The title alone intrigued […]

‘Adventure Time: The Complete Season One’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Unless you’ve seen Adventure Time it’s hard to explain exactly what it is, because it’s not just a cartoon, it’s an experience.  It’s like your brain has taken a sugar overdose and gone on the craziest hyperactive journey it could think up.  When watching Adventure Time: The Complete Season One for review, I found after I’d made […]

‘Mrs Brown’s Boys Live Tour: Mrs Brown Rides Again’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When you watch social media it’s always interesting to see what people find funny, or what they are a fan of.  One thing I’ve noticed when it comes to comedy on television is that some people see Mrs Brown’s Boys as the worst comedy you could watch, and I can’t help but wonder why? I […]

‘The Following: The Complete First Season’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to television shows it’s fair to say that Kevin Williamson knows what he is doing.  He’s worked on successes like Dawson’s Creek and The Vampire Diaries and they were (and are) fairly big successes.  With The Following I heard good things, but in watching it for review I can’t help but feel […]

Competition: Win ‘A Serbian Film’ on DVD

by Phil Wheat

A Serbian Film was greeted with vast controversy over its portrayal of sexual violence and is consequently one of the most cut films in British cinema history having over 4 minutes chopped out of the original film by the BBFC and is still banned in multiple countries. The story follows Milos, a retired adult film star, who has […]

‘Adam Hills: Happyism Live’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

There are many things that make Adam Hills a good comedian, but the fact is he is more than that and it’s all from his own choice.  When the Special Olympics were riding the success of the Olympics and making people realise that this sports events were just as important, he became in many ways […]

‘Josh Widdicombe Live: And Another Thing’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

I will admit this week feels like a long week, turns out watching so many stand-up comedy DVD releases is a tiring task.  I’ve sat through the comedy created to shock, the comedy related to make you think a little and comedy that didn’t really need brain power at all.  I’ve still got a few […]

‘Sean Lock: Purple Van Man’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

The name Sean Lock: Purple Van Man is very fitting.  I saw him do an interview about the release and he said that what he was aiming for was to be the “white van man” of comedy, only where a white van man believes he knows everything, the Purple Van Man doesn’t really know anything, […]

‘The Americans: The Complete First Season’ DVD Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Noah Emmerich, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati | Created by Joseph Weisberg There’s this plot conceit that many shows, especially thrillers have. Call it a ticking timebomb conceit to perhaps call to mind a sneaky metaphor. It’s the idea that someone, has a secret, perhaps a dangerous one, brewing way beneath the surface. A […]

‘Reginald D. Hunter Live: In The Midst of Crackers’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

I think it’s easy to say that Reginald D. Hunter didn’t have the best of years in 2013 in the United Kingdom, though he came out on top because of the idiocy of the people who took offence.  Let’s just say that the “Professional Footballers’ Association” really should have been aware of the language used […]

‘Roy Chubby Brown’s Who Ate All the Pies? Live’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Comedy is about humour, but you’d never guess that sometimes.  Very often especially on the internet you’ll see people who seem to decide what is funny and they decide who should have retired by now.  They tend to proclaim this to people who are like minded then enjoy the feeling that people agree with them.  […]
