‘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 […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×08’ Review

by Rhys Payne

We never managed to get that drag mother versus daughter lip-sync that I believed was obvious from the moment the cast was announced. The family members Tamisha Imann and Lala Ri have now both been eliminated, with Lala going home last week and Tamisha the week before. Despite being “obvious” I would have secretly liked […]

‘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 […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×07’ Review

In last weeks episode of the US version of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, we saw the elimination of the people’s queen Tamisha Imann.

by Rhys Payne

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, we saw Joey Jay sashay-away which is a shame as she bought a perspective new and exciting view of drag so it’ll be exciting to see where she end up in the coming months! Additionally, in the last episode we saw one of the best-crafted looks […]

‘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 […]

‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race 13×05’ Review

by Rhys Payne

In last weeks episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race we bid farewell to the gorgeous Kahmora Hall, which must be particularly difficult considering her ‘sister’ Jaida Essence Hall won the previous season of Drag Race. We also bore witness to one of the greatest lip-sync performances in drag race herstory by the dancing diva Denali, […]

by Rhys Payne

So last weeks opening episode of Ru Paul’s Drag Race Season 13 received mixed reviews from fans around the world. While the twist of lip-syncs as soon as the queens entered the werk room was, at first, very exciting it fizzled out quickly when everyone had to watch the same scene played over and over […]

‘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 […]
