‘Rick And Morty 2×02: Mortynight Run’

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Oh hi Morty! I’m Krombopulos Michael, I’m an assassin. I buy guns from your grandpa.” Part of Rick And Morty‘s strength as a show is its willingness to grow without changing, to texture what’s already there rather than shake up its characters’ motivations and personalities. Case in point, Rick gives Morty the time-honored experience of learning […]

‘True Detective 2×07: Black Maps and Motel Rooms’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“When I ran out of the woods.” It starts with Ray, at a loss as to how to help Ani come down from MDMA, offering to roll her a joint in a seedy motel room while Paul, expression wooden, gets blackmailed via anonymous text. These people, burnouts and fuckups that they are, weren’t prepared for […]

‘Hannibal 3×09: And the Woman Clothed With the Sun’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I know what you’re afraid of. It isn’t pain or solitude. It’s indignity. You’re a little bit like a cat that way.” He’s been dragged through the tabloids, stripped of his fancy clothes, and deprived of his mystique in the eyes of the public and of his former victims, but even a Hannibal dressed in […]

‘Review 2×01: Bare-Knuckled Brawl, Blackmail, Glory Holes’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“The destruction of my life was anything but pointless.” With those words from ever-optimistic host Forrest MacNeil, the exquisite train wreck that is season 2 of 2014′s surprise hit, Review, gets underway. Forrest is back and as full of bluster and forced good cheer as ever, convinced that his having shredded his personal life on […]

‘The Blacklist #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nicole Philips | Art by Beni Lobel | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp I approached The Blacklist #1 with some nervousness, being both not a watcher of the television series on which it is based (though I hear good things, and who doesn’t love James Spader?) and not in general […]

‘Life is Strange – Episode 4: Dark Room’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When Life is Strange Episode 4: Dark Room was downloading I knew that it would be a tough one to get through. I made certain choices that pushed my game a certain way, and now I had to face them. Without giving away spoilers, I’d saw we were taught that messing with time has consequences, […]

‘WWE: Elimination Chamber 2015′ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

There are plenty of rumours about why the Elimination Chamber has been removed from the normal pay-per-view list, but it did not stay away long. WWE: Elimination Chamber 2015 became a WWE Network special but here in the UK we also get a DVD release. Read on for my thoughts… The timing of the Elimination […]

‘Poly Bridge’ Early Access Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Building a bridge should be easy; it should be just creating a road that goes from point A to B over a unpassable area. Play Poly Bridge though and you’ll find that there is a lot standing in the way of holding a bridge up in the air, and physics suck. Poly Bridge tends to […]

‘True Detective 2×06: Church in Ruins’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Christ, you had to show me this?” It’s the orgy episode, folks. You knew it was coming and now, like the sweaty, bloated captains of industry who remain clothed while their nude pleasure slaves gyrate around them, it has come. And ‘Church in Ruins’ is every bit the soggy disappointment that comparison would lead you […]

‘Rick And Morty 2×01: A Rickle in Time’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“If I die in a cage I lose a bet.” Hearing Justin Roiland’s grotesquely burp-punctuated line delivery after a year of Rick And Morty‘s absence from the air feels like being rebaptized in slime at the world’s worst and most exciting revival church. ‘A Rickle in Time,’ no relation to the beloved series of children’s books by […]

‘Hannibal 3×08: The Great Red Dragon’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin
