The episode we’ve been waiting for is finally here. This third episode of season 2 of Ash vs Evil Dead sees the debut of Ted Raimi. This is not only something of an Evil Dead reunion, but also Xena as I’m sure you’ll all know he was Joxer in that 90s fantasy show… you all remember […]

‘Luke Cage 1×03: Who’s Gonna Take the Weight?’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Bring da motherfuckin’ ruckus.” This show has a fucking soundtrack. Sixteen Marvel movies hit theaters every year and I’d be shocked if you could find someone on the street who remembered a single bar of original music used in any of them. Three episodes into Luke Cage and not only have we heard Charles Bradley, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Nirvana, Isaac […]

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“My woman was pregnant when I went in. Haven’t seen her or my son since he was thirteen. I have this nightmare that one day he’s gonna come to the shop, ask for a cut, sit in my chair… and I’m not even gonna know him.” “Code of the Streets,” Luke Cage‘s gorgeously shot and unevenly […]

‘Westworld 1×01: The Original’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

O, reason not the need: our basest beggars Are in the poorest thing superfluous: Allow not nature more than nature needs, Man’s life’s as cheap as beast’s: thou art a lady; If only to go warm were gorgeous, Why, nature needs not what thou gorgeous wear’st, Which scarcely keeps thee warm. But, for true need, […]

‘Luke Cage 1×01: Moment of Truth’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“UPS ain’t the only brown that delivers.” Actor Mike Colter’s guarded, injured, and ultimately good-hearted turn as Luke Cage was one of the few pleasures the first season of Jessica Jones had to offer. On his own and grounded in a much more immediate and organic sense of place and moment, he doesn’t disappoint. Luke Cage, adapted from the […]

‘The Out-Laws (aka Clan): The Complete First Season’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

It is fair to say that if the UK or America handled The Out-Laws (aka Clan) it would be just another Suburban Housewives. Thankfully though the Dutch have a darker sense of humour and we are treated to a tale of potential homicide where things never go to plan. The Out-Laws is the tale of […]

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Promise me, Ned.” Olenna Tyrell sits all in black in the water gardens of Dorne, surrounded by beautiful women bent on revenge. “Cersei stole the future from me,” she tells Ellaria. Her enemy’s crime is so vast, so terrible that it cannot be described as the destruction of places or people. Instead it is the transformation, […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×09: Battle of the Bastards’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I lived with him.” Violence is a form of intimacy. To cut into another person’s body, to reveal the secret machinery of their existence, is an incredible violation, yes, but it’s also about the closest, physically, two people can be. The dead of the Battle of Winterfell form a hill together, a single massive edifice […]

When it comes to television shows, a lot tend to follow a successful formula. In the cutthroat world where shows have to survive year to year, it seems that “different” can be a risk not worth taking. However The Booth at the End is different and with the release of the show on DVD we […]

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“He died fighting.” The Blackfish dies offscreen in a lonely stairwell, his last words a wry observation that he hasn’t been in a proper sword fight in years and that he’ll most likely embarrass himself. The Waif dies in the dark under Braavos, skewered by the girl she tormented and beat, her face given to […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×07: The Broken Man’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Violence is a disease.” Possession, loss, reclamation; these are mile markers on the endless circuit of war down which great houses and their hapless draftees trudge, marching ever lower on a corkscrew path like a frozen whirlpool, like a huge mouth sucking up men and spitting out corpses. But why? Why keep fighting even, as […]

‘The Tunnel: Sabotage’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

With the release of The Tunnel, it had a big job to do. Being the remake of The Bridge, it had to make it out of the Nordic Noir show’s shadow. With the first season it arguable managed to do this, but can it do it again with The Tunnel: Sabotage? The Tunnel: Sabotage brings together the team of […]

‘WWE Extreme Rules 2016’ Review

WWE’s annual Extreme Rules PPV always finds itself full of gimmick matches such as table matches, ladder matches, street fights and things of that nature, so it’s no surprise that the 2016 version of Extreme Rules is also full of these types of matches. Sometimes it can result in overkill, other times it can result […]
