […]

‘Doctor Who 10×08: The Lie of the Land’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When politics inspires a show like Doctor Who, we tend to see the extremes of what can happen. This week’s episode handles the nature of fascism, and that ever popular topic of fake news. What could go wrong? With Earth now under the control of The Monks, Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) go […]

‘The Legacy: Season Three’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When watching dramas that come out of Europe, we tend to think that we’ll get some good Nordic Noir where there is plenty of murder and mystery. The Legacy though is a Danish family drama with no actual murder at all (well to be fair there is a death)… When Hannah (Karla Løkke) tragically dies while […]

Stars: Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Paul Sparks, Derek Cecil, Neve Campbell, Joel Kinnaman | Created by Beau Willimon But is it really deja vu? Is it really that far off to believe somehow, the House of Cards universe suddenly finds itself feasible? Rather, are we so induced into whatever universe we find ourselves in that […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×04′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

This episode is the one we’ve been waiting for, with Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) coming face to face with Gordon Cole (David Lynch) and Albert Rosenfield (Miguel Ferrer). Typically for Twin Peaks though, nothing is as it seems. With Agent Cooper playing happy families as Dougie Jones, the other “Coop” faces his old boss and Albert. […]

‘Twin Peaks: Season 3 – Episodes 1 & 2′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Twin Peaks is finally back, and yes as almost every review is probably saying, it is worth the wait. What we have though is something a little different from the Twin Peaks we know. This is David Lynch giving us his full vision, and while special, don’t expect to understand everything you see. In many […]
