by Rhys Payne

Momentum is a new Netflix Original comedy special which is written by, and staring Mo Gilligan. Having only known of Mo from his minor role on the Big Narstie show, where he is almost the side-kick to Bigs’ antics on the show, I was not aware of how funny and extremely clever Gilligan is – […]

‘Big Mouth: Season 3′ Review (Netflix Original)

Having seen the other two seasons of Big Mouth I was very excited for the third season to finally be released on Netflix. If you haven’t heard of the show, it’s an animated series that deals with a very important period in a child’s development – namely puberty – but also deals with many other […]

‘The Politician’ Review (Netflix Original)

by Rhys Payne

The Netflix original The Politician is a fascinating look into the possible consequences of unhealthy obsessions with ambition and determination which is something not many TV shows look into. Too many times we see a determined character who risks friendships, relationships, family etc to achieve the thing they crave and they achieve their dreams making […]

‘Jeff Dunham: Beside Himself’ Review (Netflix Original)

by Rhys Payne

I have been waiting for a new Jeff Dunham comedy special for the longest time and finally Beside Himself was put on Netflix, a special for which I could not be more excited.

‘Simon Amstell: Set Free’ Stand-up Special Review (Netflix)

by Chris Cummings

Like many Brits probably do, I know Simon Amstell for his run as one of the hosts of the BBC 2 late-night music-quiz comedy show Never Mind the Buzzcocks. He was a nerdy, sarcastic comedian who was often very funny with his interactions with the guests on the show. Aside from that, though, I haven’t […]

‘GLOW: Season 3′ Review (Netflix)

by Chris Cummings

I’ve been a fan of Netflix’s GLOW show since it first landed a couple of years ago on the platform. It’s a total joyous, wild, funny, gritty and dramatic program that ticks so many of the boxes I look for in my television drama. Oh, and it’s about pro-wrestling, something else I’m pretty damn fond […]

Orange is the New Black has finally reached it’s final season, and that season dropped on Netflix just a few days ago. I’ve been a big fan of the show since day-one, and am conflicted about the chosen end to the show. On one hand I feel like there’s more story to tell, and losing […]
