The Americans 1×09 – “Safe House” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Annet Mahendru, Holly Taylor | Created by Joseph Weisberg There’s an interesting idea raised this week on The Americans. It’s a idea that is always something that rolls around in a show about covert operations and that idea is the shifting of paradigms. We’ve seen from the get-go that Elizabeth and Philip are people […]

The Walking Dead 3×15 – “This Sorrowful Life” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Sarah Wayne Callies, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus | Created by Robert Kirkman Redemption is such a strong facet for the television show character. When we met Merle way back in season one, he was the stereotypical racist jackass. It’s no wonder that Rick decided to handcuff him and leave […]

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Timothy Olyphant, Nick Searcy, Joelle Carter, Jacob Pitts, Erica Tazel, Walton Goggins, Patton Oswalt | Created by Elmore Leonard, Graham Yost The main thrust of this season has been all about finding Drew Thompson before the Detroit mob does, and while it took up almost all of the screen time thus far, they’ve still left room for […]

The Walking Dead 3×14 – “Prey” Review

by Nathan Smith

‘Prey’ is an effective episode setting up the endgame to come in the dawning war between Rick and The Governor. It smartly focuses on one half of the equation and barely even registers with the prison group save for the cold open with Michonne by the fireside and a brief but unsettling apperance by Rick […]

The Americans 1×08 – “Mutually Assured Destruction” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Annet Mahendru, Holly Taylor | Created by Joseph Weisberg There’s a great quandary that lies in the middle of ‘Mutually Assured Destruction.’ If Philip and Elizabeth’s marraige is a sham, if they’re together just because of the so-called mission, do they really have to stay married? It’s a thought that should cross everyone’s […]

‘WWE TLC 2012′ Blu-ray Review

by Phil Wheat

The final pay-per-view event of the WWE calendar, TLC: Tables/Ladders/Chairs was originally marked out for its innovative high-flying, high-risk matches. However since the departure of many of the WWE’s rope-walking risk takers the TLC PPV has become something of a damb squib, especially considering the event sits in between the much more high profile Survivor […]

‘WWE Survivor Series 2012′ Blu-ray Review

by Phil Wheat

Survivor Series is one of WWE’s top pay-per-view’s, along with Wrestlemania, Royal Rumble and Summerslam, and with good reason – it is officially WWE’s second longest running PPV having debuted in 1987 and still continuing to be as relevant today as it was then. Survivor Series 2012 marks the 26th annual show of the PPV […]

‘Tales From the Crypt 2×03: Cutting Cards’ Review

by Nathan Smith

‘Cutting Cards’ may be one of the best episodes of Tales from the Crypt out there. It’s not necessarily horror but still has overtones of it, especially in the last third. Overall, it’s just a pitch black comedy in the guise of two-hander (fitting words for how the episode ends, eh?) between two titans of […]

‘Tales From the Crypt 2×02: The Switch’ Review

by Nathan Smith

Out of all the episodes in seven seasons of Tales From the Crypt, this particular entry, ‘The Switch,’ feels less like an episode of the titular show and rather more like a twisted moral play. It’s a play about the vain and how changing yourself for someone isn’t necessarily the right nor best thing to […]

‘Tales From the Crypt 2×01: Dead Right’ Review

by Nathan Smith

Two things stick out very vividly in memory from watching ‘Dead Right’ early on in my youthful days late, late Saturday nights (right after my local news). One, Demi Moore was a foxy chick. She was a two-sided coin, gorgeous and tough edged. A totally memorable girl. And two, Jeffery Tambor, long before he became known to […]

‘Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E’ DVD Review

Nostalgia is always a popular tool, especially in the DVD market. Shows like the Man from U.N.C.L.E that don’t have a release yet on DVD in the UK are sought after by people who remember the show and want to relive them on a format that is now seen as the mainstream choice. Return of the Man From U.N.C.L.E. could be […]

‘Misfits: Season 3′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

After series two of Misfits ended it had a lot to prove, not only to itself in a way but to the audience. With the loss of Robert Sheehan as Nathan it was losing one of its best characters, to some he was most definitely the best and ending series two the way it did with almost […]
