‘Sex Education: Season 3’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

If you have ever met me in real life I can guarantee that at some point throughout the conversation I have brought up the fact that I appeared as an extra in Netflix’s Sex Education season two. I have not been able to find myself in the show yet (which I am a little disappointed […]

‘Prank Encounters: Season 2’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

A little while ago I reviewed the first season of Prank Encounters that was hosted by the enchanting Gaten Mazzerato. I hadn’t heard anything about the show since, so I assumed that there would be no second season but to my surprise, Netflix released another season! This is a show that is somewhat similar to […]

‘Nailed It: Season 5’ Review

by Rhys Payne

Nailed It has created its own niche in the television market, so much so that I can’t imagine the show coming to an end any time soon! There are so many tweaks and alterations season by season (like, for example, pairing the contestants up – which they did for this specific season), to make the […]

‘Waffles and Mochi’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

On March 21st it was ‘International Puppet Day’ which celebrated ventriloquists all over the world (don’t worry I didn’t know either!) and I have recently reignited my love for puppetry as an art form and how entertaining it can be done… if done right. Now I love the likes of Jeff Dunham and Avenue Q, […]

‘Marriage Or Mortgage’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Now let me start this weeks review by painting you a picture… Imagine you and your partner have saved up around $30,000 but you have to decide whenever to have the wedding of your dreams OR the house of your dreams (I know which I would choose but that’s beside the point). I know many […]

‘Canine Intervention’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Nothing used to fill me with excitement more than going for a walk and seeing all the cute dogs that were also out and about. This has become less common due to the current global situation… Now if you saw the cover photo for the new Netflix original series Canine Intervention you would be led […]

‘Headspace: A Guide to Mediation’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Having gone through Catholic-based education since I was young, we used to regularly meditate in class as a form of prayer and so all my life I have associated mediation with a form of religious celebration. It was always pitched as an opportunity to focus on the lord etc., so you can imagine my surprise […]

‘We Are The Champions’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

A while ago I reviewed a show called Home Game, which shined a light on the many local sports which people not of that country would not be aware of. This series, We Are The Champions, is somewhat similar – although it is not focused on hyperlocal sports but instead international events that people may […]

‘Bonding: Season 2’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Bonding is one of those programmes that you discover while deep-scrolling through the Netflix archives but turns out to be an incredible show that makes your wonder why is no one talking about it? I originally reviewed the first season of this show almost two years ago before joining the Nerdly team and the reason […]

‘Blown Away: Season 2’ Review

by Rhys Payne

One of the first-ever shows that I reviewed, over two years ago, was a Netflix original series called Blown Away; a show which shines a light of the often ignored art form of glass blowing. I was super excited that this sector was allowed to be shown to a wider audience to get the recognition […]

‘Best Leftovers Ever’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Hosted by: David So, Jackie Thon, Rosemary Schrager Right, let me paint a picture that many people would be familiar with… Let’s imagine that last night you hosted one of the best parties ever or you had a group of friends over to watch your favourite sporting event. I for one think that no gathering […]

‘Big Mouth: Season 4’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

Objectively speaking, I am a massive fan of Big Mouth and have reviewed the show since the first season in 2017. But, for those of you who have not heard of this show before, it’s an animated mature comedy about children going through puberty… Which sounds like it shouldn’t work (and at times does become […]

‘Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun’ Review (Netflix)

I can honestly say that I have never imagined anything, in my entire life, as chaotic as Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun  – the new sketch-based comedy show available on Netflix. This series is brought to you by the creative team called simply Aunty Donna (comprised of Mark Samual Bonanno, Broden Kelly and […]
